“Labour weekend stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

We were a family of four; two adults, two teenage children. We had a powered waterfront site for our caravan. The booking was over the phone and the staff member I spoke with was very helpful, going the extra mile describing the sites and position to facilities in the park. Plenty to do, walks and beach close by.Leigh( glass bottom was an excellent excursion) and Matakana are a short car trip away. Clean and well equipped facilities. Good outdoor dinning area.

Room Tip: well layer out holiday park

We have stayed at Whangateau many years ago, and ventured back with our young family for a stay over Labour Weekend in an onsite caravan. How impressed we were with the upgrades (kids playarea, trampoline, kitchen facilities, accommodation etc). We had a really lovely time and it was good to see how our son was (10 months) with camping. We have already made a February booking and are looking forward to having a wee holiday with our extended family as well. Can't recommend Whangateau Holiday Park enough. Lovely, friendly staff.

I took my two kids ... My Son who is 12 and my Daughter who is 9, to Whangateau Holiday Park. It was a last minute booking and it was a great choice. We had never been there before and we rented a self contained apartment that had everything we could possibly want, with brilliant other added facilities for the kids - Plus all the cooking and washing facilities. We were lucky to be blessed with great weather and the views and sunsets were stunning. We loved it so much we extended our stay. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the location is close to everything, but feels miles away. The boat ramp is very accessible and made it very easy with the kids. We will most certainly return for a holiday. Being less than an hour from the North Shore, Auckland makes it a very attractive option. We went for walks, swims, fishing, snorkeling at Leigh, eating and shopping in Matakana - Brilliant!!

Room Tip: Self Contained apartment with own toilets and shower

We've enjoyed BBQs with my visited friend and my wife.
Thanks for all staff to welcome us to stay the great place.

Stayed with my son overnight on a visit to Leigh for some fishing. The owners where very helpful and knowledgable about the area. Felt very welcome and at home. Will be back again soon to make sure we catch that snapper..

We spent a couple of nights in a cute cosy cabin with a much appreciated heat pump and a pleasant view of the estuary and a chatty morpork at night. It's a lovely peaceful spot within easy reach of Auckland and really conveniently located for trips to the great Matakana weekend markets, Morris and James pottery and interesting galleries, Pakiri beach and the Leigh Fish and Chip shop...what more could you need?
The staff were really friendly and helpful, going the extra mile to reunite me with my torch which I left there by mistake. The facilities were spotless. Hope to repeat the experience soon :-)

We took our two children for their first experience at a caravan park, and stayed in an on-site caravan. What a wonderful experience! The children could play on the beach and we were right on the water's edge. The amenities are extremely clean and we left all saying it was one of the best weekends away we have had for a long time. Thank you to the staff as the seamless experience we had takes a lot of behind the scenes effort and you should be congratulated. We will be back!
