You can meander up the beautiful Wainui South River under the three amazing bridges into clear fresh water and rolling hillsides or down the river to Tauranga Harbour. Maybe a tad of fishing or exploring the islands. We take great pride in the appearance of the site with manicured lawns and everything kept clean and tidy. Firewood split and at the ready. Lay in the hammock and listen to the birds. Relax on the bean bags. Enjoy a candle lit dinner with candles (supplied) at the table for two. Sit by the river with a glass of wine. The spot is very private. Retire to the Lotus Belle Tent and slip between the fresh posh linen. Solar lights inside the tent add a romantic atmosphere. We can also cater with free range eggs for brekie. Beautiful flowers from our wonderful neighbours and offer a fine range of local wines. We have wonderful restaurants, the Fairview Golf Club. Beautiful beaches and cafes just 5 minutes up the road,. Amazing bush walks in the Kaimai Ranges not to mention astounding waterfalls. Tauranga in only 20 minutes away and Katikati 10 minutes.

A great place all to yourself. Wow!

If there are more of you there is another tent site and you are welcome to pitch your tent there with additional charges.

There is a large BBQ table for bigger groups. There is also a boat ramp for small boats to launch off and access the Tauranga Harbour. We do have a smoke house if you are interested in smoking your catch.

Special conditions: Just the general respect and care of our property while staying. Using all care near and on the water, wearing lifejackets and respecting neighbouring properties. Closing all gates that you have had to open. Taking care not to injure yourself or others through carelessness or by accident and making wise and safe decisions whilst on our property and having fun.

    We had such an amazing time, it was really private an awesome spot to wind down and relax. Has a fully functional kitchen with pots and stuff so all you need to take is food, would be a good idea to take ice with you (they provide a cool box too). Andrea was a lovely host and we will definitely recommend staying at the lotus-belle! :D

  • Great camping/glamping experience

    Great camping/glamping experience. Be aware there is no refrigerator and no power (I was unaware of that at time of booking). The property is well-situated, right off the river and very private. Excellent for a couple (perhaps with small children)! Will definitely go again!
