Shortlands Station is a high country sheep station at the base of the Kakanui Ranges, in the Danseys Pass corner of the Maniototo. It's less than 2 hours from Dunedin and just under 2 1/2 hours from Queenstown.
'Manuka Views' is one of two glamping 'sheds' on the property, along with sister shed, 'Nobbler Creek'. Manuka Views is set at the on the edge of a creek overlooking golden tussock hill country.
The design of Manuka Views is inspired by the classic corrugated iron farm buildings you see throughout New Zealand. It combines a stylish, covered, open-air kitchen and bathroom - with a luxurious and cosy enclosed bedroom and lounging space.
Guests will experience a stunning mountain vista, with 360-degree views of the surrounding high country. A cedar wood-fired hot tub sits in a prime position to take it all in while soaking in steaming hot, fresh mountain water. At night, the view of the night sky and stars is amazing.
Manuka Views is the ultimate, peaceful glamping retreat. Enjoy the tranquil sounds of the creek, the birds, and the unbelievable quiet - with the only interruption being the comforting sound of the odd sheep baaaing nearby.
