Westport Kiwi Holiday Park & Motels


We are a short 10 minute walk from the main street, yet far enough away so that all of our guests can wake-up to the sound of the native birds. We are set in 5 hectares of West Coast native bush which is home to many native creatures and often the endangered Weka can be seen making their way around the camp.

All of our chalets are individual units, with varying facilities, from Standard Cabins to self-contained Chalets and Studio Motels. We can cater for disabilities and have full wheel-chair access 2 Bedroom Motels.

We also offer a range of sheltered tent sites and level, hard-based powered sites, all with ample space.

For your entertainment we can offer the tranquillity of native bush throughout the holiday park, a covered BBQ area, recreation room, a playground for the young ones and an 18 hole mini golf course for all ages.

This holiday park is the closest accommodation to the Solid Energy Sports Centre, which is ideal for sports groups and swimming.

We are centrally located within the town boundary for day trips to beaches, seal colony, Denniston, Old Ghost Road and Karamea.

Local information and bookings for adventure activities can be arranged.

Gentle Annie Seaside Accommodation and Camping Ground


Aotearoa as it used to be –  lush, unspoiled and natural. Half an hour north of Westport on the doorstep of the Kahurangi National Park, Gentle-Annie is a coastal enclave with its own warm frost free microclimate. Bounded by the Tasman Sea, the mighty Mokihinui River and Nikau-fringed native bush, it is an excellent place to set up base and be rejuvenated and recharged.

We have 4 private, self-contained holiday homes, a backpacker style lodge, and a camping ground, all a stones throw from the ocean or river, with beautiful views of this stunning area.

Gentle Annie is 15 minutes from the world class Old Ghost Road mountain biking and walking track and within an hour of many scenic attractions of the Northern Buller Region –  north to Kahurangi National Park, Heaphy Track, Oparara Valley with it’s Limestone Arches and Honeycomb Caves; and south to Charming Creek Walkway, Denniston Plateau, Cape Foulwind Seal Colony and Punakaiki Pancake Rocks. The region maintains much of its eccentricity and wilderness, offering an opportunity to get close to nature. If you’re a moutain biker, botanist, geologist, artist, beachcomber, fisherman, kayaker, cyclist, tramper and/or adventurer at heart, Gentle-Annie is a natural destination for you.
