5.0 Excellent on TripAdvisor
We stayed in Pod 6 which was very spacious and had absolutely everything we needed. Comfortable bed, clever storage, great bathroom and a well stocked kitchen for basic cooking. Stunning location right by the beach so definitely head out for an evening walk to watch the sunset (you might see a seal or 2!). Pop on some repellent before you go as the mosquitoes and sand flies come out at dusk. Excellent spot to base yourself from for a couple of nights. Having never stayed in a shipping container before, we weren't sure what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised. Check in/check out was seamless and wifi was fairly decent. Highly recommend.

The accommodation was spotless, modern and extremely well equipped. Staff were friendly and helpful. The bed was very comfortable. Our cabin had an outside bathtub. Having a bath under a West Coast starry sky with the Tasmanian sea doing its thing in the background was one of the most uplifting experiences we have ever had. If we could, we would give it six out of five stars. (It has to be said that we were very lucky with the weather. Incidentally, the sea is quite rough and although we had intended to have a swim, we soon changed our mind and had a bath instead.)

THE coolest place I have ever stayed. Right on the beach. Made it in time for sunset viewing. The owners have thought of everything, and you can see the care that goes into this place. Listen to the waves as you drift asleep!.

Clean and comfortable pods. Sue and Andy were such gracious enthusiastic and helpful hosts. They were spot on with insisting we stay 1/2 hour longer on the beach to see the sunset and then the star display. The facilities catered to all of us who love the beach experience - bonfires, pizzas, lounging!
Sue, the place was great. It was super clean, really awesome layout with tons of goodies inside. The entire concept was so cool sitting in front of the Tasman sea with local food being served so we didn’t have to get back out after a long day of driving. I would highly recommend this place for a few days, because it’s so cute and beautiful. What a place..stunning spot, superb amenities and lovely helpful hosts..the beach is a revelation, so naturally beautiful and we even literally bumped into a seal idly wading his way out into the sea. Highly recommended to anyone in the area

Fabulous location. The containers are exactly as pictured and described. Extremely comfortable, cosy and very well equipped. We loved taking a bath outside under the stars and falling asleep to the sound of the waves. The plots are very generous - plenty of space for everyone. Great beach for a long walk in the morning. A good place to stop and break the journey on route down the West coast. Can highly recommend! Thanks for a memorable experience :-)There is nothing to dislike. Everything to our liking.

Gorgeous beach-front stay. The location was absolutely beautiful - right on the beach front! I loved the concept of the stay being in a converted shipping container which was compact but just what we needed. there was a lovely deck area with a bbq and seating area which we both made use of!

My husband and I stayed here during our cycle trail tour in March. It was great! We loved it. Sue and Andy are great hosts. They were more than happy to take us down to the pub and pick us up. This was greatly appreciated when we ate far too much! The pods were cute, we enjoyed the tiny living experience. The beach is at your door step so the waves are nice to listen to at night. Overall great experience. Would highly recommend.

We loved the location and setting being right on the beach, we enjoyed the evenings watching the sunsets. For New Years eve others from the camp gathered on the beach we lit fires, toasted marshmellows and saw the NY in with fireworks, great end to 2022

Beautiful Ross campsite next to the beachWe stayed here over 3 nights. A beautiful well run camp ground with very good facilities. Beach is right there, hearing the waves and seeing the amazing sunsets us so beautiful. Night times consisted of bonfire, toasted marshmallows with a wine watching the sun go down. We stayed in a powered site but beautiful containercabins in which are all very private. The Top10 is close to all things in Hokitika and surrounding areas, would highly recommend staying here
