Very modern and some brilliant views but ! Comfortable lounge with mini kitchen where you can prepare your own food. Two rooms to choose from both doubles. One has the views on offer from two windows the second views are the very small courtyard and the bins! Breakfasts ok.

We checked in late at 7:00 after a drive from Kaikoura, but we phoned ahead to Rosemary who said that was no problem. We parked in her driveway off the street, and moved our luggage into the ground floor guest room. The lounge and bedroom were spacious, wonderfully furnished with modern comfortable furniture, and we had a 180-degree view of... More

We had the room with the stunning sea view. The room itself was very comfortable, spacious and spotlessly clean. Great bed and shower. Rosemary was a lovely host and made an excellent breakfast. Her homemade muesli is a must-try! And the cooked part of the breakfast was spot on too. We were made to feel so at home and this... More

Pleasant View is well named. We had the larger room which looks out to the bay. Very well appointed, quality chattels and warm bed on a winter's night (electric blankets) and heat pump to warm the large shared lounge. We were the only ones staying so had the use of the lounge to ourselves. Friendly hosts and quiet place to... More
