Te Mata Lodge has only four self-contained cottages which are all separate and private in 10 acres of native bush, garden and rocky stream. Guests have free use of the BBQs, kayaks, wifi, river shoes for gemstone collecting and gold panning. This listing is for the two bedroom cottage, but there are also 2 two-storyed chalets and 1 one bedroom cottage - each with decks looking out over the river. Vistors are totally independent - cottage is fully self-contained - but owners live on site and are available for assistance if required. Cottage is serviced daily (unless we are requested otherwise), with fresh towels every two days.

Te Mata is centrally located on the Coromandel Peninsula and we provide helpful advise and a booklet with information about day trips and outings - as well as are happy to make bookings. Thames is 20 minutes to the south, Coromandel is 30 minutes north and Hot Water Beach is less than an hour to the eat (and we provide spades for digging you own hot pool in the sand).

Fishing and seafood gathering (mussels, pipis and oysters) at Mussel Point - just a few minutes from the Lodge.

Tapu, just 4 ks down the coast road has a pub (families welcome in the restaurant or garden bar), shop and art gallery.

Special conditions: Smoking allowed outside only. Sorry no pets.

  • Very pleasant and peaceful

    Very pleasant and peaceful. The lodge was spacious allowing the three teenagers to be well separated from the adults.

    A beautiful spot , well located to explore ther Coromandel Peninsular. The cottage was clean and comfortable. The compendium contained comprehensive information about the area, set out clearly and with great suggestions. Would recommend this very peaceful spot to any age group - there is something fir everyone!

  • About 25 mins drive up north from Thames

    About 25 mins drive up north from Thames. Into the Te Mata valley, down a 4WD track, you are totally away from civilisation. Run by a nice family. No real neighbours. Peacefull location. Nice lodge with space for living, dining. not much food options around, so get stocked and they have cooking facility and bbq on sit. River flows next to property. They have kayaks to use. No cell coverage and wifi signal limited. So if you want to relax and not get disturbed, get lost to this place. Good walkin
