This property stands out as one of the best in our month-long visit to both islands of New Zealand. We stayed in a riverside cottage, which was spacious, clean, and well-equipped. Kitchen included large fridge, full oven, 4 burner cooktop, microwave. Unit was reasonably priced, located next to a beautiful clear river (although due to vegetation there were no actual views of it from our room). The adjoining barbeque area did have some river views. The grounds of the park are well maintained, and there is a communal kitchen and play areas for children. Internet is fast but not free, cost is $7 for 24 hours. This Park is also unique in that it offers a guided night walk into the protected kiwi habitat in the nearby Trounson Kauri Forest. We did take this ($25 per person), and did spot a brown kiwi, which was one of the highlights of our visit. Walk was expertly guided by Sarah. We were very pleased with this property and recommend it.
