We stayed there for a few days in the unit. Accomodation was great and company even better. I did a charter with Joe to ranfurly and it was one of the best trips i have had. If we get back to NZ another trip to Mels place is definately on.

Mel's Place is situated on a rocky headland less than 100m from the swimming beach at Onepoto Bay, close to Hicks bay. There are good views from around the property which includes a number of tent sites. The atmosphere of the place was friendly and informal (no filling out of forms upon arrival) and the owners friendly and helpful (organising onward rides etc.) The facilities were quite basic: single 'long drop' style toilet and single shower which required turning the gas on and off (the place does not have mains electricity). Some queing for the toilet and shower was necessary on occasion. The facilities were kept clean and tidy. Overall I would thoroughly recommend the place for anyone not too concerned about the basic facilities.
