Akaroa is an amazing little village, where the scenery and natural beauty will stop you in your tracks. This campsite has one of the best location and view in NZ. Perched above Akaroa, you get an amazing view of the village and peninsula. The site is a short walk from the village which is very handy. The site itself is...

We stayed in late November with a motorhome and the site was in great condition and did not appear to be that crowded. Motorhomes are on grassed sites and we certainly had plenty of room between neighbours. As with other people we had an outstanding view of the harbour and this really is the Ace in the hand for this...

Hi TonyG, We hope you enjoyed your trip from the UK, and we are pleased that you found our park good enough that you would like to return, and we hope you can. And yes we are in the process of getting new markings for the hot plates, should be done any day.

Absolutely a magical spot. We stayed on a powered site, with views of the township. Love that this holiday park sits high on a hill, because no matter were you may be placed while staying here, you get a view. Tidy, friendly, well set out. Would stay again in a heart beat.

Really quiet and pretty place to stay. The staff were very friendly and gave us anything we needed. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was very clean. Didn't expect so much considering what we paid

Hi Clair D, So nice to read reviews like yours, especially great for the staff who do present the park in a wonderful way which does, as you say, make for great value for money.

We stayed here one night as part our three week trip around New Zealand. We stayed in a basic small 'chalet' which had a fridge, small TV and a double bed and bunk bed (no duvet or blanket though). We had been hoping to cook our own meal but the kitchen contained no cooking equipment (pans or utensils) - the...

Hi Mikeedeedee, Thank you for the review, can I mention that very few camp kitchens in NZ provide utensils because they dissappear as fast as they are put in, so we provide the essentials at the office on arrival if requested.

Beautiful site, location wonderful. Facilities were outstanding. The staff were very friendly, courteous, knowledgeable.If you like walking this is the place to be, up over the mountains to another bay the other side. Plenty of other walks too. This was a Motorhome stay. I would give the site 10/10.

A lovely place to stay in Akaroa with an extremely friendly and helpful couple manning reception. The only criticism is that the kitchen could be updated (the ovens and hobs are pretty hopeless). It's one of the more expensive top 10 resorts so I would have expected better equipment. We still stayed 2 nights and had a great time however!

This was our "first time" at a Top 10 Holiday Park. Honestly we had no idea of what to expect. From the moment we arrived to the minute we left, my Fiancé and I were in awe of the supreme natural beauty of Akaroa. The views from our Studio Unit were phenomenal. Just a short 15 minute walk and you...

Hi Easteroadster, Kylee & Tracy will be very pleased to have their efforts recognised and appreciated, as you mentioned the aftermath of an earthquake can be an upsetting time. Fortunately we were too far away to suffer any damage, and we do hope you can return soon.

Great place to stay. Stranded in Canterbury after the earthquakes for a night decided to come down here. Perfect alternative. Friendly and accomodating staff. Beautiful view of the harbour. Very quiet get away. Loved it.

A very good campsite in a beautiful location. Very friendly and helpful staff, with good clean amenities. Choose a powered site with panoramic views over the harbour. A pleasant walk into town out the bottom of the campground.
