Wainamu Luxury Tents
Reviewed 2 November 2013

A short drive from Auckland, Wainamu Luxury Tents was a very pleasant surprise! We were met at The Bethells Cafe by Anna and Jim and followed them in our car to their secluded hideaway. Nestled behind giant sand dunes and green paddocks, we felt isolated (what we wanted) but with every amenity we could need.

The tent we stayed in was well equipped. The bedroom had an extremely comfortable bed with AMAZING pillows. It was furnished with candles and lanterns, and the sheets were welcoming and high quality. The lounge contained a lounge/futon so families can be accommodated, as well as couples. The "patio" has deck chairs and pantry. The outdoor kitchen has numerous cooking options including a BBQ, campfire or gas hob. Finally the outdoor bath was superb! A DEEP cast iron bath with plenty of hot water. A wonderful way to round off a day after hiking the surrounding area!

The little touches throughout the campsite made the stay even more magical. Chocolates, tea light candles in the trees, fresh herbs and flowers, Kiwi memorabilia scattered around... Anna and Jim have really set up a haven away from the hustle and bustle of city life! We are already looking forward to our next stay... and sharing the experience with family and friends when they visit us in NZ!

This is a unique tranquil untouched piece of paradise that can only be described as stunning! The detail that your friendly hosts go to is not seen anywhere else here in New Zealand. From the fresh herbs waiting in your ready stacked outdoor fire (stove), to the fresh flowers in jugs, pots/pans hanging in the tree by the fire, potted herbs on the table. The outdoor cooking/dining option is priceless. The setting & facilities are truly admirable. The pantry supplies so homely and welcoming. Home made bag supporting farm laid fresh eggs, sweetly scented fresh home made bread tea towel wrapped, local supplies & home made preserves/pickles add to the extreme detail these hosts go to. The bed & bedlinen of very high quality, as are the bathroom supplies of luxury hand soap & body lotion. The outdoor ol bath is bliss, nothing beats having an outdoor bath under the stars, with your own private site listening to the bird song. The bird life alone is something to die for. Other bathroom facilities are top notch, as are the extra added items in your apartment! There is nothing that has not been thought of. It is all catered for. Beach & walks exquisite, the list goes on. This has to be a NZ Must Do!! You can not experience anything like this anywhere else in NZ. I give this place top 10 plus. You need to go experience this for yourself to truely appreciate it. Well done & thanks so much Jim & Anna. One truely magical place.

A night in the tent has to be experienced to see how this is so different to other accommodation .
All the benefits of being remote and close to nature with none of the discomforts . Bath under the stars in a hot bath , sleep in a luxurious bed , watch the day pass from the comfort of a couch .
I have travelled to world and this is hard to beat.
I used the tent as a personal retreat and was totally refreshed and restored .
It is also a wonderfully romantic hideaway.
