The Point - Kaikoura Bed & Breakfast and The Point Sheep Shearing Show
The Point Bed & Breakfast
The Point Bed & Breakfast is uniquely situated in Kaikoura, nestled in a bay overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the Seaward Kaikoura Mountain Range.
Breathtaking views of the coast and mountains await our guests after a busy day on the road or enjoying yourself at one of Kaikoura's many award winning activities & attractions.
Relax in the peace and quiet of our rural setting, yet be only a short walk away from two top rated Kaikoura restaurants. Alternatively, take a short drive to the town centre where you are spoilt for choice from our busy café and restaurant scene.
The Point farm originally covered 600 acres of farmland and ran 2000 sheep. Today we have 90 acres and run 300 Drysdale sheep on the farm which forms part of the Kaikoura Peninsula. While staying at The Point come and see the sheep shearing show and catch up with the famous "Ram Man"; he eats out of the palm of your hand. Our working farm dog Jed the family pet is a frequent visitor to our daily sheep shearing show while the cat Mot just sleeps in the sun.
Enjoy the beauty of the natural landscape of Kaikoura with a walk to the Seal Colony and around th Peninsula walkways.
Enjoy those cosy country nights at The Point and let us make your stay as restful and relaxing as you wish it to be.
Free wireless internet connection and guest lounge available.
At The Point we offer advise on local attractions, activities and resturants. As the summer season in Kaikoura is very busy, it is a good idea to make bookings in advance.

Both these Queen rooms have their own private ensuite bathrooms, television, an electric blanket, room heater, hair dryer, heated towel rail, extra blankets and complementary chocolates are all provided to make your stay with us even more enjoyable.
