Staying at Tahuna Beach Holiday Park, Tahunanui

Tennessy Weir checks into Tahuna Beach Holiday Park, Tahunanui.

Check-in experience:

Reception was humming because it was Wellington anniversary weekend. The women behind the desks worked their way through the small crowd swiftly.

We were handed a map of the park and the key to our room which we found easily. We admired the permanent residents’ tiny plots decorated with treasures and pretty gardens.

Location: Tahunanui, sunny Nelson. A scenic 1.5 hour drive from Picton.

Room: A cosy kitchen cabin, two singles and a double bed, with views over the Tahunanui Beach Reserve.

Food and drink: BBQ areas where most ate, drank and played.

The bed: Firm and comfortable.

Wi-Fi: Free for the first 30 mins (100mbs). It was such a slow connection I gave up.

Noise: Unfortunately we were in the Nelson flight path so we got an early morning wake-up and the last one flew over around 21:30.

Bathroom: Communal, yet clean.

Price: $83 a night.

What’s in the neighbourhood: Natureland Zoo, Burrell Park, Nelson Fun Park, bars and takeaway joints. Nelson centre was five minutes away. Pic’s factory was heading south, as were Motueka, Moutere, Kaiteriteri and Mapua.


What we loved: Being close to what the Tasman has to offer.

Would I return: For a short stay.
