Nestled 350 metres above Thornton Bay Beach – one of the most beautiful sandy beaches on the Coromandel you will find the upper unit amongst a backdrop of native bush. Sit on the large deck watching the tides change and listening to the ocean and the variety of bird life. This accommodation has amazing views from its large deck of the ocean and the Firth of Thames.

Golden Heights has everything you need for a comfortable stay. There are two double bedrooms housing a queen bed in the first room and a double bed, a double bunk and a single in the second room. There is also a double sofa bed in the lounge for the extended family. The unit is fully equipped with a full kitchen and laundry.

Located centrally it is just a 2 kilometre stroll along the beach to Te Puru store, selling all the necessities and also housing a takeaway shop. Tapu is 10 kms north along the gorgeous coastal road lined with the native pohutukawa and has a tavern which also does meals and Thames is 10 kms down the coast which has everything you would expect a medium sized town to have including Saturday morning markets and a movie theatre.

Go for a fish out on the Firth of Thames or off the rocks at the end of the beach. Golden Heights is a great place to experience the Coromandel – the activities are endless …

  • It was what it said on the label

    It was what it said on the label. We had a great and relaxing stay with excellent views. PS We liked your new shower curtain! (tee hee)

  • Up the hill from the beach with great views across the water

    Up the hill from the beach with great views across the water. Good kitchen provision (utensils, crockery etc), great oven (made bread and everything), comfortable beds, bath in bathroom. Some decor aspects quite dated, but its a Bach, so perfect! Stairs and hill wouldn't suit someone with mobility challenge. Have to boil water. On septic so need to consider regarding soaps etc. Previous complaints about cleanliness. We found it fine. Thanks! Would be happy to stay here again

    Great Location,Lovely views, plenty of room, everything you could need, lots of bed space (3xdoubles, 1x single). I enjoyed my stay and mean the following as constructive feedback only. I would say that it is in dire need of a good spring clean and a lick of paint. It was very dusty (thick in some places) and mould was apparent. Wallpaper stained and peeling. Shower curtain long past its use by date and very mouldy. Carpet is heavily stained. BBQ had no gas. Very musty,not good for allergies

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for your feedback - i note the shower curtain and will replace. As far as the mould? unsure where exactly there is any mould. I will definitely give it a dust. The BBQ was refilled in the weekend although there was some in it - if you had let me know it was empty i would have credited some $ to you, for you to fill. Bear in mind our bach is just that - a bach. Wallpaper and carpet - yes perhaps we will replace in time. I think the photos and price are fair.
