Glamping

PRIVATE & SECLUDED LUXURY CAMPING FOR 2 GUESTS ON THE RIVER

About

Nestled in a private corner of our organic farm, overlooking a bend in the beautiful Takou River, welcome to your very own private and secluded Luxury Campsite. Designed exclusively for one couple or a family, this is the ultimate private space to relax, reconnect & rejuvenate.

‚ÄčThis is luxury camping or 'glamping' in style; no tent to pitch, no car loads of gear to unpack, no sleeping bags to unroll and no long drops to negotiate! 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.

Wander down to the riverbank to your own private and romantic outdoor bath perched overlooking the river, complete with hot running water, and shaded by ancient Pohutukawa trees. Feeling energetic? Your private jetty on the river is equipped with a canoe and is perfect for fishing, swimming or simply gazing at the passing river.

Amenities

Our luxury Glamping Site has been designed exclusively for a couple. The beautiful white safari tent looks across the river to the sunrise and has a luxurious super king bed, cosy linens and vintage furnishings. A few paces away is your own private and beautiful little kitchen cabin, designed with a rustic and vintage feel, opening via French doors onto a north-east facing deck. The kitchen is fully equipped with a solar powered electric fridge, gas hob, large BBQ, table and chairs, and all the crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils you'll need. Adjoining the kitchen is a lovely little bathroom, with a hot shower, sink and wonderful old-fashioned flush toilet. This is Glamping in style!

Candles and solar lamps provide atmospheric lighting, and solar panels provide power for the lights in the kitchen and bathroom, electric fridge and a charging station 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.

“ Thank you so much for having us. We enjoyed staying next to the river, kayaking and fishing. We also loved feeding the calf Horatio! All of us wish we could stay longer! Hopefully we'll be able to come back again. „
