          Sorry would not recommend this place, the noise was abysmal as we were closest to a very busy road. Clean tidy, fairly old but not what you need after a long day of travel.

          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.

          ... tunnels high up on the mountain side, with here and there 'windows' out into the gorge. The children had torches and were not afraid to head off up side tunnels to see what was there.

          We had to return the same way, so picnicked in a ruined bit of some mine machinery and building before starting the walk up the south side of Karangahake Gorge. The highway hugs the cliff on the north side above the river, and trucks and cars hurtle past up the bends. On the walkers side, ...

          After Bryan had finished his swimming session with Adam and the Sea Walkers, we set off on a beautiful drive to Hot water beach.

          We had our little Toyota car and drove south from Auckland and then East and north again. It was only a small car but it was doing a great job of running us around managing the hills quite well especially with our heavy bags in the boot too.

          The scenery was beautiful all the way. Wherever we looked there were rolling green hills.

          ... at least it was a pleasant walk, and there were a few smaller goldmine shafts that I passed that you could walk down (pitch black with an inch or two of water at the bottom though!).

          We continued the drive towards Auckland. The roads flattening and straighting out, something we haven't experienced much of in New Zealand. We eventually stop at Kaiaua. We stopped at a Kaiaua when we were in the East Cape, this was a different Kaiaua, just a name sake.

          What a way to end my trip - we went to the Lost Springs thermal hot pools (38 degrees to 41 degrees) for a soak and rest and relaxation!

          ... was not far from here where we encountered the extremely happy, extremely chatty and extremely helpful petrol station staff. We pulled up at the pump to be greeted by a lady in a high-visibility jacket. She didn’t seem to have any particular purpose, other than to smile at and chat to customers. Mike filled the ‘beast’ up and went inside to pay. Mike was gone for almost 20 minutes, with no other customers coming or going I did start to get a little concerned. There ...
