Response from Elspeth:
Hi Eric Thank you for your helpful feedback. We have updated our description to make it more clear that the cottages are situated on the shore of a tidal inlet and not the open sea, and have also added more photos of the views from the peninsula at low tide. The tide comes in and out twice a day so the water and views are constantly changing. The size of the tides also vary according to the phase of the moon and there are timetables and other information for the best times to kayak and paddle board in the cottage information folders. Sorry we didn’t get to meet you while you were here, we were on holiday last week. Hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday in NZ, best regards, Elspeth (to clarify the location for future guests, Karaka is 3.7km to Mapua village, 5 minutes by car and 10 to 15 minutes if cycling.)
