What an amazing vacation! My partner, myself and my parents (4 of us in all) carefully researched our options before deciding on where to stay during our highly anticipated trip to New Zealand. Luckliy for us, we chose the Waihi Beach Lodge for our stay in Waihi Beach on the North Island. Everything was perfect! The rooms were beautiful, Ali and Greg were the 'hosts with the most", and location (across from the beach) couldn't have been more perfect! From the moment we arrived the lodge owners (Ali and Greg) did an excellent job of making us feel at home at their lodge. They are extremely friendly and sociable people and can give great recommendations of restaurants and activities in the area. Actually, we ended up sitting down with them and they helped us re-direct our remaining travel plans on the North Island. This was a great advantage to us! Following their advice we ened up seeing some spectacular sites that we would have never even know about without their help (thanks Ali and Greg!) Also, their breakfasts are a MUST! - They provide a full breakfast that was our favorite on the entire New Zealand trip. Be sure to request Ali's muffins! She gave us the recipe so we make them at home now. Yummy! Thanks again Ali and Greg. We will definitely return someday - Next time we come to New Zealand, we plan to make it a much longer trip.
Take Care! Kevin, Michael and Kevin's mom and dad (Sandy and Dennis)
