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.

  • Stylish, relaxing, private location

    Stylish, relaxing, private location. Perfect little bach. Recommend a 4 wheel drive to get across the stream at low tide and driving straight up to the Bach instead of walking. We rented an old rav 4 and it was fine for this.

  • A 4WD is essential for accessing this property...

    A 4WD is essential for accessing this property. Very difficult with small children. Great concept but hard to manage. No oven facilities when we were there, which coupled with very challenging access made feeding a family difficult. We had a good time but were quite disappointed with the accomodation overall given the cost.

  • Not 5 star in a traditional way but in every way that...

    Not 5 star in a traditional way but in every way that matters to me. I love the deceivingly simple design, the attention to detail, the outside bathroom, the clever ways the space can be reconfigured and opened right up. Also cool dog 'Sydney' living next door ...

  • Great secluded spot

    Great secluded spot. Beautiful cottage by Medlands beach. Just make sure you have a 4WD to cross the stream in high tide!
