Luxury Accommodation for 2

 Terrific place. Beyond the idyllic location, the accommodation was beautifully kept and adorned with nice "homey" touches like ground coffee, hot chocolate, and dry wood and paper for the wood stove. Irma and Kees are sweet people: there to help but as far from intrusive as one can be. 

Beach House at Hahei Coromandel

 Nice and quiet but close to amenities 

Beautiful cottage with stunning views.

 The cottage is absolutely beautiful - comfortable, well decorated and well appointed. The views are stunning and the grounds are lovely. We would stay again - and stay longer next time!
