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.

... 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 ...
... 10.15. Our plan was to take “309 Road”, one of New Zealandīs most scenic roads crossing from west to east. According to the tourist map and brochures dedicated to the Coromandel Peninsula there were supposed to be a few sights en route including Castle Rock, 309 Kauri Grove or Waiau Falls.
We would love to do so called Castle Rock Walk, a 90-minute hike through New Zealandīs untouched nature at which end awaits you wonderful rock formations. However, ...
... and was then the site of the first permanent British settlement (they nicknamed Russell, "The Hellhole of the Pacific". Interesting). It's also here that the Treaty of Waitangi was drawn up and signed on 6th February 1840. Our day-long boat cruise doubled-up as the local postal service, zig-zagging us across the Bay, visiting many of the scattered outer islands. But our first stop-off was with an enormous pod of dolphins, who are ...
... many hot water pools while looking up at the Mount - a lovely way to start the day. We then grabbed our hiking boots and decided to mount the Mount! Now it is a fairly steep trek to the top and we had to stop a few times on the way (to see the views that is) so it's rather embarrassing when herds of locals are effortlessly jogging past you to the top, barely breaking a sweat. Imagine this was your daily run - wow! The views were as ever for NZ - simply spectacular. ...
I experienced the epitome of traveling on this Monday; it took me 14 hours, 3 trains, 2 buses and a plane to get from Campbell Bay to Sydney. It was well worth it though because I was heading up to see some more friends from home; Kay, Ian and their 4 month old baby Theodore. I met up with them in the small town of Katoomba which is located in the blue mountains. Unfortunately it was raining so much that we were literally in ...
