Well set up studio style rooms with kitchenette, and lounge set back from the Esplanade among lush gardens. Very peaceful and private, but still a short walk into town. Hostess Deb was incredibly warm, welcoming and helpful; suggesting activities in Kaikoura, and for our drive when arriving and then continuing south. A real highlight on our trip. Would love to return and stay longer

Stayed one night before departing early for whale watching. The room was functional, clean and tidy and perfectly equipped for a short stay. Set back from the Esplanade, Sails is conveniently situated for the town and other amenities. The star of the stay though is Deb - a perfect host who went to the trouble of ordering fish and chips for us to collect. She knows all about the area and is a gem. Thank you for an excellent stay

Sails is quite small, in a good location, on the beach road but tucked away from any road noise. Deb went out of her way to be helpful and we were almost overloaded with information. It was a relatively short walk into town. Before we booked, Deb helped us with advise about whale watching and when to go. Good pace to stay in Kaikura

Spent one night here and Deb, the host, couldn't have been more helpful. She gave suggestions on what to do, where to eat, how to get places. Room was private and quiet and spotlessly clean. Wished we could have stayed longer.

A gem of a place, off the main road and very quiet. Debbie, our hostess, went the extra mile (kilometer) to ensure that our plans for the weekend were satisfied. Bed: very comfortable; sitting area with tv; small kitchenette with microwave, toaster and kettle providing a facility to prepare simple food if not wanting to eat out. Kaikoura has a number of restaurants, bars, cafes and takeaways (fish & chips, pizza and a seafood barbecue) so - spoilt for choice.The downside, most food places are about 1km away; longish walk or very short ride!

Room Tip: All rooms are sheltered and quiet
