We did the booking for nice and cute room, nice pictures, nice description on your hotels.com webiste. We just get a 20 years old CARAVAN without water, toilet, shower....

You can check some pictures on Tripadvisor!!!

I will only say that it's nice place if you have to go with your own tent.

Out of the city (small village).

Room Tip: Never rent the Salomon Caravan

There are a variety of cabins suiting different needs and pockets. We stayed in the kauri cabin.
Good size fridge. No kettle or toaster. Extra crockery and cutlery were only found in the drawers when we left. This is a fairly small cabin for 3 people (little room to move around in) however the kitchen clean with table and chairs and has enough to manage with. The showers are very good no time limit. Hot tub not hot enough to use. All in all this is a very good camp site, safe, lovely place for children (fun things to play on) and veryb good for large and small groups.

Room Tip: You get what you pay for. I would have liked a jug and toaster in the Kauri cabin. The nice big...

Me and my wife stayed for a night in our campervan with Martin, Anna and Rose, we had a good time with them!, they took us to their farm about 30k away. The place has everything you need (kitchen, bathrooms, open spaces, etc) and most important the energy is strongly positive in the middle of nature. Hope we can come back someday...Thanks friends!

The "Tui" as such was a great cottage to stay for our three nights..and am sure the place promises to be a great spot in the future.. (hopefully with lesser cats, lol)..was only crashing there during our night time due to work..

The Cottage was quiet and well maintained..Free WIFI was good, but never really used it...Anna, the manager was great....
:)

Thanks

I've been staying here on a weekly basis for the last three months while working in the area. The camp and ammenities are kept clean and tidy, and the cabins I use are always clean and provided with fresh linen before I arrive. I bring my own meals and microwave them in the shared kitchen, but if I was so inclined there's sufficient hot plates and a small oven if you want to cook from scratch.
The staff are friendly and helpful, and do a great job maintaining the area. There's a range of prices for different cabins, basically you get what you pay for, I go for Fish or Acorn and am well satisfied with them.

Superb spacious and warm cottage accommodations in a lovely country setting. Very easy to find. This was the nicest cottage I stayed in during 4 days of travel across the country with my dogs. The hosts were extremely friendly and the feel of the holiday park was lovely. I highly recommend these accommodations to anyone in the area.
