Our family of 6 (four kids ranging from 14-23) will be staying in the area for a week over New Years. We're going to get a house and we're trying to decide whether staying in MM or Papamoa would be a better move during that time. We chose MM originally because the combination of beach and action happening in that area. Several of the Papamoa houses remaining available have better proximity to the beach, but I assume further from food, shopping, action the kids would like. I know it's pretty close to drive to MM from there, but I also understand it can be hard to find parking during this time. Any insights would be much appreciated. Thanks.
