Stepping into the reception begins the high standards throughout. The staff are warm and welcoming and very knowledgable of the area. The units are spotless and value for money.

Wonderful to hear you had such a great time and that our staff and property met your expectations. We have a great team of people working here at the park, so glad you were on the receiving end of their warm welcome. We are a family orientated park which is a huge draw card over the peak season. Looking forward...

We stayed one night in a cabin. It was clean and comfortable with our own bathroom. Noise was minimal and we had our own TV. The shared kitchen was spacious and it had a great atmosphere - right by the beach. Parking was a bit tight. We would stay again for sure!

This is a great place to stay. I had a self contained unit as well as a powered site. The facilities are kept clean and so are the grounds. Security is excellent. All the staff I have had contact with have been very friendly and helpful. A great place to stay when in Gisborne.

My partner and i found the reception staff to be very friendly, the park to be clean and tidy which is not easy being so close to the beach. We both loved waking up each morning with a view from our motorhome of the beach. I you love surfing then this is a great spot.

A really nice place, quality beach front location and right at the end of the main street. The facilities were very clean with great showers and kitchen, and a very nice & helpful reception team who allowed us to leave 3 hours later than normal checkout...as we got in late the night before after a long drive. Was fairly priced...

Right on the beach with access to waves and surf and great Gisborne weather. The office rents wet suits and boogie boards. The beach has nice sand waves showers and board walk. Spent almost a week and had a great time of it. Big roomy unit as well.

We shared a 2 bedroom unit with another couple of friends and stayed 2 nights. Room was clean and comfortable. Nice walk along the beach front to town. Enjoyed a jump on the inflatable pillow in children's play area. Grounds were very nice. Would stay again if up this way.
