Accommodation Details

When you stay with us, you’ll be immersed in a natural playground, see rare North Island weka and pateke roam free around the park and you may even have the chance to see brown kiwi in the surrounding native bush.
Wake up to the sound of native birds, hear the call of the kiwi at night as you gaze at the star filled sky or sit around the camp fire. It’s the perfect setting to make memories as nature intended!  

You’ll have the best of both worlds when you stay with us. We’re set amongst 14 acres of native New Zealand bush and only minutes away from the centre of Russell and Oneroa Bay one of the many gorgeous beaches. 
We are the perfect location for families, large groups or couples to have a relaxing and fun filled holiday with affordable accommodation to suit any budget.
We have a range of self-contained options including a cottage, holiday house, bungalows and bay view cabins, ranging from studio up to 3 bedroom. Many with their own private deck to relax and watch the wildlife go by or the magical sunsets over Orongo Bay. The tipi and sites for tents, caravans and campervans are all set amongst our gorgeous native bush setting. Our cabins are a great budget option making use of the shared facilities. The lodge is fully equipped to accommodate large groups of over 60 people with purpose built kitchen, dining and lounge areas.

We have everything you need for a hassle-free holiday including a swimming pool, wood fired pizza oven, campfire and our very own kiwi trail through native bush - if you’re lucky you may even see a kiwi! And there is complimentary parking for all guests.

Take the short 5min drive to discover the stories, history and heritage of Russell, a romantic and charming town and the first capital of New Zealand. 
There are so many fantastic things to see and do in the area including cycling, fishing, walking, dining, golden beaches and historic sites, all only a few minutes drive from the park. Our location provides a central base to explore the stunning Bay of Islands. Make the most of our complimentary tours and activities booking service onsite with our friendly, knowledgeable staff. 
Book with us and a portion of what you pay will support our efforts to save endangered wildlife and ecosystems within our predator free holiday park.

  • A basic no-frills cabin with minimal room. It is what we expected based on the website, but is maybe a bit expensive compared with other accommodation we stayed at in Northland. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Sadly no kiwis on view.

  • We stayed in the teepee. Twas very clean and suprisingly warm. The staff (?owners) were very helpful - we arrived late, they kept the office open for us. Clean bathrooms, good location.
