Visited Okuti during the off-season and can't wait until it opens up in a few months to truly experience the place- If you want to get away from the breakneck, high-octane pace of Christchurch, then look no further than this little slice of paradise, near Little River. James, Jane and Sol provide an altogether alternative and nurturing environment for the... More

Okuti Gardens offers a unique experience - peaceful, tranquil, beautiful. The yurts are brilliant - you'll have the best nights sleep! James and Jane have created a unique visiting experience, great for families, couples, or single travellers wanting something different. Thank you! We will be back!

We loved glamping at Okuti. Beautiful gardens and the kids thoroughly enjoyed it. Rail trail just down the road and Little River village is lovely. Clean and a wonderful experience. Loved the yurts! The kids loved the donkeys and there is a pond with a boat the children enjoyed. Will be back.

This place has a few individual and characterful places to sleep in comfort from yurts / tipees to vans. The outdoor areas and gardens are amazing with a great kitchen area and social parts. The outdoor heated bath was my favourite although the solar shower took some braving!

My wife and I stayed here for two nights and had a great time. Jim and Jane were very welcoming hosts and happily allowed us to spend one night in a yurt and the next night in the house-truck. We really enjoyed both nights and the chance to experience both types of accommodation. The atmosphere is relaxed and the tranquil... More

We stayed in a Tipi for 3 days during December 2012 (something I've allways wanted to). Everything about our stay was perfect from Jane meeting us at the bus, our Tipi, the gorgeous gardens, the resident animal hosts, the outdoor kitchen, the view through the tent flap in the morning, just picked strawberries to Jane dropping us off at the...

I stayed in the House Truck for one night while working in Christchurch in early October. Jane made me feel very at home and the whole place is just lovely. If you like the photo's of their place on Trip Advisor, you can't go wrong and you will have a fabulous time.

Wow, what a find. A really beautiful place, surrounded by nature. The owners make you feel very welcome. Great accommodation - we stayed in a yurt which was beautifully kitted out with luxurious bedding, candles, flowers etc - lots of thoughtful little touches. We were greeted on arrival by Nutmeg, the owners' friendly and playful dog. There are also some... More

Found this little gem on the internet whilst looking for alternative accomodation. I love finding funky eco accom and Okuti Garden did not disappoint. We stayed in Bronwyn the House Truck and she was fabulous! Had our own little deck overlooking the pond, complete with rowing boat. Jim and Jane were fantastic hosts, making us feel very welcome and inviting... More

A must have been there for a (eco-)tourist. A great place to be. We stayed the first night in the truck house and the next night in the Yurt. Everything so clean and very well taken car of. Perfect beds, solar heated shower and compost toilet. In the middle of beautifull nature.The owners are so friendly and made us feel... More
