In Auckland, New Zealand


Come and stay in 'Claris', a famous Caravan here in NZ. A 1960s revamped girl, Claris is full of character, colour and is parked in our beautiful cottage garden. A cosy space for a single or couple, Claris provides a quintessential Kiwi experience

Claris is a rebuilt 10.4' Clipper Caravan that was saved from demolition on a north island farm 2 years ago. New Zealanders have a love for the little vintage/retro caravans that we used to use for our summer kiwi holidays in the 50s and 60s.Their simplicity and Fun represents the essence of a quintessential, wholesome break on our beaches and parks enjoyed by New Zealanders for years.

Claris has been fitted out to the highest standard, with all of this in mind, but just a little more luxurious! She is equipped with a bespoke kitchen, an underbench oven , gas stovetop and fridge.

The table drops down to become the roomy double bed and mattress and squabs are 150mm foam upholstered in a Macrosuede fabric in a beautiful delphinium blue shade. To complete the holiday feeling, a JVC surround sound system has also been included. Lighting is provided by the re-use of the original milk glass and chrome light fittings and the addition of chrome halogen spotlights for night reading.

The kitchen is outfitted with three full original Bakelite dinner sets in yellow, green and red. Many visits over the last few years to vintage markets have been the source of the vintage striped drinking glasses.

The cushions were specially made for Claris and they complement the orange and blue chevron-design throws from French Country Collection for wrapping around shoulders on chillier nights. The bed is dressed with Wallace Cotton sheets and pillowcases and original wool blankets featuring handcrafted blanket stitched edges.(Please note,the double bed whilst very wide is not suitable for really Tall people).

To have the opportunity to style Claris and bring her back to her former glory has been a delight and we hope you enjoy spending time enjoying New Zealand with cosy Claris.
Claris is a no smoking zone.
