One with nature – Hapuku Lodge, New Zealand

Ever dreamed to live in a Tree house? If you’re a big fan of adventure, try a new concept for accommodation while exploring the beautiful landscape and enjoying the perfect holiday. With mountains to the West, ocean to the East and deer all around,  Hapuku Lodge was designed to be a special place for family and friends to visit. The architect Tony Wilson and his family decided to build a small guesthouse which was further extended to a spacious Lodge, five luxury Tree Houses and an Olive House.

Unique New Zealand accommodation, at about 10m above the ground, each Tree House offers spectacular views of Kaikoura‘s  mountains and surf-washed Pacific coastline. As with the Lodge, the Tree Houses are designed to be a contemporary complement to the natural environment. Their exteriors are from native woods and copper shingles. Large windows bring the tree canopy right into the bedroom.
