Waters Edge Cottage is a 2 bedroom Hahei Bach that stays true to its name - a beach cottage in a superb location!! The secluded beachfront bach, nestled in a native bush setting, takes you back to baches of yesteryear when the only things that mattered were when your next swim was due or when the BBQ would be started up!

This Hahei bach looks out onto the beach, with safe swimming and a boat ramp, allowing a good 4wd-boat up to 5 metres, you are free to explore the beauty of Mercury Bay whenever you wish, without queues!!

Waters Edge Cottage is located on a rural bush block situated between Cooks Beach and Hahei, with stunning beach front views to Cooks Beach & the inner Mercury Bay. This Hahei accommodation is 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 home offers a lovely conservatory - a perfect, peaceful place to read... The pot belly stove efficiently heats Waters Edge Cottage so it is nice and cozy for any winter stays!

The sleeping accommodation at Waters Edge Cottage provides a first bedroom with 1 Queen bed, and a conservatory fitted with 1 double bunk and a sofa bed.

This is an amazing beachside location, and the perfect retreat for a small family or couple wanting to get away from it all - this is what holidays should be all about... 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....

A spectacular rural retreat when you are looking for something peaceful and private!!

  • 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.

    A very great location right on the water in what is essentially your own private cove. A small boat ramp on site which is suitable for a 4wd car.

  • Location was lovely ;access road questionable for rental cars

    Location was lovely ;access road questionable for rental cars. Some furniture needed moving & cleaning behind as dead cockroaches were off putting!!! Bach was open on arrival & no instructions for lock up on departure.Also no instructions on when & where to leave rubbish.We had to find out.Not aware that the 2nd bathroom was outside;good job it wasn't raining during the night! for our UK visitors it was a bit basic!!!!
