We are only 20 minutes from the main tourist attractions and only 10 minutes to Whitianga Beaches and township offering amazing cafes, bars and restaurants. We are a family business and know the importance of a relaxed holiday. Spend the day out sightseeing and come back to a glass of wine while the children play in our extensive playground or take part in our feeding of the animals. Mill Creek Valley offers fresh water swimming holes. There is something for the whole family. BBQ's are on site and FREE for use. Several local horse riding facilities are among the many attractions close by or perhaps you would prefer our local boat charters.

  • Nice peaceful central location

    Nice peaceful central location. Kids enjoyed the animals. The cabin was comfortable but a little buried in the Bush. Some clearing of vegetation would help. Overall the place grows on you and we enjoyed our 5 night stay.

    The setting is awesome (quiet and secluded) and the kids loved the playground, river and animals. It would have been nice to know that the unit is part of a camping ground, rather than a stand-alone bach, and that the washing machine and drier are communal and coin operated ($8 per wash/dry). Even though it sleeps 8 people it was pretty crowded with 8 of us in there (4 adults and 4 kids). Fresh towels every couple of days would have been nice, plus somewhere to hang them all!
