One bedroom cedar cottage, nestled into a cottage garden with a path leading to the orchards. The property is set on 1.5 acres, fully self contained with one QUEEN bed / bedroom and NEW en suite (July 2011), plus new sofa bed (Nov 2013) in the open plan living area. Lovely warm place to stay in either summer or winter as it is north facing and has a logfire for the winter.

The property is an oasis of a variety of fruits in the orchards which covers the property. Most times of the year there is fruit to sample. At the rear of the property is Driving Creek stream where the first gold was discovered in New Zealand and today you will find crystals there for a souvenir.

Within walking distance (5min) is the famous Driving Creek Railway, where Barry Brickell, a world famous potter has established a truely fasinating environment, with potters and his world famous railway PLUS there is now the Driving Creek Wildlife Sanctuary and new Art Gallery which will exhibit Barry's private collection of very famouse artisits not to forget the fabulous views of the habour and islands. Also see the restablishment of native trees and wild life. On the way stop off at the funky Driving Creek Cafe.

The historic village of Coromandel is under 3km, with fabulous restaurants and craft shops. The 3 local pubs all provide courtesy vans door to door. The cottage is 7-8 mins to the closest safe beach or under 30 mins to the beautiful Whangapoua, NEW CHUMS and Matarangi Beaches on the east coast.

Also there are bush walks to native Giant Kauri Trees, artist studios to visit, great fishing region - if you do not have a boat we would be happy to organise a trip for you or a trip to the Cape perhaps.

  • Loved our stay in the Coromandel

    Loved our stay in the Coromandel. Fire was so cozy! Had everything we needed and lovely fresh herbs/flowers/fruit fresh from the garden. Was a good walk into town and The Driving Creek Railway was just around the corner. Thanks Shirley and Tim.

    The property is just down the road from Driving Creek railway and in handy distance to town and museums. There are trees, flowers and birds galore. The water pressure in the shower was superb, however I thought the bathroom a little cold in the mornings. I would recommend showering in the evening after the fire has been going a while.

    We enjoyed having you, and your lovely dog. I'm sorry you found the bathroom cold, there is a heater if required.
