It may seem that this location is remote, and it is - but it is also an easy 30 min drive into Kaikoura, less than most people's commute to work. In return for the drive, you are given stunning views both day and night (the stars are incredible) and a really genuine Kiwi farm ex…

Thank you for your feedback! Since the quake repairs, for some unknown reason, the water pressure to the kitchen sink hasn't been the same. The plumber is aware and has said he going to fix on the way to another job one day! I'll call him again!

House is lovely. Although our stay wasn't the best. Oven was not working at all and the electrician did not arrive until 7pm, delaying our roast meal until an unholy hour. Hosts do not knock or say a word before entering the house (As if no one has hired the house for themselves)…

My sincere apologies for it seeming like we entered the home without knocking. We actually did knock but due to the loud music no-one heard us. I agree, due to the issue with the oven, we did need to come to the house several times, which is disturbing for guests. We were in the unfortunate position that oven was broken by a prior guest and had to wait for parts and then an electrician(due in the morning arrived at 6:00pm - fixed by 6:20pm (which isn't easy where we live!).
