We booked an ensuite cabin and were not disappointed. We only had an overnight stay but could see this would be a great place to stay, especially if you had a family. Well appointed and clean holiday park, right on the beach. Everything we needed was nearby. Our only suggestion would be if windows or doors had screens as it... More

My children and I loved your camp site- we stayed in one of your cabins which was very homely, cosy and clean. Lovely spot, close to all amenities, playground and a beautiful beach. Thank you so much for having us, we will be back

The campsite is in a perfect location, we stayed in the Cove Bach, 3 adults and 5 kids, so a bit of a squeeze but we made it work :) Close to the toilet/shower block and a great playground for the kids and beach pretty much on the doorstep :) Could do with a better clean under the beds and...

Under two hours drive North of Auckland, this makes a perfect first overnight-stop on the way North. Awesome beach and great Camp facilities, with friendly, helpful staff. Cool village with shops and cafes nearby. We keep coming back, just from Auckland and have become regulars. Next long-weekend already booked.

An excellent little home away from home while we were midst house move. Ample room for family, well appointed unit, close to the beach and clean/tidy. Would be a great summer getaway for family or couple.

What a fantastic Easter weekend!! The whole family are coming back next year. Camp Waipu Cove would be the best camp ground I've ever stayed at with wonderful service and facilities, and right on a beautiful beach too.

We stayed in a cabin with 2 adults and 2 toddlers, it was suitable to us, clean, spacious, full kitchen, and around 20metres from the beach. We couldnt actually see the beach but it was a very brief stroll up a little hill to the beach. Great playground and tramps, nice and tidy TV room for wet weather (although a... More

We return to Waipu regularly staying in a cabin within the beach front camping grounds. Our stays are during the summer months and we cannot fault the cleanliness, service and price. The COVE cafe, across the road is a real bonus.

We ended up at this site by default on the first night of our NZ tour. Problems with the gearbox on our hired motor home meant we stopped here and spent 2 nights whistle we waited for the replacement van. Pitches reasonable size but with no shrubbery or anything to break up the field. Toilets etc up to standard but... More

Hi Alan We are sorry to hear about your gearbox problems you had while staying with us. With 235 sites to choose from we pretty much have something for everyone so if shelter/shade was what you were after we certainly could have allocated you an appropriate site to cater for your needs, we are sorry that this did not happen....

We were in a powered site. Excellent location walking distance to shops cafe/restaurant. Staff excellent. Fantastic park, 100% spotless toilets and showers (cost 50 cents for showers), excellent kitchen, tidy clean, dish wash liquid provided. Beach is perfect, surf life saving on duty, sheltered cove. Quiet and peaceful. Lots of powered sites to chose form. Highly recommend.
