Cooking is via a modern gas hob, and a Ziggler and Brown hooded barbeque takes care of roasting, baking, even bread and muffins come out well! BBQ cookbook provided. There is plenty of level onsite parking for cars, boats and trailers. The owners' interest in re-using and upcycling natural materials has created a stylish and unique property.

Master bedroom has a queen bed and ensuite. The 'tree room' has a double bed, the third bedroom a single bed. The loft room has a single mattress on the floor, a favourite for kids and those who snore! There is a foldout double sofabed in the lounge for the overflow or alternatively a double bed in our caravan can be used by arrangement. Bathrooms are clean, new and modern.

Great native birdlife in the regenerating native bush beside the road. Just under a 4km round trip. Joggers can extend and go out to SH70 and back. A walk up the hill behind gives panoramic views up the coast and over the Kaikoura Peninsula.
