    “Wairoro Park has a quiet idyllic setting, but not all of the cabins are equal.”

    The photo featured on this request and your website shows Cabin 8 The Stables with SUNSHINE ON THE DECK. Aside of a little filtered sun reaching there mid afternoon briefly and a little mid morning sun near the back porch, sun did not penetrate the talls trees. Consequently I found the cabin to be cool and dark. The darkness was compounded by the fact that the circuit breaker for the lights kept being tripped, even after all other power sources (except the fridge) were turned off. There is also ...

    The photo featured on this request and your website shows Cabin 8 The Stables with SUNSHINE ON THE DECK. Aside of a little filtered sun reaching there mid afternoon briefly and a little mid morning sun near the back porch, sun did not penetrate the talls trees. Consequently I found the cabin to be cool and dark. The darkness was compounded by the fact that the circuit breaker for the lights kept being tripped, even after all other power sources (except the fridge) were turned off. There is also a sign on the light switch over the dining table that says DO NOT USE, and the light bulb is removed. I also had trouble with the extractor fan in the shower not working, and I couldn't engage the shower slide to prevent water from splashing outside the shower cubicle. Otherwise everything else was fine. I met the owner the first morning (thursday) and had a lovely chat with her about how lucky we were to be able to share her home and gardens etc. The dog loved the place and settled in well, and I met a rodent and possum trapper who was setting bait. Generally the stay was good, but marred by the poor light, coldness of the cabin, and lack of lights and other faulty equipment. It wasn't cheap to stay in fairly basic accommodation, so I would expect a better quality of service and upkeep of the property.

For a taste of the local wine Omata vineyard is next door to this expansive site. If you’re coming across from the Opua ferry, this tranquil holiday park is situated just 2km away. Head over to Russell for the day, just 7 minutes drive and while your there jump on the ferry to Paihia. For a piece of New Zealand, Waitangi is less than 5 minutes from Paihia.

Adults should closely supervise young children to ensure that they do not climb the horizontal wooden slats in the deck barrier.

As the property has unfenced access to the lake, adults should closely supervise young children while outside to ensure they are safe around water.

About the location

Otherwise known as Old Russell, Okiato is a small coastal town in the Bay of Islands just south of Russell. Briefly the first capital of New Zealand from 1840-1841, Okiato has a special place in New Zealand history. From here, head to one of the many picturesque beaches nearby, go on an adventure out to the Bay of Islands, or discover an important part of New Zealand's history at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. All of our Okiato holiday homes are pre-inspected prior to your arrival and are ready for instant online booking.
