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.

This turned ...
... with people from all nations creating dams and pools like their lives depended on it. All to be destroyed with the next big wave! It started off with people being all territorial but as bits got destroyed there was a huge team effort to create a wall at the front like a dam. I joined in for a bit but as one wave came in and breached the sides it became totally futile so I went to play in the ...
... from our journey is that petrol has got noticeably cheaper and cheaper the further north we have come and is now just over £1 a litre. Diesel is about 70 pence. The owners of the motel we are staying in for the next two nights are originally from Macclesfield. As for so many Brits who are now living and working in New Zealand, it all started with a holiday. They visited here about ten years ago, fell in love with ...
... themselves on the sand or in their pool, or made running repairs to the 'walls' to stop water from escaping. The immense heat on our bodies felt incredible, and the view of the beach as the waves crashed in the distance was pretty special. We opened our beers, relaxed and savoured this very special place.
The next day we visited Cathedral Cove and completed a scenic walk. Early afternoon we returned to Hot Water Beach, determined to ...
