We stayed in a self contained cabin and the facilities were great. The kitchenette had everything you needed and the bathroom was hotel standard. Everything was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. The location is amazing! The cabin was only a few meters from the beach and across the road from a cafe/restaurant and convenience store. We would...

Directly at the beach. Facilities are good and clean. Kitchen, laundry and playground for kids are available. Hot shower is only 50c. And the lovely owner helped us out with sticky tape, so we could install our Christmas deco in the van! Many thanks again!

This is a great site. We have a caravan and stayed in one of the powered sites. The facilities are clean, well cared for and the site is beautifully presented. If you want to stay somewhere within 2 hours of Auckland, this is a great place to go.

Thank you for the great review! We're just close enough to Auckland to be a great spot for a weekend getaway. Jump in the car after work and you can be strolling on our beautiful beach within a couple of hours.

Loved this place! We stayed in a cabin and loved how clean the amenities were, the easy walking distance to playgrounds and beach and dairy. Local cafe The Cove is great, and we enjoyed how the kids could walk to the dairy safely on their own. Thanks for a great stay, we'll bring bikes next time!

Thank you for the review, the sand dune that runs along the length of the campground can offer some great shelter and with multiple walkways throughout the camp the beach is always just a short walk away at all times! We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us :)

The campsite has everything you need and is superbly located to the beach. We only live in Whangarei which is 30 minutes away but felt like we were a million miles away. Kitchen facilities and toilet blocks were great and the staff were very helpful.
