We loved our stay at the HUGE Waikanae Beach TOP 10 Holiday Park, located right on the beach and only a short stroll from town we did not even had to use the car to make the most of the area. Plus the staff as super friendly and helpful which turned our stay from good to absolutely great!

A very pleasant stay for two older couples in a two bedroomed motel unit. Peaceful, clean, well equipped, friendly and helpful staff. Grounds well maintained. Great location to beach and easy walk into town. Thank you.

The room was really small and tide and not impressive at all but it was very clean. There is a common kitchen for all the guests which was a bit smelly and we decided not to use the fridge. Location was just on the beach where you can see the sunrise.

Been coming here since the late 1980s (about 10x), but last visit last visit was 2007. The location on the beach front is hard to beat, plus tennis courts, plus nearby Caption Morgan's shop with some best burgers ever, and plus most importantly the Gizzy weather can always be relied upon. I would not recommend coming over the Christmas-New Year...

Positive Nice location close to Beach. Negatives very noisy from adjacent port working 24/7 Very old tight facilities, needs serious investment to upgrade to what we find in other Holiday Parks. Showers took forever to warm up and you need to stand at back of toilet seat to shut toilet door. Over priced!

Right at the beach! Clean toilets and showers and friendly stuff. Sunshine brewery right around the corner. We liked it! But they don't have much trees or bushes to provide shadow sites. 10 min to walk to i-site and 15 min to city center!

Wow, what a great place to see. Whether you are a Lord of the Rings fan or Hobbit fan or both or not you will be amazed by this tourism venture in NZ. If you r coming to the North Island then do this tour you will not regret it. Thanks to Pip and Sue the bus drivers and Abbey...

Campground right on foreshore of Waikanae beach. Public reserve area in front of campground but camp separated by a see through fence. Views of Nicks head from front sites. Safe swimming. Facilities old but very clean and had a large kitchen. Walking distance to town centre

Small room with minimum facilities, no fridge, everything 'crushed in'. You have to use a common fridge in the kitchen, both can only be opened by using the security card. There is a kettle but not much else. Would not go back. Surprised it has a Top10 lable but then NZ does not appear to have a star system.
