Our 100 year old villa has been undergoing years of restoration and renovation. We now can offer guests a separate section of the house with two queen bedrooms, each with ensuite (toilet, shower, basin) and garden view. The rooms have private entrances via French doors and ample outside space to hang out on the porch or in the yard. Guests can park outside their room. The two rooms share a lounge with seating for watching TV/DVD, relaxing or enjoying a cuppa. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the lounge and we provide milk and a baked item in the mornings so guests don't leave on an empty stomach. There are no cooking facilities but Kaikoura has numerous dining and takeaway options. If you absolutely need to cook, check out Blue Heron Bungalows which are self contained holiday homes right next door.
Our house is 80 m from the sea, a short walk to Dolphin Encounter and a 10-15 minute walk to town. The Kaikoura peninsular track can be reached by crossing the street.
Very quiet, comfortable and great value.
Adults only, please.
You are booking 1 room for maximum 2 people.
If you require both rooms please send me a message and I will respond with an offer that will allow you to book both rooms together.
If the calendar indicates unavailability on a date you wish to book, please make an inquiry as the system will block out the date after booking only one room. The second room could still be available!
P.S. There is a cat on the premises but she is the world's most timid cat, you'll probably never see her.
Blue Heron House is non-smoking.
Ich habe mich bei Susan sehr wohl gefühlt. Eine komfortable und sehr saubere Unterkunft, liebevoll eingerichtet. Kurze Wege zum Meer und in den kleinen Ort. Sehr ruhig zum entspannen oder auch gut als Ausgangspunkt für Touren. Ich hatte während meines Aufenthaltes einen Unfall, Susan hat mich in dieser Situation sehr gut unterstützt und mir weiter geholfen. Danke nochmal dafür. Ich kann diese Unterkunft sehr empfehlen. Ich werde wenn ich wieder in Kaikoura bin bei Susan buchen.
Susan showed us around the apartment when we arrived. It was a delightful place- it was beautiful, clean, tidy and spacious. We loved the breakfast prepared by Susan.
The Blue Heron House was very lovely! Everything was clean and we felt very welcome. Billy even picked us up from the train station so we didn't have to walk to their house with our heavy bags. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and everything was provided for us. We had a great experience with them!
Susan was very welcoming and helpful. The room is spotless and very well appointed as is the sitting room. A very pleasant experience albeit not long enough!
We loved staying at Susan's beautiful house. The room is very well decorated and super clean. We particularly enjoyed the breakfast Susan prepared for us with cake and fruit from their garden.
Susan was a wonderful host. She welcomed us upon arrival and showed us through our room and house. She provided useful tips on places to eat and things to do. The room itself is beautiful: spacious and warm, and lovingly decorated. The house has also been beautifully restored and features a gorgeous garden filled with a wide variety of edible plants. While we endured lots of rain, i can see this being a beautiful spot to sit back with a good book and a cup of tea after a few hours spent cuddling kaikouras seals and whales.
Blue Heron house is such a lovely home. Our room warm and cosy, and the sitting room a delight. The house was a short walk to the center of town and close to an entry point for the Kaikoura Peninsula Walkway. Susan and Billy were the perfect hosts, friendly, had excellent local knowledge and the breakfasts, especially the whole meal yoghurt pound cake and fruit fresh from their garden was wonderful. Peter and I highly recommend this accommodation. Thank you for such lovely memories.

Billy, my Kiwi husband, and I have lived in Kaikoura since 2001. Ten years earlier on a NZ cycling trip, we decided Kaikoura should eventually be our home. In the past 30 years we've lived in W. Africa, the U.S., the Middle East, Europe and S.E. Asia. We still enjoy traveling as much as possible, usually by bicycle. However, Kaikoura has indeed become our home and we'd love to help you enjoy it.
