Six Nights at Takapuna Beach Park in ensuite Cabana

Wonderful Place

I do so love it here.

Takapuna Beach Park, where I am for six nights, is right on the beach. At the front, just off of the sand, are three or four rows of sites for motor homes, campers and trailers. At the back, and a bit elevated, where I am, are a half-dozen cabana sites.

At the moment I am sitting inside, looking out at the water; Devonport coast and beyond it, downtown Auckland, not very far away.

An exceptionally good restaurant is 1-2 minutes away, adjacent to the park. No need, even to go onto a city street to reach it.

The address here is 22 The Promenade and the (domestic) phone is +64 9 489 7909

For my last three nights (Dec 23, 24, 25), I move back to the Takapuna International Motor Lodge (contact info provided previously).

My return flight departs/arrives Dec. 26 (one day gained coming back). The Air NZ flight gets into L.A. in the afternoon, followed by a United flight from L.A. to Denver that should get me back to my apartment (via limo) around 10 or 11 pm.

Thus far it has been a wonderful trip, but getting back to "normal" will be way-good, also. I am becoming a bit road-weary but remain healthy and in positive spirits.
