Popular Activities for Families

The Factory is the perfect place if you are looking for luxury Kaikoura family accommodation and unique family activities.

The guest wing is self-contained and fully equipped with 3 bedrooms, a bathroom, open-plan living and kitchen as well as a private courtyard with spa and a huge lawn area for the children to play games, run around and just get back to nature.  There is a tree-hut and a flying fox (for small children) and lots of gardens for children to experience the joys of picking fruit straight from the trees.

Although the bedrooms all have king beds there is a beautiful rimu cot available as well as a single bed that can be set up in the spacious end bedroom.

Children love our resident hen, Poppy and the wild ducks who visit as well as the little things like the heart-shaped stones and the paua shells hanging in the garden.  Although the beach is not safe for swimming it is wonderful for finding treasures among the rocks and driftwood and making rock sculptures and driftwood huts. Our resident Hector’s dolphins are curious and will often appear close to the edge of the beach on hearing the sounds of children’s voices – they especially love singing!

Whole days can be whiled away painting on the rocks, listening to the different bird sounds and finding lots of different quirky features around the property.

Kaikoura itself is paradise for children with all the amazing marine life off the Kaikoura coast. Once-in-a-lifetime activities for families are just a 10-minute drive away from The Factory: Whale Watch, Dolphin Encounter, Seal Swim, Albatross Encounter, Kaikoura Kayaks are just a few among them.  

If you are looking for Kaikoura family accommodation that is unique, luxurious and family friendly The Factory is the perfect place for you.
