Very nice place and very helpful staff. The cabin had everything one would need for a short or long stay and it was very close to the beach for walks there. The walk up to Mangawhai Heads is terrific. We enjoyed our stay very much

Glad to hear you had a great stay in our nicely appointed Park motel and enjoyed some of the magnificent walks in the area. Safe travels for the rest of your journey.

In general a very unfriendly camping. Managers saying that kids are annoying. No care at all for them nor for adults. Had sleep less nights due to their toilet sewer pump noise and when asked to do something answer has been: "it's your problem". Kiwi hospitality is better than that.

we paid $67 per night for unpowered site for 2 adults and 2 small children, and we thought that was rather expensive. The showers on top of this were coin paid which we felt was a bit cheeky seeing as the stay price was where it was set. Nice new toilets. We stayed the weekend before ANZAC which their website...

Disappointed that you chose to place a review without 1st seeking clarification. It appears that you have been overcharged, but without checking your booking it is hard to reconcile. We would like you to get in touch us so we can rectify the overpayment. The weekend before ANZAC weekend was Easter which is a peak time as stated on our...

Firstly the staff were amazing. Local knowledge and only too willing to assist and answer questions before and during the stay. We were hampered by weather leading up, but so glad we went. We stayed on a non-powered site in a caravan. With all the rain the water was filthy, but within two high tides was beautifully clear again. No...

Thanks so much for your review of our park.. We were so glad to not have much of the cyclone arrive as predicted - made for an awesome Easter for everyone. Hopefully we will see you back in the near future.

Location was great - easy to find and right on the beach front. New amenities block was lovely and close to powered sites. Lovely to wake up to the sun rising on the beach! Only downside was that the ground being uneven led to a slightly wonky sleep :)

I was pleasantly surprised with our 2 bedroom unit it was not like being in a camp ground as the camping was to the side and it was a nice quiet area on a street with a couple of private baches. Parking outside, close to the estuary. The unit was furnished with everything, quite modern with a pretty little outdoor...

Glad to hear you had a great stay in our self contained cabin and thanks so much for leaving nice and tidy. This cabin has no linen or bedding supplied to offer a more affordable option than a fully made up cabin.
