We had planned and booked a Whale Watch trip in Kaikoura during our trip round the South Island and was looking for somewhere to stay just for a couple of nights. After reading several TA reviews for this Homestay decided to give it a go and was so glad we did.
On our arrival Margaret and Nicky made us so welcome and was just like being back home.
The rooms are clean, tidy and comfortable. They have a nice view from their drive and their garden is a must see providing them with a lot of their own food for themselves and a home grown breakfast for their guests which I must add was delicious.
I would certainly recommend this Homestay for anyone looking for a home from home homestay and should we return sometime in the future to visit Kaikoura we will certainly be stopping here again.

The view from this home is breathtakingly beautiful. The attention to detail by N!ikki and Margaret was delightful. Breakfast included homemade bread, fresh laid eggs and home-grown tomatoes and homemade jams. How can you go wrong with such wonderful hosts in such an inviting atmosphere? Don't miss seeing the gardens.

On our travels in New Zealand we have been unsure of the definition of a home stay. This is no boutique B&B but nonetheless a joy. Margaret and Nicky welcome you into their home and provide comfortable accommodation and amazing home produced breakfast with no pretension. You are provided with your own lounge, kitchen and laundry facilities whilst always feeling that you are a welcome guest in their home. Thanks for a great (home) stay.

The host was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was excellent, just like staying at Grandmas. Homemade jam, eggs from their own chickens, and good ol home style food. Beautiful garden, and very comfortable lodgings. Wonderful people, and over the top service.

This is a really charming house with a a nice view over the bay. The home-made breakfast is wonderful. The room are clean and confortable. You couldn't except better (or even equal) price value in any hotels and you would miss the incredible hospitality of Margaret and Nicky. Thanks a lot for your warm and friendly welcome as well as your help during our whole stay to plan our meals and activities. A perfect homestay for a still affordable budget.
