Every kid dreams of hiding away in a tree house; Hapuku Lodge and Tree Houses allows you to bring out your inner child with grown-up sensibilities and luxuries in one of the world's most beautiful landscapes.

Property Details

Hapuku Lodge and Tree Houses sits snugly at the base of the Kaikoura Seaward Mountain Range. Five Tree Houses are nested high above the ground within a canopy of native kanukas. Large windows frame views of the leafy canopies, dramatic mountains, and the Pacific Ocean.

If you prefer to be on land, the lodge rooms feature soaking tubs, king beds, and balconies with something very special to see. Hapuku Lodge and Tree Houses is located on a deer breeding farm so these docile creatures are a constant presence. Watch deer grazing with fluffy clouds floating across the deep green mountains behind; it is like being in your own storybook.

Larger groups will find plenty of space in the Olive House, the former olive press building that has been converted into a three-bedroom abode.

Get warm and toasty within the Hapuku Room’s charcoal-and-wood themed interior, outfitted with a fireplace. Alternatively, get your blood pumping and head out to the renowned eco-marine town of Kaikoura. Hapuku Lodge and Tree Houses is ideal for travelers wanting to be outdoors near a rugged coastline.

Grapes grown on the property transform into delectable glasses of wine. The dining room is the heart of Hapuku Lodge and Tree Houses where chefs whip up lobster dishes right in front of your eyes. A great deal of the vegetables and herbs come from the organic gardens. This will quite likely be the best meal you will have in New Zealand.

This eco-conscious property ensures a minimal carbon footprint. Hapuku Lodge and Tree Houses recycle and compost for zero waste, which is essential in preserving this pristine destination.

Grab a picnic basket and go hiking along the beach. Depending on the time of year, you will see baby seals frolicking in a waterfall.

The splash of a sperm whale is a superb sight; there’s a permanent population here, found just a short boat ride offshore. Dolphins leap out of the surf and albatrosses soar above. New Zealand’s Kaikoura region has been referred to as “a Sea World without walls” and the Hapuku Lodge and Tree Houses is just the place to explore the sea.
