Waters Edge Cottage truly lives up to the name - a charming beach cottage in an unbeatable location!

The secluded beachfront bach sits nestled in a native bush setting, and takes you back to Kiwi baches of yesteryear when the only things that mattered were when your next swim was due or when the BBQ would be started up!

Waters Edge Cottage sits on the sands of Cooks Bay in Hahei, with safe swimming and a boat ramp. Feel like you have your very own slice of paradise at Waters Edge Cottage, waking up to waves practically lapping at your doorstep.

Located on a rural bush block between Cooks Beach and Hahei, you're tucked away from it all but just a short drive to Hahei, Hot Water Beach, Cooks Beach and Whitianga via Ferry Landing. Plan a day trip exploring all that the stunning Coromandel has to offer!

This Hahei bach has a sunny conservatory - a perfectly peaceful place to read. The pot belly stove efficiently heats Waters Edge Cottage, so it is nice and cosy for any winter stays! This is the perfect retreat for a small family or group wanting to recharge their batteries the old-fashioned way: sun, sand, swimming and relaxing without the mod-cons that can often detract from holidays today! Fall asleep listening to the waves, and wake up with the tui calling.

An indescribably idyllic beachfront location, discover the untouched paradise that is Waters Edge Cottage today!

Special conditions: As the property has unfenced access to the beach, adults should closely supervise young children while outside to ensure they are safe around water. The pathway to the beach is rocky so guests with limited mobility should be careful walking down to the beach. The beach changes occasionally with storms and sometimes rocks pile up below the steps. If the area below the steps is too rocky for our guests there is a path from the lawn to the boat ramp, which goes across a small stream.

  • A very basic, rustic bach in a lovely spot

    A very basic, rustic bach in a lovely spot. Needs major clean up and repair. Although we booked because of the description of seclusion, and own beach access. there was a raucous party next door for several days, and NO access to the beach. Very frustrating

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for taking the time to leave us feedback. Sue. We're glad you enjoyed the bach and its location! There are about 6 or 7 steps that lead to the beach from the property, but do need some maintenance. I've followed this up with our team who will be responding to you directly about this. Huge apologies, and appreciate your comments! - Phoebe

  • Loved being right on the water; a lovely peaceful, private position

    Loved being right on the water; a lovely peaceful, private position. Tricky having internal access to the second bedroom through the first, though not a problem in fine weather. The outside bathroom had no water when we arrived but the owners were instantly responsive and sorted out the problem as quickly as possible. We had visitors from Australia and we loved our time there.
