We stayed at Waters Edge for 2 nights while on a short trip to NZ. The lovely appointed bedroom looks right onto the water and to your left amazing snow capped mountains. There is also a warm cosey lounge with a view where we relaxed in the afternoons. We took a really enjoyable walk to the seal colony. We loved Kaikoura township with lots of great eating spots and Marlyin and Keith were friendly and really helpful with local information. Hope to go back soon!
