Te Hāpua Coastal

Te Hāpua Coastal

Kapiti Coast

Te Hāpua Glamping is set on the coastal dune zone on the Kapiti Coast, close to Te Horo Beach, and just 1 hour from Wellington City.

Te Hāpua Coastal Tent sits on a hilltop on the 23-acre property, overlooking the coastline and ocean. Wake in the morning to the sunshine twinkling on the sea - and Kapiti Island right out in front of you. On a good day, you'll also enjoy views to the South Island, and Mt Taranaki in the North.

Te Hāpua Coastal is the perfect romantic retreat for couples. Decorated with a subtle Morrocan theme, a luxurious 4-poster bed and comfortable armchairs furnish the tent. A spacious verandah to the front of the tent creates a beautiful space for relaxing in the evening with a G&T.

There's plenty to keep you happy right there. The comfortable surrounds may mean you're happy to just relax and soak up the views. A hot tub just off the verandah is perfectly situated to enjoy the stunning sunsets. 

The property is 700 m from the beach access and 1 km from the water's edge.... just head down for a quick dip or a sunset walk.

  • Eating and Drinking

    Te Hāpua Coastal Glamping is self-catering. Just bring your own food and cook meals using the BBQ and equipment provided in your private camp kitchen. There is a Nespresso machine so if you like a good coffee, bring some Nespresso pods along with you. You'll find all the cutlery, crockery, pots and pans, and utensils that you'll need.

    If you want a break from cooking at any stage and feel like a meal out, check out The Salt and Wood Collective (great craft beer) or The Front Room in nearby Waikanae (6 minutes drive or a 20-minute cycle down the beach).

    The Bus Stop Cafe at Te Horo Beach is a great place to grab a coffee and a scone.

    The nearest supermarket is in Waikanae, 6-minutes drive away.

  • Things to do

    Te Hāpua Glamping offers plenty of fun to keep you entertained during your stay. From soaking in the hot tub and taking in the Kapiti Island sunset view to toasting marshmallows on the fire pit in the evening - you'll find it hard to tear yourselves away.

    The beach access is just a 10-minute walk down a safe country road - great for swimming and walking.

    The local area has plenty to keep you busy too! Swim at the nearby beaches, check out the outlet shops in Otaki - or get into nature. Nga Manu Nature Reserve is just down the road in Waikanae and Otaki Forks has some great short bush walks to enjoy. 

  • Your Hosts

    Your Hosts at Te Hāpua, Charlie and Kelly Meyer and their three kids George, Harvey and Rosa have lived on their coastal property for three years and have been on the Kapiti Coast since 2006.

    Charlie was formerly in the sports retail industry and Kelly is a Registered nurse. The children are all at secondary school.

    The whole family love the outdoors and all five have contributed to the ideas and concepts that have now become Te Hapua Glamping.

    They are very proud of what they have created on their land on the Kapiti Coast and look forward to sharing their unique piece of paradise with you.
