Ha­puko Lodge Tree House, New Zealand

The Ideal Home and Garden - - Ideal Getaway -

The Lodge and Tree Houses, de­signed and built by the Wil­sons, of­fer a unique and invit­ing en­vi­ron­ment, even down to the fur­ni­ture, a good deal of which Peter and Tony de­signed and had crafted lo­cally, with the help of three skilled fur­ni­ture mak­ers. Par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion was paid to the beds, even down to the de­sign of the mat­tresses, with the re­sult that many guests said that their beds are “the most com­fort­able beds in the South Is­land.” 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 a 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.
