White Morph is a basic but modern motel-style property a stones-throw from Kaikoura beach. The rooms are spacious with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony or patio, looking either over the garden or towards the ocean. They all have self-catering facilities – the studios have a stove top, microwave and fridge whilst the larger family apartments have a full kitchen – along with air conditioning, iPod dock, Sky TV, DVD player and free internet. There is a guest BBQ area and coin-operated laundry facilities. From here it’s a seven-minute walk along the esplanade to the Kaikoura information centre and town centre.
