Koru cottage is the idyllic holiday retreat located at the southern end of Medlands beach. It offers expansive views over the eastern coastline and Pacific ocean. Mt Hobson and the rugged mountain landscape of the island lye to the northwest.

Set in native bush and gardens within easy walking distance to beautiful Medlands Beach, this is a small modern Bach which runs from solar power.

Vehicle access requires crossing of Oruawharo stream at low tide. A 4WD vehicle is recommended.

Pedestrian access is via the walk bridge located next to the Medlands campground. A car park can also be found here.

Medlands beach is centrally located on Great Barrier and is an easy drive to Tryphena or Claris and a great base for accessing all of the other island attractions.

Special conditions: The nightly rate applies to two adults or couple with 2 children under 12 years. (max 4 persons) For extra adults please contact us. Beach towels are not included.

    Stunning location and lovely property with everything you need for a relaxing visit. The perfect spot for hanging out on beanbags, reading books and listening to the birds.

    We loved it! Rustic and simple, yet beautifully designed and extremely comfortable -- the ideal bach experience. The 10-minute walk over the footbridge and up the hill is not for the faint of heart, and the outdoor ablutions block gets wet in a heavy downpour -- but Medlands is a glorious place to be, and the sense of adventure and getting-away-from-it-all made our stay at Koru Cottage all the more memorable.
