Eco friendly and sustainable but not sustainable to stay in! Toilets and kitchen always dirty and outside shower facilities didn’t lock nor were hot. No cutlery in kitchen or microwave or oven. Outside kitchen not well placed as gas hobs don’t work on windy days.

Instructor didn’t turn up to yoga class so was told to just wait for the next one the day after. Surf instructor was lovely but left without us to the beach and gave us very little instruction for an 85$ lesson!

Over all do not rate this accommodation and would not recommend.

Gorgeous place, gorgeous people. Stayed in a motorhome on NYE. Very busy, parked in a car park spot; lots of trouble getting in and out due to too many cars parked in the driveway etc. Staff very friendly. Amazing cafe, try the iced coffee and the vegan pizza! Great facilities - large equipped kitchen, fridges, hot showers, enough toilets for everyone. 20 minute walk to beach down a steep hill. Would come back but not in a motorhome - loads of other great accomodation options but they were fully booked.

$20 per person (van power or unpowered), it's just a car park space, no grass or space for your chairs. Beautiful terrace. Showers with low pressure. Kitchen dirty and busy all the time because it's small. Free Wifi in reception.

Was my first time to try surfing but it was so much fun, one thing everyone should try while in New Zealand.

Lovely place, really quirky and interesting to walk around because of all the different places to stay. The facilities were all really clean. I particularly liked the fire in the kitchen/lounge area. However, as some other reviewers have mentioned the campervan spaces are in the car park. Seeing as they'd put so much thought into all the other areas I think it'd be nice to have a nice space for the vans. On the plus side the view over the bay is stunning!

You can stay in tipis or in recycled railway carriages. The view is beautiful and a lot of activities. Surfing lessons, yoga, massage......
