Location + Surroundings
Surrounded by rolling countryside, majestic stands of pohutukawa trees, and a spectacular coastline featuring more than five miles of white sand beach, this glamping site is located in Pakiri, New Zealand, at the north end of the Auckland region. Here, guests will find a seaside paradise, filled with opportunities to swim, relax, explore, and engage in outdoor recreation—at the site itself, the many other beaches in the area, and the nearby Goat Island Marine Reserve, which is home to an abundance of protected marine life and a pristine coastal environment.
However, the location is more than just a beach destination; it is also nestled within the Matakana Coast Wine Country, which is filled with vineyards, wineries, arts and crafts galleries, collectibles shops, cafes, restaurants, markets, and the historic Matakana Village, which is only 26 minutes away from the site. For more shopping, wining, and dining, as well as golfing, guests can also head down to Warkworth or Wellsford, both of which are about half an hour away. In the surrounding region, guests will also find a number of parks and gardens with hiking trails, including Mahurangi Regional Park, Scandrett Regional Park, Tawharanui Regional Park, Omaio Garden, and Omaha Forest.
While it feels remote, the site is not far from the cities of Whangarei and Auckland, both of which are about an hour and a half away to the north and south, respectively. Read More
