Bay of Plenty


We arrive in Auckland on 2nd Jan 2008 for 7 days only and would like to see as much as we can with our children, therefore, we want to stay in a place where is quite central but somewhere that we could come back to and relax and to us a beach would be ideal. We are emmigrating to oz and are stopping off in NZ on our way back to UK. We will be hiring a car and will pay upto £75 to £100 a night for hotel. Many thanks for feedback.

Mt Maunganui or Papamoa (side by side beaches) would be an ideal base BUT you are here at the very height of the season and it may be unlikely that you'll find anywhere to stay (and also once you stay there you might want to revisit where you're emmigrating to!)

It alos may be better to rent a bach/holiday house for the week rather than a hotel/motel. Have a look at these sites;
