  • Property boarders one of Aucklands beautiful Regional parks with direct walking access to walks.
  • Great swimming beach only mins away.
  • A romantic tranquill weekend getaway with a difference.

The yurt is tastefully decorated with quality furnishings. A wonderful camping experience with all the luxuries of home. Enjoy a hot steamy bubble bath outside under the star in the gorgeous 100 yr old bath heated by way of an old copper, wood fired, water boiler. A clear dome adorns the top of the Yurt so you can enjoy the stars on a clear night night from the super comfortable Queen size bed. At the moment we do not have hot running water but there is an indoor shower (cold) which is very refreashing on those hot summer days.

From the Yurt you have direct walking access to Tapapakanga Regional park which has a rich Maori and European history. Tapapkanga is situated on the Firth of Thames and is part of the Seabird coast and Pacific coast Highway. The secluded beach is ideal for swimming and other recreational activities such as BBQ's, fishing , Kayaking, walking and mountain bike tracks

Only 30 kms to Miranda Hot mineral pools and the Seabird coast Birdwatching centre. 1 hour to Thames which is the gateway to the beautiful Cormandal peninsular . Thames has a rich History of Goldmining and offers a great selection of Shops, Cafes and a wonderful Market every Sat morning.

Special conditions: Smoking in outdoor areas only. Solar powered lighting and phone charging. Ideal for a couple. However if you want to put a couple of kids in a tent outside that would be fine. Meals can be provided by request Kayaks available to hire

    It's a yurt! This is a really plush place to "glamp" - a lot of effort has gone into setting up the yurt and the surrounding decking. The bed is epic - you would not expect such a great bed in a yurt. The outside fire and bath tub are a real standout. There's nothing quite like bathing outside on a muggy summer's night with a full moon staring down at you and a fire by your side, reading tales of Norse mythology.
