Discovering Your Stay
Having made the decision to join us here, choose from one of these many romantically perfect spots, laden with experiences that will stoke those freshly hot relationship-coals whilst also, rekindling old flames that life has dampened with its necessity.
For that authentic, and completely “Bush” romanticism, nothing has relaxation and decadence written all over it than remoteness of these pods in the hills.
The privacy and isolation of these luxurious glass cabins, completely surrounded by nature, takes you to another world. From the sky to the hills, the sea, the birds, the bush, view the landscape from the comfort of the plush beds or relax in the hot-tub and soak in the canvas of star above.
There are two PurePod’s in Kaikōura, both offering the peace and tranquillity of a relaxed evening and a star-filled night. You can order your breakfast and dinner from PurePod so it’s there, ready-to-go, on arrival. Although you can self-cater and take your own food if you prefer. Just make sure you pack in a bottle of North Canterbury’s pinot gris to enjoy.
Te Mahuru Retreat
Nestled in the Kaikōura flats, this is a B&B to satisfy all your romantic needs. Private hot – tubs with views of the Seaward Ranges and private cottages & serene gardens will offer the peace and tranquillity you need. Located a short drive from the Kaikōura township but feels a million miles away.
This property also doubles up as a wedding venue should your trip go well!
Sky Harbour Cottage
Unique to Kaikōura, this little treasure is cosily situated at the foot of Mt. Fyffe and the Kaikōura Seaward Ranges. Beautifully built to modern tastes but with that old-time feel, leave the comfort of your king-sized bed and have your breakfast on the balcony overlooking the unobstructed views of the Peninsula, with the township providing the foreground for your romantic weekend away.
In the evening, cosy up to the large gas fire in the open plan kitchen/dining/living area and take in the surroundings or take a romantic hike up into the hills and enjoy the Fyffe-Palmer bush walk alongside the property.
Once you have settled and discovered your surroundings, treat yourself to a romantic evening meal overlooking the Pacific Ocean from the hilltops south of Kaikōura at the Old Kaikōura Winery, with a 7 – course degustation menu, delight in the delicate tastes that the locality has to offer. Paired beautifully with wines from the local region, each plate will create a lasting memory of your special time in Kaikōura.
