I highly recommend spending time around the Whitianga area. The town itself has a huge number of great bars, restaurants and cafes including "Salt" overlooking the boat harbour. The beaches in the area including Simpsons Beach are stunning and the trip south to Cathederal Cove is a must do.
I stayed at the Beachfront Resort. The proprietors were extremely helpful and welcoming. Our unit overlooked the beach and with everything we needed we had the best stay. The resort has a grassed area running down to the beach and offers a perfect and safe place for children. It also includes a bbq area where parents can sit and watch out over the beach, as well as spa area. I would definetly go back and stay again.
