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.
We have two beautiful cats that love pats and having a cuddle.
