We visited kaikoura for two nights and stayed at the point bed and breakfast. The owners are very welcoming and friendly. It's situated on a sheep farm. But more of a tourist attraction than a farm. The room is small but very comfortable with a ensuite shower. The views are stunning and the breakfast is just right to start the... More

The Point is a delightful place to stay, a large bungalow in the classic colonial style, overlooking the sea in a very scenic location. Our room was very well-appointed, with a lovely outlook onto the garden, with a large and stylish bathroom. The bed was most comfortable, we slept very well, and the breakfast was delightful, with a wide range... More

We liked this B&B, although it has just an adequate breakfast and the room is a little small. But, it was very clean and tidy. The hosts are not big conversationalists, but many people prefer that. There was a great deal of noise from barking dogs and baa-ing sheep, but you are on a real farm.

We had a lovely couple of nights in this B&B. The view out of our room was already lovely and from the Breakfast table even better! The room was really clean. We had a warm welcome and got a lot of tipps. It feels really homey with the dogs and the cat around who are always happy to meet and... More

Our room has the most magnificent views of ocean and snow capped mountains and we can hear the birds. This B&B is in a beautiful tranquil spot and has a seal colony 10 mins down the road one way and a seafood caravan the other way. Our room and bathroom are lovely and our hosts warm and welcoming.

The view from the front porch of The View is incredible; snow capped mountains, ocean and crashing waves at the point. What more could you ask for? Gwenda is a wonderful, warm, gracious hostess who willingly shares local knowledge, insight and information. Peter let us help feed a new born lamb.

Lovely B&B with amazing views. Located just outside of town so ideal for walking up to the seal colony. Bedroom and bathroom contained everything we needed for a relaxing stay and Peter & Gwenda were very welcoming hosts.

Great looking old farmhouse on the ocean with a continental breakfast that is more like a full breakfast. Very nice host and hostess, clean and cozy room. Be sure to take in the sheep shearing - it's well worth it. Short ride to town. Easy-to-find location.
