Gorgeous Golden BayIf you're into gorgeous beach scenery, take time to visit beautiful Golden Bay at the northern tip of the South Island.
Providing the beautiful coastline for both the Abel Tasman National Park and Kahurangi National Park, Golden Bay’s remoteness is one if its finest assets. From Motueka, it is rather a grueling drive over the Takaka Hill, the only way in and the only way out of Golden Bay by road. But the trip is worth it! Check out the plethora of local art and craft in the small towns, try fishing for salmon at Anatoki Salmon, stroll the long, languid beach at Pohara or sink your toes into the golden sand at Tata Beach. Bliss!

The car rental company was a breeze to work with.
Loved our stay at bed and breakfast in Manapouri
Needed a bit more time to make it to Milford sound, because so many people, parking took lots more time than what we considered needed and we did consider parking time.
I see you went to extra effort to provide hotels with views, when available, so that was very nice
Surprised Christchurch having such a slow recovery after hurricane and disappointed not the same city as we saw many years ago
Loved the people, all so nice and friendly
Matamata and Hobbiton definitely worth it, which really surprised me! Probably one of my top favorites of the trip
Sorry we didn’t have a cave tour booked at the cave on the north island
The most negative was my poor husband’s experience, his stay in the bunk house followed by his stay at the Holiday park…., he was exhausted from no decent night’s sleep and I needed his help with the driving. He slept in the van one night! I do not know if there was ANY alternative to this, but the holiday park stay was really bad, just across from the kitchen gathering/bathrooms, etc. …with all the kids it was a zoo….literally!! I could not hear myself talk while in the room.
Lake Tekapo gorgeous!
Oh the drive thru Arthur’s Pass, maybe it was a bit cloudy, but I was a tad disappointed that we were not able to see the views of Mt. Cook I remembered and wondered if that was the route you had intended?
We loved our time and we always treasure New Zealand as it is a very special place. You are so fortunate to live there!
Thank you for all your hard work and no way could I have done it without your help!
