The Black Blonde Bach

 In a word, bliss. I am still feeling aglow after staying at this amazing bach. The decor was gorgeous and the bach itself was just so well stocked. We didn't want for anything. We also loved the outdoor spaces at the bach - including both the deck and covered patio. The location of the bach was the perfect jumping off point for many of the region's lovely beaches and Whitianga's wharf is simply beautiful with many yummy cafes nearby, including the French Fig and Cafe Nina. 

Coromandel Orchard Cottage

 Orchard Cottage was a wonderful place to spend a few nights. It is located just outside of town and is lovely and quiet. There is everything that you need including the gladwrap and we were most comfortable. So nice to stay somewhere like this where bringing your small dog is ok.
