Kingseat is a rural community between Karaka and Waiuku located on the Manukau Harbour in Auckland, New Zealand.

Kingseat was originally part of Patumahoe and was not actually recognised as a specific area until a mental hospital known as Kingseat Hospital was built there in February 1931. The local area around it then became generally became known as Kingseat. While still predominantly rural, with dairy farms and thoroughbred studs, as of 2016 large blocks of land are being sold off for subdivision and commercial development. Local infrastructure is minimal, with the nearest shops being at Patumahoe (seven minutes away) or Karaka (ten minutes away).
