The Hamptons B&B

A Boutique B&B set right on the waterfront in Kaikoura, The Hamptons has just two guest rooms, and you’re guaranteed a warm, friendly welcome and a wealth of local knowledge from hosts Patrick and Mary-Clare who have worked in the hospitality industry for 45 years.

Each guest room opens out onto its own private deck and garden, with stunning views out across the bay to Kaikoura mountain ranges and beyond. If you wish to stay in for an evening to soak up the scenery, you can make the most of the small kitchenette and cook at home – though its only a short five minute walk into Kaikoura town where you’ll find several good restaurants to choose from.

Close by you’ll also find opportunities for a dolphin encounter or to enjoy a whalewatching trip.

What our travellers love about staying here…

  • Falling asleep to the sound of the waves lapping at the shore on the beach, right outside your window
  • Following Patricks advice to take the walk to Ohau Waterfall to see the seal pups playing in the water
  • Chatting to Patrick and Mary-Clare about their ‘must see’ places to visit locally
