Ocean View Home, Canterbury

This stunningly situated home has beautiful views of South Bay and the mountains beyond. There is a large deck for outdoor dining in the summer and even a hot spa for the winter months! Within walking distance of the township of Kaikura, make sure you pop into the Old Kaikura Winery for an elegant meal or their popular Sunday brunch. The home is also just steps away from the water where you can see seals and dolphins, so it’s no surprise that this was the top New Zealand swap in 2020.
