Staying in a yurt is a beautiful experience, you will feel so at home amongst nature. Our 6 metre yurt style is modern retro, bohemian and quirky - a unique glamping experience.

We have 10 hectares of meadows and native bush, and we invite you to be a part of our solar powered, earth loving lifestyle.

The yurt includes a big king size bed and then mattresses that we can pull out for kids/ guests. The beautiful, sustainably built bathroom is off the deck and includes a compost toilet (please follow the rules of use) and hot shower. There is a small, covered kitchenette with basic supplies and a two hob stove for simple cooking and cups of tea.

You will get a key to our back gate which takes you immediately on to Conservation land and the many beautiful walks of the Karangahake Gorge, and even the Kamai Ranges if you are keen for a real mission! Sit out on the deck and watch the sunset on the mountain, watch the galaxy of stars appear over your head as the native ruru and glowworms make an appearance.

We are happy to either leave you in peace or show you around a little! If we are around and you have children we would love to take your on the farm rounds to feed the ducks and collect the eggs and check on the calves and goats. We will point you in the right direction for the world famous tunnels and swimming spots. We will try and be sensitive to your needs and what you would like.
