We went around an island and through an island cave. A while ago, a Maori chief was sailing on his boat, and he saw the island. He cried “ …

North again to Tairua

A travel blog entry by phil100652


As we came out of our apartment this morning, we bumped into the two women who had been staying in the apartment next to ours and one of them (Wendy Graham) was an ex-colleague of mine at Royal Insurance in Liverpool. It never ceases to amaze me how often that happens. We could quite easily have missed one another and never known. I wonder how often that happens too. After a quick chin wag, we left Rotorua and arrived a few ...

... green" so he got a crane and people up into the tree to handpaint each one of the thousands and thousands of leaves.

There were over 50 hobbit holes, and some of them even had smoking chimneys! We ended up at the Green Dragon Pub, which was so neat inside, and we got to enjoy samples of South Farthing Ale. We also heard about the Lord of the Rings Ale, which is 0.5% and was brewed for filming, so that people ...

Coromandel Penninsula

... was shockingly cold. Finn and I screamed in pain and shock every time we went into the water. We could only last for a minute or so. Ty zoomed around on the beach and we all had good fun. Also en route home was a fun Kiwi playground with crazy equipment. One device spun you around in an elliptical pattern that was quite crazy. You would never see any of these devices in an ...

    We had such a great stay here that I couldn't wait to write a review. While we did not get to meet the lovely Natasha, Paul was definitely lovely, helpful, informative, friendly, and flexible. This is a great location, very close to incredible scenery, restaurants, grocery store, and playgrounds. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which was not roomy but functional and extremely clean. The kitchenette was well stocked. We were very impressed how thoroughly the room was cleaned each day. Being able to borrow shovels and towels for nearby Hot Water Beach was great. The kids loved warming up in the spa pool. Plenty of room for hanging wet clothing outside was yet another bonus. While it was pricier than some other options, we're extremely happy that we stayed here.
