For my special birthday we booked 5 cabins for family and friends to join me for togetherness and ocean front fun at Surf Beach Holiday Park.
From day 1 of reserving the cabins the staff could not do enough to make the stay perfect in every way. The friendly assistance and can do attitude and care made me feel like we were amongst even more family and friends. No request made was blocked-- the staff are amazing.
Belinda particularly went beyond the call of duty to assist with a slight reservation hiccup made by our group and helped it to be the perfect outcome.
The team even went the extra yard to shower me with hugs and lovely gifts on my special day --one I will never forget. They were so very understanding and joined in the surprise and delight of my daughter secretly arriving all the way from W.A. - honking her horn as she approached through the boom gate to the pool gates standing on her land cruiser holding a cascade of balloons like a scene from Priscilla Queen of the desert/ final scene from Pretty woman!! I was blown away!!! How accommodating was that!!!
The cabins were clean, suitably stocked with essentials and roomy with excellent ocean views. The grounds kept tidy with ample parking on site or nearby and the pool area which we decorated and used for our Saturday celebration was perfect. Our 5 nt stay was superb in every way and much of it due to the hospitality of the owners and their fabulous staff. We now have a home away from home place to visit --and we will certainly return again. Thank you .

Seems all attention must go to cabins as caravan sites are not very good.
Sites VERY uneven & not maintained. (Lots of excuses in previous reviews but we've stayed in enough parks to know if any effort has gone in to keeping sites in good condition)
We were there 4 days & didn't see anyone tending the grounds the whole time. Lawns very long & grounds generally shabby. Old car battery left at base of tree. No one noticed it.
Amenities are hosed out rather than mopped so have soaking pools of water almost all the time.
All Rubbish bins kept by amenities block rather than dotted around park. A bit inconvenient having to walk your Rubbish over there each time.
Great location is the only thing going for it.

Thank you for your review, do wonder if you are so unhappy why extend your stay also by your own admission in office you admitted the amenities smelt clean due to the strong cleaning products used, we are very disappointed that you were unhappy. You fail to mention even though you came in threatening to put a comment on this site prior to actually paying that our Manager, for the 2nd time that day, spent 6 hours scrubbing toilets. I thank you for your comments on the grounds, I will ensure your comments are passed onto our 3 girls who spent 5 hours in the gardens on Thursday and I will also pass on your comment to our mowing contractor who I believe was mowing the day you departed.

Good cabins in Kiama can be hard to find. Regardless of what you get, book it early. Surf Beach is a van and cabin park sandwiched on the bluff between Surf Beach and Kendalls Beach so you get the best of both worlds there with just a walk down the stairs on either end. Unfortunately on our visit some wag had decided to vandalise the pool by breaking of six bricks from the side, so the pool was unfortunately closed for the duration of our stay while this was repaired.

Surf Beach HP is also quite handy to the Kiama township and is a leisurely 1.5km stroll to the Blowhole. A great place to have a few days by the beach with the family. Cabins were clean and everything worked. Service was with a smile and they had no problems with a 11am late checkout.

I wish I could have given a higher rating, but some aspects just can't be ignored.

Firstly, I had no problems with staff - they are excellent, friendly and helpful. Also the amenities were excellent, great kitchen and pool. I think the problem with this Holiday Park lies with the Kiama Council itself.

In short, if you want a cabin, this is a superb Park. Walking distance to town (not short though - 1.7 km to the centre of town) and a swimming beach within quick reach on both sides. Kiama itself is a great place to explore and restaurants are abundant, although Kiama is fast beginning to suffer from 'discovery' by wealthy city people, as has happened on the north NSW coast. It is losing it's homely feel, but I must say, they are keeping up a good fight, so the place is still a pleasure to visit.

If you want to camp, caravan or campervan, might be better to look elsewhere, as the area is cramped and poorly landscaped for such use. Grass sites are in poor condition and terribly uneven, while cement sites are alongside the road and for some odd reason, they have cemented the whole site, instead of the standard half-site cementing. This means you can't use a stand-alone tarp, and need to use an awning extension, implying you can't drive off for the day without packing the awning away.

We looked at the caravan site on the next (south) beach, and it's powered sites are much better, but unfortunately they will suffer from the heat, being in the valley instead of on the hill with Surf Beach Park.

The location is superb, and if you take a cabin (which are not over-priced) or have booked ahead one of the few good powered sites, then this is a wonderful place.

The reason I blame the council, is because it is obvious they have poured in a lot of money to build fancy new cabins right around the best views, while relegating the campers to cramped and crappy conditions. Basically they are stating in no uncertain terms, if you have the money to book a cabin, we welcome you with open arms, otherwise you can suffer in your jocks - we don't care. They have done the same on the park down on the next beach - all the cabins hog the prime views and the powered sites can put up with anything left over behind. Such a different attitude to the beautiful Caravan Park at Bermagui.

We stayed in both a powered site and a cabin. I can really recommend the cabins - they are superb. What a pity the council didn't spend some money landscaping the powered sites, but then, I get the feeling Kiama is courting the wealthy patron, which is perhaps one reason they will probably lose their fight to remain un-amalgamated.

Thank you for your comments, We are very sorry that you weren't happy with the sites on the park but please rest assured Kiama Council are not responsible for the grounds, we are on a hill so some of our sites are a bit uneven and we have had a very busy season with our sites being 100% full every night for the last 4 months, this also gives the park a little cramped feeling. We have taken your comments on board and will look at how we can try and even the sites up without having to use more concrete. I really have to stress though that this is a family park and both council and our management team enjoy welcoming all people no matter their station in life, not only to our park but our beautiful town. I do hope you'll visit us again in the future and once again I thank you for your comments.

Recently we stayed for a weekend at the Surf Beach Holiday Park. We had a powered grass site which we found very uneven and had to find several bricks to place under one of the caravan legs. The grass around the site was not mowed and in places very long. The other concrete pad site look great and level and in a better location but I think we got the leftovers.

The amenities block was very good and very clean however in the camp kitchen the sink was blocked and it could not be used to wash up our plates. The pool was also kept well and clean.

We were advised by security one night not to leave the pushbikes around as they would be stolen. Security were abrupt and not very people friendly.

The manager was very nice and helpful and the park itself in the main was clean.

We had our kids with us but came away from the park thinking that the park itself was more directed to the grey nomades rather than a family with kids. If the concrete pad sites are not available I would not recommend staying on the grass sites as they are very uneven.

Thank you for your review, we are sorry you found our sites uneven. The park being on a headland overlooking the magnificent shimmering ocean sometimes does create a little issue with slopes on the sites, but thank you for your comments, after a very busy season we need to put some more soil and turf down hopefully this will help with levelling the sites again. We do hope to see you and your family return one day. I am sorry that you found our security unfriendly, they do aim to prevent trouble by asking that your personal possessions be away.
