Spend a night or two 'off the Grid' (no Power) in our self-catering Genuine Mongolian Yurt. A unique experience and less than 1 hour from Auck Airport. Beaut swimming beach only a few mins drive then relax under the stars in a gorgeous 100 yr old outdoor bath (SORRY THE BATH IS OUT OF ACTION TEMPORARILY WHILST THERE IS A FIRE BAN IN PLACE. feb 2020)

The space
The Yurt is tastefully decorated with quality furnishings. A wonderful camping experience with all the luxuries of home. Relax and enjoy a steamy hot bath outside under the stars in a 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 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 refreshing in those hot summer days.

Guest access
The Yurt is fully self contained and self catering. We offer a complimentary continental breakfast however others meals can be provided by arrangement. It operates completely off the grid but has Solar lighting and a place to charge your Mob ph (if you really cant do without it) . Wheelchair friendly access.

Other things to note
We have two small dogs who do bark at strangers but we will endeavor to keep them confined to our place so they don't cause any issues for you during your stay.
We have Kayaks available for your use if you would like to spend some time exploring the hidden little coves that are not accessible by road. You would need a van or have roof racks to get them to the beach just in case we are not available to ferry them down for you.

Location

Auckland, New Zealand

We are situated only 50 mins south of Auckland CBD. Take a beautiful drive through the quaint little village of Clevedon which hosts a number of craft shops and has a local Farmers market every Sunday morning. Then travel on through Kawakawa bay towards Orere Point. Our property boarders on to one of Aucklands most beautiful Regional Parks - Tapapakanga which has a lovely sandy swimming beach and is a great fishing spot.
Tapapakanga is situated on the north western shores of the Firth of Thames. This coast is also known as the Sea Bird Coast and is popular with Birdwatchers from all around the world. It is also part of the Kayak Trail - starting from Maraetai and finishing in Waharau. You can complete the whole 4 day trail or just have a leisurely paddle around the shoreline exploring all the hidden little coves. A five min drive takes you to a very popular fishing spot - The Mussel farms off Matinagarahi Beach. Your boat can be launched from here directly from the beach with a 4 wheel drive or there are two Boat Ramps within 15 kms either direction. Kawakawa Bay Boat ramp is accessible in all tides and Kaiaua Boat ramp
You can take leisurely 30 min coastal drive south through Kaiaua to the Miranda Hot Pools which are Natural Mineral pools.
A 50 min drive south and you can explore the Thames Market which is held on a Sat morn. Thames township is the beginning of the Coromandal Peninsular which has a rich history of Gold mining and has many attractions that are well worth visiting.
