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!
Thank-you Steffi. Sorry your stay was so short. I hope the rest of the trip was a great success for you both. My best wishes for the future.
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!
Thank you Mark. It was nice to meet you & Lauren. I have been away, hence the long time to reply to your comment. Hope you make it back to NZ sometime. All the best.
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 is very nice. she makes our trip more lovely. the room provied for us has its own door, and the bed feels comfortable. we love it very much. and thanks for your lovely gift for my wife.
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.
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!
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.
