I don't stay normally in Motor Camps but had no option when I had to do a job at Waihi Beach. The accommodation was booked for me and I arrived with a degree of trepidation. The welcome was warm and friendly, the unit was clean and tidy and all in all I was pretty impressed. Location is a bit of... More

We tented at this holiday park for two nights and loved it. The camp ground is small with quite a few permanent camp sites but still room for tents near the beach. The sites don't have trees but are sheltered from winds with trees around the perimeter. The facilities are clean, have everything you need and they even have an... More

This is a beautiful location for a holiday park...ocean beach on one side and a lovely inlet bay on the other. The facilities are very well maintained, lovely and clean, which of course points to the quality of the management. My wife and I arrived during a busy long weekend and we were concerned to get a good site for... More

We stayed here at one of the powered campsites. The location is beautiful with the surf beach one side with lifeguards and on the other side of the camp a gorgeous safe swimming bay perfect for kids. The camp grounds and facilities where great (my friends said the family bathroom was amazing) and everything super clean, I reckon the cleanest... More

The campsite was very family friendly and it was great seeing the children making their own campsite communities. Nicki the owner / manager was fantastic and so so caring. we decided to go off in our campervan for a couple of days to visit... More

Stayed earlier this year and have done a lot of camping over the years. These were by far the nicest most welcoming staff we have ever dealt with. Beautiful place and the cabin was nice too. Would definately recommend, putting the top in Top Ten.

We stayed in a park motel. It was spotlessly clean and very well appointed. Excellent layout and a very comfy couch. A large flat screen tv in the lounge and another tv in the queen bedroom. Great water pressure in the shower and even a disco light in the shower head, much to the amusement of the teenagers! The whole... More

We stayed one night here on a road trip and wished we could cancel the rest and stay put! The location is paradise, fabulous play area and facilities and very helpful manager who has great local knowledge. We stayed in a self-contained unit which was very well appointed. The only small issue is that the people in the adjoining unit... More

Hi Anita, We are sad to hear about the problem with the noise from the unit next door and since your review we have made some additions to the sliding door on the unit next door to minimise the noise, It is always great for people to tell us if there is something wrong as we like to fix it...
