Very helpful host. We just missed out on a Kiwi spotting tour so they jacked us up with a DIY kit and we had a great time looking for them. No kiwi but we had a great time seeing other nocturnal animals and insects. The kids loved the flying fox. Clean amenities. Kim

This is a truly excellent holiday park. Great location beside a stream and native bush. The camp and units are well maintained, everything clean and tidy. Owner Chris took us on a night tour of Trounson Park Kauri reserve where to our delight we spotted a large female brown Kiwi. Chris is a very knowledgable and experienced guide and helped... More

We stayed for one night in a campervan, the owner was very friendly and helpful. There was plenty for the kids to do, they especially loved the flying fox and the glow worms. The holiday park was very well maintained and clean. We would have loved to do the guided night walk to see the kiwis, but unfortunately the weather... More

Easily the best campground we've stayed at in New Zealand. Wonderful, peaceful location between wooded hills and next to a stream, faultless amenities that are not just functional, but also nice to look at (beautiful wood is used around the wash basins), and everything was extremely well kept. What made this one of the highlights of our whole tour was... More

Stayed in a two-bedroom motel unit and really nothing to complain about. A bit short on kitchen bench space but full kitchen facilities. Pretty view of bush and lots of bird-life to watch from semi-private back deck. Rained during our mid-winter stay so didn't explore the stream and swimming hole but would like to come back in better weather. Small... More

Hi Sandra T Thank you so much for your review, and we certainly look forward to seeing you again in better weather. I take on board your point about the limited bench space in the kitchen, and have been giving some thought to that. My idea is that we could make a chopping board insert that sits in the sink...

We stayed here with our campervan and the stay was okay. Campground was clean and nice, kitchen was small but also clean with herb-garden, toilets and showers were also okay but in season you will have to wait till one is free. Not much alternatives in the neighbourhood if you want to stay in that area.

Hi Peetfum Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. I'm sorry you could only rate your stay as 'okay'. We always try to exceed our guests expectations so 'okay' makes us feel like we have let you down. I do wonder if you have mistaken our small outdoor kitchen for the main kitchen? Our main... More

We arrived late (10pm) after phoning ahead to let them know. The hosts left our key and info out for us, and switched on the light and heater in our unit ready for us (bliss on a very cold night).

I stayed there for a night on a tent-site. The staff members were very welcoming and helpful. The site is beautiful, you're in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by nature - you can even have a swim in the river going through the Park. The kitchen was well-equipped and clean and the shared-areas were very comfortable and spacious. The bathroom... More

The name of the place put our North American sensibilities off a little, but we knew we'd thoroughly enjoy this place as soon as we arrived.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Kauri Coast TOP 10 Holiday Park is Northlands premier west coast Holiday Park and is set on two beautiful hectares of parkland surrounded by native bush with river boundaries onn two sides. This is the perfect base from which to enjoy our spectacular kauri forests - it is just 5 km to Trounson Kauri Park and 30km to the Waipoua Forest, home of the legendary Tane Mahuta - the giant of the forest. Enjoy the rugged west coast beaches at Manganui Bluff, or visit the beautiful Kai Iwi Lakes (20 minutes south) with their crystal clear waters and sandy beaches. Kauri Coast TOP 10 Holiday Park has something for everyone, from our Park Cabins offering budget accommodation to our luxury Riverside Motel Units offering all the comforts of home in an idylic setting by the river. There are also large flat powered and non powered sites for tents, motor homes and caravans. Whatever your choice you can enjoy our communal facilities which include indoor and outdoor kitchens, a guest lounge with SKY tv, laundry, toilets and showers (no tokens or coins needed). Theres lots to do here for all the family - playgrounds, trampolines, flying fox, petanque court, basketball and table tennis, swimming holes and tubing in the rivers. Theres also lots of space to enjoy a quiet picnic or fish for trout. Join our famous Guided Night Forest Walk which departs from the Park around dusk and if you are lucky you may see a Kiwi in the wild - bookings essential. ... more   less
