This dazzling, locally owned property sits in the town of Karamea in New Zealand's South Island. With palm trees and the incredible Tasman Sea, glampers will never want to leave their island oasis. The property itself is large and convenient, with picnic tables and a restaurant, cafe, and bar. Karamea feels isolated and charmingly cut off from the rest of the world, nestled between sandy shores and an exotic rainforest. Endless beauty draws visitors in, such as the nature trails of Heaphy Track that run through Kahurangi National Park. Glampers can book tours to explore Honeycomb Hill Caves and Arch, which is truly a sight to behold. They also wander down the coast, visiting nearby cafes and shops.
