Modern studio unit on The QUEEN CHARLOTTE DRIVE

 Very clean and tidy. Everything we needed and wonderful view. Generous hosts gave us grapes from their garden and offered other fresh produce as well. 

Suburban House, in quiet area.

 Lovely green setting with excellent indoor and outdoor entertaining. The beds were SOOO comfortable as were the pillows and duvets! The number of bedrooms was perfect for being able to re-unite with family members normally spread across North Island. 

Peaceful one bedroom cottage in a rural setting

 Absolutely first rate facility for the family. Really enjoyed our stay! Clean, friendly and close to Hastings. 

Coromandel Orchard Cottage

 Nice cottage is quiet rural location with easy access into the township. 

Hairy Hobbit Eco Cottage
