Cottage 103 by Sudbury
103 Te Hapua Rd, Te Horo
Simple but elegant, with an open log fire and French doors, Cottage 103 is the ultimate private haven and offers sumptuous seclusion perfect for honeymooners, romantic weekends and that special time away with friends.
The whole cottage is stylish but cosy: deep leather sofas, with skins and rugs to snuggle into, an open fire, SKY TV with surround sound, fluffy bathrobes, French doors onto the expansive deck, two bathrooms, two bedrooms with the finest Egyptian cotton linens (one with a King bed and one with either twin beds or a Superking bed) and, if the well-equipped kitchen fails to persuade you to cook, there are many fantastic cafes and restaurants nearby.
Outside is just as stunning. Perched on a ridge looking over the farm and down the valley, Cottage 103 boasts incredible views from an expansive deck. The beach is a 15-minute walk down a quiet country road where you can enjoy a romantic stroll on the deserted sands before returning to relax in the cedar hot tub under fairy lights.

Nestled amongst olive trees overlooking the ocean to Kapiti Island, the stunning Kokomea PurePod provides a truly unique accommodation option. Getting to Kokomea PurePod involves a gentle walk through native bush and up the ‘The Gully’ with its beautiful spring-fed, clear stream.
The luxurious facilities include a fabulous shower, crisp linen, a gas hob and a barbeque, but if you don't feel like cooking you can pre-order a delicious breakfast and dinner hamper which will be in the Pod when you arrive.
Wake in the morning to the sunshine twinkling on the sea and the beautiful chorus of birdsong. You won't want to leave.
Dreamscape Glamping is a luxurious glamping site with magnificent views of Kapiti Island and the country vista. Offering you a boutique exotic glamping experience, it may be glamping but you’ll experience many comforts you might not have at home - from outdoor baths under the stars to a fire pit and a beautiful outdoor bar.
You’ll experience a touch of rural living in a slightly urban setting. You may, every now and then, hear a slice of the real world but the chorus of the native birds, farm animals and stunning views provides a world of your own. Enjoy the opulent surroundings with a dash of international vibe in the chic atmosphere of this beautiful glamping setup.
Kāpiti Glamping - Te Hapua Coastal
227 Te Hapua Rd , Te Horo , Waikanae
Te Hapua Coastal Glamping sits on a hilltop on the 23-acre property, overlooking the coastline and ocean, only an hour drive from Wellington. Wake in the morning to the sunshine twinkling on the sea - and Kapiti Island right out in front of you. On a good day, you'll also enjoy views to the South Island, and Mt. Taranaki in the North.
The Te Hapua Coastal Tent is the perfect romantic retreat for couples. Decorated with a subtle Morrocan theme, a luxurious 4-poster bed and comfortable armchairs furnish the tent. A spacious verandah to the front of the tent creates a beautiful space for relaxing in the evening with a G&T.

Kāpiti Glamping - Te Hapua Wetlands
Kāpiti Glamping's Te Hapua Wetlands tent, which sleeps up to five, is the ideal family or group accommodation in a very special setting. The tent sits next to a wetland lake - one of New Zealand's most rare and precious ecosystems and recognised locally as an area of special significance.
Decked out with a luxurious 4-poster queen bed, a bunk room containing 3 single beds, and lots of comfortable seating - everything has been thought of for comfortable glamping. A spacious verandah to the front of the tent is a great gathering space for socialising and watching the wetland wildlife in comfort.
In the evening kick back, relax, and jump in the hot tub (big enough for the whole family) for some soaking and star-gazing.
