Set in the bush fronting on to the beautiful Rangiputa Beach on the Karikari Peninsula, DreamCatchers boutique tents balance comfort and style with nature’s beauty and tranquillity to create a truly magical experience.

With your yurt like tent, set in your own private clearing amongst native New Zealand bush you can stroll down the path to the beautiful white sands of Rangiputa beach.

Soft beds, pure cotton sheets, wooden floors, your own covered kitchen and solar shower - it really is a touch of luxury close to nature - otherwise known as glamping!

DreamCatchers tented accommodation is located on Rangiputa Beach, a true watersports paradise. You can kitesurf, paddleboard, wakeboard, waterski, kayak, snorkel, dive, sail, fish – whatever takes your fancy.

We are totally off grid here, so lighting is by solar power, and cooking is by gas. We can charge phones, cameras and computers for you, though it's best to come with them fully charged, or even better to forget about your phone and computer for a while, and really escape!

The Karikari peninsula is one of the best places in the world to kitesurf with beaches facing every direction. As Kari means wind, there is usually always somewhere to kitesurf and spots vary from flat water at Rangiputa, where you will have private access to the beach, to waves at Tokerau Beach. You can take lessons in our kitesurfing school or just get out there and enjoy. And if you don't want to kitesurf, the different beaches within a very small distance of each other mean there is always somewhere sheltered to sit and relax.

Explore the beautiful harbour by paddleboard, or snorkel the reef to see the amazing sponge gardens. Catch snapper from the beach or charter a boat for the day and cook your catch on the barbeque.

There is a beautiful winery within 10 minutes drive with a cafe offering coffee and lunch with stunning views, and lovely shops and restaurants at Mangonui half an hour away.

Special conditions: We have a strict no fire or naked flame policy due to the high fire risk in summertime, and there is a total fire ban on the whole peninsula including the beaches. If you smoke we ask that you put any cigarettes out completely in a sand bucket or with water to avoid any potential risk, and please don't smoke inside the tent. Please don’t use lighted mosquito coils or candles, and instead use repellent and spray if needed . Your tent also has a mozzie net.

  • AMAZING PLACE!!!! Incredible experience and such a paradise to wake up too

    AMAZING PLACE!!!! Incredible experience and such a paradise to wake up too. Bbq could use a set of tongs and the worm short drop was a bit of a challenge (for those that are not use to camping). But overall wonderful place that I would recommend to anyone.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for your feedback Candy. We really enjoyed having you to stay. The BBQ now has a set of tongs!! The worm composting toilet does sometimes take a bit of getting used to, but it all adds to the experience! Take care and hope to see you again sometime. Zoe and Berny

  • Don't usually like camping, but loved staying here

    Don't usually like camping, but loved staying here. Hidden in the woods amid marshland and sand flats, next to a supremely restful beach, I felt comfortable, private and secure. Bed was one of the best I ever slept in! Insects no issue once we kept the tent 'door' closed - there are netted 'windows'. The ‘kitchen’ is awesome – a great place to sit, two gas hobs and a BBQ, all the utensils you need. It is camping, so no running water, no WiFi, and a worm toilet (much nicer than that sounds)!
