“Willis” a fun and funky 1940's handmade caravan situated on a platform with views over Tryphena harbour on the unique island of Aotea (Great Barrier Island) Willis has been lovingly restored with retro kitchenware; a Bluetooth compatible restored valve radio; a retro Smeg fridge and classic American style booth seating. 3 minutes drive from the Village with shops, cafe, pub, club and tennis court
Willis is nestled in regenerating bush with plenty of fishing, biking and hiking opportunities.

“Willis” is named after her creator Arnie Willis who handcrafted her in his backyard in the 1940's. Originally built of plywood, she was re-clad in aluminium later in life. We have made every endeavour to keep Willis as close to her original state as possible, while having 21st century luxuries.

The elevated unique glamping caravan is nestled amongst native bush, surrounded by bird song, stunning sea views and clear dark night skies. Private and quiet, it's a complete escape from everyday life. Tastefully decorated, this unique accommodation has been designed with a retro interior theme. Willis has all the facilities you require including luxurious towels, fully equipped cooking and eating equipment including a gas hob, tea, coffee and milk. Vintage wool blankets and warm luxurious bedding will keep you cosy at night.

Step outside to use the adjacent private eco-friendly bathroom, equipped with a flush toilet and hot shower. Soak up the serenity of the bush, with surround windows whilst you shower! Outside, the deck has everything you need to enjoy outdoor living. Enjoy the views of the bay or the stars at night in our comfortable deck chairs or cooking dinner on our state of the art barbeque.
Although we recommend you switching off and immersing yourself in nature, Wi-Fi is available at Willis. Cell phone coverage is limited, but our location does have a good amount of 4G connectivity available for some.
This is the ideal place for a couple, friends or an individual to get away from the hustle of daily life and use as a base to explore and have an authentic Aotea adventure. The quirky space would also be perfect for writers or artists wanting a private space to write novels, paint or draw.
Great Barrier Island (Aotea) boasts stunning white sand beaches, natural hot pools, beautiful and advenurous treks of all grades.
Dolphins can often be spotted in the bay below Willis.
There is a tennis court which is open to the public at the Barrier Social Club
