Paul is an amazing host, welcoming and advising on anything and everything local, if you want info, and I did. Offering shovels for Hot Water Beach, and free kayaks, I wish I had more planned more time in the Coromandel, (2 nights not enough for me). Free Wifi, much appreciated, plus the use of laundry. Great location to access the local shops, and the walk up Mt Paku (ask about the mount's cat).
The chalet was spotless, immaculate, I'd give it an 11 out of 1-10! (I even asked Paul what cleaning products they used).
I wish I had one more night, as the morning I went to Cathedral Cove, there was NO parking, what do you do? Go earlier? which I would have tried, given another day.
Driving the peninsula is time consuming, (winding/twisting roads around the hills/mountains). So, I enjoy basing in one area, unpacking and venturing out for the day, returning to cook or eat locally. Loved my first trip to the Coromandel and would return there and to Blue Water Motel.
