    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.

    We had a guided tour of the grounds with a direct descendent of one of the treaty signers. We were the only people on the tour, and it was really interesting to get her perspective on the treaty and life today for the Maoris. She finished the tour with ...

    Dinner in our friend’s apartment was wonderful. We ordered through room service and at right on 7.30 in they came with trays of food. If we thought breakfast was a performance dinner was a whole different experience. It was a wonderful end to the most amazing experience. We went to sleep with the ship moving around quite a bit, the first time it had happened in over three weeks! ...

    ... of NZ wines from Marlborough and from Hawkes Bay but did not know they produced wine in Northland. We think they are probably all relatively small producers and sell only into the domestic market. The winery was owned by an Englishman and we tasted six wines including one which was like a port. That wine and one of the others was very good. The second stop was at the Stone Store. It is an old stone building which is a rarity in NZ. It houses a shop ...

    ... ship didn't sink! Captain Rob then entertained us with tales of his days as a prospector of sapphires in Australia. Nothing like a bit of an adventure on the high sea! A grand day out. Safely back on dry land we take off our pirates' hats and, rather than heading for the tavern for some grog, returned "home" for a nice cuppa before heading off to Long Beach as the sun is setting. Back to just being tourists ...

    ... the boards out and then we had to climb up a huge sand dune and I mean huge. It took me ages to get to the top - and I had heights. It was a real effort and every so often I was going to give up - but wasn't sure how I'd get on walking or rolling back down. Finally made it to the top - completely out of breath and thought OMG - how am I going to get back down. I watched as quite a few took off - you have to put the board down - kneel ...
