Tidy campground that is not too big and the shower/toilets are excellent. It was a busy Waitangi weekend and the staff were constantly changing bins and cleaning the site which was excellent. The location is also fab as the beach is very close and a short walk to the high street~ that has everything. SO all ticks on the first impressions and first day..would have been a 5 star rating however...

The weekend we stayed was very noisy both nights. It was after 1am one night there was quite a racket, girls screaming and loud music. There was some noise coming from outside the campground too which can't be helped but there were certainly some inconsiderate campers and for this reason we would probably not return. I know it wasn't just us being fussy as a couple of campers made comments to me the next day about the noise.. we are pretty tolerant!

We requested to be away from the kids playground which was done, thank you! However you could hear the noise from one of the swings/slides from where we were.. probably needs oiling!

Good facilities but think we have realised the DOC sites and regional parks are probably where we should be going to avoid the inconsiderate idiots..

Thank you for taking time to submit this feedback, We were very disappointed to find out that some of our guests had created a nuisance of them selves while staying with us, The Group involved was spoken to after the first night only to repeat the behavior the following night. This group has now been Blacklisted and will no longer be allowed at Beachaven, So again we do apologize.

Ideal spot just a few minutes from the beach. Huge big backpackers room with bunks, clean and tidy with lockers. Very clean holiday park, modern. Friendly staff, helpful and happy. I was there at a busy time of year over the holidays, but it was still a nice stay. Caravan sites and motel units also available.

We had three nights here and found the facilities and camp ground very good. The only faults were that they did not enforce the time limit on the playground at night and the office was never attended by anyone when we stayed.

Thank you for taking the time to review our park, As you can understand during the busy periods policing the noise at night and the play ground can be a difficult task, Our staff and private security do patrol the park at random intervals to attempt to keep on top of this although the noise can restart as soon as we have moved on. , We are truly sorry that this disrupted your stay. The office can often be unattended as we are out and about tending to customers needs else where in the park but there is a phone system located at the door to contact us any time. Thanks again for your feedback.

Awesome stay at Waihi Beachaven camp ... warm and welcoming staff made it all so easy and enjoyable. Also - very relaxed and friendly camp goers who made camp life enjoyable for 3 days even thought the camp was at full capacity and nota space to spare. The facilities were awesome - very very clean and accessible. Our family loved the fact we could take our dog along too.
We created a wee bit of damage to the driveway as we entered (oops!) but the team fixed it immediately with a smile and made us feel welcome.
An easy stroll to a lovely part of the Waihi Beach
We will come back to enjoy the Beachaven camp due to the welcoming staff, great facilities with a range of accommodation options and lovely friendly feel. Thanks a mill.

Room Tip: all campsites were great .. the motel units were spacious and well appointed.

Big large and flat site, powered. We've stayed there 3 years running now and booked in for next year as we were leaving. Great relaxed atmosphere, family friendly and a nice way to meet others from around NZ. Facilities are excellent, with kitchen area, outdoor dining area, BBQ's, a wood-fired pizza oven(!!!!), TV room, playground, table-tennis, rental bikes, and the usual showers/toilets etc. Scott, Rosie and the team work hard to keep everything clean and tidy which is no mean feat when the campground is full (and it often is, because it's so good!).

Close to the beach, awesome walking tracks at the North end of Waihi Beach, the visitor attractions of Waihi, and shopping in Tauranga should the rain strike.

If you want a quality holiday, at a very reasonable price, then this is the place for you and your family.
