“Nice and Peaceful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

I stayed in a self contained unit for two days while up in the Far North for 2 days work. I had a great stay and it was very tidy, clean and comfortable. Really nice with it being well off the road (quiet and secure). Many thanks to the fantatsic owner/s who were always very helpful, even with someone who didn't know to plug the aerial into the tv (Many thanks Sandy). Many thanks for a great stay. I will be back. Cheers, Chris

Stayed in a camper van for three nights. Lovely grounds close to the bottom end of 90 mile beach.
Facilities were quite good. The kitchen had lots of pots and pans and crockery and there is a large reception area with a massive wooden dining table plugs other seating areas. Comfy sofas at the TV end. Though it got quite cold in there in the evening. Bathroom could do with having more than one working bulb.
Staff were very friendly. My stay was only marred by the theft of my camera.

I stayed for one night in April as an en route stop over rather than a 'destination.

The self contained cabin was comfortable & clean and had a comfortable bed/ sitting area with adequate self catering facilities. My only gripe would be that whilst the bedroom/lounge/kitchen area was spacious enough, the bathroom could do with being bigger - it had a tiny washbasin. Some of the lounge space could have been better utilised by giving the bathroom another metre of width. This really didn't detract from a relaxing stop over after a very long days drive.

Eating out options within a 5 minute drive are severely limited - a take away fish & chip/ pie shop is the only option - I believe that there is a restaurant a little further away.

I traveled north for a tour to Cape Reinga. Didn't like the looks of anything in Kataia so drove to Ahipara. Stumbled upon the Holiday Park and was very pleased. Booked a regular dorm room which had one set of bunk beds and an en-suite bathroom. It was very clean and attached to the kitchen. The room was small but very comfortable. I only stayed for a night but I would definitely recommend it. The gates close at 9pm but you can get a gate key for a deposit if you are staying out later.

The campground itself is at the end of town and about 5-10 min walk to the start of ninety mile beach. The campsite is well set out and has clean facilities. Free internet and bbq's were put to use and appreciated. We stayed just for the night and set off first thing. Nice spot for a stopover and the staff were friendly.

We ended up at the Ahipara Holiday Park because there were no rooms available in Kaitaia. This place was recommended to us by a full hotel owner in Kaitaia. He even called them to make sure they had a place for us. When we got there we had an adorable little cabin waiting for us. The owners were really nice and we felt completely comfortable there. Beautifully kept grounds were quiet and we could hear the beach from our cabin. Off the beaten path but worth the drive!

Friendly attentive staff, clean, comfortable bed, excellent rates and very close to Ninety Mile Beach 5 minute walk. Thoroughly recommend staying at this hideaway in the sun at the Gateway to Ninety Mile Beach.
