Check in and check out is midday

Paddy's Pad is a a simple family bach located at the end of Manuka Bay Road with fantastic sea views east and north to the seaward Kaikouras. Gore Bay is just 3 km away along a pretty coastal road. Nearer to home, Manuka Bay is a pleasant walk down the farm track. While Manuka Bay's not a swimming beach, it's a great place for rambling and beach-combing, and has a lovely view south to Banks Peninsula. The Hurunui River Mouth is in the next bay past the southern promontory, and is accessible at low tide. Take the kids rock-hopping in any direction along the shoreline and see seals, penguins, and other wildlife.

Activities in and around Paddy's Pad include swimming, surfing, fishing, walks, tennis, and golf. Cheviot is just 11 km away and has a supermarket, pub, several cafes, and plenty of ice creams for all.

Hard case Kiwi batch. Great views and a good spot to relax. Has potential but thought it could do with alot more TLC. You get what you pay for.

We stayed 5 nights leaving on Friday, 27th April. We found the house in a clean tidy condition with a new dishwasher, fridge, a clean stove and many saucepans. Also plenty of firewood for the cooler evenings. It's the 4th time we've stayed over the last two years and would be happy to return. The property has absolutely unique sea views and offers peace and tranquility. Also access to good walking tracks at Manuka Bay & Gore Bay It's imperative to treat a property such as this as you would your own, Please consider the next Occupiers and leave it clean and tidy.

Thankyou so much. I was up there on Saturday with supplies and everything was left immaculate by you. New fridge now and oven clean so all go. Thankyou so much for your comments.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Paddy’s Pad. Such a lovely peacefully spot, amazing views out to sea and a breathtaking sunrise fur those that are up early enough. The kids enjoyed seeing the seals surfing the waves at Manuka Bay and enjoyed exploring the beaches of both Gore Bay and Manuka Bay. The house suited our needs with a modern clean kitchen, and the dishwasher was a bonus. A log burner with wetback was also a plus. Given the fact the place is in a slightly remote area, the house was clean and tidy when we got there and presented as a typical bach style holiday home. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to spending some more time there in the future.

I am very sorry you found the batch unclean. The very reasonable rent is kept at this rate by our guests cleaning up before they leave. It is a matter of trust. Usually any of our very regulaf clients would take it on the chin and let me know personally. Anyway anyone reading these comments can be assured as of 21 April 2018 the house was clean and tidy.
Kind regards Robyn Georgieff

Where do I start huh? That place was very filthy for us. I work at a motel back home. I can understand it's a holiday home but that place is definitely not what it was advertised. Very disappointing. The queen bed had a different headboard not even fitted to the bed. We dragged the mattress into the lounge and slept there. The house was very dusty and smelt very musty. It wasn't been before we were given the accommodation. I was lost for words when I walked in.
The bottom line.....it needs alot of cleaning up to do before renting it out to the guests. I wish I had taken some photos of the place.......
We enjoyed our walks along the beach and up the mountain.
Please do look into this and hope the next time we come around, that place will be liveable.
Thank you very much.

Hi Irene

I've just caught up with the comment from November. I'm so sorry you were disappointed with the state of the house! We are very reliant on people cleaning up after themselves. I will check to see who was in before you.

I do hope next time you communicate directly with us if there are problems of this sort so that we can react quickly.

Best wishes, Robyn

We have stayed here twice and look forward to going back again. It's your typical batch, which we love the views are amazing. Such good value for money.

Typical older NZ bach, but modern conveniences, big windows and great views over the sea. Did a number of walks, including the Manuka Bay walkway (was Port Robinson walkway) through lush coastal bush. Pleasant walk from the Hurunni end but the steep Manuka Bay ascent, going the other way, was rather daunting for a retiree. Great place for a relaxing, good value holiday.

Beautiful and peaceful spot. We were lucky with the weather and made use of the BBQ. The bach would also be ideal for a rainy getaway as it has a roomy lounge for games/dvd's/reading etc if you couldn't get outside. Best of all the wood burner if things got too cold. It's a good size bach, there were 6 in our group and we never felt cramped. Also enjoyed the walk along the roadside to Gore Bay. A bit over 6kms return and undulating. Everyone in our group loved the stay. Fantastic value for money. Would love to go back again.

What a wonderful bach in a great location. Penty of space around, and stunning views. We arrived after dark on the Friday night and so the first morning sun views on Saturday were awesome. Will definitely be back.

Walks down to Manuka Bay. Collecting surf clams at Gore Bay and cooking them for dinner. Log burner to keep us warm in the evenings. Dishwasher (hurrah!) and great kitchen.
Would definitely recommend.

Great kiwi style bach! Stayed for a weekend with a group of friends, pretty secluded which was great for our loud music! Lovely views with 3 decent sized bedrooms! Went swimming at Gore Bay which was a 2minute drive away and we also had a gorgeous swim at the Hurunui River which was a 5minute drive away. Quite cheap for what it was and had a lovely new kitchen. Would definitely stay again and highly reccommend!!
