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.

... although any suggestion the cliff matched the Bard's profile seems a little far-fetched. On the way back we saw a sign helpfully pointing us in the right direction, just in case!

... busy, loads of campers were squeezed in to a relativelty small site. We're still not sure how some of the campers work. We've seen many little campers with 4 adults in it, by little I mean little Mitsubishi type vans, a lot smaller than a transit. It has a little pod added to the top of it raising the height slightly, and making it look even more unstable than it did before, but it must be a hell of a squeeze in there, probably feels like sleeping in a coffin. A camper ...
... as you take your time as it has vertical drops without any barriers”, Mike decided to commence the extremely narrow, extremely slippery and extremely steep route! With a few tuts and huffs, and a very disapproving wife, Mike finally came to his senses and we turned back, making our ‘short-cut’ not very short! The downside to avoiding this road and taking the much safer State Highway 25, however, appeared that we missed a few ...
... all night and just relaxed. Our $10 dinner was enormous and came complete with a beer and wine delivered to our door. We never made it to the soda hot pools, the whole reason we cycled to te aroha, but I never felt cheated. After a great nights sleep, a filling continental breakfast we slipped out the front door and onto our bikes to return to Waihi. The onto the bikes thing is a lesson in how to work through the pain barrier. My husband tried sitting on one cheek at a ...
The 2 main attractions here, are the 'hot beach' and cathedral cove. I'll get to the latter one later. Cathedral cove is the largest in a series of coves along this coast. Think of a large arch, a tunnel even, with sand at the bottom, the sea flowing through it at high tide and a spacious walk-through when it's not. Me and Benny did the 40minute walk to get there. Simon and Albert went for the watertaxi.
