We stayed here for two nights on a powered site with our caravan. It is a mix of newish and really old-school buildings. New owners are really lovely and helpful. Stunning outlook and you can swim right off the front lawn. Clean and quiet. Would definitely recommend.

Kawhia Beachside S-Cape Holiday Park was the perfect location for our New year Trip this year. We booked out 4 cabins, 2 of them overlooked the water, and had a wonderful deck which we used everyday, for sightseeing, nibbles and evening drinks. We could not fault the Park in anyway, the owners were super friendly and were extremely helpful in...

We stayed in the two bedroom unit with 3 children. It was really comfortable, lovely and clean and with great views out over the water (no tents blocking the view). Bill and Carolyn were extremely helpful, friendly and considerate. We hired a couple of kayaks and had a great time kayaking in the calm, shallow waters near the camp ground....

Thank you for your great review. Yes, that motel unit is the pick of our 5 motels, for a family, being the roomiest, up off the ground with great views over the harbour and the grassed area out front for the family to enjoy. The deck is private and lovely to sit there in the evening. Thanks again for taking...

Bill and Carolyn were excellent hosts, made us feel very welcome. This park is an older style park that reminded me of the holiday parks I used to visit as a child. Very family friendly. Well worth a visit.

This place was just what we needed, the awesome new owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome, even giving us coffee and tea, finding us a cabin to fit three teenagers and me at one days notice, stopping us from digging fruitlessly in the harbour for the hot water and kidly directing us to the right...

Greg and I stayed for two nights and he worked while I was at a conference. The quiet is to die for and admittedly we were there well before the summer crowds are due to arrive but if you want somewhere deafeningly quiet to escape to, Kawhia Beachside would be a place to add to your list of options.

We came to Kawhia Beachside S/Cape Holiday Park in the low season during Winter, so were the only guests. The new owners though, just about made us feel like family! The rooms here are very simple, if not a touch shabby, but that didn't stop us enjoying our stay one bit. The communal living room and kitchen were well equipped...

We stayed with our two children for one night in a campervan - would loved to have stayed longer here. Great spot, lovely new owners and the facilities are excellent and spotless.

It's Kawhia, it's West Coast, it's miles from anywhere and we loved it, the owners were very helpful, the 2 bedroom we stayed in was clean and the beds comfortable.
