 Just off the main road to the Coromandel township, so only a short drive for supplies, very private amazing place. We spent most of our time in the spa that had such a picturesque view and so relaxing with the sound of the native birds and rambling creek just a few feet away and lounging on the hammocks, the house is very inviting and all the comforts you would want. And at night with the outside lighting - beautful

 Private, breathtakingly beautiful and very romantic. Lots of small touches that made you feel like you were right at home, while enjoying a piece of heaven. The spa pool with the view was a definite winner. :)
