We loved the walk up the hill to see the views, as grandparents we were the first to explore, but piked out when it became a competition for the fastest to the top and back!
We did christen the wetsuits we bought on Trade Me, especially for the colder water. Boredom never entered the equation. The children loved racing around...
If you want a perfect retreat, by a lake, in a forest, surrounded by birdsong, with the most hospitable hosts, access to kayaks and a marvellous boat trip with the owners...go here.
