A place of good intentions, welcoming and friendly staff, and beautiful surroundings. I spent 3 nights in a 3 bed caboose.There is a spacious kitchen and lounge area with clean bathroom facilities. Cafe is an inviting place to lounge and enjoy a snack. I enjoyed the self guided Eco tour around the property. Thanks for the sweet escape, I hope... More

We stayed in a caboose made out of a train carriage. It was so cosy! The weather was mad while we were there and it felt so cosy hearing the rain hitting the roof and being in a small unit separate from anyone else. The bed was the comfiest we've had in NZ so far and we both slept like... More

took the batch on the basis it was marketed as luxury. At best it was average. There appeared to be a lack of attention to detail.. No shower gel/shampoo no milk in the fridge and the lighting was definitely inadequate for anyone wanting to read . The bed was great very comfortable and though we were a little concerned that...

We chose Solscape after a friend mentioned it. We explored the web site to look at options. We wanted a wee bit of luxuary but were curious about the Eco side of the business so chose the Eco-bach. We secured a winter deal pay 2 stay 3 this made it viable for us. We had everything we needed for 3... More

Rather quirky but nice Bunked here for 1 night whilst touring the area. (Wairēinga/Bridal Veil Falls are well worth a look if you are in the area.) Great location and views. Facilities pretty much what you would expect. Had a three bed Caboose all to my own. $27 for a night with YHA membership Would agree with the comment on... More

Online we had booked a Tipi tent site. When we arrived and checked in we recieved a suprise. The receptionist had told us we had just booked a tent site. What were we to do? We had no tent and no items to sleep in; fortunately for some reason we had our sleeping bags. Amazingly Solscape had a garage and... More

I have to say I was a little hesitant about staying here do to it's quirky look on line. When we arrived the view sucked me in and the idea of a cruisey laid back atmosphere was really what I was searching for. Check in was simple and the cost was was pretty adequate for the location and type of... More

Hillside accommodation arranged in separate cabooses (train carriages), offering yoga and surf lessons. Unfortunately the surf was a bit big for novices when we went, so we just spent the night there and left the next day. I imagine it would be a beautiful place to chill out in the summer months but it was a bit cold in the... More

We spent one night here with our campervan. We arrived mid-cyclone Lucy ( March 2014) but still absolutely loved the place. Decent enough facilities, staff very helpful and a nice little restaurant. Not too far from town either. Despite the weather, the view in the morning was spectacular as it began to clear, and would definitely return. Recommend both for... More

We stayed there only for 1 night, but we are definetely going back. We slept in one of the train carriages on top of the hill and it was so cozy. Bathrooms and kitchen were so close and the views at all times were impressive!!! Very helpful and professional staff. My husband even took a surf lesson with them. Great... More
