Stayed here for one night using a powered site. Reception staff were very helpful, friendly and nice to deal with. The grounds were lovely, with a nice swimming beach over the road. The kitchen and TVs rooms were well appointed. The bathroom was a little tired but nice and clean so perfectly adequate. This was the most expensive holiday park... More

We were a group of Nine and rented there large cabin/house which slept 6. It was high on the ridge, beautiful and well kept. We mainly utilized the kitchen in the house, but we did check out all the facilities and found them more than adequate, especially the communal kitchen. We have many camp grounds can be sparse as far... More

We stayed for 1 night at Whatuwhiwhi Holiday park 1 week ago and were very disappointed with the cabin we stayed in. In general the holiday park is nicely kept, most cabins look good and renovated, also the communal kitchen and bathrooms were well kept. But beware what cabin you book. We were 4 people and booked a cabin that... More

Interesting to stay somewhere which seems to have been created by a nudist, bald, grubby designer..... Nudist, because there was absolutely nowhere to hang or store clothes in our room Bald, because there was nowhere to plug in a hairdryer anywhere near a mirror Grubby, because there was nowhere to place toiletries in the bathroom, asides from the floor The...

The lady in the reception office was very friendly and helpful - seems common at T10HP's, I requested a spot that was quiet and/or with a view. I got a site at the top of the park (likely the quietest area from what I could tell. And if I stood at the edge of the site I could see the... More

A beautiful spot. Lovely beach to swim and fish in. Grassy shaded spot for Camperwagon. Amenities clean and maintained BUT the two BBQs were disappointingly filthy with the appearance of not being cleaned for days. Not what you would expect at a Top 10 and the price charged. Hopefully this is rectified and you will find this as beautiful a... More

The location is great, just a short walk across the road to the beach. The facilities are clean and tidy. There is a good central playground for the kids, boat cleaning facilities and fish gutting. Bikes to hire, a small shop with the basics. It was a very enjoyable 4 days away. Not alot else to do except visit the... More

Thank you for your review. We are surrounded with many beautiful beaches in this area. We have the most northern winery , also a world class golf course only 5 minutes from the Park. The mosquitoes are not from the stream ,it runs throughout the year, it is the vegetation around the area, also the humidity we have been having... More

Prepaid at the park for 2 nights as a Kataia hotel. Unfortunately its 40km from Kaitaia. I think that the acommodation was nice, however we stayed during a tropical low and the uprooted trees and no power were a bit scary. The facilities seemed to be great and the little beach would have been perfect on a quiet day. We... More

Thank you for your review. This was in the middle of our winter months, and the storm was extreme with flooding etc. Perhaps a return visit in the summer months where you can enjoy the beautiful beaches in our area. Our address is rural delivery Kaitaia, although we are in doubtless bay on the east coast. Regards Jeanette More

We have just finished a fabulous week at this campsite. We took our caravan so had a powered site. A stunning beach that is great for swimming and launching boats is just a few steps away. All amenities very clean and good quality. Will be back.

...and what a location it has. Walk out of the entrance to the park. Cross the road and you are on a beautiful beach. Whatuwhiwhi is quite a way off the beaten track but perfect for a couple, or more, days away from it all. We visited for two days, using it as a base for visiting Cape Reinga. It... More
