Kincaid Cottage

Kincaid Cottage - Self-contained Accommodation

Kincaid Cottage is situated in open green countryside with breath-taking views of the adjacent mountains and down to the Pacific Ocean. This self-contained cottage has it all! The rooms are spacious and luxuriously furnished, both having their own well- appointed bathrooms. The lounge and dining area has a TV, DVD player and free-view digital box, a library, DVD’s, guitar, plus games cabinet.

There is of course a fully equipped kitchen. Local hosts Jessica and Greg are happy to help with recommendations for some of the many activities available in the area, the most famous being whale watching and swimming with dolphins. There is also a large selection of excellent cafes and restaurants in the township. Kaikoura is a unique town where the mountains meet the sea. Here you will find a vast array of wildlife. There is much to see and do; well worth at least a few days stay. The cottage is situated in the grounds of the historic Kincaid lodge which can trace its European history back to 1856.

This may seem young for our international visitors but is old for New Zealand. The Kincaid “run” was named after Kincaid in Stirling, Scotland where the second owners lived. The existing homestead was completed in 1903. Kincaid Cottage was completed in 2008. Jessica & Greg look forward to sharing their piece of country paradise with you.
