Canvas Hut is just ten minutes from Pukekohe township and one hour from Auckland.
The hut sits on an elevated hilltop, with scenic views overlooking rural Franklin, the Waikato River to the Waikato River mouth and the Tasman Sea. The foreground features beautiful rolling hills with breathtaking views of patchwork fields. It overlooks native bush and farmland with plenty of cows in the paddocks and birdlife flying by.
Set up for couples in mind, the hut consists of a generous bedroom area with a roomy ensuite and small kitchenette to the rear of the hut. The space is beautifully decorated, with a serene and restful feel. A carefully crafted and quirky outdoor area, with a beautiful outdoor bath, provides a place to soak and take in the views and sunset in the evening.
There is an array of birdlife to enjoy while just sitting on the deck! Kererus, fantails, kingfisher, tuis, pukeko, herons, plovers, magpies, pheasants and quails are all visitors to the property. A walk through the native bush on the property is a good way to enjoy the local flora and fauna.
Canvas Hut is all about rest and rejuvenation. If you just feel like chilling out at the campsite there is a fantastic outdoor area to enjoy while you ponder the fabulous farmland view of patchwork valleys and fields, the Waikato River and Port Waikato Heads. Soak in the outdoor bath with a good book, or battle it out over a game - you'll find a selection of indoor and outdoor games at the hut.
At just an hour from Auckland city, you'll be sitting with your feet up, a glass of wine in hand, watching a peaceful sunset before you know it.
