The park is very clean and tidy and the cabins are as well. The cabins were well looked after and had all the facilities needed. Very peaceful and quiet and in a fantastic location just near the beach. The owners obviously take a lot of pride in running their business. Fantastic value for the price. I would gladly stay here again.

This is a unique spot to camp in the Catlins! The Campground is very well maintained, clean and lovely, the owners are really nice locals and the close by beach is just fantastic. You can watch amazing new Zealand Seelions!!!

We had a great time at Newhaven Holiday Park. The Unit was modern and super clean and the bed was comfy. Despite at full capacity over the long weekend the place was quiet and peaceful. And what can be better to wake up to bird songs and sea breezes. The beach access is a bonus and if you are lucky the sealions will stop you to walk the entire length. We would like to say thank you to Lyndon and Jacqui for making this place so special. We will be back.

We booked a tourist cabin at New Haven holiday park, arrived, and received a warm friendly welcome, nothing was a bother. Nice to have some one who seemed to enjoy his work and where he lived, and that like wise was interested in us. Our cabin was basic but very comfortable clean and adequate, and a good price. There were also great amenities for those camping. Nice area to walk along the estuary to the beach. Just a short 5-10 minute drive into Owaka to a restaurant if one desired a night off cooking. A recommended stay for families, or a group of friends, or a couple wanting to relax and breath the fresh air and explore the magic of nature.

Newhaven Holiday Park is one of those places that when the time comes to leave you find yourself wishing you could stay a bit longer.

I had high hopes for our stay having read several good reviews and I wasn't disappointed in any way - in fact my expectations were exceeded. My son and I stayed two nights in one of the Tourist Flats and we couldn't fault it.

It was exceptionally clean and tidy, well equipped and reflected the care and attention that the owners obviously put into running their property. Newhaven was a perfect base from which to explore the Catlins - the sea lions on the adjoining beach were an added bonus.

Thank you Lyndon and Jacqui for being great hosts - I hope to return someday.
