Great view, great owner, sheep, cow, deer, horse, nice dogs, cats, great room and great kitchen

I am Linh from Viet Nam, my husband and I make a tour South Island Nz. We found Waikene Lodge for a night then it is a great place so we make another night here then we make 2 more nights here. Great owner, great neighbour so we will make another trip back here in winter time this year or next year.

Really lovely spot wish we could have stayed longer

We found this place by accident and what a happy accident. We camped in our caravan and enjoyed using the kitchen and bbq for our dinner. Nice view of the hills and the deer on the hillside behind us. The following morning one sheep strolled through the campsite. Lots of hot water for showers in a sparkling facility. Would highly recommend this spot for camping.

Hidden Paradise near Kaikoura

Looking for a quiet place in a lovely countryside near Kaikoura, we've found this wonderful lodge and spontaneously decided to stay longer than planned. Joyce and Ross are very friendly and helpful hosts, they make it really easy to feel like home. The room was comfortable and spacious and the lounge is really cosy like a living room at home. In addition with the great view, the nice countryside and the quiet area, it's a perfect place to relax, about 20km from Kaikoura. Having an own car, it's definitely worth to stay here. Fridge in the private room and well equipped kitchen in the lounge as well as barbecue are available and offer all possibilities for self cooking. Free WiFi. Campsite also available.

To the rest of you, a must to doo, you will love it

Special Memories Linger on!

It's over a month since my husband and I had a night at Waikene Lodge and the memories are precious... wonderful hospitality from the moment we drove in, outstanding views, an evening relaxing in the Lodge in front of the fire listening to music ;returning to breakfast the following morning with more music playing, the fire lit and table set to see the picturesque view of the mountain range that can be seen from all over the property. There is everything you need here for a restful and soul nourishing break. It's got to be Kaikoura's best kept secret. Thanks Joy for making us feel so welcome. One night is just too short!
