“Clean and Convenient”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Attended a wedding at the Funky Fish Cafe and opted to stay here... The bach cabin facilities included a kitchenette with microwave, stove top, small oven, small fridge, tea and coffee facilities, 2x single beds and a double bed with ensuite, which suited us immensely for breakfast, lunch and snacks...

We requested a spare mattress and spare towels which were delivered without any fuss so the staff were friendly and inviting...

Room Tip: No. 4 bach cabin apparently has the most comfortable double bed and the trees give off shade on the...

Great location a few mins walk to the beach, heaps of room, extremely clean kitchen and toilet areas, great service and I must say we were surprised at just how well equiped this location was as everything needed was there. Friendly staff added the cherry ontop.

This campsite is a lot smaller than most we have visited, however this adds to it's charm
The facilities were better than expected, both communal kitchen and bathrooms are clean and well maintained
The west coast beach is approx 15min walk away. General store is a handy 2min walk from the campsite
The staff lady at reception was helpful and warm and happy to help us with enquiries
Overall a really great stay

Room Tip: Stayed in a tent - N/a

Stayed here in one of the cabins with my dog as we couldn't have her where my family was camping. Cabin was perfect for what I needed, close to the stunning beach, and to food shops. Owners very helpful and kitchen and bathrooms were clean and tidy, would recommend of your looking for something with typical kiwi caracter

We stayed at the Holiday park for two nights in one of the self contained batch (Bedroom, lounge and kitchen). The batch had been recently renovated and was clean and tidy - nothing fancy just what was needed. We had and LCD TV on the wall with the usual free channels. The lounge/kitchen had two single beds in one corner and a small dinning table and chairs on the other. The kitchen or Kitchenette had a microwave, fridge and a small cook-top - ideal for a quick dinner. Communal kitchen and BBQ were also available around the corner from our batch. The bedroom had a double bed with en-suite bathroom and toilet. Bathroom and toilet were were tidy all round.
Wireless internet was available for a charge - we did not try this as we used the cellphone network instead (vodafone - good reception).
The two nights we stayed over were quiet and peaceful even though this is a camp ground - noise level was well acceptable and dropped down to nothing at night.
Only criticism we had were the beds were the bouncy type and we ended sleeping in separate beds so that we both could have a good night sleep (i wriggle a lot!) - apart from that price vs value this was great.

Room Tip: The batches (specially No2) tends to be away from the camp grounds and was very quiet.

Friendly place for your family to stay with pets allowed. Nice little bungalows, clean, green grass tent pitches with power. Well equipped kitchen area including free use of BBQ, cooking plates, toaster, kettle, fridge and freezer. Toilet area nothing special, simple and clean.
Nice little playground for the kids with a big bounce.
Beach is a good 10mins walk with a climb on the way back.
Very friendly and hospital management.

I've stayed here about 10 times this past year as I go up to the North Kaipara regularly. Trish and Mark the managers are really friendly people and I always like going back the the Baylys Motor Camp, its peaceful and safe. In the last year we've tented, stayed in the cabins and tourist flat and always enjoyed our stay.

Baylys Beach is a charming Kiwi Beach village just North of Dargaville and really worth the short detour off State Highway 12. The Beach itself is spectacular and can be driven, ridden or walked on for miles.

The Beach is a few minutes walk from the campsite and if you want a feed you can go to Sharkys for good Kiwi Takeaways or if you want to dine out or have a few drinks the famous Funky Fish is 30 seconds away next door. The Funky Fish is also probably the coolest live music venue in North Kaipara!

Baylys Beach is a great spot to stay to get away from it all, or as a base to savour the other attractions of the region (ask Trish for info or get a copy of her new guide). If you are one of these folk in a hurry its also a good place to just to stopover, but you may regret not staying longer.

The facilities are classic Kiwi and clean, as a regular I am ever amazed at how hard they work to keep the Bathrooms and Kitchens clean.

Hope you enjoy your stay there :-)
