Spent three nights in a Family Treehouse. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. While the lodge offers minimal services, meals (dinner and breakfast) are included and were outstanding. A quiet accommodation that is best suited to couples and to families with well behaved, older children. Pool is small but adequate for relaxing after a day of activities in Kaikoura. Beautiful setting. Note...

We stayed in one of the tree houses and it must rank as one of the most outstanding experiences on all our travels. These are rooms that have been created with love and attention to detail. Standing in the shower with the floor to ceiling windows and looking at the Pacific Ocean one way and the mountains the other (...

My wife and I had a very nice stay at the Hapuku Lodge. Our room/suite was very large and comfortable and we enjoyed all that this very fine lodge had to offer. Our towels and linens were very good and our large king bed was super-comfortable. We ate our meals at the lodge restaurant and enjoyed both the dinners and...

We were reluctant to stay here on our tour because of the earthquake disruption but our travel agent said it was not to be missed. She was absolutely right. We had a fabulous stay. The room was out of this world. The evening meals and the breakfasts were superb. The staff were attentive and helpful nothing being too much trouble....

We stayed in a Treehouse on our Anniversary trip and could not have been happier. The views were amazing to the point I asked my husband if we could move here. The chef is amazing and there is quite an amount of farm to table going on, pay attention to the deer farm on site as well. Visit the Ohau...

The most amazing tree houses, great access to the beach and close to town as well, the property is surrounded by beauty: olive trees on one side, a deer farm on the other and the sea. The food was absolutely delicious both breakfast and dinner, the staff was very friendly and helpful. We hope to come back!

We had the most incredible stay at Hapuku Lodge. I could not fault any aspect. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome and wanted, and the attention to detail is second to none. The treehouse accommodation is an absolute treat, but the entire setting is a photographer's dream with stunning architecture, beautiful art and furniture and...

I am so pleased we didn't consider cancelling our stay in Kaikoura following the earthquake. We had a 6 hour detour drive down from Blenheim, but it was so worth it! The Treehouses at Hapuku are simply stunning - the decor, the view, almost like being on safari. Food was amazing - my husband said his crayfish was the best...
