Waterfront Cabin - Kakanui

Waterfront Cabin - Kakanui

Our eco-friendly cedar cabin is the perfect place to get away from it all. Watch the sun rise over the ocean and set over the mountains. Enjoy a coffee while watching the sea birds soaring below and keep an eye out for dolphins (or, if you're very lucky, a whale!). Only 10 minutes' drive from Oamaru with its Historic Precinct and the end of the Alps to Ocean Cycle Trail, and with the beautiful Kakanui beaches just down the road.

What guests are saying:

“Fabulous location (10 mins from Oamaru) warm and very comfortable. Loved lying in bed watching the sun come up. Kitchen has everything you need, kettle, toaster, oven and fridge. Very well equipped. Bed extremely comfortable and linen is lovely. Shower has great pressure. Loved there was information about the area and places to see and eat at. Would return in a heartbeat.”

What guests are saying:

“The most amazing airbnb ive ever stayed in - its perfect for 1-2 people. Quirky unique design which goes well with the steampunk theme of the town. Its clean, warm, hot shower with great water pressure, carpet in the bedroom is so soft, awesome views of the township and harbour from the lounge/kitchen. Easy to get to from city centre & intercity bus stop. Whitestone cheese co which does cheese factory tours is just a short walk away. Would definitly stay again. If you are after a unique airbnb this is the one. Has nespresso pod machine for coffee too.”

What guests are saying:

“This is a wonderful place to stay. I echo all of the other positive reviews. Kathrin and her husband are amazing, supportive, caring hosts. The private space has a great feel to it and has been perfectly designed. I especially love the walkable beach just moments from the front door. The whole effect feels like stepping briefly into a different, better world.”
