We had a cabin right on the water front, it was very clean and tidy and we had everything we needed. We definitely got value for money. The campers and caravans had plenty of room and moved about with a minimum of fuss. We would happily stay there again.

This camp site was so nice and relaxing. We easily parked our caravan on a site where we had full sea views. The owner, Conrad, was very helpful and made us feel at home. It was a small cute camp with everything you need…. showers, toilets, kitchen lounge, laundry, fish cleaning. These facilities were clean and a pleasure to use. We’ll definitely be returning.

I stayed in Kawhia on my way home from Auckland. I was also attending an unexpected conference in Hamilton, which I went to from Kawhia. Conrad, the owner, is a very warm gentleman. We had several brief chats while I was going to and from his holiday park. Another day I just crashed out in my motel unit and read - which I could do anywhere, of course, but looking out the window at the harbour now and then, in such peace and quiet, was just what I needed after a busy few days. It was great value, the bed was very comfortable, and the unit had everything I needed. I got the two bedroom one which has a full kitchen and a good layout. The water was hot and plentiful, and there were extra blankets for chilly winter nights. It is a really good place to stay.

As far as budget accommodation goes this place is great. Great value, great location, clean with a good shared kitchen and lounge. The owner was really nice too. Thanks for a great stay:) I would also recommend going to Hot Water Beach (at low tide). It was amazing.

We stayed at a waterfront motel unit but was a bit disappointed with the "view". There was a rather large bush/tree hiding the view! We did read about stunning water front views so the bush wasn't up to par, and could have easily been trimmed. The unit was clean and tidy but I noticed a plaster on the ground on the way up to the unit and a piece of broken glass. Just needs a few tweaks.
