We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay and were made to feel very welcome. The site was very quiet so we had no difficulties using any of the facilities, which were very clean. We will certainly come back next year.

Our family stayed here for a week. When we booked, the lovely staff member suggested a site by the playground - an excellent idea, as our 3 kids under 5 could play all day with no concern. Some have mentioned the playground is old, but the kids loved it. Beach right on the doorstep was great! The bathrooms are old,...

Hi Megan_Shep We are pleased you liked your site next to our "rustic" playground, keeping the kids entertained during family trips are a must.... so the adults can relax aswell!!! .

We stayed here after travelling up form Whangarei. We didn’t think it was too far out of the way and the road to the peninsula was very quiet. The lady who checked us in wasn’t particularly friendly, but the campsite was very quiet and set in lovely surroundings and less than a minutes walk to the beach and the sea....

Not sure why that holiday park belongs to the Top10 group. We stayed there for 3 nights, $ 42 / night for a powered RV site. We felt it was way too expensive for what you get from them. Facilities are really average. Kitchen was ok, but BBQs were broken and dirty. Missing gas knobs etc... Staff were really noise...

Hi Nandor123456789 Our park has just changed hands, we are sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. Our kitchen is only 3 years old and is of high slandered, we do understand are BBQs are in need of an upgrade, and will hopefully be getting on to it soon.

This Ten Top reaches the standard of the other Top Ten's we have stayed out, clean, nice public areas etc. Not sure if it was just our cabin but there were rules everywhere for for everything.

I was met by two lovely ladies who gave me two warmest welcome so far on my trip. A very relaxing place and very well kept.

We stayed 3 nights in the two bedrooms spa villa during April 2015. The location was very remote. If you plan to stay there, my advice to you is to stock up enough ingredients to cook your own meals. Don't ever think of buying the ingredients in any near by supermarket or grocery shop. The nearest Four Square supermarket was...

We were a group of Nine and rented there large cabin/house which slept 6. It was high on the ridge, beautiful and well kept.

“Avoid down by the stream as the mozzies are worst there. Many of the main sites also border the main road around the campsite, which makes choosing a spot safe for little ones hard.”
