We called Peketa late and weren't going to arrive til after they closed but they were very accommodating and left an envelope with instructions and codes for us. The shower facilities were great with warm water. Waking up to views of the beach on one side and snow capped peaks on the other was pretty spectacular.

Lovely setting and you can pay $2 extra per person to be closest to the beach though you still can't see the beach; just the ocean.
Facilities are fine except the showers are set on a standard temperature. It was too hot for me but you are unable to adjust it.
The mini golf and flying fox are fun.
Reception is very friendly.
The hot bread option didn't really work for me. It was supposed to be sour dough but there was hardly a whiff of sour dough i.e. not traditional sour dough. Also be aware it is not a full loaf of bread. More like a pretty large bun.
Though located near the airport, it wasn't such an issue as there were mainly helicopters and smaller aircraft going overhead.
Wifi is about $5 for 5 GB. This cost can add up over time in N.Z.

Thank you for your input.

Beach front is what it is, we could put ocean front but dosn't have the nice ring to it as beach front does and where else can you get this close to the sea without swimming in it.
Have had adjustable showers here in the past but they kept getting broken by people not so courteous so this is the best solution and some of the showers are a bit cooler than others.
The bread we buy is sour dough by Cottage Lane but everyone has a opinion on what is there favourite sour dough.We don't advertise as a loaf but it is a good size round bread.Yum
Wifi is $5 for 10 GB which is pretty good.

Enjoy the rest of your holiday in NZ and look forward to your return one day

Loved Kaikōura Peketa Beach holiday park! Relaxed spot, amazing location, great new owners Ruth and Rex (and Doug the dog) and delicious real fruit ice cream. Look forward to returning, thanks for the hospitality!

Situated next to the beach, very beautiful, we have had a beachfront site, we appreciated the paved pitch so the camper was equilibrated. The only but not unimportant negative point were the old and dirty showers at the campsite.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments. Yes, we are very fortunate to have paved slabs right on the beachfront.

If you were unfortunate enough to follow someone else who didn't leave the shower clean then we are sorry, but perhaps advising the office of the problem at the time would have been appreciated.

All our facility blocks are cleaned daily and in the summer twice daily if not more. We appreciate that our facility blocks are older style but they are most definitely kept clean.

Once again, thank you for staying with us and for rating us 4 star.

We stayed 1 night in a powered "premium" beachfront site. These sites are a very short walk to the beach and depending upon the particular spot, may boast a view of the ocean.

The woman at the front desk is fantastic. We spoke with her on the phone in order to change our reservation and she was even nicer when we met her in person!

We did use the pre-paid Wi-Fi, which was fine. The reception has a small store for some basic food and personal items.

It was very peaceful, sleeping to the sounds of the ocean is a delight. The roads were closed from 7p - 7a due to construction and cyclone repairs. That may have added to the peaceful nature of it. A lovely spot (and a short 5 minutes or so to the whale watching departures.)
