Yurt - Kaikoura

The Yurt is set on a purpose built, raised and insulated wooden floor. The walls and ceiling are completely insulated with thick camel hair. Consequently it is snug and warm in winter; cool and airy in the summer. Alongside, is a purpose built hexagonal toilet building, offering a private shower, toilet and wash basin (set into a gorgeous macrocarpa bench). The yurt shares a fully-equipped outdoor barbecue shelter with our House Truck guests, and includes a gas barbecue, gas pizza oven and sink set on a macrocarpa workbench, along with outdoor tables and seating.

Inside is a single space with:
- a double bed and two separate single beds
- chairs and table, cupboard, blanket box, tea & coffe making facilities

Breakfast= We provide a limited quantity of: milk, breakfast cereal, loaf of bread, butter, home made jam, tea, coffee, sugar, AND (subject to availability) seasonal eggs, seasonal fruit - to help our late arriving guests (only on arrrival day/night, for paying guests only)BB

Bed Linen & Towels = are provided, and are washed in an eco-friendly 'sensitive' detergent, which contains no phosphates, enzymes, fragrance or dyes. It’s super-concentrated, so less packaging & kinder to the environment
