Waipu Cove Cottages & Camping: "Campground with sea views" Waipu Cove Hotel Tip by Kate-Me
Waipu Cove Hotels: 1 reviews and 5 photos
For a double cabin, we paid $54 (incl $10 fee for linen hire).
There are 4 backpacker rooms upstairs, above kitchen & amenities block, which share a balcony looking out over the sea & nearby islands, plus small common upstairs area which has a fridge & kettle (which we had all to ourselves because the other backpacker rooms were vacant)
Plenty of parking for vans, some cottage accom too.
Unique Qualities: This place had the cleanest bathrooms I’ve ever seen in a holiday park – spotless, with stainless steel shower bases, great water pressure (50c needed for 5 minutes hot water) and bathroom has an automatic light which comes on at night when you enter.
Another great feature was free dingy hire, which at high tide you can use to cross the narrow creek which runs directly between the park boundary and the beach (or at low tide you can walk through the knee deep water to reach the beach, as the creek is the only access)
Best value stop on our whole trip for the money. I'd definitely recommend this place for the budget traveller.
