Description

  • Cute, cosy and decorated with Kiwiana books and furniture. Private, park like grounds.
  • Right in the heart of Paeroa; minutes to fabulous antique shops.
  • A short drive to Karangahake Gorge, Waihi and Waihi Beach

The Refinery is full of history. Built in 1914 to refine gold from the Waihi mine, it is a beautiful light filled gallery like space with exposed wooden beams and white concrete walls.

This houses our cafe 'The Refinery' (open Wed-Sun) where you are invited to enjoy a coffee and breakfast. (complimentary coffee for guests with food purchase) to fuel your holiday adventures.

The separate cottage is comfortable and private while still having access to the rest of the property and the convenience of being right in the heart of Paeroa. Minutes walk to all the antique shops, restaurants and, of course, the Hauraki Rail Trail.

The cottage is decorated in a retro style with plenty of books, pottery and kiwiana treasures. Ideal for a 2-3 adults or a couple with 1-2 kids. A giant avocado tree is just outside the door along with many other fruit trees dotted about the property.

The Karangahake Gorge is just a few minutes drive away with fantastic walks, swimming holes, and cycle paths to enjoy.

A little further on is historic Waihi and Waihi beach for swimming and surfing.

Just an hour and a half from Auckland-Paeroa is a great base for exploring the area.

  • Our second stay at The Refinery - enjoyed it so much, returned...

    Our second stay at The Refinery - enjoyed it so much, returned with another couple this year! They thought the Guards Cottage decor was charming. And like us, loved the location being close to Paeroa's antique and op shops, the Hauraki cycle trail - and the highlight, 'Battle of the Streets' motorcycle race.

  • Very handy location

    Very handy location. Love the retro fittings and touches. Only suggestion would be to adjust the curtains to cover all of the windows as the gap lets the streetlight through. This place has a wonderful atmosphere.

  • 'The Refinery' provided cosy and comfortable accommodation during our stay in Paeroa

    'The Refinery' provided cosy and comfortable accommodation during our stay in Paeroa. The kitchen has most things needed for a self-catered stay and the bathroom is well appointed, with lovely towels. The bed is very comfortable. Thank you Nicky for a very nice stay.

  • Perfect location! Being one block back from the main road gave us...

    Perfect location! Being one block back from the main road gave us the luxury of a quick walk to the supermarket (& main road eateries) but not the noise of the passing traffic. Finding a full kitchen was a bonus that I hadn't been expecting as there was no photos of it on the listing. The bed was uber comfy and although the property is attached to the cafe and the other cottage is VERY close it's uber quiet. Only (tiny) minus would be that the main curtains don't fit the window.
