For a mid winter experience,we had a great time and thought the menu at the restaurant bar ( the Penguin) at the end of the park was great. But most of all we want to acknowledge the management, Brent and Dell, who were friendly, efficient and totally likeable . We unfortunately suffered a fire in our caravan, which reduced our... More

Went to the holiday park in the middle of winter, with torrential rain. Receptionist was warm and friendly. While showers were coin operated, the receptionist gave us some coins to cover the cost, which was a nice gesture. Cabin, toilets and kitched were all spotless and modern, with nothing to complain about. Location is just unbeatable though - the whole... More

we had a self contained beachside unit. Small but very adequate. Good camp store. Also handy to restaurants and cafes. Swimming was a bit limited by tide conditions. Quite a large camp park. Vary well kept.

Great to hear you enjoyed your stay and our hospitality, the girls in the reception really enjoy there work and it shows. pleased you were able to use the Pohara store, cafes and restaurant. The Sea would have been a little chilly at the moment for a swim but I'm sure you enjoyed Pohara Beach all the same. Thank you... More

We paid extra for the beach side location. No direct view of the beach but large plot and very easy access to the beach. 50c charge for showers, but it was well worth the price. Good laundry facilities with on site shop and scrumptious fish and chips!

Thank you for your great review and glad you found everything to your liking. Yes being Beachside certainly makes for easy beach access as you found. We have undertaken extensive upgrades over the years which have resulted in great facilities. Thanks very much for staying and enjoying what we have to offer. More

not sure why you have to pay a premium for pitches near the sea as the is no view just a high hedge. Good facilities including a shop and take away. The fish and chips is recommended. Be warned no beach at high tide and once the sea recedes it goes for miles so no realistic hope of a swim... More

Thank you so much for your review and choosing one of our premium Beachside sites which are larger and extremely sheltered. Guests are given an option of sites and find sleeping next to the Beach in a sheltered position delightful. The tides come and go with hours of potential swim time available, where the incoming tide crosses the hot sand... More

This is a good place to stay if you're visiting Golden Bay, it's right on the beach front and is only a short drive to the township of Takaka in one direction or the Abel Tasman National Park in the other. I have a powered site in section 'C' which is on the beachfront but unfortunately only a very few... More

One of the best top 10 holiday parks we have stayed in. Facilities are great and very clean. We stayed in cabins which were excellent. Booked for 1 night but stars for 3! Beach setting is amazing and espresso boat in local Harbour is worth a visit. Highly recommended!
