About Us

Established in 2008, Owner/Operators Sheree & Grant Webster have turned what once was a plant nursery into one of the top Holiday Parks in New Zealand.

With the old Hot Water Beach campsite having been shut down for a number of years and wanting a change in their working life, Sheree & Grant saw a gap in the market and decided to go all in on a Holiday Park. They purchased the plant nursery that was up for sale at the time and then began the huge job of creating an award winning business which opened in 2008. Now in the present day they have achieved just that, but as as they both acknowledge; 

"It is always a team effort"
