Dylans Country Cottages
For a rural retreat in Kaikoura NZ, try Dylans rustic cottage B&B. Dylans Country Cottages is two unique rustic b&b cottages, Mahoe and Kowhai. They are in a rural setting beneath the spectacular Seaward Kaikoura mountain range. Dylans is only five minutes from central Kaikoura, 2.5 hours drive from Christchurch, and 2 hours drive from the Picton ferries.
Each cottage has an upstairs mezzanine bedroom with beds made from Macrocarpa grown on the property. The French doors in the lounge open onto the garden, which gives New Zealand’s famed indoor-outdoor flow. The kitchenette area is small and basic but more than adequate to make breakfast and simple meals.
You can order a packed lunch or evening meal. These need to be ordered 24 hours in advance, however.
The lavender and flower gardens of Lavendyl surround the cottages. These are separate from Dylans; guests are free to wander in them at their leisure. The gardens are open to the public during the day. There is an on-site gift shop that stocks quality lavender products and other gift items. You can also order these online.
