The White Wabbit is a tiny retro (1940s) Teardrop caravan located in our "Secret Garden" just 200 metres from the Blenheim town centre. Best described as "a double-bed on wheels", The White Wabbit sleeps two adults.
Note - we really mean "tiny"!

The space

The White Wabbit is a tiny retro (1940s) Teardrop caravan located in our "Secret Garden" just 200 metres from the Blenheim town centre. Best described as "a double-bed on wheels", The White Wabbit sleeps two adults.

We are an easy walk from all the main Blenheim restaurants and bars.

There is a small kitchenette accessible from the outside by raising the rear hatch - ideal for a quick cup of tea or coffee. Bathroom and toilet facilities are in the main house and easily accessed.

The White Wabbit is great for a quirky and romantic overnight getaway, or make a longer stay and explore the many delights of New Zealand's largest wine region.

Important Note: when we say "Double Bed on Wheels" and "tiny" we really mean it! The White Wabbit is quite small and has no heating or air conditioning. Apart from the bed all facilities are outside the caravan.

Guest access

* Private garden
* bathroom/toilet in the main house
* small kitchenette - great for making cups of tea and light meals

Interaction with guests

We will interact with guests entirely at their discretion; guests are more than welcome to join us in the garden or in the house for a cup of tea or relaxing glass of wine.

Other things to note

Our garden is home to Tea In a Secret Garden - a classic NZ High Tea for Two - which can be provided to guests with 24 hours notice.

We provide sandwiches, small savouries, scones and homemade jam with whipped cream, chocolate eclairs and a "cake-of-the-day", along with unlimited pots of tea and personal service from our Kiwi Butler. There is a selection of teas, both imported from Paris and our own private blends. All food is "homemade" and the cost is $35 per head. It also comes with a Tea Talk - a brief history and social commentary about Tea.

If you would like to book just include the option in your enquiry, and we will pencil you in.

Peter and Heather are excellent hosts and couldn't have been kinder. The location is ideal - just what we were looking for. The caravan is comfortable and cute. All expectations were met or surpassed. We booked for 6 nights, which we knew might be a challenge in such small accommodation, and it was a bit too long. No fault of the hosts, just through the nature of the accommodation, I would advise against long stays. Lots to see and do in and around Blenheim. New Zealand was a revelation and we will be back!

We had a fantastic 3 night stay staying with Heather and Peter. We were made to feel very welcome and really enjoyed spending lots of time outside in this really unique accommodation. Heather and Peter were the perfect hosts and really made our stay exceptional. We would happily recommend staying to all our friends and family looking for a quirky experience. Thanks for having us!

Lovely couple! We really enjoyed their company and they were extremely helpful, however the place is quite literally a bed on wheels so make sure you read the description.

Charming little camper in the middle of an absolutely whimsical backyard and garden. Thoroughly enjoyed my night here. Everything I needed was set up and ready to go, Peter was a great host.

Lovely little house amongst the trees and yet so close to the main part of town.

It was wonderful staying in the little white wabbit! We got in after sundown and Peter still showed us around. We slept like logs in the cost caravan! They were wonderful hosts and even served is tea in the am even though we had everything we needed at the caravan. They were so sweet and accommodating and the space is magical. I hope to come back again soon!
