Tahuna Beach Kiwi Holiday Park and Motel
Ranked #9 of 43 Specialty Lodging in Nelson
Reviewed April 13, 2014

This was a massive campground! We went at the tail end of summer and it was largely deserted, so had a lot of the facilities to ourselves, but I can only imagine how noisy and busy it would be in high summer. Not for the faint of heart! We happened to like the sound of the planes coming and going but that might not be music for all. The washrooms were clean and tidy, kitchens also although we only washed up there. We liked the easy access to the beach. Check in staff was helpful and friendly and we could park our RV pretty much where we liked. Using the sani-dump facility was reasonably easy but again, in high summer, could be a very busy place. We enjoyed our stay of two nights but I don't think I would come in early or mid summer.

Facilities were fine and there was privacy over at the far end of the camp where it was quiet, but we'd hate to be there when it was full - this was by far and away the biggest place we stayed and it just felt too big for us. Also you're right next to the airport so be prepared for the noise of planes landing and taking off (not all night but throughout the day). Not a bad place to stay if it's quiet.

Room Tip: Try to get to the far side of the camp if you're in a van.

Stayed 2 nights, this is a large complex that appears to cater for young families. We were given a free reign of where we could park our Motorhome. The complex was clean and tidy. Beware the camp is on the flight path of landing and take off of commercial and private Air planes. From 7am there was a constant flow of passenger plans taking taking off and arriving. And on top of that at around 8 each morning the pa system would blast out messages and greetings. So of u are a light sleeper forget about a sleepin

This holiday park was amazing! The best holiday park I have stayed at so far. Very clean, good service friendly people.

One time there were drunk people who were having a party in the room next to us. We called security and they came with in 2 minutes! Straight away it stopped and they didn't tell them who called security on them for privacy reasons which was good!


Highly Recommended!
(P.S: there is so much to do there and is very safe for kids!)

We had a 2 bedroom cabin that can sleep up to 6 people. There was a pull out bed in the living area. Though the pull out was not as comfy as we had hoped. My kids 11 and 14 enjoyed the close proximity to the beach and activities like mini golf. Very family friendly and clean. It was a 15 min drive to the city centre ie shops and supermarkets. Made me feel like I was a part of the Nelson suburb, which I enjoyed tremendously, pretending to be part of the local landscape. We had a lovely unblocked view as it was low season. However we'd been told the camp gets crowded during peak season so can't give you an accurate picture what happens when it is full.

Room Tip: Ask for a cabin with privacy and you may get the newer ones built at the end of the park.
