      Accommodation in Auckland

      Auckland Yesterday

      Dear VTers, can you recommend me a decent accommodation in Auckland? I mean, we'll be travelling quite on a bugdet so no Hilton , please. A small guesthouse will be perfect. Or maybe local company or trustworthy website offering this type of accommodation. Thank you in advance for your advice.

      Hi,

      Will be travelling to Auckland for a wedding at Waiuku in April. The following is a rough itinerary. Would appreciate any suggestions and tips:

      Arriving Auckland on Wednesday 2pm. Staying in Auckland city.
      Thursday morning, renting a car from the city and leaving for Waiuku for the wedding. Staying over night in Waiuku.
      Friday morning, booked tour at Spellbound caves. Thereafter, driving to Taupo and staying there for the night.
      Saturday morning, drive to Rotorau and Agrodome. Drive back to Auckland and staying the night in Auckland.
      Sunday morning return rental car. Depart Auckland Sunday night - shuttle to airport.

      1) How are the road conditions? Will a normal car do or do I need to rent a 4x4?
      2) Driving from Waiuku to Spellbound Caves, is it easy to find?
      3) What is the weather like in April? Is it quite chilly in Waiuku and Taupo?
      4) Any coffee places along the way?
      5) If i have half a day, with no rental car, would you suggest Devonport or Waiheke?

      Many thanks!

      Hot Water Beach Sep 25, 2011 at 8:40 AM

      We visited the Coramandel earlier this year 2011 and somewhere near Hot water beach in North island, we visited a craft centre/gallery that had lots of lovely colourful ceramics and fountains and a shop near the entrance selling ornaments, sculptures and jewellery, some made of nz greenstone. I don't know why I didn't get a business card, but it was a flying visit. Anyone able to help me on this please? Whereabouts and name of place would be good. Can't get back in a hurry from the uk, so help would be appreciated.

      2 days on the Coromandel

      Kuaotunu Nov 9, 2008 at 10:44 AM

      I would like a tip on a good place to stay for 2 days, 12/25 & 12/26 2008, on the Coromandel peninsula. I was at Kuaotunu in December of 1985 and had lunch on the beach. I remember they were selling waterfront lots on the long sandy beach to the north for3,500 to4,500 NZ$ at the time. I want to hike around the area and am looking for a comfortable place anywhere around the noth end.
