Baylys Beach Holiday Park

We went there for the quads they do rent out to drive along the coast. This was one hell of an adventure and amazing fun.
The lady behind the counter was very friendly and helpful.
The region itself is simple but beautiful.

Baylys Beach Holiday Park is located at a 15 minute walking distance from the 100km long Ripiro Ocean Beach, NZ's longest drivable beach for 4WD vehicles. The tiny seaside town consists mainly of holiday houses and is unimpressive.

Arriving after a day on the road, we were welcomed by the park's lady receptionist with a friendly smile. The park offers cabins, a backpacker lodge, cottages and powered & unpowered sites. Facilities encompass free showers, kitchen, BBQ and laundry. Wi-Fi internet is extra. We had a powered site for one night. As off-season had started we saw few other camper-vans in the park.

The park is quiet, family operated and reasonably maintained. The cabins appear nice and comfortable. Overall the park facilities however leave a somewhat outdated impression. Nonetheless we recommend Baylys Beach Holiday Park to anyone travelling with a camper-van.

I found the staff helpful, both with long distance communications and changes on the day to best suit us. The units were true to description, with the cabins being sunny spots and the basic cabins having good beds. The whole atmosphere was friendly too.

We stayed overnight in the 2 bedroom cabin, which was very comfy. Reminiscent of kiwi camping grounds during my childhood. Great hosts and we found it to be clean and good value. The beach is a a few minutes walk down the hill.

Our party of 5 (2 couples + 1 teenagers) found this camp ground was just the ticket! The old bungalow house was very clean, tidy and well appointed. We loved the old vintage style, made for a lovely change from standard motels. Management was welcoming, friendly and helpful. Small deck with plenty of outdoor furniture was a delight for happy hour!!. Very relaxed casual environment, locals very friendly. The flys were a little thick at the time but plenty fly spray was provided, so not a problem to us. One hundred metres from our driveway was a lovely restaurant bar called the Funky Fish Cafe highly recommend a they had 3 chefs offering different style of menus. Up the road on the corner was a dairy/fishnchip shop. Beautifully cooked takeaways and good value. Highly recommend the 3 rooms house for a family, plenty of space to spread out!!

My children and I stayed in the house they have for rent from 11th to 17th of Feb 2014, and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The people managing it were so friendly, and they couldn't do enough for us. The house was clean and large enough for all of us, and the park was clean and well kept. It was a great place to stay while we explored the local area. We hope to return soon!
