We booked a family special deal and stayed here for two nights. We got a kitchenette cabin good for four people that had a double bed and bunk beds for our two kids. The cabin was clean and contained a heater, ref, microwave, toaster, crockery and utensils.
Guests have access to shared showers and toilets which were located separately. There was no issue with water pressure and availability of hot water. However, it could be a bit of a hassle to get there when it's cold or raining, especially at night, since there was no covered walkway.
We made full use of the communal kitchen for cooking our meals as well as the BBQ grill for our steak dinner. There was a large covered area with dining tables where guests could have their meals and have a few drinks. Other facilities available were a swimming pool, hot spa, reading room with an adjacent TV room, coin-operated washer and drier for those with laundry needs.
A voucher for free wifi access was given to us when we checked in by friendly staff. However, we had to be judicious in its use since it was not unlimited surfing.
The location was fabulous since it took only a few minutes of walking to reach Whangarei falls. The beautiful beaches of the Tutukaka coast was a short drive away.
