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.

Would I return: For a short stay.
