Our yurt is designed and built by Kiwiyurts in Hawkes Bay using top quality materials and is well insulated both under floor, and walls. There is a ducted heat pump for warmth during colder winter nights and for cooling in the hot summer months. Or you can open the windows and allow the cooling breeze to flow through, but without the worry of insects as there are mesh screens over the windows. You can look up to the night sky through the clear dome at the top of the yurt.
The interior offers a luxurious and calming environment, with beautiful views across part of our garden and into the neighbouring orchard. The property itself is quiet and peaceful as it is two blocks away from the traffic noise of State Highway 2. Ultimately you will be in your own private garden, but some of the hedges still need to grow, however you are screened off from the main house by a well established hedge. You can access our yurt down a separate driveway to the back of our property.
Enjoy the large, secluded outdoor bath, positioned right outside the Yurt’s French door entrance. There is also a substantial deck area with outdoor seating to enjoy a glass of wine and watch the local bird life (harrier hawkes and wood pigeons fly over during the day), or enjoy watching the sun set over the Tararuas. Please be assured that you will have complete privacy while you rent our yurt as we do not need to access the back of our property.
We appreciate top quality accommodation ourselves and so we have set our yurt up with premium facilities. The yurt has a super comfortable king size bed, with superior linen and bedding, luxurious soft towels and robes. The ensuite is well appointed with a large 1m x 1.2m shower and heated towel rail are on one side of interior wall, and the toilet and large vanity are on the other side. We use ‘Real World’ luxury toiletries, they use natural plant based products without all the nasty chemicals. You will have their Kowhai Flower & Lemon Verbena Body Wash, Lime Blossom & Kiwi Seed Shampoo and Conditioner, Sandalwood & Rose Geranium Hand Wash as well as their Vertiver & Lavender Sleep Bath Salts and Black Raspberry & Vanilla Bath Foam during your stay.
We will supply you with our homemade Paleo muesli, greek yoghurt, and milk, for breakfast. We will also provide you with fresh ground Mojo coffee and a selection of teas. You can also wander into town for brunch or dinner at one of the local restaurants and cafes, we have offered some recommendations below.
Checkin is anytime after 3pm, and checkout is at 12pm. We can leave the key in the door of the yurt or you can collect it from us when you arrive, please let us know what you prefer. Please also ask if you would like a later check out as this may be able to be accommodated. We prefer a minimum 2 night stay.
