"We just don't give our guests a place to stay... we help them create memories and adventure"
We are intergenerational farmers and our love of the land and the breathtaking views we wake up to each morning prompted us a couple of years ago to start to share our home initially through Airbnb.
We have met some amazing people, mostly visitors to New Zealand and enjoyed many conversations with people exploring our country for the first time. We then started advertising Soft Leaf Farmstay through booking.com and the other major platforms. It was a logical extension for us to offer glamping tents so that visitors could truly experience this little piece of paradise for themselves.
We attended the international glamping show in the UK over our winter in 2016 and began the process of sourcing the very best luxury tents available and building our glamping profile in New Zealand.
We welcomed our first glamping guests in December 2017 and have since hosted many couples for their wedding anniversaries, engagement celebrations, intimate birthdays and of course, family vacations. During 2019 we have started hosting larger family groups of up to 12 at our glampsite especially bridal parties and weddings.
As you will glean from this website, our vision is to build the icon of agri-tourism accommodation in the North Island of New Zealand, and we have many plans for providing bush walking experiences in the 240 acres of natural bush that extends to the Waikato river on our farm.
