About Portable Cabins

A portable cabin, is generally a small, simple, one room building that is designed to be easily moved, rather than permanently located. Portable cabins are extremely versatile, they may be used for long-term, temporary or permanent facilities. Cabins are competitively priced because they are usually constructed in a factory. Cabins are considered to be a small basic house or shelter, with simple living utilities, often constructed from logs. The most familiar modern type of portable cabins are designed to be impermanent, and are transported to or from site on a trailer, and are easily positioned on site.

About North Canterbury, Hanmer and Kaikoura

North Canterbury, comprising the Waimakariri and Hurunui districts, has a population base of more than 50,000 with 25% residing in the Hurunui District. The region boasts strong agricultural and horticultural secotrs based on some 800,000 ha of productive land. There are over 8,000 businesses which, in the main, employ fewer than five people.

Significant residential development in the north of the region is driven by recreation needs.

Main attractions include the Hanmer Springs Theraml Reserve, the picturesque Hanmer Springs and the expanding Waipara Valley with its many award-winning wineries, olive groves and lavender farms. These areas in North Canterbury, along with Kaikoura have been connected through the formation of the Alpine Pacific Triangle which links the Hanmer Springs Thermal Reserve, the Waipara Wine Valley and Kaikoura.

The beaches, rivers and their lower reaches are extremely popular fishing destinations, along with surfing, sailing, kayaking, rowing and swimming.

Kaikoura is popular tourist destination, mainly for whale watching and swimming with or near dolphins. There is also a large and readily observed colony of southern fur seals at the eastern edge of the town. At low tide, better viewing of the seals can be had as the ocean gives way to a rocky base which is easily navigable by foot for quite some distance.

It is also one of the best reasonably accessible places in the world to see open ocean seabirds such as albatrosses, petrels and shearwaters

The town has a beautiful setting, as the seaward Kaikoura mountains, a branch of the, come nearly to the sea at this point on the coast. Because of this, there are many walking tracks up and through the mountains. A common one for tourists is the Mt. Fyffe track, which winds up Mt. Fyffe, and gives a panoramic view of the Kaikoura peninsula from the summit.
