Stayed in a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment. Facilities were extremely clean and roomy. Beds were great. Friendliness of staff was first class. The 'must stay' destination if you are going to Kaikoura.

We were a group of 5 sharing an apartment with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a full size single bed was put in the lounge room - which did not impact on the living area at all. We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed the apartments facilities, and were able to walk to cafes and restaurants.

stayed sadly for just one night but splashed out on this fantastic apartment as it was my wifes 60th.The apartment had everything inc.two bedrooms and two bathrooms, it was modern,spotless and sublime. I had pre requested Bubbly from Liz (our host) but we were greeted with balloons, bunting and even a gift from Liz..My wife was overwhelmed.
So thanks again Liz for your wonderful hospitality.

This was a great place. Fantastically clean, and absolutely everything you would need was provided.
The view from the balcony was marvellous.

We stayed here as part of our Silver Wedding Tour. We were initially booked for 3 nights but, because of the terrible events in Christchurch, needed an extra night. This was no problem for Liz who does not seem to have problems .. only solutions! This was despite her having to travel to Christchurch on the night of 22nd to collect her children who had been caught up in it all. When we first arrived we were shown to apartment #1, the Honeymoon Suite! There were balloons on the door and an anniversary message for us. Inside were flowers and a gift. We were amazed. The apartment was clean, spacious and very well equipped. The views were stunning. It was such a quiet location that you could sleep with the balcony doors open to catch the sound of the surf. Liz has plenty of great suggestions for eating out or where to buy food to eat in. Wonderful seafood from the ladies in the van on the esplanade. We will return to NZ to visit Christchurch in the future and would certainly stay here again.

The hosts of the Waves Liz and Damer were so kind and helpful and went out of their way to make our stay more enjoyable. We were treated more like friends than clients.
The apartments were immaculate with great views. Great location with only a short walk to shops restaurants and attractions etc.
Would love to stay there again.
