Come and stay at The Cottage in Ruffins Bay for an unforgettable and magical experience.

This sublimely cool beach house has all the makings of a beach front retreat that will ensure that you, your friends and family create memories that will last a lifetime.

The cottage shares the bay with only 6 other houses which gives you the space and privacy to relax and unwind during your holiday.

Step outside the front door and have Ruffins Bay beach just metres away from you. Perhaps launch your boat at the private boat ramp or enjoy using the large beach front lawn for a picnic or game of cricket . The beach is really safe for swimming and kids have so much space to run around. As the sun goes down, the deck is the perfect place to be for happy hour and spending some quality time with those who you have come to Ruffins Bay with.

The house boasts 4 large bedrooms with luxe linens and comfy beds, a modern kitchen, large open plan living and dining and wonderful indoor / outdoor flow complete with an expansive deck that is perfect for soaking up the view, and cooking your catch of the day on the BBQ. There is also a modern bathroom and second lounge area which is a great place to send the kids to hang out if you want a bit of peace and quiet.

To top things off there is a dishwasher, full laundry facilities, bluetooth audio, Sky TV and WIFI, however the cottage is the type of place where you put your phone away, forget about the chores and enjoy a kiwi holiday the way that they used to be.

There are also two sit on kayaks plus life jackets that guests can use to explore the beautiful bay.

Coromandel Town is only five minutes drive away for fantastic Restaurants, Cafes and Shopping.

  • We stay here every year and the property is always immaculate

    We stay here every year and the property is always immaculate. Everything you need plus some! The private bay is perfect for relaxing. Swimming available 5-6 hrs /day and right on your door-step. Corommandel township only 10 minutes away. Appreciate that every time we stay the owners have updated or added something to the experience. Even if the weather is not ideal, there's still plenty to do in the roomy indoors /deck areas. Always hard to leave.

  • A very nice house in a quiet, beautiful bay

    A very nice house in a quiet, beautiful bay. The house is very spacious; we were four adults and three children staying in the house, and had room to spare. Great facilities outdoor for barbecue, also in rainy weather as the terrace is partially roof-covered. Can highly recommend!

    Even without alcohol we had a few family members trip on the step going out to the front porch. Very hard to see as the timber is all the same shade. Maybe could do with a stripe of color.
