Off the beaten track but wonderful pitches on the estuary. Quiet and peaceful and neat to Ocean Beach hot mud pools. Large and small spades available from Campsite to dig your own pool. Showers new and clean, huge kitchen with excellent facilities, although the building is old.

Thank you for reviewing us. Yes, the cabin block is old, about 60 years. You would have seen we have renovated 2 cabins last winter, and will continue on this winter renovating some more. We appreciate your taking the time to review us. Carolyn. More

Parked our motorhome directly adjacent to beachfront. Although quite tidal the outlook is pleasant. Very friendly and obliging hosts. The community kitchen and ablution facilities are maintained to a high standard. For those luckily enough to catch fish, there is a bench provided for cleaning and filleting.

A really lovely holiday park with excellent facilities. The showers (free) and toilets were very clean and there was plenty of hot water. We hadn't booked so were pleased to get a cabin with linen supplied for our one night stay. Our cabin had recently been redecorated and we could see that they were constantly maintaining and improving the facilities.... More

I called last minute to book as I backpacked through NZ looking for a quiet place for my last night in the country. I should have stayed 3 nights. Friendly owners, although old buildings, the beds were comfy & cozy, and the room was very clean. My cabin came with a queen size bed and 2 bunks, which would have... More

we booked the 2 bdrm unit, the only thing between the room and the water is a tree. There is an amazing 180 degree seaview in the living room and the double bdrm, you also get some seaview in the twin room. You can also see the white cliff from the deck. The motel is about 15 mins drive to... More

Beautiful, clean, friendly and everything you need. One of the best campgrounds I have stayed at. Loved the beach front location and very reasonably priced. Relaxing atmosphere. It would be nice if there was water we could have hooked up to in our caravan but didn't ask if there was a spot. Was not to worried as kitchen was close... More

This place is a five minute walk from Kawhia wharf. Great location on the waterfront. Very quiet. Great facilities - well stocked kitchen. Various accommodation options - cabins, house and camping plus campervan spots. Quite a nice smallish size. Recommended for your stay in Kawhia!

Great value for money. I stayed in a cabin room with shared amenities. Although the cabins are older they are very comfortable. They are slowly renovating the cabin rooms but I was very happy with mine. The toilet and showers are all new and they are very clean and well maintained. The kitchen is older but is exceptionally clean. It... More
