We had a jucy campervan and the place was amazing. Very easy to get around. Beach access. Right around the corner from the stick sign. Across the street at night are the glow worm Dells. The facilities were well kept and clean. The kitchen even has more amenities such as pots and pans to borrow. Free wifi

We stayed one night here in a powered site on our road trip across the South Island. We arrived before the official check in time, but that was not an issue for the reception team who were friendly and helpful. The site itself is compact and clean and a short stroll to the beach and you can walk along it,...

I stayed one night in a beach front cabin, well equipped and comfy. And 1 min to beach, lovely to hear the sea as you go to Sleep . Bathroom was great and good heating when it's chilly, check- in was easy too .

This was our first time visiting the west coast, we stayed in the beachfront spa unit which was perfectly clean and maintained with a sneaky view of the beach. The spa was fantastic and the bed comfy. I was surprised how quiet it was considering our unit was attached to another. We made many trips to the beach from our...

We parked our caravan here for the second time. The campground is very close to the beach and about a minute from the township. The facilities are clean and well appointed. There are cabins on site for those who do not have their own campervan or caravan. If we do not take the caravan over that way again - we...

We stayed here on the first day of our Wilderness Trail bike trip. Tidy rooms, friendly staff and just a short stroll to the beach and the glow worm dell across the road. We stayed in one of the 2 story log cabins which would not be suitable for people with limited mobility. I imagine there would be other options.

Neat, compact establishment with good facilities and tidy grounds. Management a little non-plussed when all we needed was an un-powered site. On the beach, yes, but not a clean one.... just a short stroll to the north pours a massive effluent pipe (proudly, it seems) into the Tasman Sea..... A disgraceful, environmentally tragic eyesore. Avoid.

We stayed in one of their beachfront cabins, has a nifty loft where the bed is, and a living room and kitchen. The stairs are steep going up to the bedroom, so if you have trouble with stairs you might want to consider carefully. It was fine for us and great to be able to walk right onto the beach....

We stayed here in December 2015 and as per usual on the West Coast of the South Island, it rained and the sun shone (not all at the same time)! This didn't matter at all. The sea was angrily but not intrusively roaring at times; the unit was warm when it was cold and wet but the A/C worked just...
