It all started from being a child free to roam and sleep in the forest. After 17 years working as a photographer in Auckland I found this place. Glamping. Luxury in the wilderness.
Is there anything better?
Into a dream where magic becomes real, 35 acres of forest full of moss and lichen, teeming with birds. Three rivers meet, an amphitheatre of wild forest in a secluded corner of Northland. A 1910 kauri bushman’s cottage, added to by a clever architect in the 1980s. A tent pitched in the trees and a converted shipping container above the canopy of the forest. A place to listen for the quiet of the stars and the moon. To drink the wild air.

Reconnect with nature on your own private deck surrounded by native New Zealand forest next to a stream. Hear the call of the kiwi along with tui, kereru and ruru. Travel just 3km to Trounson Kauri Park and experience kiwi in the wild.
