    Wow, what a sweet little sanctuary you've created here Donna! The thought that's gone into everything and your talent for detail made me feel like I'd really escaped to paradise...if just for a couple of days. Great location for heading to hot water beach or south to Pauanui and beyond, or just stepping out the gate to take in the view and then a short hike up Mt Paku - stunning! I'm reluctant to give this little secret haven away....we'll be back!

    Lovely little property spotlessly clean and fresh we loved the location and the family pets.Gave us the perfect opportunity to do some walking as good access through pathways down to the beach and the summit climb was just up the road.Very quiet at night and lovely bird life in the morning whilst sitting outside with breakfast.Easy travelling distance to Whitianga and other parts of the Coromandel. The wine and chocolate on arrival was an extra nice touch

  • This place is a wonderful gem

    This place is a wonderful gem. The place is small but has everything that you need. A good size fridge and freezer to store everything in. A lovely outside area and personal touches like a bottle of wine and chocolate. This spot had everything you needed. Matt and Donna were very helpful and have created a lovely place to stay. It was a great place to base yourself if the Coromandel as nothing was too far away.
