Off Grid Power & Heating

The Glamping Tent 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.

Dog Friendly

Tent: Testimonials

Wow, what a magical place! We feel so lucky to have been able to stay in your slice of paradise. We thoroughly enjoyed our kayaking adventure around the island (even when the wind got up!) Our three nights here have been delivered over and above expectations. We couldn't have had a better way to celebrate 20-years married. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Arohanui :)

Trying to do this place justice by not using cliches, but it's hard not to say things like "this was a truly memorable experience" and "this place is paradise".! It was made all the more special by seeing Wolf do his excited dance and watching him explore. Being able to bring him was amazing. Thank you for your warm hospitality...

Chris, Hanna & Wolf

A truly wonderful place, made perfect by two lovely people. A paradise amidst the chaos of the world outside of this glorious spot. We have both had the most uplifting and memorable stay and will treasure the cookbook as a truly special momento of our time time. Much love and gratitude. xxx
