It is a quiet area which is close to the township and has an attractive look
Only a local taxi, but I am always happy to help guests with accessing local attractions and transport etc.
No smoking in the house. No pets and no use of the kitchen for cooking. Enjoy Kaikoura!
Carmel was a fantastic host for us. The room was spacious and very clean. The food in the morning was delicious and the company was excellent. Carmel even volunteered to show us around town a bit when we found out that our whale watching trip was postponed.
Carmel is a really sweet and pleasant lady. She made me feel at home instantly. Her hobbies are gardening and that is why her house is so relaxing to live in. Room is really clean and breakfast is awesome. I would like to come back one day. Thanks for hosting!
We had a wonderful time in Kaikoura and Carmel was a fantastic host. She was there to greet us after a long day of driving and provided good tips on where to grab dinner for the evening. In the morning (after a visit to the seal pups!), a lovely continental breakfast was set out for us. The room was private and very comfortable. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer - thanks again Carmel!
Carmel is very nice. She is very warm-hearted but give us enough privacy. She gives us great suggestions on food and fishing which both are amazing.
Camel has a beautiful houses and a lovely gust room for us to stay. It's wonderful to be here. And the breakfast is very delicious.
Here's the Chinese version：
We were made very welcome by Carmel who looked after us very well. The room was really lovely and very clean with all the faciliteis we needed including two easy chairs. The bathroom was a little small but really no problem and the shower was great. The location was just rght and the view from the window when the clouds lifted was terrific. We did enjoy our leisurely breakfast (cereals, toast, lots of fresh fruit) provided by Carmel and a long chat with our host. Kaikoura was a very nice town and the walk around the headland to see the seals and the wonderful scenery was very enjoyable. One day was definitely not enough.

Carmel was a gracious and welcoming hostess. The room was spacious, immaculate and very comfortable and quiet. She is a Kaikoura native who loves the area and offered us excellent guidance in choosing restaurants.
