  • Set in a private setting with large lawns and trees just minutes to town and beaches.

Our home is surrounded by olive trees, natives.

You can hear the sound of the river, a nice retreat from the busy township.

Views are to the surrounding mountains and bush in the distance.

The tap water is from a natural spring which is feed through ultraviolet purifiers, no chemicals in the drinking taps, shower, bath or the natural swimming pool in the river.

This is a lovely conducive environment for retreats. We the family offer options of yoga, meditation and healing with trained and certified teachers and practitioners.

With this in mind our home is not suitable for party goers and the like.

Just minutes away you have all that Whangamata has to offer great cafes, restaurants, RSA, New World Supermarket, shops, harbour and surf beach with two golf courses.

Hahei and Hot Water Beach are just over an hour drive as is Tauranga and Mt Maunganui. Pleasant, quiet hot pools at Athenree are a short 40 mins drive near Waihi Beach.

There is so many beautiful beaches on the Coromandel Peninsular it is really a beautiful area to come to heal, rest and recuperate and take 'time out'.

Alternatively 2 mins drive up the end of the road is the DOC bush and hiking trails to Wentworth water fall and beyond.

We have plenty of off road parking space.

The property has a family cottage down from the main house in the orchard which is used by family. This area is not available to guests and occasionally at certain times of the year we may have tents on the property.

Special conditions: The immediate area around the stream is unsuitable for campfires, fireworks, shooting, glass bottles or parties on the property. Only the lawn around the house and down to the stream is for guest use. No dogs or pets are allowed on the property. The bond is refundable, at the owner's discretion, if the property is left in the same clean and tidy condition as it was found. Exceeding the maximum of 5 people risks termination of contract. Check in after 4pm. Check out before 10am

  • The house was very comfortable- perfect for a family trip away

    The house was very comfortable- perfect for a family trip away. I was a bit disappointed that we had to stick to the boundaries of the garden as I specifically booked the place so that the kids could have a big place to run around. Also there was a possum trap located so close to the house and that wasn’t great.

    We loved this property, felt at home immediately. Comfortable, homely and in such a beautiful spot! Looking forward to the road being tar sealed hopefully for future stays! (usually wouldn't be concerned but as we were there for beach hop we were driving old classic cars).
