Our glamping experience

Our two glamping sites are perched on top of a hill with views second to none. The bird life is huge in the valley and you will see birds such as Wood Pigeons, Tui's and Bell birds. The hill is farmed by a local farmer and at times there will be sheep on the property. (the Glamp site is fenced off so you won't have sheep knocking at your door)

Our custom 100% real canvas tents include, a king bed, arm chairs, wooden floors and everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay. You can enjoy the simple pleasures of camping, with the perks of hot running water and great amenities. 

We provide all the comforts you might expect in a hotel plus more!




Our custom built tents boast a 3.6m by 4.6m floor plan with a king sized bed and luxurious bedding. Side tables and comfortable arm chairs are a few features you will enjoy in your tents. The tent has a total of 5 windows and 1 door allowing you to decide if you let nature in or keep it out! Out in front is your deck to relax on and take in the view!


Hot running water! Yes hot water for your shower and a flushing toilet. This is your own private bathroom! We Provide:

  • Towels

  • Soaps (shampoo, conditioner, hand soaps etc)


Our outdoor kitchen is shared between the two tents. We provide cleaning products for the clean up. It includes:

  • BBQ (with side burner)

  • Sink

  • Pots, cutlery & utensils

  • Tea & Coffee

  • A chilli-bin to store food, Just bring your own ice!

  • All you need to make a meal

The bathroom and kitchen are situated in between the two glamp sites.


What to bring


You will need to bring your own food for cooking. 


Half of the beauty of the place is to get away so there is no electricity on site! Lighting is solar powered and lamps are provided for extra lighting.


Warm clothes - it can be chilly in the mornings and at night. A warm jersey and long pants are a wise option.


If you enjoy walks there are some great walks around the Peninsula, you might also like to take a walk around the property so as it is a farm your shoes might get muddy!!


Insect repellent and Sunscreen - also a wise option!
