Introducing Ross Beach TOP 10 Holiday Park

Quirky / kwe:ki/ Characterised by unexpected or unusual in an interesting and unconventional, appealing way.

Kia ora, we are a boutique, quirky, couple-focused TOP 10 Holiday Park. Nestled on New Zealand’s Ross Beach, right by the glistening Tasman Sea, you simply couldn’t dream up a better location for a relaxing, chilled out holiday park experience. Better still, the range of accommodation type you’ll find here is like no other TOP 10 you have ever seen, and delightfully one-off – with Studio Pods and soon to arrive Geo Glamping Domes, cleverly (and cosily) created from repurposed and upcycled shipping containers!

Surrounded by fresh native plants, you can drift off to sleep listening to the gentle sounds of the sea. Wake up and greet the morning sunshine out on your furnished deck. You’ll find 11 quirky pods to choose from, each one individually styled to reflect its unique location by the sea and native plantings. There’s also a range of tent and campervan sites, if you’d rather bring your own accommodation.

The most luxurious pod on offer is the Maxi Studio Apartment Pad, which is ideal for a romantic couple. Featuring private kitchen and bathroom facilities, private outdoor bath tub (with fluffy ‘his and hers’ bath robes), you can savour the sun set and watch the Milky Way overhead. 

Meanwhile, the Whanau Pods sleeps 4, for families with a sense of fun and adventure! Cosily furnished with a Queen bed and a set of bunks for the little ones, there’s also a kettle with tea, coffee and milk supplied, along with a small bar fridge. You’ll be sharing the generous communal facilities on-site, which include toilets and piping hot showers, a well-stocked camp kitchen, a Sky-equipped TV room, and a large, sociable area for sizzling barbecues!

So, with your Ross accommodation nicely sorted, how will you spend your time? Well, there’s always that gorgeously wild beach; whilst not really suitable for swimming, it’s perfect for lazy afternoons with a good book, or beach camp fire. During the summer months the on-site Wood fired Pizza takeaway and off-license offer a great evening feed in the beachside chillout zone. 

Keen cyclists will love the close proximity to the West Coast Wilderness Trail, which winds its way through ancient rainforests and former goldmining towns, glacial rivers, and scenic wetlands. Though it’ll take four whole days to complete the trail in full, you’re only 200m from the start (or finish), and with bike hire readily available straight from our Ross Beach holiday park, there’s no excuse not to give it a whirl!

Indulge in all that fresh-air-filled activity to your hearts’ content… then relax and chat the evening away with new friends over a delicious barbecue, or pizza supper. What better way to spend a holiday?

Things to note:

Dogs are welcome by prior arrangement only, and only in your own motorhome or campervan. Tent sites are not available from May – October.

Love the location right on the coast. The place is perfect for camping, or renting. Each space has a little bush, and amenities are clean and new and well tended to.
Pizza on a nice day with a drink and a seat by the dunes is the best way to end the day! Highly recommend!

We arrived late but the owners were very accommodating, thankfully we still made it in time to grab a pizza from their pizza oven and watch the sunset on the beach. One of the best sites we stayed at in NZ, definitely recommended for a stop off if you are travelling along the West Coast. The facilities are modern and clean, our stay was even topped off with a beautiful sunset and clear sky to gaze at the stars.

Stayed here for a night in my van while touring the South Island. Was made to feel very welcome and at home by the cleaners and owners. The location is great by the beach and the facilities are excellent, including the jacuzzi. It's been my favourite campsite over the whole South Island - I will definitely be back!

This Holiday Park would be the cleanest and tidiest we have ever encountered on our extensive travels. To top that off, the owners and staff were very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. We were in our motorhome at a beach front site and the views were wonderful, especially at sunset. We will definitely return !!
