An Island to Yourself for Xmas?
Kiwi super-mum entrepreneurs and camping enthusiasts Liz Henderson and Sonia Minaar know only too well what Christmas can be like – especially when the family wants to go camping.
Which is why they started Canopy Camping – New Zealand’s glamour camping site offering off-the-grid ‘glamour camping’ experiences around the country – delivering all the wonders of camping in nature and none of the hassle!
“We both love camping and but at this time of year, as all mothers know, it is always such a huge chore packing and organising food and bedding and then unpacking it all at the site – it’s enormous.”
“With all our glamour camping you can turn up in beautiful New Zealand wilderness and your luxury tent or accommodation is all laid on with beds, blankets, food and comfort – in some cases you’ve even got ensuites.
“It’s the ultimate off-the-grid digital detox experience without any effort.”
At this time of year, the glamping sites book up rapidly which is why Liz and Sonia are offering Xmas glamping vouchers.
And there are some special sites including a shrub covered Hobbit home in the Waikato, a retro caravan in Nelson, an exclusive Kapiti Island glamp and the vast open ocean hill-top tents in the Wairarapa – and an extra special new addition, a private island retreat.
“We’ve just added Slipper Island to our selection, it’s a small, private island, just three kilometres to the east of the Coromandel Peninsula and easily accessed via a short, 15 minute water taxi ride from Tairua or Pauanui.
“It’s a taste of a kiwi island paradise with two room luxury tents just a few steps from a beautiful, white sand beach with sensational views over the ocean.”
If you’re stuck for a gift idea – a glamping voucher is not going to disappoint. The sites Liz and Sonia offer at www.Canopycamping.co.nz cover the country, are exclusive to their site and each location offers a unique experience.
