“Great facilities, Great location”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

After a questionable experience at Kaikoura Top 10 we were delighted to find this Top 10 site so charming and well equipped in a fantastic location for visiting the Kauri forests. We spent one night in an ensuite unit and one in a one bedroom luxury cabin. Both were clean, modern, well equipped and in great locations on the site. The luxury cabin had all you could ask for including comfortable lounge and private decking/garden areas. In our experience the Trounson kauri walk was the best of the local kauri trails and staying here can do both the guided nighttime version to see kiwi and awe at the grandeur of the trees looming in the dark, as well as revisiting the trail in daylight. Both absolute musts. Staff at this Top 10 were excellent,particularly Tabatha

My friend and I, both in our seventies, stayed 3 nights in a kitchen cabin and used the ablutions block. It was clean and modern and well lit at night - we were very impressed The cabin was quite spacious, the kitchen well supplied with the essentials, the double bed and the bunk, very comfortable. We spent an idyllic few hours one morning strolling beside the rivers that surrounded the park - sparkling water, trickling over rocks and stones, wonderful reflections for photography - a stepping stone crossing to a wilder part of the park - the sun shone brilliantly, a couple of girls from the school camp at the back of the park, rode the flying fox - what a location. We really didn't want to leave.

Three mothers and our teenage daughters have just spent a weekend at Kauri Coast Top 10 Holiday Park and had a fabulous time. Despite Cyclone Lusi descending upon us, we were dry, cosy and warm in our cabins. Luckily the weather didn't turn out as bad as predicted (at least not within the Park grounds) and the girls were still able to enjoy the amazing swimming hole hidden away in the native bush, the flying fox etc. The Park's grounds are immaculate, the facilities top notch, and the owners friendly and very helpful. We really enjoyed our stay...well done Kauri Coast Top 10 Holiday Park!!

Hi Sandra
thank you so much for your great review!! It is often the case that when bad weather strikes it remains fairly calm here as we are generally sheltered in the valley, meaning that you can still have a great time here, as you did. Having WIFI, SKY tv and an indoor table tennis room mean that there is a variety of inoor entertainment for everyone to enjoy. It was a real pleasure having your group stay with us - we hope you will be back soon
Best Regards - Jane

We have just enjoyed another fantastic stay at this Top 10 Park. This time we took friends with us who also thoroughly enjoyed it. The new owners are very helpful and have made some really pleasant improvements, like the table tennis table which the kids loved. Our kids spent many hours jumping into the water hole and fishing for eels. Highly recommend. We had the best sleep in weeks in our room. The self contained cabins beside the river are so serene.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us. It is great to hear that you enjoyed the extra facilities we have provided - the table tennis, basketball, SKYtv and petanque court are some of the extras we have added in the last few months. Great to hear you slept so well in our comfy well appointed units. We look forward to welcoming you back soon

We've stayed at many camp sites throughout NZ and this was one of the best that we've come across thus far.

The children loved the water holes and the flying fox. Really clean, lovely facilities. We also did the evening walk and spotted one kiwi and a pregnant possum!

Room Tip: We camped on site 68 - lovely! Very private and it was lovely to hear the river every morning.

Hi Sarah - thank you so much for taking the time to review our beautiful Park. Glad you enjoyed tent site 68. It is quite private and gives you beautiful views of the river as it leaves the Park. Glad you got to see a kiwi and your kids enjoyed the river so much. Hope to see you again soon - why not take advantage of one of our special customer loyalty offers this winter

We arrived for a very brief stay in a studio cabin. Friendly staff, clean facilities. Serene location. The Trounson forest walk was really nice (morning, not the night hike) with so many big beautiful kauri and birds, and only few minutes drive away. Recommended.

Hi - thank you so much for taking the time to review our beautiful Park. Serene is a great way to describe the environment here!. Glad you enjoyed the beautiful Northland Forests - many people use our Park as a base for visiting the Waipoua and Trounson forests, and also visit the beautiful nearby Kai Iwi Lakes

Nice quiet location, the night walk was good , pity there were no kiwi to be seen, but was enjoyable anyhow. The one down side was it must have being the worst bed we had ever slept on, unit 4
Bit pricey considering there was no toilet or bathroom in the room

Room Tip: Check the bed before you go in

Glad to hear you enjoyed a walk in the forest, though I don't think you can have been on our Guided Night Walk over this last week (you say you were here in March and it is now only 3rd March?), as the only guests who stayed in unit 4 who went on the walk were not Australian and did see a Kiwi that night. Indeed we have seen Kiwi every night for the past week. I am sorry you didn't have a good nights sleep. This is the first time I have had any complaint about the quality of the beds - I am sorry that this bed didn't work for you. I am not sure what the problem was, as you do not say in your review, but I have been and checked the mattress myself, and couldn''t find any specific issue with it.
Regards
Jane
