              Great host, lovely place, wonderful views, cute animals. Cannot expect more for a perfect vacation!”

              This is definitely the best place we stayed at during our 2 weeks trip in New Zealand!! The host is incredibly friendly, and he has a good sense of humor. He let my fiancee and me feed his cute animals. Knowing that we were going on a fishing tour on the following day, he even gave us an insulated fish bag!! The room is clean and view is gorgeous. Lovely breakfast. It was an extraordinary experience and way beyond our expectations. Thank you so much for your great hospitality. This is THE place to go in Kaikoura

              Wonderful B&B off the beaten path”

              Delightful owner. Secluded location. Fun farm animals.

              Would definitely recommend to friends and family. Beautiful location nestled between the sea and the mountains. Land to wander and a functioning farm are great for little kids. So refreshing to be away from the tourist-centric downtown of kaikoura but close enough to access by car within five minutes.

              Fantastic”

              Alison's friendliness, helpfulness and hospitality were outstanding.

              As our score indicates, our stay with Alison was fantastic - exceeded expectations and was a superb base to explore the delights of Kaikoura. The breakfasts were delicious and generous although there was some confusion initially about the status of the cooked breakfast in terms of expense! We much appreciated her help with booking restaurants, dolphin encounter, bush walks etc as well as her rapid laundry service. Loved being surrounded and entertained by her menagerie as well as the relaxed atmosphere but with all mod-cons Ie wifi & mobile phone network. We would liked to have stayed longer!

              Clean, beautiful spot, quiet.

              Nice place. Owner very busy, not like other B&B hosts who take a lot of time with guests. Good breakfast.

              B&B with nice host, comfortable and quiet

              The Awatea Country B&B is located 5-10 minutes drive from Kiakoura, it is not walking distance, so you have to drive. It is very quiet and the beds are comfortable, so you get a good night's sleep. The accommodations are pleasant, but not fancy, and a good breakfast is included. the host is a lovely person who is very helpful and informative.

              很不錯”

              主人是個蠻有個性的先生,這次住剛好只有我們夫妻,因此沒有受到干擾,房間乾淨而且整潔,另外沐浴用品是提供當地薰衣草農場的,很香很有質感,早餐也是有提供紐式早餐,也是能讓你吃飽的,還會煎蛋給你。鴨子會在門外晃來晃去,在外面悠哉走的時候要小心踩到地雷,就是一個很優閒放鬆的地方。
