Unique Stays

If staying somewhere a little bit different and a little bit special is on the cards, you are sure to find the right spot at one of the many glamping options on the Kāpiti Coast.

Dreamscape Glamping


View map

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.

Kokomea PurePod

Te Horo

View map

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.


Dirt Farm's Glamping Yurts

Dirt Farm's six unique glamping yurts are nestled in the beautiful hills of Te Horo.  Completely off-the-grid they feel worlds away, yet have all the amenities you need/want, including a hot tub and your own private bathroom just steps away.  They are also fully lined to keep the heat in during winter and the sun out in summer, and equipped with a wood burner to keep you snug on those cold days.

Yurt glamping is the perfect getaway from the daily hustle and bustle - you'll feel completely disconnected from the world,  yet shops/restaurants are just 25mins away.

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.   Read the Stuff review
