Great location, right on the waters edge of a sheltered bay complete with boat ramp for easy water access. Very peaceful site with noise restrictions to ensure it stays that way. Free unlimited WIFI. A short taxi ride (about $14) will get you into Paihia town. Good hot showers, great kitchen and BBQ area complete with herb garden.All areas well maintained and clean.

Awesome location , friendly host . Tucked away so no noise from the road . Spotless facilities only reason it’s not a 10 is because the BBQs weren’t working . Fast unlimited internet .

Everything was just perfect: new, neat and tidy, kitchen, showers, toilets, territory, prices. The beach is a mud on a low tide though, which was expected. The only thing they are quite strict on checkout time, 10am.

Typical Top 10 park. We stayed here one night on our way south. Felt the man on reception was a little sarcastic because we declined to pay extra for a site overlooking the mud flats (sorry, beach). Far too expensive compared to some other places we have used.

We loved it here. The facilities we're excellent, the view was amazing one morning we had mist everywhere and it was so cool. The powered sites with all very nice and surrounded by hedges so it felt very private. I would definitely recommend staying here. We had a lovely experience.

We ended up staying here for 3 nights. Perfect location on quiet private beach and our pitch was literally on the beach! Lovely staff, very clean and comfortable facilities. A walk along the coast path to Paihia town (an hour) but scenic walk. Went kayaking from the site, highly recommend. A little piece of paradise

Wir haben beachside Platz gewählt und es war richtig toll!! Man ist in 45 Minuten Fußweg in Paihia- der Weg führt direkt am Meer entlang und ist sehr schön. Die Duschen waren ok
.. Mehr aber auch nicht. Küche war auch ok.

Very nice site right on the river/coastal inlet. Really helpful lady on reception who organised a taxi for our trip in the bay of islands next day. Showers very good and plenty of FREE hot water. Laundry and kitchen facilities excellent. There’s also the bonus of food being available on the site if you don't fancy cooking. Only word of warning is that this is not really walkable to Paihia town although we did walk back one day along the coastal track but it takes about 1 hour! Loads of taxis if you want though and some restaurants pick up and drop of for free, obviously if you’re eating with them😀.

Great spot. Beautiful views! Nice, clean facilities. Good Wifi! We hired kayaks which were cheaper than the places to hire in town at $10 an hour. Would stay there again!
