Is Kaikoura calling? Look no further than the charming and modern, Simon's Place, for the ideal spot to check out this picturesque town and landscape but also, to enjoy a much-needed escape!

Show off your cooking prowess in the impressive and well-equipped kitchen with a big breakfast to fuel up your group or family ready for the day's adventures.

Lounge out in the open-plan living, dining and kitchen space that opens out onto two sundecks, to make the most of all-day sun during the warmer months. Pour a cold drink, grab a good book or one of the board games and get right into holiday mode.

If its a mid-winter getaway you have in mind, then Simon's Place has you covered with WiFi to stay connected and both a heat pump and wood-burning fireplace to keep you and your family toasty warm.

Take the short 300m walk to the swimming and snorkelling beach or even take down the kayaks for a scenic adventure. Whale Watch Kaikōura and the Kaikōura Peninsula Walkway are just a few minutes walk away. While there are no shops in South Bay, it's only a short 8-minute drive to the centre of Kaikoura with all it's cafe's, restaurants and shops. Be sure to get out onto 'Tom's Track' a great 20-minute walk over the hill into Kaikoura with spectacular views well worth viewing.

When you need to get away from it all - Simon's Place is ready to host your holiday.

The batch is really nice, as per photos. Good location, very sunny batch with double deck. Good living space. There is an additional living area upstears, with beautiful sea view, perfect for teenagers! We strongly recommand this place.

Beautiful spot, so quiet and close to the beach! House needed a very good clean, but other than that was a great spot!

We really enjoyed our stay at Simon's Place - it was warm and airy and clean and the beds were super comfortable. There was plenty of room to stretch out and really nicely renovated inside. Would be happy to stay again :)

Simon's Place was a wonderful holiday retreat for our 7 person family. Ver well set up, spacious and clean. The two living spaces worked brilliantly for our busy crew. Some of us even got to walk home along the parade after our whale watching trip. We kept very warm with the log burner. Highly recommend. A++
