Log cabin was clean and tidy. We received good service upon check in. We had a private cabin on the end, could just see the beach. Bathroom is aging but otherwise clean and tidy. Just across from the glowworm dell which was a trip highlight.

Lovely setting next to the beach with amazing driftwood. Reception staff friendly as. Stayed in number 12 cabin, clean and excellent for our family of 4 adults. Don't stay in Punakiki, travel down the road and stay here.

2nd time we have stayed here. Did not disppoint. Friendly staff. Nice clean accommodation . We stayed in the beach front accommodation . Lovely to hear the surf and quick walk to the beach for Sunrise. Short walk to glow worms across rd. Definitely recommend.

Great shower and reasonably priced for the accommodation type. The staff are very friendly. Definitely only a three star property. Think budget accommodation. The “chalets” are very dated. The bed in our room was rock hard. Very overdue for a renovation and the property needs...More
