The site was beautiful! So peaceful and the customer service was beyond our expectations. The owners were amazingly helpful and lovely. The property has a few farm animals and a sweet little park for kids to play on. Definitely our favourite campsite so far!

Excellent little spot, very well looked after and pretty much spotless. Worth the drive away from the crowds & Inland Kaikoura Rd is a pleasure itself. One of the best of the 20 camps stayed in on this tour!

We came back after 2 years. Time to renew the review: start to say: very very nice clean motor camp!
There is a totally new sanitary block for the women. 2 perfect showers and toilets.
Men can use the other sanitary. Maybe not that posh but super clean.
Kitchen perfect!
Let’s not forget the owners: nice, helpful..... and they may be proud of this place
