View of Kaikoura Seaside Lodge from the road

Kaikoura Seaside Lodge originally provided accommodation for sea research students, then later became a YHA hostel. It was purchased in 2016 and became the privately-owned Kaikoura Seaside Lodge, as it is now known. Open for only a few weeks before the 2016 Kaikoura earthquakes, the lodge was re-opened in late 2018 much to the delight of its guests.

Husband and wife, Storm and Cara, now manage the lodge together.
