Carmel has been the most hospitable host, and really made us feel at home. The rooms are very clean and tidy, and had a great view of the mountains. The house is about ten minutes drive to every resort or place of interest, and reasonably close to the supermarket if you want to pick up some groceries. You will have your own private space. Highly recommended if you ever corn to Kaikoura - which, by the way, is among the most beautiful cities we have visited in NZ.
Carmel was a fabulous hostess. She made the arrival seamless, the bedroom/bath were meticulous/breakfast delightful; can't say enough good things about my stay!
Carmen was the perfect hostess. She helped us book our reservations and without her our time in Kaikura wouldn't have been nearly as nice. The accommodations were lovely as well
Much enjoyed staying with Carmel in Kaikoura. She was a lovely host, and the room was great and very well located close to the center activity (short drive). Room has a beautiful view of the mountains, comfortable bed, and en suite bathroom. We much enjoyed talking with Carmel and another guest at breakfast in the morning about New Zealand and their life experiences. Highly recommend!
Ms. Tindall was waiting for us when we arrived at this bright, cheery, large room with ensuite bath. She gave us a map of the area and recommended a wonderful walking path that we enjoyed as well as an excellent restaurant for dinner. We had a pleasant chat the next morning over a breakfast of fruit, toast and cereal. Her yard has beautiful flowers to admire. The large windows in the guest room look out on tall mountains.
Carmel was a wonderful hostess and provided a delicious breakfast as well as supplies for tea in my room. She was very welcoming and we shared several conversations. The room was fantastic with a magnificent view of the mountains. Her home is located close to town yet far enough away for peace and quiet.
Carmel's nice house has great view and easy to find. indipendent room for guest and clean, comfortable bed. thanks Carmel for helping us to book restraunt. and also the small gift for my 5 year daughter.
It's a wonderful day with Carmel.The bed is very comfortable.
Carmel has been a great and very vibrant host. She shows great interest in her guests and is always there for a chat. The room is spacious and spotless clean. Would definitely go back!
Carmel's home in Kaikoura was a wonderful, peaceful place to stay. The room was spacious, with a large and comfortable bed, an ensuite bathroom, and a sitting area with a nice view of the surrounding mountains. The town centre was a short walk away, and it was easy to get to all of the interesting sights around Kaikoura. Carmel's spirit was warm and infectious, and we really enjoyed chatting with her over the delicious breakfast she prepared. It was too short a stay! I definitely recommend her B&B room, "A Rest N Kai," to anyone!
I have stayed at Carmel's lovely home a number of times over the past few years. The room could not be more comfortable, with great mountain views. Breakfasts are great, and she could not be more helpful and friendly, whilst offering a private, peaceful place to stay. I highly recommend this B&B in a lovely town with many attractions.
