Amazing Geodesic Dome in New Zealand

This post contains affiliate links.

Donna and her husband will take over her parent’s farm someday, and in the interim, they’ve set up a lovely geodesic dome vacation home for guests to enjoy a romantic getaway. It allows them to bring in some extra income while Donna is at home with her young children (and going back to work wouldn’t cover daycare expenses).

The dome sits on the Mangora River in New Zealand, and has all the comforts of home — a King-sized bed, a wood-burning stove, a kitchen with a two-burner cooktop, and a bathroom with a shower. Take a tour of the space and hear from Donna about the construction of the cabin below!

  • Donna had young children at home and wanted a way to bring in some additional income, so she decided to transform some space on her parent’s farm into an Airbnb.
  • The space began with a bell tent and the kitchen/bathroom tiny house, but they later upgraded to the awesome dome.
  • It only took them two days to build the dome!
  • There’s an outdoor tub for a “hot tub” experience on a budget.
  • A fire pit with an old boat sticking out from the ground is a fun addition to the space.
