Check-in = after 1pm   (please read the following important information)

We like to welcome you into our property, show you its features and facilities, and answer any questions you have about our site, the Farm Park or Kaikoura. Consequently, when you booked, we asked for your approx. arrival time, and do our best to be available to meet you. However, we sometimes have off-site errands, occasional time off, etc, which might mean that we’re not available. On these rare occasions, we ask our staff to cover for us. Thanks in advance for your understanding.

If you arrive before 4pm, please go to the Farm Park reception & ask for us

Between 4pm and 9pm, please come to our front door (the white building next to the driveway to the Farm Park car park - there is a sign on the gate.

After 9pm, please consider that we are a small family business. We don't have night-time staff. The animals we care for require that we are up very early every day! (We normally go to bed at about 9:30pm). If you arrive late, perhaps you could check-in before going into town for dinner? The properties we have are unusual with features and facilities that need an introduction. If you can only check-in after 9pm, please contact us directly in advance, so we can decide what to do. THANKS for your understanding.

Late Check-in charge = there is a $40/hour charge for checking-in after 9pm. The first $40 charge will be made at 9:01pm. At midnight, the charge increases to $60/hour. This pays for someone to be available when you arrive

If your plans change, and/or you are going to be late arriving, please call: 03 319 5033, or email:

Check-out = before 10:00am

Extended check-out = after 10:00am

We charge $40 per hour if you extend your stay in your property. (The first $40 will be charged at 10:01am). This pays for staff waiting to clean the property.
