My partner and I stayed for one night at Wainamu and it was simply perfect! The site is lovely-an amazing tent with a comfy bed and lots of luxury linen and quilts, a simply incredible outdoor bath which is so idyllic at night under the stars, an open fire with hot plate for cooking, hammocks, and a very quaint cooking...

This place is amazing. Stay at least two nights. You won't regret it. It's such a special place you can't help but relax! Anna and Jim have thought of everything you might need - right down to freshly baked bread and free range eggs!

This place was absolutely perfect! The landscape/location alone is stunning but Jim and Anna have managed to take it to the next level with their incredible set up. The tent, outdoor kitchen and bathroom are filled with a million tiny thoughtful details which make everything extra special. Couldn't take the smiles off our faces from the moment we arrived. Jim...

I have been meaning to write this review for months, so apologize Anna and Jim!! Life long memories are made from spending time here. This was our second trip and like the first we felt like we were in paradise!! Every little detail is perfect and there really isn't any thing we could fault. Even in the rain we felt... More

My family stayed at Wainamu earlier this month and had an absolute ball there! It was only 24 hours...I would recommend staying longer. The setting was magnificent. You feel private and surrounded by nature, without feeling isolated. The place is a class act from start to finish, with everything you could need or want. Relaxing in the outdoor bath while...

We stayed a night at a Wainamu tent in February. The owners Jim and Anna are relatives of friends of our friend from Sydney who suggested we give it a shot - and we're so glad we did. This area is set in pretty amazing countryside not far from Te Henga (Bethells Beach which is a wonderful black sand beach... More

My husband and I stayed for one night just over a week ago. It was absolutely the most romantic place we have ever been to. The tent is beautifully decorated and the small touches and attention to detail made for truly luxurious and decadent getaway. We surfed down the black sand dunes, swam in the beautiful lake, ate our dinner... More

We had a 4 day family holiday here this summer and it was truly amazing! You feel a million miles away, it is so tranquil. Gorgeous walks to great swimming areas and the set up Jim and Anna have created is absolutely beautiful. Everything that you need has been thought about and the attention to detail is immaculate. The kids... More

Our day and night was outstanding. Truely gracious and inspiring hosts provide extra touches that make this experience magical. The setting is outstanding , the ever changing Bethells scenery never fails to inspire. Better than any five star we have stayed in. We live ten minutes up the road but will be back with the kids to give them this... More

We've enjoyed our family adventures at Wainamu in both May and February, and have stayed in 2 of the separate camping areas. The place is charming, the little touches are superb (from marshmallows ready to roast over the camp fire to freshly baked bread), and the environment allows for an opportunity to relax and enjoy. Blissful kiwiana camp style! There... More
