Secluded, casual and all yours. The perfect romantic getaway for those that love getting back to basics.

This is a piece of Kiwi nostalgia where you feel the joy of freedom camping but you still go to bed at night on a proper mattress with lovely sheets. Bring the kids, bring the dog or just yourselves for a romantic weekend under the stars.

The Beach Huts at Driftwood are nestled into native bush on a private peninsula just outside the boutique village of Kerikeri, a mornings drive from Auckland. They are delightful and have been featured on the TV show, Kiwi Living! These gorgeous twin eco-huts are designed with relaxation, ambience and the great outdoors in mind; explore the lush surrounding forest, take the dinghy for a row or pull up a hammock and dream.

One hut sleeps up to 4 with 1 queen and 2 loft singles, snuggle into luxury linen and listen to the ocean and native birdsong. Self-catering with simple larder supplies, the second hut holds a very basic camp kitchen and dining nook. Outside, enjoy the pizza oven, BBQ, swings and water lapping right at your doorstep. Bring the boat and be at the Cavalli Island’s in minutes.

With a focus on providing a unique & nostalgic experience for our visiting adventurers, you are free to roam our 16 acres of vineyard, native bush, streams, mature landscaping, horses, fruit trees and private coves. Back at the bach, stargaze at the fire pit, shoot the breeze and indulge in quirky books, games and art.

Wine from our onsite vineyard is available. Lush touches like Wallace Cotton linen, loads of beach towels plus marshmallows for toasting put the glam in camping! No detail is forgotten, your escape is ready and waiting.

Special conditions: The Beach Huts are not easily accessible by wheelchair. From the parking you must cross a small bridge and lawn area to access the Huts. This may not be suitable for elderly or mobile impaired guests. Due to the camping nature of the huts, the Beach Huts are not available over the winter months. If you are interest in day use of the Beach Huts for events please do not hesitate to call or text us!

    Such a lovely Glamping Bach, very private area. Remember to shop before arriving at the Bach as the local shops are 15 mins drive away.
