If you love the beach and cozy retreats, we've found the glamping getaway for you. This oh-so-quaint retro caravan set on the Pohutukawa Coast in Beachlands, Auckland, is available for rent and accommodates two.
You can snuggle up with your S.O. on the plush double-size bed that also serves as a table. The playful, light-filled accommodation is complete with a small kitchen outfitted with a gas stovetop and under-bench oven.
Outside, glampers can sit and watch the waves lapping the shore or enjoy a meal cooked up on the barbecue al fresco. It's also good to know that bathroom facilities are available at the campsite, and the caravan is equipped with a solar shower.
The caravan is located in Omana Regional Park where there is a variety of activities available to guests, from visiting a beach village with a small town feel to exploring the great outdoors. The beach is a five-minute walk from the caravan, and kayaks are available for guests to enjoy the water. Glampers can also walk along the boardwalk surrounded by mangroves, enjoy a scenic picnic, or go for a refreshing swim in the sea.
There are hiking, biking, and walking trails that offer ample opportunities to take in the natural beauty around Beachlands. Additionally, the beach village boasts a small but lively downtown area with shops and restaurants.
Nearby attractions include Pine Harbour Marina and Maraetai Beach Boat Club, which have sailing and fishing plus waterfront restaurants. On Saturdays, there's a French market at Marina Green where guests can try local bites while enjoying the sounds of soft jazz. Further away is Downtown Auckland, accessible by ferry or car (a 40-minute drive away), which makes for a great day trip.
Rates start at $84 per night. Visitors should note that there's an additional $15 park fee not included in the rate. Check out the listing on Glamping Hub.
