Close to the beach and yet an easy walk to the city centre as well. A simple and picturesque walk also, to the Marina area where there are several good mid-range dining options to choose from. The staff at Waikanae Beach Holiday Park were lovely to deal with.

We are Senior Citz and stayed in the most basic cabin. It was spotless and all the necessary facilities were excellent. Right on the beach and at the start of the new boardwalk. An easy walk. Highly recommended.

We stayed in the ensuite cabins ...they were updated and fresh ...the office staff were very friendly , however I was disappointed in one of the cleaners who seems to have a bad day every day ! I think a vacmum cleaner should be used in the rooms instead of just wet mopping floors !!!!!! I brought this to the... More

very unusual to find such a largish holiday park virtually in the central city, yet right beside a wonderful beach. We stayed in a family unit, which was very well appointed - but we were so impressed with the campground and its facilities that we are seriously considering making this our main tenting holiday destination next summer holidays.

We have just had two weeks camping here and it is absolutely fantastic. The staff are generous and helpful and kind-hearted. They really make you feel very welcome. The facilities are brilliant. The kitchens are large and have plenty of fridge and freezer space. The bathrooms are set out brilliantly, with plenty of hooks and space to move around even... More

We found the staff very approachable and ready to please. The Premises were kept very tidy. They supply many facilities for keeping your food cool at the same time ensuring their best to maintain the security. Loved the swipe card system for toilet/shower blocks, plus kitchen and chillers and freezers.

The close proximity to town and the beach is great. Follow the walk way to the restaurants, bars and shops or stroll across the grass to the beach. Good facilities and quiet. They have canoe, paddle board and surf board hire with a small shop attached to reception. Tourist office is also just around the corner. We stayed on a... More

My girlfriend and me stayed there for 1 night during the Xmas holidays. Apparently they take a adventage of the high season, by increasing their basic prices from $30 to $50. They are totally allowed to do that, but for $50 it wasn't really worth it (as we slept in our van). For comparison for $70 we could have get... More

Located on the beach but just around the corner from the commercial heart of Gisborne, this holiday park also has great facilities. My young son enjoyed the trampoline. They also have various kids' pedal vehicles and tennis equipment to rent a reasonable rates. Staff was very friendly and helpful in recommending nearby attractions/restaurants. The occupancy was very high, yet the... More

Thanks for your review – we are very lucky that we can be so close to the beach while still being only walking distance from town. Great to hear our staff were so helpful and the facilities were up to standard. I understand the shipping port can be a bit noisy at times, however as you said, after a while... More

Great place to stay with multiple options for accommodation types and if you are looking for reasonable prices. Walking distance to town, superb view across the bay with local shop across the road. Best place for family groups with good facilities and clean amenities.
