Centrally located in Kohukohu - walk to art galleries, cafe and the heritage trail to explore the historic buildings.

  • A gem! We loved our stay here

    A gem! We loved our stay here. It's surrounded by lapping water, esp when the tide's high; it's quiet, peaceful & relaxing. U feel like you're on a boat without the motion! There's a cafe just across the road for yummy coffee & cheese scones. Bliss. But wait there's more: you drive 4 ks down the road, pop on the ferry to enjoy the scrumpiest chicken, leak and mushroom pie (if it's available) at the Boat Shed Cafe! Too much. The Waterline's extra clean & fabulously stocked. 12 stars!
