Road Trip Chronicles – Wacky Stays (Kaikoura)

While we were on our South Island road trip, we spent in a night in Kaikoura. We booked all our accommodation  for the trip, except for the hotel in Queenstown (which we booked in September) about a month beforehand. In Kaikoura we booked a yurt at a place called Wacky Stays (you can check out their website here), and I’m not going to lie, while sleeping in a yurt was a great experience, the main reason I wanted to stay there was because they also had a farm, and on that farm they had llamas.

In today’s post, I wanted to share some of my favourite photos from our time at Wacky Stays with you

Aside from the obvious novelty factor aside, I had a wonderful time at Wacky Stays –  not gonna lie, wedding aside, it was the highlight of my trip. I would definitely stay there again, although next time, I think we’ll stay a little longer, possibly go whale watching and maybe do a a half day llama trek, because, why not?

Please note: When leaving Wacky Stays, make sure you leave the way you came, rather than following GPS, unless you’re used to driving on unsealed gravel roads/through rivers. Luckily those were the kinds of roads Phillip learnt to drive on, so we were fine, the car was a little messy though.

Have you been to Kaikoura? If so, what’s on your need to do while in town list? I’m a little gutted that we didn’t get to sample any of the crayfish while we there!
