Mt Gold Wanaka, New Zealand
Our Mt Gold site is awesome. It is located on the top of a hill where you are rewarded with fantastic 180 degree views over Lake Wanaka. The site is nestled in amongst some pine trees, so it’s nice and sheltered and well hidden from public view. (Please note however the walk from your car takes about 5-8 minutes and is up a steep and slippery trail. A moderate level of fitness and good walking shoes are required.) At Mt Gold we have decorated the tent in our Otago Safari Theme. Soft colours, sheepskin rugs, mink throws, antique furniture mixed in with stylish modern decor. It’s adorable and very cosy. We have also decorated the tent in fairy lights which will magically light up when it gets dark and our eccentric mix of LED candles, lanterns and solar lights will turn your evening into a magical wonderland at night. We have paid very close attention to detail and ensured our guests are provided with everything they need to make this holiday truly hassle free.
Our bathroom facilities are very cute. We designed our own high quality canvas tents and had them made here in New Zealand. The toilet is a flushable portable loo and the shower is powered by gas hot water and flows at a rate of 10L per minute. No solar showers here! In keeping with the landscape we decided that in amongst all the glamor we would keep some things rustic, therefore we have chosen a site which has had little influence from man. The land is typically dry and golden underfoot and native scrub abounds. The rabbits have really taken to the area and will be frequently seen nibbling the grass nearby. The land is by no means flat, which is why we recommend good footwear, but it’s the ideal place to come glamping. Access to the site is also for the adventurous. You can choose to Mountain Bike, Kayak, or drive to your site.
Facilities: Cooking utensils which includes pots, pans, crockery, cutlery, glassware, kettle for the gas stove, tea pot and coffee plunger. 10L of cold drinking water (this is taken from the tap and is perfectly fine for drinking, however, bottled water can be provided at an extra charge).

A BBQ and bbq utensils and a single hob gas cooker for the kettle (this must be used outside only). Outside dining table and chairs. Washing up area which includes dish liquid, dish brush, drying rack and tea towels. Complimentary fresh coffee, black tea, an assortment of herbal teas and sugar.

Bathroom: We designed our own tents for the toilet and shower and had them custom made, here in NZ, of the highest quality canvas. We provide guests with a flushable portable toilet and a beautiful gas hot water shower that flows at a rate of 10L per minute.
