Thriving lodge, ready for new ownership!

The owners have a new project and want their much loved accommodation business sold.
If you are wanting a Kaikoura Lifestyle where you can live and work on-site, this successful accommodation business is a great opportunity.
Te Mahuru Retreat is undoubtedly a successful accommodation venue offering complete privacy; it is peaceful and tranquil with beautiful gardens designed for year-round colour, including weeping Maple and Chinese Lantern trees just to name a few, also native plantings to attract the birds. It is an ideal place for weddings, family reunions and corporate retreats.
Te Mahuru has five self-contained suites, each with an ensuite bathroom, mountain views and private garden access, that share a full kitchen, living room and dining room located within the lodge building. These suites can be booked separately or for a group of up to 13 people.
In addition to the Lodge, there is a cottage that can sleep 6, this is an amazing place to relax and reconnect with your friends and family. It has its own large lawn and spectacular views. The Cottage has its own kitchen and BBQ area.
The owner's accommodation is separate and private with three bedrooms, and two stunning new bathrooms, ideal for a live-in family or manager. There is plenty of parking available as well as a 10 x 25sqm hanger shed which would be great for classic car collectors and toys.
Guests can bike, walk, or just enjoy their stay here which is only five minutes from Whalewatch. The adult stargazing chairs have proven popular to capture the Dark Sky in Kaikoura. The hot tub area is a favourite too for those that want to relax and kick back. Te Mahuru Retreat over the past two years has been operating at circa 90% occupancy. Repeat business is significant in ensuring business continuity and success with an exceptionally high occupancy rate and weddings booked already in place over the next 12 months.
The lodge caters for weddings, retreats where corporate companies stay and work, and other large groups.
A lot of the hard work has been done to put in place robust procedures and systems, along with the blueprint of the marketing required to continue growing occupancy and wedding events.

To be sold plus GST if any.
