We rented the beachfront villa for two nights to get some rest during a long campervan vacation with our baby daughter, and we ended up staying an extra night and not leaving the house for the full day. The house is wonderfully charming, the beach view beautiful and the fireplace heaven. And the price (160NZD per night) is a bargain,...

Myself, my partner, and 3 kids (5-14) decided last minute to come up for the night from Chch,subsequently the place was almost fully booked aside from deluxe cabin. Wow! This had every thing we needed, except a bathroom, but that was all of 20seconds away. The cabin was clean, tidy and most of all fresh-not stuffy. Basically there is jug,...

This was very good value for a family requiring 2 bedrooms! Extremely clean, new furniture, well appointed kitchen and all round comfortable. The small children loved the bouncing pillow and other kids stuff. Close to town and good launching point for tours and excursions. Too much trouble to access wifi.

Loved the self-contained unit. Great layout with kids playground. Pity we couldn't stay for longer. Friendly service and a great meal at the local tavern - very friendly there too! Will definitely head back there one day if I can.

We stayed in a powered site for 2 days. Park is clean and the sites are gravelled with trees for some privacy. Amenities were clean. Hot tub is a great bonus. Walking distance to town. On the down side it is situated between the main road and the train line so there is a bit of road and train noise...

Initially excited to find this park which from the road appeared to front the beach only to find it fronts the railway line with no beach access. It is a neat and tidy park however we wet more than annoyed that a bunch of teenagers were allowed to stay in the spa after 9.30 pm and were obviously drunk judging...
