    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.

    ... and try to find a place to dig, but it’s a little tricky – the best places have gone, and some parts of the beach are scoldingly hot due to the water being pumped up (too hot even to walk on!) We find a place and start digging, and eventually team up with another couple who turn out to be from York – small world! We finish digging and enjoy the nice hot water bath for a while and the conversation with the other couple, then get a little ...

    ... to the top of Mt Paatu for a stunning view of the local beaches and tidal estuary below. Tairua seemed the like the perfect place to slow down for a few days. The hostel overlooked the bay and positively encouraged you to do very little. But with the east coast beaches so close, we did have a go at body-boarding on Ocean Beach. Unlike in Bondi, these waves were a little kinder, and the beach a little emptier, so we pretended like we ...

    ... than the bright white you see in the photographs. We did exclaim on a number of occasions that it looked better in photographs. Anyway I can't complain too much, the sun came out and we spent two days on Manly beach. Manly seems to be the surfers escape from the business centre of Sydney, there is certainly a cool vibe with a lot of young foreigners working down there, as opposed to the business men and women in downtown ...

    ... the east coast again, halfway along there is a Railway tunnel of 1070m each way that is now part of the rail trail cycle route. As you can see from the dodgy photos there is very little lighting in there but we still had a walk through, once out the other side we were able to walk right down to the river and get into the base of the gorge before realising with no sun cream that the 30 minutes we had been out there was probably enough so back into the tunnel and back to the car ...

    ... site by 7.30am. We had a short walk on the beach and enjoyed an evening by another river estuary, cheerfully waving and saying, "Hi" to a fair number of none too friendly locals. It's noticeable that on the Coromandel that camper vans are not welcomed, possibly because some of the sites are over the road from million dollar houses who no doubt don't like having their views interrupted. We got up and were out of the designated space by ...
