Footprints In The Sand
Reviewed 19 February 2010

Camped here for 2 nights just after New Years and wish we'd had longer. Tokomaru Bay is great and this was the perfect place to stay. Sean (the owner) was extremely welcoming and after 2 days felt like we'd know him forever. Really helpful and gave great advice on what to do in the area. Facilities were spotless and the outdoor approach to the kitchen had a real holiday feel to it. Really good sense of community. Will definitely be back.

Spent one night at this lovely place, in the double room which is in a house shared with Michelle (the sister of Sean the owner). You get to share the kitchen & bathroom but have your own room and dining area.

The house is a beautiful old building, really nicely restored, new kitchen & bathroom, comfortable bed, very quiet - you should get a good night's sleep! The whole house is very clean (there is a backpackers here too, with dorms, that is in a separate building which we didn't go in but it looked fine).

Sean and Michelle are both lovely people, keen to interact & share their experiences, very inspirational people, we really enjoyed staying with them. They are generous too - sharing their home-grown tomatoes and feijoas with us!

All in all a great place to stay if you are after peace and quiet, and good company.
