Sleeping and meals
We have a fishing lodge
at Lake Brunner on the West Coast. This house has 3 double bedrooms, one bunkroom. Fully furnished, very comfortable, and only 200 yards from the lakes edge. Our home-style accommodation is also available in Christchurch, and at Kaikoura. Wilderness camping trips are comfortable, tents and tarps affairs, and the "roughing it a litle" is still pretty comfortable.
