    Great "Bach" clean, tidy and very very comfortable, very well located and easy walk (35mins) walk into town. A BBQ would be nice for casual out side cooking, but the kitchen is well equipped. Thanks for having us :-)

  • Great place to get away for the weekend

    Great place to get away for the weekend. Plenty of space and great facilities and a beautiful setting. Easy walk into town. We had a wonderful time. We loved Coromandel town, just the right pace and not too many people, but plenty to see and do. Will definitely be back.

  • Lovely house with a really nice comfortable homely feel

    Lovely house with a really nice comfortable homely feel. Having a bathroom for each room was great. Lots of room to relax & unwind & the gardens are wonderful. Great spot to stay for attending a wedding held next door at the Hush venue- or for going to the Driving Creek Railway - an easy walk to both.
