Reviewed 19 January 2014 via mobile

Stayed here overnight to visit the Seal Colony...had a two bedroom apartment which was very comfortable..beds were good, kitchen was great even though we ate out at the Thai restaurant in town ( which was awesome). Beautiful and clean and the managers were lovely...especially loved the visit from their resident cat..x He must have know I was missing my cats so he let me give him a big cuddle...would Definately come back again.

Stayed January 2014, travelled with family

To be honest. This wasn't our first choice, but am I glad we stayed here !! The owners (Mandy.. forgive me if I don't have the name right) were absolutely wonderful. In fact helped us find great restaurants, must see places including a suggestion to have lavender honey ice-cream at the Lavender gardens and a Seaside barbecue serving grilled crayfish and prawns. we stayed here between January 1-3, 2014 (room 206).

The apartment itself was a beautiful 2 bedroom apartment, with large balcony where you could sip some wine while watching the sea and the mountains, functional kitchenette, cozy bedrooms and best of all lots of TV channels for the kids. I would recommend this place to any family with kids.

There is no swimming pool or fitness centre. But who needs one with an ocean in front and beautiful beach side running places :)

All the best to the owners and thanks for making our stay memorable.

Room Tip: You need to pre-order breakfast. So remember to do that the night before. Else there are some wonder...

this was a wonderful find. the owner was very helpful. the price was great for 3 people . the apartments are very well specked with lovely linen and furnishings. It has a lovely outdoor area and we could see the see. The kitchen was gorgeous and the whole place was spectacularly clean. $225 was well worth it for 3 adults. Everyone had a great sleep. Was also impressed with the mini bar prices. they seemed to be about the same a supermarket. would def stay again.

Room Tip: front and upstairs rooms have best views.

Excellent apartments with a full kitchen and washer/dryer. The host was very accommodating too. Do go for the premium Executive Apartment units facing the sea, it will be well worth it! The view was just amazing from the apartment compound itself and the beach is just across the street. If you plan to cook or eat in, please make sure you get all the supplies from Beach Road as the area where the apartment is doesn't have any grocery stores or restaurants within walking distance.

Came by this place by accident. What a pleasant find. Clean, decent beds, GREAT view of the sunrise, plenty of space, roomy tub. We were two couples. We had a great nights sleep, a nice place to stay makes all the difference. I highly recommend this place.

And then there was the hostess. What a gem. Helpful, friendly. One of those people you want to take home with you. All the best. We will definitely come back and stay again.

Room Tip: We had the front room. The sunrise was really nice!

We have been to the apartments before and were very pleased to see that high standards met last time had been maintained. We had more than enough room, the amenities were all clean and sleeping in wonderful beds was not a problem. There was no problem in getting out to find supplies as we were self catering, but there are plenty of restaurants nearby if you did not want to eat in. Everything worked, and our welcome was friendly and warm. We were certainly well rested for our excursions the next day and would recommend the venue to all.

We stayed at Kaikoura Waterfront Apartments back in February. The apartments are in a great location, across the quiet road from the waters edge & beautiful views of the mountains in the background. Only a 5 minute walk into the town where there are plenty of restaurants, cafes & bars to chose from. The apartments are clean & comfortable & the owner was very friendly & helpful. We would definately stay there again on our next visit

Room Tip: An apartment closer to the road will have better views
