We only stayed for one night in the yurt and had to leave very early in the morning to catch a flight but what a lovely experience. The area surrounding the yurt is beautiful. A real 'get away from it all' place. We arrived in blistering hot sunshine and enjoyed an afternoon sitting out on the deck. The yurt is well equipped and has just about everything you could need. The wind picked up in the afternoon and by the time we went to bed it must have been gale force! What an experience, being in a glorified tent in a gale! Both the yurt and its inhabitants survived intact!
If we ever come back to NZ we will definitely stay for longer. There is so much to do in the area and we wish we had been able to enjoy the kayaks the owner had for guests to use.
