We spent a very pleasant weekend in Kaikoura overlooking the unique view of ocean and snow covered mountains and enjoying the great local food. A truly superb breakfast and great hosts make this a relaxing place to lay back for a day or two.

From the moment you arrive, the substantial, modern architecture is more than a little bit breath-taking. Very high-spec place with a lot of attention to detail clearly shown. We splashed out on a top-drawer place to enjoy Kaikoura from and couldn’t have been more pleased. The setting is obviously spectacular – the views, the surrounds, the mountains(!!!) and the fit-out...

From the moment we arrived Polly and Trevor made us feel very welcome and our room was spacious and lovely, with eveything we needed. Breakfast witnessed an in-depth talk on paua ( the amazingly blue/green shellfish that grows offshore here ) from Trevor - and a lovely meal to start the day.

I stayed for two nights with Polly and Trevor and could not have been made more welcome or more comfortable. The room had spectacular views over the bay which were a highlight of my trip.

Miharotia means 'to be admired' in Maouri and this is certainly true. Beautiful house in an exceptional location high on the peninsula overlooking Kaikoura. Luxurious accommodation, beautifully furnished, every little detail thought of, perfect for the traveller needing respite.
