Very helpful owner, good restuarant suggestions.
Great location. Kitchen/living area are a nice open space.
Lovely location, Pacific Ocean across the road.
The cracked toilet pan. The stove top that hardly worked. Stains on the carpet Rusty railings on deck (upper floor unit) and general lack of maintenance. Very poor quality for the price. Will not be returning.
The wonderful deck sitting outside eating our freshly cooked cray in the sun with a spectacular view of snow covered mountains and blue ocean
I most liked that fact we had young children all the apartment balconys were safe and secure and the we never had to keep them inside all the time!! And we had a beautiful view of the mountains and the beach and walking distance to town
Very comfortable beautiful views off the balcony
Next door neighbours partying all day and night keeps our kids awake
The staff is fatanstic and so willing to help.
the bedroom is a bit small Wifi signal is poor due to our bedroom is a little far from the office
Initial contact/booking in was good as receptionist spent time telling us about the area and places to go, although she made a mistake and only charged for one night instead of two. This was later rectified.
Accommodation can only be described as average although the price was quite high and we expected better. We have stayed in much nicer accommodation for the same price or less
Look outside the view is fantastic ,the sea and mountain ,the hardware is awesome just like your home, u can find everything u wanna , sofa and bed just ok for me ,
Nothing , for me it far worth than the price you spend ,
Excellent recommendation for meals, go to the Green Dolphin
Great view from the balcony and a well set out apartment. Nice and warm and very friendly host to welcome us..
We had the front room with great views over water. The cat is very friendly, makes itself at home. Friendly and helpful owners. Clean, compact unit had everything we needed.
Difficulty accessing wifi in the unit.
Drafty cold units, very small, master bedroom couldn't fit a suitcase !
Exceptionally friendly and helpful welcome with lots of information provided about the local area. Very comfortable accommodation in good location for local area.
Looked like the. Picture on site..even better.Great location and outlook
great room with awesome view. Very friendly owners who were very informative about the area
Would have been good to have complimentary wifi
Very friendly welcome from reception and they were very helpful giving us information about good places to eat and things to do. Accommodation was very clean, modern and cosy. Had sky tv and a washer/dryer which required several drying cycles but eventually did the job. Bathroom was very clean with heating fan which was a bonus. Rooms had heated duvets.
Wifi access was ok, no free wifi available. Otherwise nothing else, really great place to stay!
Kaikoura absolutely lovely and Waterfront Apartments about 10mins walk along promenade into restaurants, bars and Whale Watch Centre. View from balcony apartments splendiferous from top floor. Amanda and staff very helpful and friendly. Nice kitchen area and sitting area. Lovely stay.
If you need lots of Wifi you should possible check how much is free
Service was fantastic. Property was in a great location for us as we enjoy getting out and walking. It was only a short walk to restaurants. Kaikoura was a great place to spend a few days R&R with plenty to do.
WiFi was not great.
The office lady (Mandy) was very kind and friendly. Very clean in the rooms, confortable new beds! Overall, very good!
Could not get WIFI connected.
A great location although the view is spoilt by the Norfolk pines
Bedrooms where a bit small hence why the furniture didn't fit
It was clean & comfortable. Bed was great. It's really handy to a good café plus walks. Owners were helpful.
The washer/dryer was a pain & didn't do what it was meant to do. Great idea if it worked well. I thought the bathroom was fairly small compared to other places we stayed for the same money
Great location on esplanade overlooking sea. Great facilities Graeme excellent host will loan you large pot to cook your freshly caught crayfish in. Reccd great fishing trip he is an expert on local wines supplied with free internet access stayed extra day even with unsettled weather great base Stay in 202 3 balconies great views
not a lot
Clean modern apartment with a view and away from the centre of town
