Off Grid Power & Heating

Off Grid Solar System in Barnie at Wainui Seaside Glamping

Barnie is completely off-grid using a Fireplace for winter heating and Solar to provide sufficient power for lighting, refrigeration and enough to charge your phone, or ipad. Avoid using hairdyers, hair straighteners, kettles, or coffee machines that use power to heat as this may run the batteries flat and result in no power for lighting and refrigeration.

Our first glamp experience and you have set the bar extremely high. With such beautiful manicured gardens, opening those barn doors each morning was such an utter joy! Each part of our stay was so well thought out, including the provisions... We can't wait to come back in winter to use the fire... We feel so lucky to have stumbled upon Barnie! It was a lovely rnr before rnv. Thank you ALWAYS!

Ruby & Alexander

After a crazy year, it has been so special to switch off and reset for the new year. Everything about this spot is perfect, from the outdoor bath, the water views and the sounds of the birds. Thanks so much for being so welcoming and warm, and for allowing people the opportunity to experience Barnie... We wouldn't have changed anything about this place and wish we could stay here forever. Much love.

Ina & Nige

Absolutely breath taking!!! Was a perfect step back from a busy life in the city. Waking up to the birds and the kettle whistling is one of the only ways everyone should get woken up. The outside bath with the water view and the night sky my absolute favourite part. You have a beautiful setup and have thought about everything. I couldn't have asked for a better place. Little slice of heaven.
