Quirky, private, peaceful, and made from recycled materials, you are on top of a hill with rural views. Off-grid you can laze in the shady hammock, cook dinner on the fire barbecue, toast marshmallows under the stars, or snuggle in the earth-insulated bedroom.

Farm animals will wander past and the sustainable property is full of fruit and nut trees and edible plants.

A peaceful retreat in paradise to relax with good cafes are just down the road and some wonderful attractions nearby.

The space
You are on a private site overlooking the Puketirau valley, which contains the lush, productive Waikato farmland preferred by the hobbits. It is a peaceful and private setting amongst working farmland.
Maungatautari Mountain bird sanctuary is over your shoulder, silhouetted against spectacular sunsets that will deepen into the starry milky way.
You have your own open campfire (in a recycled bath!) with cooking plates and billy hooks, a massage shower with a view and a flush composting toilet.
At night, you are warm and comfortable inside the underground room with a queen bed and genuine NZ wool blankets.
Surrounding your campsite is my productive farmlet. Pigs, ducks, sheep and cows may well wander past and ask for a tidbit. I collect food-producing plants and grow all my own food sustainably and organically with an emphasis on nutrient density. I love sharing my lifestyle with people by a farm tour in the mornings.

Where you’ll be

Tirau, Waikato, New Zealand

You are in the middle of rural NZ but nearby Tirau village is a shopping destination with a variety of good cafes.
Rotorua, Waitomo, Taupo, Hamilton and Tauranga are all less than an hour's drive away.
Hobbiton is around the corner and you can see Mt Maungatautari bird sanctuary from your campsite.
The stunning Te Waihou walkway is just south of us, Waikato Rivier Trail passes on the other side of the ridge and it is a 10 minute drive to some great kayaking spots on upper Lake Karapiro.
We also have some great golf courses close by, hot springs to swim in, and a quirky country museum.
Or just relax in the hammocks with some of our books and magazines and enjoy being here.

I feel incredibly lucky to live is such a lush and scenic part of New Zealand and have a lifestyle which enables me to live with the land, producing my own food and having the freedom to make my own lifestyle choices.
I also feel a responsibility towards the earth and think by living sustainably and making my little corner of it healthy for future generations, I am contributing in a very small way to making the whole world better.
I can do this without compromising my comforts or my lifestyle and I like showing by example, that one can live comfortably and be sustainable.
