Special Amenities

Situated on our own private little hill we are surrounded by farmlands, Mountains, fantastic views and friendly animals. The Cubby House Stay is on the main highway only 6km North (just a short scenic 8 minutes drive) from Kaikoura and all its activities on offer plus we are easily accessible as our entrance is off the main road - State Highway 1 which is called Kincaid Road. There is a small Q.E 11 native bush reserve to stroll around. The stunning views you will never tire of enjoying over farm lands from the mountains (which are snow capped in winter) onto the sea & the Kaikoura peninsula. It is literally a forever changing scenery and each scene is different each day or minute. We also have some cheeky farm animals and pets that you can hand feed and photograph.

Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

Kaikoura has great coastal and bush walks as well as many outdoor activities: whale watching, swim/kayak with dolphins, ski field 90 minutes away, fishing charters, scenic helicopter and plane flights, 18 and 9 hole golf courses, surfing, bike hire just to name a few. There are a number of shops in town, art and craft galleries in and around Kaikoura. We do suggest that you book any tours and restaurants you would like prior to your arrival to avoid disappointment as they do fill quickly in peak seasons. We are a quick 8 minute scenic drive from town. If you want a town stay please book in town or if you want a new house stay with stark features book elsewhere, but if you want a quiet, unique place with town and mountain views as your backdrop in a qwerty house with some great animals that will be memorable - book to stay here! You won't forget your time here with us in Kaikoura!

Rustic, spacious house full of character. Wood burning stove provided warmth on the chilly days and Bob made sure we had plenty of wood. Everything you could possibly need for a long stay. Fantastic views from all windows and the deck. If you love nature, animals, art and vintage cars then this is the place for you! It has individuality by the bucket load and we would definitely recommend a visit. Kaikoura is up and running and needs your support.
Response from Owner
We are very happy that your trip to Kaikoura was what you had hoped for. With every day that goes by things get better here & we appreciated your support. As guests you were perfect and we would welcome you back.
Stunning views, beautiful spot and lovely character house. My partner and I enjoyed everything about our stay, the location, the welcoming hosts and let's no forget all the different farm animals! Highly recommended.
Response from Owner
Just the guests to have.We enjoyed their company. The Artists Retreat was left spotless & our farm animals enjoyed the patting & feeding. Thank you Isabelle, you are both most welcome to stay again. Cheers Bob & Karen.
Just a wonderful place to stay (we 4 days, 6 of us). Great if you have a variety of people with a variety of ages - you are not crammed in - plenty of space for everyone. Bob was very helpful and really good for kids. Will recommend.
