Where Are We?

Valley Views Glamping is located approximately mid-way between Christchurch and Queenstown on the foothills of Mount Domett in the Waitaki Valley. We are close to the 'Alps to Ocean' cycle trail which runs from New Zealand's highest mountain, Aoraki/Mt Cook, to the Victorian town of Oamaru on the East Coast. Kurow, our nearest township is thirteen kilometres from our Valley Views Glamping site.

Our Facilities

At our eco-friendly 'glampsite' you can still enjoy your much loved creature comforts while staying among the hills. Solar energy powers our purpose-built lodge which has kitchen, dining and bathroom facilities. Immediately outside the lodge we have two outdoor dining areas and a communal fire-pit. A highlight of the lodge has proven to be the wonderful pot-belly fire which provides a wonderful ambience. And for a completely amazing experience there are four outdoor baths in our forest where you can relax in hot water and gaze at our extraordinary night sky. The site is designed thoughtfully with a focus on ongoing sustainable practices.

A Unique And Luxurious Way To Camp

With Valley Views, you really do get the best of both worlds. We offer delicious home-style meals, as well as self-catering facilities if you prefer. You’ll enjoy the comfort and warmth of a luxury tent or cabin in a king-size bed with beautiful down duvets, and stunning views of one of the hidden gems of New Zealand’s South Island. Absolutely perfect for a romantic getaway, or a relaxing weekend; we’re sure that once you arrive, you’ll never want to leave!

Testimonials

This place is a wee slice of heaven set on a hill. It won’t disappoint. Tents are 5 star luxury, beds are delish, communal facilities are well laid out and very up market. If you want stunning scenery, great hosts and a bath in the forest looking at the stars this place is worth the diversion.

The whole experience was like none other. After a two week road tripping around the South Island this was the perfect two nights to wrap up our New Zealand trip. Amber and Patrick were so friendly, kind and helpful. They made a conscious effort to make sure we were enjoying our stay and the home cooked meal option was delicious. We loved being able to chat and learn all about the area as well as their story. Such a great couple! The tent itself was incredible, each night we went to sleep and watched the sunset from our bed and the moon rise up above - completely surreal. The geodesic dome tents are stylish, comfy and unlike anywhere else we have stayed. Given the opportunity - use the outdoor baths!! We loved them so much we had more than one a day, it’s so peaceful and the scenery is beautiful. All in all, this glamping place is a 12/10. You can feel the love and effort that has gone into it and if you’re looking for the perfect getaway and experience - this is it.

Exceeded our expectations. As soon as I arrived I regretted not booking another night - what an amazing place. We stayed in a super king tent which was very spacious and had its own fireplace. Such a fantastic atmosphere sitting in the geo dome with the fire crackling as the sun sets over the mountains, viewable from the tent. What surprised me most was the quality of the shared facilities, being the bathrooms and lodge which has the kitchen and dining room. Other “glamping” locations may go cheap here as they are just facilities that they need to provide for people staying in tents, however the lodge itself is an awesome place to relax and has been designed and styled to provide a perfect atmosphere. We also booked the home cooked 3 course dinner made by Amber, which was delicious - would definitely recommend booking that in. The entire property is off the grid, eco friendly and self sufficient, which compliments the glamping experience. Couldn’t speak more highly of Amber and Patrick they were amazing hosts and spared no effort to make us feel at home and have a chat and provide local advice on what to see and do in the South Island. If you are considering staying here just make the booking, it is an incredibly relaxing and unique experience.

Our alps to ocean cycle crew of 15 had the pleasure of staying here on our last night and absolutely loved it! the hospitality, accommodation and surroundings are absolutely stunning and we can't wait to come back!! Having a bath in the forest at sunset was a highlight Thank you Amber and Patrick!

If I could give Amber and Patrick 10 million stars, I would. From flexibility with planning to the stay at this unique accommodation, we felt comfortable and treated so kindly. Amber made it possible for our group of four to come to her home where the family has set up an unbelievable glamping campsite with the perfect view. I actually teared up when she gave us a tour of our home for the next two days, and when it was over, we didn't want to leave. We felt like we had known the family for years and every last detail had been thought of. We were able to rest and enjoy the peacefulness and beauty that their property has to offer. If you're lucky enough to stay here and meet these people, cherish every moment. The property and accommodation reflects the people: warm, unique, joyful, and peaceful. I am so grateful for our stay here and hope to stay in touch with amber and Patrick for a long time.
