This place is extraordinary! The unit has 2 bedrooms, two baths, Laundry in the unit, kitchen, lounge and eating area inside and on the balcony. So well furnished with taste and charm. The manager could not do enough for us. His info was tops and we were so excited to be in a secure, safe, beautiful place. I wanted to stay for a week+. Alas we were only here for one night. I wouild consider coming here for a long holiday!!!!

Room Tip: Ocean view!!!!

We stayed three nights at Waves on the Esplanade, Kaikoura at the start of our four week holiday in the South Island of New Zealand. It was a great start to the holiday and we enjoyed everything about this two bedroom two bathroom apartment which was on the top floor overlooking both ocean and (snow capped) mountains. The managers were very helpful and friendly. It was a short walk to a few restaurants or a 20 minute walk to the "centre" of town. There were a few nice homely touches in the apartment which made it feel like home and it was very modern and well equpped. We really enjoyed the peninsular loop walk through a seal colony and over the headland.

Room Tip: Ask for the top floor towards th front of the building. There is parking on the ground floor, then two floors of units.

we stayed for three nights in their two-bedroom apartments. They were spacious, very clean and had a great range of appliances and amenities. We stay in many apartment complexes and these were up with the best of them. Liz and Damar were very helpful & nothing was too much trouble. Their recommendations for restaurants were spot on. The oceanfront location was great with restaurants in easy walking distance and only a matter of a few minutes drive to the heart of Kaikoura town shopping. Would certainly stay here again

Room Tip: any of the rooms seemed to have a great view

My apartment was spacious, clean, very nicely decorated and had a GREAT view from the balcony. Damer and Liz are great hosts. Damer was kind enough to pick me up from the train station when I became stranded. Not only did he pick me up, he then took me on a quick tour of some of the more scenic areas. The customer service at Waves is simply above and beyond. This will be my "home" whenever I return to Kaikoura.

We stayed for two nights in Sep 2011 and had a great stay. The apartments are very spacious and could easily have held two couples rather than just one as there was two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Everything was spotless and the views were great. We would highly reccommend Waves.
