There is an amazing cafe in town doing lovely coffee, snacks and meals . Orepuki Tavern that also does meals has shower/toilet and washing machine/drying facilities. Orepuki hall 1 minute drive away also has toilet facilities. Gypsy Gem is parked up on an acre section behind a secluded mound with full privacy from the road and surrounding properties there are 2 double beds the luton one above the cab for those that don't mind the enclosed feeling with steps for ease of entry. Or the couch area at back, slides out to make a double bed Linen and pillows, blankets provided. Even though you could sleep four it would be a squeeze to move around 2 adults and a child would probably be ok. But it is more designed for a couple or single. There is a table for two, some cards, a backgammon board, some books. A gas double burner with grill cooker,kettle, pots, pans,cups and cutlery provided. There is a chilly bin in the pantry that is not plugged into anything but keeps my milk and cheeses etc well for 2 days even in the 30 degree heats we have been having. You are welcome to bring ice if you wish for it to be cooler it holds a 1 litre bottle of milk,a bottle of wine, some beers or mixers and cheeses etc. Gypsy Gem has no power but does have solar lights the one in the kitchen area will go all night if needed not the brightest but still workable. The larger one above the table is bright for 2 to 3 hours and then slowly starts to dim. There are candles but please be very careful with them. The candles with lids are for outside use only. There is a hand pump tap for cold water for filling kettle, cooking, washing etc. There is a fire and if you are careful and know fires then you are welcome to use it if it gets cooler there is wood etc available. There is an outside table the chairs can be wobbly so please use caution and common sense. There is a wooden base that can be used as a day bed. There are two sun loungers/chairs in Gems cab along with a sun umbrella, Please put them away after use as it is coastal and the weather can change quickly at times. Also in cab is a petanque set welcome to use,frisbee welcome to take to the beach which is 3 minute drive or 15 minute stroll down mullans rd. There is also a dug out area where you can have a wee bonfire if there is no fire ban in place if you wish. I have a charging device that will charge 5 cell phones from flat or two phones and use it as a speaker it also has a torch which can be left for use if needed Animals are welcome, Horses please bring your own supplement feed but there will be water and paddock room for two. Dogs are welcome there are chooks on the property which can be put in their run but dogs should still be stock friendly please and please pick up after them. There is a cat door if needed. If chooks are laying and eggs are in the run please help yourself. Currently there is only a portaloo outside on the property but the tavern and hall which is only 1 minute drive 5 minute quick walk down the rd both have toilet /washing facilities. Thank you for viewing Gypsy gem and know that your stay will be a tranquil and pleasant experience
Please use common sense when dealing with fire/gas etc . It is a Housetruck/small space please be careful Pets are welcome just please clean up after them
