The most authentic New Zealand experience we had so far. Small, but very cosy place. Facilities are clean and looked after. Owner is around and gave valuable advice.

This is best value out, lovely owners and helpful man on site. Quirky facilities but everything you need in kitchen, clean and free hot shower. Close to the road but by 6pm the road was quiet all night. Couldn't fault this place, not many pitches so advise booking ahead.

Very nice place! The owner is very friendly and all facilities are cleaned. Cutest place on the west coast.

We were lucky to find this gem whilst travelling along the West coast. Amazing value for money, welcoming and friendly owners, super clean kitchen and hot shower facilities. Unique and cosy decor, it feels like a home away from home! Do not miss!

Do stop here! We stayed here one night mid-December and so happy we did. It's really good value for money (just 10 dollars per person for tent/campervan, 20 dollars for a bunk bed and 45 dollars for a double room!) You get a fully equipped kitchen (with gas stove), hot shower and toilet. The place looks super cute and welcoming: you can sit down in the kitchen or veranda to relax or eat. Owners are really friendly too :) Don't miss this one!

I spent two nights here. It’s a lovely place. It’s clean. It’s value for money and so much time and effort has gone into making this place such a nice place to stay.

What a perfect place to stop before heading further south. $10 pp for power, shower, toilet and kitchen and all super clean! Do Do Do stop here for the night! When the traffic is low the silence is amazing. We had no reception on our phone, so nice! Upon arrival, be ready to stop when you see the sign. The village is small with only 6 inhabitants.

At this very small campsite you really get value for money. For $10 per person, you get a hot shower, clean toilet and cosy kitchen facilities. Great stop before heading to the glacier.
