Nice little holiday park around five minutes walk from the village centre. Has a nice location on the coast and everything you need (in our case for an overnight powered motorhome site). Laundry facilities were available, paid (cheap) wifi, an old-fashioned lounge with TV and book exchange, hot showers, dump station etc. The owners were helpful and gave us local... More

Had a wonderful two night stay at this very reasonably priced motor camp which rates top for facilities, friendliness, cleanliness and helpfulness. You could not get much closer to the water, and the views were amazing across the harbour to the hills. Would recommend staying here to anyone. We will come back again.

Kawhia beach s-cape is a lovely, quiet and beautifully situated campsite. We had a wonderful time. The owners are really friendly and helpful. The ablutions were clean and the showers hot! Kayaking over the beautiful estuary was a real treat (only $10 to hire)-do it if you can. I cannot recommend this site more highly. Thank you 😀

Hubby & I decided to take a weekend break to somewhere we hadn't explored before... Kawhia had been on our list for a few years. We were not disappointed. On a budget we thought this holiday park might be out of our range, however, we found a reasonable rate offered on their lovely self-contained units - Lovely surprise no.1, and... More

Hi Anihera We are pleased you enjoyed your stay so much. You have given us a wonderful review, surprise #1 for us. We really appreciated that you kept your lovely little dog in good control and respected our requests where she was concerned, surprise #2.

Amazing view as we stayed in a non powered tent site right at the waters edge. Free spade hire for Te Puia springs and the drive is less then 10 minutes. Showers are nice and hot! The owners and locals are also super friendly! TV lounge has Sky so plenty to watch at night, could probably do with some board... More

The owners of this Holiday Park make you feel like family and make sure you are comfortable and sorted. The grounds are immaculate and the Units and caravan or tent sites all have views of the harbour. You will have no regrets staying here.

What a lovely surprise! A small family oriented holiday park right near the water. We stayed in a cabin that had been very tastefully renovated and was extremely comfortable and very affordable for $80 - we got a fully made bed, towels, soap and a kettle with coffee, tea, sugar and hot chocolate.

Fantastic little motel/camp ground right on the waterfront with lovely views of the bay. Good prices. Very well equipped motel units and super clean. Kayaks available for use. Friendly, helpful staff. 5-10 mins walk to township. A great place to kick back and relax, would make a return visit.
