Luxury under canvas

The North Waikato has a new glamping destination for couples, families and small groups.

Nestled in the foothills of the Bombay Hills, Nick Buxeda and his partner Sasha Swift are offering a glamping experience like no other in the area.

The couple already run a very successful Farmstay Bed and Breakfast and the next logical step for Nick and Sasha was to expand and offer a fully off-the-grid agri-tourism experience with luxury glamping tents on their working farm.

“Every day we wake up to the most amazing views and we wanted to share a taste of the bush and farming experience with visitors.”
They glamped in the UK and attended the international glamping show as part of their research before importing their six person and three person tents from Holland over a year ago.

The glamping site is situated in a private gully and offers a remote location with breathtaking views, thick native bush, as well as hand-reared farm animals for the kids. Solar powered lights, flushing toilets, gas hot water and an outdoor bath add the touch of luxury that visitors love and expect from a glamping hideaway.

“The bush setting and off-grid experience are a novelty. The kids love the donkey rides and feeding the pet goat, and the adults enjoy the peace and quiet and particularly the stars at night.” Adventure is never far away even though seclusion is everywhere.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
