We stayed here on the last night of our Campervan road trip around North Island and this made an excellent spot to finish our holiday. The hospitality was very welcoming and both Bronwyn and Snow are really friendly and wonderful to talk to and exchange stories. An idealic spot with some spectacular views of the harbour and coast and hot springs are just a few minures walk away at a beach the other side of the village. Facilities are spotless and clean and the showers were the hottest we'd experienced anywhere!
If your looking for a site with the standards of a "top 10" but a little bit different head for Kawhia Beachside.
