About the neighborhood
Hapuku is just a 10 minute drive from Kaikoura where the ocean meets the sea. Kaikoura has a deep underwater trench that is home to sperm whales, dolphins and seals all year round. Many times throughout the year there are also Humpback Whales, Orca, Blue Whales, Pilot Whales, Southern Right Whales as well as Dusky Dolphins, Hector's Dolphins and Bottle-nose Dolphins. Just north of Hapuku is the famous Ohau Seal Pool where, in winter, hundreds of baby New Zealand fur seals gather to play under a beautiful freshwater waterfall. Hapuku Beach is a wild secluded beach, perfect for long walks and for finding interesting rocks and driftwood.

Turn right onto Hapuku Road – keep going and you will see us on the right. If you miss the turn-off to Lover's Lane – take the 3rd left onto Factory Road, over the railway line, then righ...
