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.

Coromandel Cottage  - Romantic Rustic - Sea views

 View was great. Two living spaces great for our family. This cottage was perfect. Our only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer. 


 Superb location. Private. Beautiful. Tranquil. Charming settler cottage high in the forest range.
