TravelPod Member ReviewsBlue Water Motel Tairua
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.

Whitianga, Coromandel & Thames FRIDAY began with the inevitable grey clouds after overnight rain but promised sunshine so we set off to explore the top of the Peninsular. WHITIANGA is about 1 hour north of where we are staying, but again lots of slow winding road through the hills. The previous day's tourist boats had been cancelled because of the swell and wind but today they were back on so we joined a boat out to Cathedral Cove and other bays, ...
Once awake, which wasn't early, and once the curtains had been pulled back we could see the sky pretending as if nothing had happened yesterday. Clear with only a few scattered white clouds. The rugby players gave up trying to roll our camper over at some point during the night.
The rest of the morning was lazy. We stopped a short drive down the beach, near a telephone box that had WiFi access, and did a little research on the internet for our upcoming travels, also to ...
... achieved success. Not only did we have our own private spa, but we also had an answer for future interview questions of “a time when you didn’t give up”. Our spa must have been good too, because as soon as we stood up to leave, it was stolen and claimed for somebody else –like proud architects we departed the beach.

It’s not the whole beach that is hot

... a couple of times. To cap it all we got lost - never saw any views- and ended up on a private road. I didn't think they'd shoot us but we might have got arrested for trespassing but at least we'd have got a ride. A walk that should have taken us 1 hour took kua more than 2!!
back at our camp - got talking to a guy who had just come back from fishing and he gave us a large bag of snapper that he had caught and filleted.
... and inconsequential place, except that it's the home of the annual Highland Games! And our one night in Waipu happened to coincide with the Auckland Centre Pipe Band Contest. The sleepy main street was closed for the competing bands and their bagpipes. Sadly not sure who won as we had to be in Tairua by dinner time. Tairua is on the east coast of the Coromandel peninsula and we pulled up at our latest hostel by late afternoon, in time ...
