We spent Easter weekend here for the Tauranga Jazz Festival. The facilities are spotless. Everyone is friendly. The beautiful beach is just across the road. It is handy for Tauranga as well as the Mount.

Wow what an amazing place Cosy Corner is. From is great facilities ie: pool, spa, games room kitchen shower /toilet are by far the cleanest and best we have ever come accross, and just general feel about the place. It must be the cleanest family park we have ever been to, and we have been to a many around New Zealand. Your hosts Gene and Becky go out of there way to make you feel truely at home, nothing is to big or to small them. All our family can say is if you are looking for a place to stay then "Cosy Corner" is the way. Thanks again to the amazing Team at Cosy Corner and we will be seeing you soon.

Mount Maunganui is an area very popular with New Zealanders who like to holiday at the beach. An excellent campsite, found by chance after an enforced delay in an area not on our itinerary, caused by a problem with the campervan requiring replacement. Very quiet when we were there, though we were told it was the 'lull before the storm' as it was fully-booked for the whole of the month of January by returning New Zealanders wanting a beach resort. Large, grassy, open-plan plots near facilities. All facilities were very clean, modern and of a high standard. Lovely large swimming pool and spa. Large kitchen, dining and covered recreation area, decorated for Christmas whilst we were there. Well equipped laundry and drying lines. The manager was very pleasant, extremely helpful and always hardworking around the site, as were his staff. He was very understanding with us, in that he knew our predicament re the van and allowed us to stay on the site well beyond the latest checkout time. There were a lot of permanent residents but everything was very neat and tidy and all in keeping with the pleasant layout of the site. Security entrance gates and wide, surfaced driveways. Adjacent to a park with children's playground and across the road to a track down to the long, wide and very clean sandy beach, and a sea with huge waves very popular with a huge number of surfers. A pleasant walk along the road allowed us to see the variety of large and beautiful properties as far as the eye could see. Obviously, a very popular district. As far as we were concerned, a problem causing us to be delayed, had enabled us to find a hidden gem, one of our favourite sites on our month-long tour of New Zealand and one we would without question visit again.

It's a small place, crowded but friendly, with excellent facilities and nice cabins, and all the facilities you need. Right near the beach and an excellent fish and chip shop. We enjoyed a couple days there with teenagers who found friends and especially appreciated the pool.

Really appropriate to call this place Cosy Corner because this is what it is! A cosy corner nestled in the wild jungle of hot properties that crowd this beautiful strip of the Bay of Plenty. It' s a very tidy and pleasant little holiday park about 4kms from Mt.Maunganui town centre , across the road from the beach access that leads to the beautiful beach.
We stayed in a self contained studio plus which was just right for our little family, maybe a bit small but we were quite happy with that little corner table and sit by the sliding door enjoying the evening sun and some pre dinner drinks!
There's a nice swimming pool and a hot tub(we were too cold to use them!), a games room, a bbq area (well sheltered), kitchen facilities (with what looked like a brand new oven) and laundry. We didn't look at the communal toilets and shower but i can bet they would be spotless just as everything else...even the rubbish area is immaculate! :)
Hosts and and worker are really nice and helpful if you need any information about the local area.
We think we would go back , my only complaint would be that our bed was too soft for my liking.

Great place. Quiet and very clean. Great staff. Will be back. Only stayed one night. Not long enough. Clean pool and hot tub. Kitchen, showers very clean. One of the best parks I have stayed in. Very close to a great surf beach, shops just down the road. Close to the main Mount Maunganui shopping area.

Room Tip: Kitchen cabins are great value.

Our boys and families had an enjoyable stay. The facilities (kitchen, cabins, games area, BBQ area, bathrooms, laundry) were all very clean. You have amazing staff, they are very thorough with keeping everything so spotlessly clean. All your facilities were well equipped, there were enough extra activities in the games room to keep the boys busy and the beds were very comfortable. Thank you for letting us use your fridge/ freezer in the kitchen area.

Thank you for allowing our team to come back and have lunch on Sunday as our team had checked out, your hospitality and generosity did not go by unnoticed with our Team and families. We were very fortunate to come 6th in the Tournament as our final game was against ‘Tauranga A Team’. Also a thank you for the extra McDonalds vouchers. 80% of our parents had never been to the Mount and were very impressed with your facilities, as most of them either stay in Hotels or Motels they will now consider the venues in the Membership pack.

Room Tip: Excellet BBQ area, large clean hot plates that heat up quickly.
