Parsloe's Cottage-Coromandel Town

 Absolutely loved this cottage, was a beautiful position, peaceful and idyllic. Well equipped and extremely clean and modern. Everything was of a very high standard, we would definitely return. Lionel was a great host and we very much appreciated the jam and delicious passion fruit from the garden. Driving Creek Railway was well worth a visit and within walking distance. Beautiful area to explore at your doorstop. 

Beach House on Reserve - Lower unit

 Lovely place to stay with a great outlook and the beach so close. Layout of the house is a bit strange with access to the second bedroom through the bathroom. Also the foldout sofa bed was not at all comfortable and didn't have bedding provided - we had intended to split up our children (11yr old boy and 14yr old girl) but couldn't because of this. Other than that it was a great stay in a great place.
