I visited here as a solo tourist. The owner is so friendly and helpful. He gave me many information about Whangarei. And amenities are very clean. the shower, kitchen,lounge, ..I like everything. I must come back here!! 二泊予定が居心地がよくて四泊させてもらいました。 オーナーがとても親切でフレンドリーでとても過ごしやすい環境でした。 滝もビーチもタウンベイスンもほどよく近くて静かで最高の環境でした!!ちなみに無料で見れる土ボタルの洞窟も近くにあります🙌 日本人とは会わず、いろんな国の人たちと話ができてとても楽しかったです。 シャワーやランドリー、キッチンもとてもきれいでファンガレイに来る際はまたここを使おうと思っています! あとはホットプールもありました! 私は冬に滞在したので入らなかったですがとても素敵なプールでした🙌

They have excellent clean facilities. The owner was so friendly, he even came and helped me set up our Campervan to the power. It’s well laid out and easy to manoeuvre around even for a novice with a big vehicle. I would definitely stay here...More

Tons of facilities and everything is very clean. Owner went above and beyond pointing out all of the nearby hot spots and places to get food. Wish it wasn't raining the whole time but at least that kept the crowds down!
