    Holiday Rental House – 
    4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    The Port is a cliff top lodge above the original Port Robinson on the site of the Harbourmaster's house, so immediate access to the old Port is only a short walk away. We are extremely private and unable to be seen from any other homes or public places in the area. We have uninterrupted views to the eastern horizon and the rising sun and north up the Canterbury Coast to the whale watching region of Kaikoura. The Port has large decks sweeping around the residence making it easy access with great indoor/outdoor flow. A large organic garden produces all your vegetable requirements and a flock of chickens provide eggs for your breakfast. The Port is your private residence as your Hosts live on an adjoining property you have the place to yourselves. We have a two night minmum stay period... more

    Additional Location Information
    Coastal, cliff top, uniterrupted ocean views East & North. Frost free climate. A great place to watch the weather from on a stormy day inside by the fire. The Port is 11 kms from the township of CHEVIOT we are not on any main road so it is very private.We are about 2 kms from the wide sandy beach at Gore Bay to the north and about 2 kms from the wild stoney beach of Manuka Bay to the south. For the effort of a one hour drive to the north you can be in the coastal town of Kaikoura where you can go out whale watching or sit and dine by the sea or a one hour drive to the west will take you to the Thermal Regions of Hanmer Springs where you can sit in hot spring water and look up at snow covered peaks or enjoy a beauty spa treatment. The township is well serviced with restaurants, cafes and lodges should you wish to stay over.

Whilst our weather was gorgeous I think that the Port in a storm would be wonderful too! The location is superb with coastal vistas to the north and plenty to look at on the inside as well. The owners have put a lot of effort into this place and it is easy just to slip into it - especially with...
