The Waiomu Cafe and the local general store / fish and chip shop are both less than 5 minutes away. Historic Thames is 10 minutes by car, and Coromandel Town is only 45 minutes drive up the beautiful Thames Coast Road. Auckland and Hamilton are both only 1 1/2 hours drive, and Auckland International Airport is just over an hour's drive. Its a great base for hiking, fishing, cycling, or just exploring the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula. The well known destinations of Whitianga, Cathedral Cove, Hot Water Beach, and Coromandel Town are all no more than 1.5 hours drive.

Guests have full access to the apartment, which is completely self contained. There is a dedicated parking space and the access is via a concrete driveway. There is a barbecue available for guest use. There is a toaster, microwave oven, fridge, tea and coffee provided, but there is no hob or oven. A gas burner can be provided on request.

    This well-kept bach is more spacious than might appear from the online description. The living area has a sofa, easy chair, small dining table and a kitchen area; the bedroom is separate. A large deck has a view over the Firth of Thames. The somewhat limited cooking facilities (kettle, toaster, microwave, and electric skillet; no stovetop or standard oven) worked just fine for us. There's a excellent café just a couple of km north, plus cafes/restaurants in Thames and in Coromandel Town.

    Could do with security catches/stays on high windows so they can be left open at night.

  • Nice private location

    Nice private location. Had a lovely swim. The beach is great. The walk back up the hill really good for the legs. Had a cute grey cat visit and keep me company.
