The kitchen features a stove, a refrigerator, a microwave, and all the cooking utensils guests will need in order to whip up some tasty meals. Meals can be enjoyed at the dining table inside or at the intimate table outside on the deck from which the lovely views can be admired.

Shantytown Heritage Village is a two-minute drive from the property, and Paroa is about a five-minute drive, where glampers will find the closest beach, a local pub serving evening meals, and a dairy for essentials or perhaps to treat themselves to an ice cream or milkshake. Paroa is also the closest access point to the Wilderness Cycle Trail, which covers 132 kilometers from Greymouth to Ross. A little further along the road heading north, there is a combined dairy and fish and chip shop, Four J's. The hosts recommend this as a great option for a sunny west coast evening while watching the sunset at the beach. More places to dine can be found in Greymouth, located at 12 to 15 minutes driving from the glamping site.
There are several walking areas in and around Greymouth, such as Point Elizabeth, Coal Creek, and Woods Creek to name a few. The Wilderness Cycle Trail also runs through Greymouth and along the flood wall and has great walking access. Located in Greymouth are a lovely museum and some great local art; Stewart Nimmo Gallery and Garth Wilson Jade Carving (on Rutherglen Road) are highly recommended. If guests need any information for any activities in the area, the hosts will be able to give them contact details and advice.
