Glamping at Hurunui Jacks

From $190 p/n
Sleeps up to 2

Hurunui Jacks is situated on the West Coast of the South Island, just 12 kilometres from the centre of Hokitika, and metres from the spectacular West Coast Wilderness cycle trail.

It's a very special sort of place - run by a very special sort of couple.

John Plows and Maureen Cook own this piece of Kiwi paradise. And with their own unique brand of West Coast hospitality and style - they've created an unforgettable glamping experience.

Your luxury canvas tent rests on a private spot on the banks of the Kaniere River, nestled amongst ancient virgin forest. Surrounded by National Park and Conservation land - it's 30 acres of total peace and tranquility - and the perfect couples get-away.

The campsite has a rustic, fully covered and enclosed camp kitchen with hot water heated by an old-school, wood-fired chippie. You can either cook on the gas BBQ, gas rings - or try camp-style cooking over an open fire.

Enjoy a steaming hot shower in the camp bathroom...and later enjoy a glass of wine and a soak in an outdoor bath under the stars. Then, tucked up in your comfortable bed, between 100% cotton sheets and under a pure wool duvet, you'll be able to lie back and relax to the sounds of the river and the bush…

The tent is kept warm and toasty with a wood-burning stove, so summer or winter, you'll be camping in complete comfort.

On the property is a lake filled with rainbow trout. Give fly-fishing a try! Or simply take a walk through the private marked walk that meanders through the native bush.

A paradise for wildlife - bush robins, fantails, tuis, bellbirds, and native wood pigeons - flit through the moss covered rimu, matai and totara trees.

If canvas walls aren't for you, don't worry, Maureen and John also have the atmospheric and cosy cottage accommodation 'The Nest'.

So...if you’re looking for a really wonderful experience, Hurunui Jacks is the place to visit. Lose yourself in the West Coast wilderness. Enjoy the peace… and the ethereal feeling of being surrounded by ancient bush, in a truly unique landscape.
