Very well equipped rooms (kitchen with cutlery, pots, etc.). Spacious bathroom, balcony. Free Wi-Fi.

Which brings us to now, going to be heading out on a Waka (long boat) with a Maori guy then to dinner. The waka was good massive canoe, you go out to an area and pick mussels and pipi's (our size mussels). You then head to another beach were we cooked them and had with wine, cheese ...
... I told her to slowly lower herself down and swim on top very carefully and not to look down. Did she listen? No! She looked down and panicked so much she lost the ability to think rationally. Unable to control her arms she looked like a drowned mole rat but she was in fact having an anxiety attack. I couldn't help but laugh so I swam over and took her hands to bring her out to where it was deeper. Being as dramatic as me she demanded that she wanted a boat to come ...
