Sleeping Under the Stars

Gaze across the river or up at the stars from the deck of our beautiful white canvas safari-style tent set on a permanent timber floor; luxuriate in the super king bed with cosy linen, feather duvets and blankets; enjoy the comfy furniture and perfectly appointed vintage styled little kitchen and bathroom with its hot running water and steaming shower; and wake up to the sun rising over the river, the sound of birds and the gentle splash of fish in the river.

The Tariff:

$280-$350/night (including GST) for 2 people.
Our beautiful 'Glamping' Site is designed exclusively for one couple and provides a unique romantic retreat. We can also accommodate a family with the addition of single beds in the main tent, or a separate tent in the grounds (price on application).

Luxury Tent and Romantic Out Door Bath

This is luxury camping or 'glamping' in style; no tent to pitch, no car loads of gear to unpack, no beds to make, no sleeping bags to unroll and no long drops to negotiate! Our glamping site is the perfect way to enjoy the great outdoors without sacrificing luxury.

Once you've settled into your luxurious safari tent and taken in the beautiful views, discovered all the little details in our vintage styled camp kitchen and bathroom, take a wander down to the riverbank and you'll find your own private and romantic outdoor bath perched overlooking the river, complete with hot running water, and shaded by ancient Pohutukawa trees. The ultimate in romance and relaxation!

And if you're feeling energetic, your own private jetty on the river is equipped with a canoe and is perfect for fishing, swimming or simply gazing at the passing river.

The beautiful little camp kitchen, designed with a rustic and vintage feel, opens via French doors onto a north east facing deck. The kitchen is equipped with a solar powered electric fridge, gas hob, large bbq on the deck, table and chairs and all the crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils you'll need. Behind the kitchen is a lovely little bathroom, with a hot shower, sink and wonderful old fashioned flush toilet.

Candles and lamps provide atmospheric lighting in the tent, and solar panels provide power for the lights in the kitchen and bathroom, electric fridge and a charger point for cameras and phone.

The Glamping Site is free from WiFi, Mobile Phone Coverage and all other intrusions! Telephone and Internet are available a short walk away in the Guest Office next to the main Lodge, and a mobile phone signal can be picked up a 1.5 km up the hill.
