We drive the length and breadth of New Zealand in our motorhome, visiting our Okay2stay hosts, updating their listings, and finding new hosts to add to the network.
We stay at their vineyards, olive groves, rural cafes, berry farms and other enterprises, renew acquaintances and friendships, and buy great wines, beers, oils and yummy foods.
The happiness of our hosts as well as our members is very important to us. We support our hosts by visiting them regularly, publishing a common sense Code of Conduct for members to follow and ensuring our hosts and members have an enjoyable experience.
We love to hear from our members and hosts about their experiences and about the new friendships they have forged.
We didn’t think up this idea all on our own. In 2012 we hired an RV in the United States and joined an organisation called Harvest Hosts. This enabled us to park overnight at wineries, berry farms, lavender farms – and even a date farm in an oasis on the edge of Death Valley. These overnight stays were really memorable and we wanted to bring the concept back here to New Zealand.
We just finished a 3 week tour of New Zealand with a camper van and would like to thank you for Okay2stay which we used several times. It saved us money and had us in some great overnight stop overs. I am glad I came across you!
Just to say a great big thank you for your excellent Okay2stay experience. With our Maui motorhome we stayed at many of your overnight halts. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. I have already recommended you to some friends currently travelling around NZ. We hope to return one day.
We stayed at 5 Okay2stay sites, had a great experience and were made to feel very welcome. We would definitely use Okay2stay again and recommend it. Thank you to all of our hosts for helping to make our first trip to NZ a great one.
