I Loved this place so much. Really enjoyed hanging out with the other van lifers who have been there a wee while. Parked up in the yard. Can’t see the beach from there but it is a 30 second walk away. Hot shower, picnic table, accessible toilet. Great neighbourhood. 3 min walk to the beach shops. No booking is needed. Just show up. First in first served but there should be space. If the owner isn’t home her cell number is on the sliding door. She is lovely.

Found this place at the last minute and so glad I did! Laurelle charges a TINY price to park on her lawn, just a minute's walk from the beach and five minutes from shops. She provides access to a toilet, hot shower, water and there's even a power cable if you need it. The perfect place to just chill and do your own thing! Will definitely be back!

Basically a paid parking on (nice) private property. Best value for money so far in New Zealand! $15 to park our van for the night with power outlet and hot shower just a few steps from the ocean. The host was very kind and friendly and facilities were super clean. Highly recommended.

Loreen is a fabulous host! Place is super nice and clean. 15$ for 2 a night with hot shower and she can provide power as well. Forget about the pricey holidays parks, we had great time here!

Best value for money anywhere in NZ.
Laurell was very welcoming and kind, great hot shower & toilet.
Also about 50m from the beach. Can’t go wrong here.

Don't be sceptical! This place is small but amazing. A nice place to park our car to sleep in, a bathroom, shower, and she even allowed us to charge some things inside. Only $15 for two of us and the beach is just a walk across the street between two houses! The lady is wonderful and very friendly! Definetly better then any “Top Ten“ Holiday Park, if you just want some piece and quiet to sleep in your car.

Brilliant spot, close to beach, excellent facilities, friendly welcoming hosts. Travelled a lot around N Z and this has to be in the top few spots!
