We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment for the long weekend, with beautiful views of the mountains. The apartment was tastefully decorated with some cool art on the walls, and a modern open plan layout. The kitchen was fully equipped , perfect for us to cook up our catch from our fishing charter. The gas fire gave the perfect ambience...

Lovely apartments to spend a long weekend at. They're very clean and tidy, with a well equipped kitchen and awesome fire place. Ross and Jenny are wonderful hosts, the fire and heat pump were on when we arrived on the Thursday night and nothing was a bother. We had a lovely relaxing weekend there and would be keen to come...

This was a high quality 2-room self-catering apartment with a kitchenette and large comfortable sitting area, and separate bedroom. We were given a small bottle of fresh milk for tea & coffee which was a nice touch as it saved us having to go and find some. The bathroom was fine except that there was no blind in the window,...

This was our first stop (for two nights) at the start of a tour of South Island. Spacious accommodation, all facilities and equipment was provided for self catering including dishwasher and laundry. A good quality and very comfortable bed was much appreciated after our journey from the UK! The management were very helpful and made us feel at home. Good...

Modern, clean, with friendly staff! We had a 1 bedroom with a rollaway for our son. Plenty of space, nice amenities, and after traveling a few days the washer/dryer was a huge help! It is a few kilometres from Kaikoura, but it is peaceful and a nice place to decompress. We will probably return when we have a little more...

We were travelling around North and South islands and thought a studio here would tick the box. We've stayed in studios in Spain, Portugal and other places and knew what to expect, or thought we did. The studios here are actually attached to the one/two bedroom apartments and would appear to have been built/added on when these places were built,...

We stayed for one night in a studio in January 2016. Studio room was modern, but small and soulless and more like a prison cell than a comfortable room with its dark, concrete only, little courtyard in front of it. Encountered a disgusting spot (dry blood?.., see photo) on the bed when wanting to go to bed. It was too...

Stayed 2 nights in a Studio room. Beautiful setting a few minutes drive out of town. This site has apartments with full kitchens, however the Studio room is one bedroom with en-suit facilities, (no kitchen). The room was spacious, plenty big enough for our needs, extremely clean and comfortable. Small table and chairs on the patio. Ground kept very nice....
