Nice spot near the sea. The camperspots are a good size. The facilities are clean. The staff is very friendly. We booked a trip with the watertaxi but due to fysical problems we had to cancel. No problem and we've got a full refund.

Fantastic location, not too expensive although we had to book activities to actually stay here which were quite costly. Calling the facilities mediocre is being very generous! Showers were awful, only 1 bbq for whole site and extremely basic kitchen. We spent a lot of our holiday queuing for showers and bbq. The reception desk for check in was chaotic,... More

My husband and I stayed in our caravan labour weekend 2015 and really loved the camp. It was quiet and with nice kitchen, laundry. There was a great little playground for the kids. We didnt mind paying for hot showers as it does stop people having long showers and wasting water. $1 for 6 mins was really good. The staff... More

The camp is well located, especially if you want to go kayaking or walking in the Abel Tasman National Park. Kitchen is big and well equipped. Amenities are clean. Hot shower for 1$ (about 6 minutes).

Stayed 3 nights there on a powered spot with our rented campervan. The place was busy but not overcrowded. We appreciated the shade on those warm sunny days. The amenities have seen better days, but were kept reasonably clean. Here we did not have to queue for a shower and considering the affordable fee charged for the site itself we... More

We love camping because you get away from the set-up of home, things feel relaxed so you can relax. This is how Marahau feels. Not perfect but relaxing. Thank you for a great stay. A central point for exploring the Abel Tasman.

Thanks for the positive comments and good overall score. We're glad you had a good stay with us. Just to clarify; the reason our showers are coin operated is that without some form of time limit, people seem to shower for incredibly long time periods and the waiting time for other guests is really long.

Facilities are a bit rundown. Showers have no pressure and even less when a tap is used. Kitchen and such are mediocre. Good playground for the kids. Right on the ocean and not far from the great walk make the location nice. An older lady staff member was absolutely shocking to my partner though when he asked for a park... More

I have spoken to the person who served your partner to get the other side of the story. Your partner asked for a map of the Abel Tasman National Park as he was under the impression he would be able to drive the Coastal Track. The staff member commented that unlike in a number of Australian national parks, it is... More

Very well placed for water taxis and walking some of the Abel Tasman track. Nice bistro/pub overlooking bay close by. Our site for motorhome quite spacious if threadbare. Need for more plug-in points so campervans don't park at funny angles, invading your space, to get plugged in. Showers, toilets, dump station etc. very much in need of modernisation. Despite its...

After an extremely anxious drive up and down a windy road (as first time going to Marahau) ... we were in awe of the beach when it came in view. Park is close to the beach - a bonus! Hot when we stayed – cabin sleep out for 6 with small kitchenette and front porch. No ventilation available, and no... More
