We found this site completely by mistake after being told we could not stay at the Opotiki holiday park as we had a 8 week old puppy and hadn’t sought approval from management. We asked if there were any other camp sites around but were told No!!!! Luckily for us Google pointed us here to Island View a stunning little campground with lively staff beautiful amenities and dead smack on the beach. The owner went out of his way to make sure we felt welcomed 8 week puppy and all, I can not highly enough recommend this campground to anyone seeking out a totally non stressed holiday away.

This was our 7th year of camping here. The camp site is excellent, with fabulous staff. We can bring our dog which is one of the main reasons we keep coming back. Great beach, now with a lovely bike/walking track along the bay. Thoroughly recommend.

Stayed one night in a cabin and asked to leave the car on our friends site while we went for a bush walk the next day. Upon returning we were invited for a cup of tea by friends on their site and a staff member approached and asked us to leave. This was off season and quiet with less than 50 % occupancy. She also stated that she had had a complaint from the cleaners which, when questioned, pertained to us leaving wine bottles outside our cabin by the bin. We had washed and dried all dishes, tidied up and left the place tidy so felt this was unreasonable and there was also no signage. The cabin cost was $200 for the one night for 4 adults without kitchen or bathroom. We are mature travellers and have years of camping experience who won’t be staying there again or recommend to friends.

There seems a double standard when booking and prices. Cannot recommend and would never return. Too confusing and arrogant staff. I believe that if you go on holiday you should be able to stay in the same spot

Response from Lorne Simmons, Owner at Island View Holiday Park
Responded 22 Aug 2021
The guests paid the heavily discounted NZMCA winter ‘Camp Saver Rate’ of $11 per person per night. We are not aware of any commercial campground in New Zealand offering rates any lower than this, and are therefore unsure what their specific complaint regarding price is. Our security footage has been reviewed by management and confirms that our staff were nothing but courteous and professional, whereas the guests used abusive and insulting language towards our staff and management. The complaint about being “…able to stay in the same spot” refers to the guest failing to check out or extend their booking by 2pm (some 4 hours past our check out time) and expecting to be able to stay on the same site. We were unable to accommodate this as we had an arriving large NZMCA group booking, who had confirmed specific sites. We offered an alternate site which they were unhappy with, and chose to depart, in a disgruntled and agitated state. We would caution other camps against accepting these guests, and have lodged a complaint with NZMCA.

Knowledgeable, helpful and very friendly staff, assisted me with some campervan troubles so kindly. Lush landscaping to feel like your in paradise. Free hot showers with no timers! Very clean and tidy facilities. Not too mention right on the beach. I would definitely recommend this place
