    The Waterline is a very special place - nestled into the shoreline of Kohukohu, it's tranquil and enchanting. It's also immaculately cared for - spotless on arrival, and with so many small and well-considered touches. What a treat!

    Exceeded our expectations - we already knew we were in for a treat when we booked it, but this place is beautiful! Very quirky bach and has an instantly homely and positive atmosphere! Fishing off the deck (although we didn't catch anything) was great, soaking in the bath and enjoying this beautiful and quaint town. We'll be back!

  • Absolutely loved it

    Absolutely loved it...not a bad thing to say about it. Looking forward to going back and spending some real time there. Very 'old school' Kiwi boat-shed aesthetic...right there ON the water.And we were there...in the middle of winter...must be awesome in the Summer!
