I arrived to a nice large lodge...More
The tree houses here are amazing, with great views of the mountains on one side, and the sea on the other. We were at the Hapuku lodge on my birthday, and they provided a lovely cake and made my day really special. It is in...More
Fantastic staff, food and accommodation. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and were well looked after by the staff that made us completely at home. The evening dinner was divine and we were offered complimentary glasses if port. The Tree Houses are absolutely magic...More

There is also very positive news that the main state highway south of Kaikoura (SH1) is likely to be opened before the 20th December.
You could also look at taking a helicopter or fixed wing flight in and out. I can highly recommend this as a way to see the coastline, and is a wonderful experience. Hapuku are offering a significant subsidies for this as I am aware it can be expensive. Trailfinders should be able to give you the full information on this, let me know if they cannot. If you have car hire I am sure they can look at changing it around. It is not like you need it at Bay of Many Coves anyway, and they have a helipad.
