I have already been given advice through this forum and it has been very helpful. My husband and I have almost completed our Honeymoon itinerary for three weeks in the South and the North Island during January 2007, but we have still to decide on where in the North Island to spend 4 or 5 days to completely relax before flying out of Auckland towards Hong Kong. Ideally, we would like to stay in the Coromandel or Bay of Plenty area, but we don't want anywhere too "touristy". We would love a place near a beautiful beach and within walking distance of restaurants. I know it is asking a lot, but it would be great if someone could give a personal recommendation for comfortable quiet accommodation. Since it is our honeymoon, I would love to end our New Zealand visit on a high note.
