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.

... comes out and with her advanced mind, maneuvers to get her arm in there but 'just' not long enough. With the new method, I get my arm I there, turn the key and walk in - B&E !!!

... effective brake using his feet to slow but also stir up a cloud of sand on the way down. We went from sand duning to tour bus beach cruising. The bus drove on the beach for 40-50 miles before pulling back onto the road. So awesome to be on the beach with views for such a distance. A long 8 hour day, but so worth it for Cape Reinga and the ...
... our next stop back on the mainland was only a 30 minute ride away so lunch stayed firmly in place!
As we pulled up to Russell (located directly opposite Paihia) our driver informed us that in the 1800’s it used to be known as ‘Hell Hole of the Pacific’ due to it being a stop-over for whalers who disregarded the law, set up ***** houses and ran riot, an altogether unsavoury lot by all ...
Today we went on the She's a Lady sailing charter around the Bay of Islands. A wonderful warm sunny day. We were out almost all day with a small group of about 12 folks from all over the world. We took turns at the wheel, hoisting the sails, etc. Stopped for a few hours in a cove and enjoyed snorkelling, swimming, a hike up a grassy hill and lunch. On the way back we were ...
... and Ben, one of the crew told us a story about Mission bay which could be seen in the distance. Years back some French people were partying on the island against the Maoris wishes, so in the night the Maoris invaded the island and slaughtered all 27 of them and ate them... In the cove sat under the milky way, we saw florescent algae, as we shook our hands in the water it glowed like fairy dust and as we paddled it left glowing fairy trails in the water. It was like ...
