This place is absolutely amazing. The spot by the beach is gorgeous, you can hear the waves by night. Moreover the owners really put effort on bringing that place up to a next level of camping, and add-on plenty of little things in the camping and the facilities which make that place really special. The kitchen, living room and bathroom are very fonctionnel (like having room for putting your belongings while you are having a shower for exemple) and places are decorated with taste. It's perfectly clean. The owners are really good host. Highly recommend.
$50 per night non-powered for 2 adults, a 3 year old and an infant.
So nice that we spent 2 nights.
The non-powered sites are right at the top of the beach so if you're brave and carefull you can get your campervan nicely postioned to take full enjoyment of it. The sunrise is absolutely stunning from this location.
Decent facilities, a bit old however they give it a good clean daily. Nice playground for kids and a decent little camp shop on site.
We stayed in a non-powered site with our dog (he had to be on a lead at all times but he was happy to be tied up under a tree when we were at our site). We had the option of staying on a beachfront site but had heard from a number of people that it can get very windy so we chose a site near the trees. Friendly staff and clean amenities. The only thing that detracted from this campground was the amount of trains and trucks (engine braking) going past (100km road) and aeroplanes flying over (whale watch tour operators is next door). So at times you felt you could barely hear the beach due to the traffic. The road noise continued during the night. We went for a hike up the the summit of Mt Fyffe which was great and only took 6hrs return (2hrs quicker than suggested). Lots of nearby things to do and Kaikoura is only 5min drive away.
Nice campsite with great facilities that are regularly cleaned. Showers don't require coins and had good pressure. We stayed there on our way down and when we returned again. Beautiful beach with great waves for surfing. Saw some dolphins there too. The unpowered seaview site is very exposed to wind, and the sand is soft, so make sure that you have big pegs if you are planning on tenting.
Paid extra for ‘beach front’ and instead we’re 3rd row back from the beach with campervans blocking any possible view of the sea. Specifically requested as close to the beach as possible, checked in by just after 2 and were still plenty of actual beach front spots available but were told they’d already been allocated. Dissapointing, don’t bother paying more for powered sea front site.
VERY clean facilities and really friendly people. Great water pressure on the showers and no coins required!. Would come back again for sure
Extremely friendly and relaxed staff. Welcomed us after sundown and was very helpful. Facilities are good. Had a nice unpowered spot right by the beach. Showers were good, although a little tricky with the start/stop outside the cubicle.
We absolutely loved our stay! In fact, it was so good we stayed a second night on our way to Havelock, and stopped again on the way home. The views are stunning and watching the dolphins frolicking was a highlight. The facilities are very clean, and the staff helpful and friendly. We’ll definitely be back!
