Stay at Awaawa for a unique Waiheke Island. experience!

Why yurts? They are just amazing to sleep in. You are so close to nature and yet can sleep in fantastic luxury! The yurts are furnished with a queen bed, lounge chairs, a coffee maker and more to make your stay comfortable! In the summer it is great to have the roof open to gaze at the stars before falling asleep... In winter the yurts are heated and fully insulated – at one with nature.  Just one step away is your private bathroom including a rainforest shower and hand carved stone basin.  "Papa" is a spacious 5 metre yurt surrounded by beautiful sea views and olive trees.

This island haven is located within walking distance (12 minutes) to the stunning white sands of Palm Beach and a short drive to Oneroa village, award winning vineyards and restaurants including Mudbrick and Cable Bay. The supermarket, iconic Saturday farmers market, ferries, local cafes and shopping are all within a 5 to 10 minute drive of this lovely property.

We really enjoyed our stay - it was a very peaceful setting and we felt like we really got away from city stress. The yurt had everything we needed and was comfortable and beautiful.

Mary - Oct, 2022

Beautiful view and lovely space to enjoy waiheke.

Rebekah - Sep, 2022

Amazing, relaxing, beautiful!

Felix - Jul, 2022

Absolutely be-yurt-iful stay! Perfect little getaway for a wonderful long weekend on Waiheke. Really friendly & respectful hosts, the location was the right balance of being close enough to Oneroa & Onetangi by bike or bus, but still feeling really seluced & private. The yurt itself was the perfect balance of something a little different & feeling the love of the outdoors, but still the modern comforts you'd want on a trip away. Would 100% recommend staying for any couple, in fact our friends are already booked to come!

George - Apr, 2022

Great 3 night stay. Relaxing space, mod-cons but surrounded with beautiful views, native bush and bird life. The yurt felt spacious and comfortable. The bus stop is nearby to head to nearby Oneroa, Onetangi & Wineries. We had a car, which we were grateful for a 3 night/day stay but not essential for this location. Would recommend & would stay again

Miranda - Oct 2023

One of the coolest places we have stayed. Very cosy comfortable and special

Sophie - Nov 2023

10/10 would recommend. Beautiful getaway from the hustle and bustle. Very friendly and helpful host.

Peter - December 2023

Papa Yurt is a little hidden cocoon nestled in amongst lush greenery with a beautiful view expanding out towards the sea. A perfect peaceful space to escape to away from the hustle & bustle of our everday life. Watch the sunset from the deck or the comfort of your bed and if the weather is good to you open the roof to look at the stars on a clear night. Absolutely loved the whole experiece and would go back again.
