A nature lodge on Kapiti Island

Unlock the treasures of Kapiti Island, a small tranquil island which is home to an abundance of birds. A predator-free paradise, a place where endangered species can once again thrive. This is one of New Zealand’s oldest and most accessible nature reserves. Access to the island is strictly limited to a small number of people each day.

The local Maori, Barrett family has managed the island for over 150 years. Get up close to rare birds such as kaka, kokako, takahe, bellbird and hihi. And of course the endangered kiwi. The surrounding protected waters are also home to an abundance of marine life.

Your family's adventure starts with a ferry ride. Visit the national park, discover walking tracks and spend time swimming at the beach. Nestled in the middle of the Waiorua Valley is your native timber cabin. Your children will love spotting different native birds and listening to their songs.

Completely switch off and immerse yourself in nature, you won’t find any WiFI or mobile coverage in your cabin. It’s all part of the adventure! All meals will be included and served in the main lodge with other guests. A chance to socialize with other families.
