We had a fantastic stay at the Waterfront Suites and wish we could have stayed longer. The suite was well appointed and spotless, the staff friendly and helpful. The four of us (two adults, 10 and 13 year old children), had plenty of room in this two bedroom, two bath suite with kitchen, dining area, and living room. A washer and dryer were included - such a bonus for a vacation with kids. Great location and plenty of covered parking. The outdoor swimming pool was chilly - but it is almost winter and the kids enjoyed trying it out. We didn't pay extra for the view and most likely were given what was considered the worst room - the back windows were very close to a private home - but it didn't dampen our enthusiasm. Our two complaints were relatively minor - we were unable to use the purchased internet in the room (so they didn't charge us) and we needed to use portable heaters provided as it was rather chilly.

... my final 3 runs. You'll see how fast I went!! After this we drove to taupo and arrived mid afternoon. We took things easy as we were walking to tongariro alpine crossing and walking up mount doom the next day (pronounced mount nadahewi). Got a taxi to a hot spring then entered one of the local rivers and chilled in there for an hour or so. Quite strange having the freezing river mixing with boiling hot volcanic water! Tuesday 17th 04.45 get up today as we ...
... him catch a few small ones. He was a nice kiwi bloke, to be honest the majority of the kiwi's I've met are really friendly. To get to pontoon he paddled out with his gear on a paddle board, this was a funny sight! Having decided to book a fishing trip for Kingfish on the Wednesday, I spent the rest of the day chilling by the beach listening to music. Wednesday 11th Feb, Had another early start for my trip and was at the pier for just after 6 this morning. The weather ...
... on sand which was Cathedral Cove and now a hole in the rock on an island just off the mainland in the Pacific.
We looked smug and enjoyed the zoom back to Otehei beach. We then had the choice of the ferry taking us back to Paihia or stopping off at Russell and getting the normal ferry back in a couple of hours, so plumped for that. The yellow, normal boat ferry, had just arrived so we thought we'd treat ourselves to a warm comfy half hour ferry trip to Russell. Now I ...
... off the afternoon before driving back to Pahia taking part in our first action activity of the trip - sand dune surfing! This involved treking up the enormous dunes, which was a struggle in itself - I likened it to walking up stairs that keep collapsing under foot after each step- and then surfing down on your stomach at high speed. On our return to the car we discretely (or so we thought) stripped off in attempt to remove the sand ...
... us on a lovely scenic drive... to nowhere in the search for Rawhiti. Down gravel roads, round 25 degree bends, to nowhere. We are learning not to use the white roads. Once we established our position, we got petrol where the lovely attendant recommended a $12 ferry to bypass a 50km gravel road to Paihia. We got to our hostel, Seabeds, and discovered a mini ...
