The Bay of Islands Holiday Park set in 4.2 hectares of beautiful grounds just 1.2km (10 min walk) from the center of Paihia township. Friendly owners welcomed us and a clean, warm and modern wheelchair accessible apartment with roll in shower became our home for three relaxing days. Guest facilities were outstanding - we really appreciated the free WiFi, the... More

Thank you for the great review, we appreciate it. We enjoyed meeting you and your wife, as well as your 2 friendly collie dogs. For future guests I would like to clarify our facilities - Unfortunately we do not have a swimming pool, flying fox, pool table or large communal TV facilities here. Our Apartments do have Sky TV however.... More

The whole complex is kept in an immaculate state. The cabin we stayed in for three nights was truely delightful and outstanding value. The whole experience was faultless and we were delighted we found this gem in an area well known for its beauty and awesome tourist sites. Strongly recommend the cabins that are set amongst the bush with fabulous... More

Our studio apartment was the perfect place for us to relax for the weekend; from having breakfast on the apartment deck looking out at the lush bush-clad setting to the super comfy large bed, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Check-in was smooth and friendly, there is free wifi that somehow reaches across the property! The spa is just idyllic... More

Visited 6th and 7th February. Lovely site. Very near treaty grounds and ferry to Russell. Excellent showers and facilities however a hairdryer in the showers would be useful. Very helpful staff. Loved the ducks and chicks waddling across from the pond.

We were rapt when we were shown our apartment with amazing views and bush clad surroundings. Felt like we were sleeping in the tree tops! And then we found the spa in the trees where we spent the evening under the stars with an owl swooping through the trees above us! Absolute Magic. We loved it so much and were... More

Large pitches and tall trees made this amongst the best sites we stayed at. Plenty of bird life on the park and on the river. Facilities not a good as many we stayed at and the men's urinals were out of action throughout our stay. Was however cheapest pitch price of our stay.

Stayed in a studio apartment. Check-in was friendly and thorough, papers to sign and maps to look at, the host was also very good in explaning the layout of the property and the town, as well as giving instructions on using the apartment, including free WiFi. Apartment is huge! The sleeping area has a queen size bed, good beddings, four... More

We stayed two nights here. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Location was great allowing us to walk into Paihai and explore then catch the ferry to Russell. Also only minutes from Waitangi treaty grounds. Shower and toilets kept tidy. Place for washing dishes wax also provided so we didn't have to use our camper van water. Definitely recommend this place

This is a nice campground. Clean bathrooms and sites. The wifi is free but you have to get a voucher from the staff every time you run out of data. We stayed four nights and needed to do this four different times. Showers are $2 and there is no separate indoor kitchen facilities for campers. The only cooking area is... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our site, we appreciate it. We have owned the site for just over a year, and are aware of the demand for a full service kitchen to supplement the facilities in most campervans and our BBQ's - and plan to do that. We do mention to guests arriving that we don't currently... More
