Hapuka Lodge & Treehouses
The Lodge’s five Tree Houses are unique, nested 10 meters or more above the ground in the canopy of a native Kanuka grove. There are three 1-bedroom Tree Houses, and two “Family" Tree Houses which both have a master bedroom in the upper branches and a somewhat smaller bedroom in the lower branches. The Tree Houses are designed to complement the natural environment, as your bedroom in the sky. Their large windows bring the tree canopies into the bedroom and provide impressive views of Kaikoura’s dramatic mountains and the Pacific Ocean.
The one-bedroom Tree Houses are perfect for couples, they are warm & inviting with deep soaking tubs, fireplaces and our custom made furniture. The “Family" Tree House has the same upstairs design along with the downstairs room, designed perfectly with children in mind including a separate bathroom & twin beds.

Hapuku Lodge + Tree Houses is delighted to now have available our new Olive House. The Olive House is a free standing building that used to house our farm’s olive press. We relocated our press and have turned the building into a beautifully realized three-bedroom suite of rooms. It can comfortably accommodate 3 couples or large families. The upper floor can be separately occupied as a two-bedroom suite including the lounge, while the ground floor room can be occupied as a stand alone guest room. The ground floor room is wheelchair accessible. Our new digs are the perfect place to unpack your bags and settle in to enjoy the Lodge’s unique environment.
About Hapuku Lodge + Treehouses
While there are many things to do in the wider Kaikoura district, at the Lodge and within its environs there is plenty to do if a guest is so inclined.
One can try one’s skill at country and mountain biking with the Lodge’s mountain bikes (and helmets). A variety of walks can be taken from the Lodge, from short to long, beach to bush, with a picnic basket if desired, including a botanical tour of the local native bush. An ocean fishing trip can be arranged, which can include the opportunity to catch a crayfish.
Alternatively, you can swim in the ocean or sit by the pool or sauna and enjoy a relaxing retreat through a massage. Unless you are feeling a bit more adventurous a picnic excursion around the area or helping to pick olives (May-June) could just be the perfect excuse to immerse in the picturesque surroundings.
