Another nice stay here, first time since before COVID. Wonderful to be back again. This bach is well set up for relaxing and fishing and being able to explore on foot the tracks and hills nearby is a bonus. Looking forward to next time, thanks Carol.

Beautiful location on the Coast. Palliser Bay lighthouse to the left, Kaikōura mountains to the right. A lively seal colony below. Stunning sun sets too. Nice batch with hot showers, full kitchen and views. Highly recommended
