My family needed accommodation and booked into this establishment. We found the room clean and well presented. There was biscuits and muesli available. The owners were totally professional well mannered and also accommodating to our family needs. I recommend this establishment to all.

Super friendly owners, small but beautiful campsite. $30p/n for a tent for the 2 of us. Nice, clean facilities - even lend you a shovel to go and dig your own spa pool on Ocean Beach. We only planned to stay a night but stayed a couple as it was so ideal. The place to stay in Kawhia!!

A clean, well run camping ground with spaces for tents and camping vans. We hired a waterfront cabin which was clean and okay. Stayed there just 5 days after the earthquake so it would have been useful to be told that if the siren goes in the middle of the night, it is for the fire station not a tsunami... More

Hi Mark Thank you for choosing to stay with us, and for taking the time to review us. I am very sorry you were frightened by the local fire siren. As you were very close to the water we can understand your concern and natural anxiety, hearing this so soon after the most recent large earthquake/s. Regards Carolyn. More

Hi Mavis Thank you for your review. As far as things to do in Kawhia go, we have Hot Water Springs on Ocean Beach accessible for about 4 hours around low tide. It is also an awsome beach to walk or ride. Vehicle access is at low tide down the harbour and round the point onto the beach. Kawhia has... More

We stayed one night in the large studio motel. It was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. On-site owners were very helpful and friendly and we sure would recommend this Holiday Park to any traveller.

The campsite location is outstanding. The water is right beside the camp and looks amazing. The staff were extremely friendly and kind, we had originally booked a powered site but asked to change to a room as it was colder than we thought that day. It was no problem and they were extremely courteous. The rooms we stayed in were... More

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).

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.
