    the above reviews are crap

    Stayed nearby for New Years and repetitious loud drumming music kept us up all night. Music continued past 7:50 am following morning.

    I absolutely LOVE this place, my husband and our friends have been coming here for years! We just love it, so many things to do and it`s away from all the hustle and bustle. Mike thank you for always being so welcoming and making sure we are having a good time! On a side note WELL DONE mike on saving that baby orca on the 27.3.14 I heard all about it! So awesome of all the locals who spent 5 hours re floating it, and yourself to have spotted the poor wee thing! :D

    My Favorite Place

    Every year for the last 11 years I have taken my horses and dog to camp here, just before Christmas. It is my favorite thing in the world to do and we are well looked after by Mike who is committed to improving the facilities and our stay each time. May New Zealand keep this magical gem for those of us that appreciate the very best life has to offer...Raw beauty, country hospitality and a sense of freedom. Thank you for making it happen.
