Lake Stella Mountain Huts

Mt Lyford

Set in Mt Lyford in the Canterbury region, Lake Stella Mountain Huts has a balcony and lake views. Situated 12 km from Mt. Lyford, the property features a garden and free private parking.

At the tented camp guests are welcome to take advantage of a hot tub. Lake Stella Mountain Huts offers a terrace. If you're after a weekend away staying somewhere a little out of the ordinary, then this is it. The Huts and the surroundings provided such a unique experience. The huts themselves are built to a high standard and the view and the hot tub really is the cherry on top. The communal kitchen makes for a chance to meet new people and there's a real community feel about this stay. Tim and Tess were lovely and Tim was very knowledgeable about the area and keen to share his advice. Bonus that it's dog friendly too, a lovely stay!

Takaka

Featuring free bikes, a shared lounge, and a garden, The Woolshed Caravans offers accommodation in Takaka with free WiFi and garden views. Boasting free private parking, the tented camp is in an area where guests can engage in activities such as cycling and fishing. These are the cutest little retro trailers! Bed was comfy, hosts were great, facilities were clean and well-maintained. Keep an eye out for the wild parrots, wekas and pukehos! This place would be great for a family between the two trailers. Location is also great, close to the beach. Hosts were generously flexible when our plans changed say the last minute too. All around great place and people.

This was such a wonderful experience. One of the most memorable stays - if not THE most memorable one - ever. We stayed in the dome and truly loved the beautiful surroundings, the luxurious and well kept dome, kitchen and bathroom. We felt very well taken care of from the staff who did everything for us to feel comfortable and safe in their communication and availability. I can only urge everyone to try this once in a life time experience if you want a unique encounter with some of the most amazing nature in the world.

Ngahere Hou Glamping

Kenepuru Head

Set in a 40 acre private bush reserve with views down the Kenepuru Sound, Ngahere Hou Glamping offers off-the-grid eco accommodation. Continental breakfast, a hot tub and a private beach are offered.

Picton Ferry Terminal is 61 km from Ngahere Hou Glamping. The nearest airport is Blenheim Airport, 91 km from the accommodation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ngahere Hou! The hike into the property is totally worth it - a little oasis! The little extra touches made our experience even more wonderful, the bottle of wine waiting, hot tub ready, a walk to see the glow worms at night, fresh bread and croissants for breakfast the next morning. Ian was so welcoming and accommodating to our every need. We really felt at home. Could not fault the room and amenities and it was the perfect place to recharge during the hike. We will certainly be recommending this spot to anyone who wants a complete getaway or place to stay while hiking the Queen Charlotte Track.
