Most of our guests comment that photographs displayed on the web site don't do the Cottage justice. The tranquility found while staying in the Cottage and enjoying Kim's wonderful gardens cannot be described.

The Coromandel beaches are among the most beautiful on the planet! Within a 1 hour drive are Whangamata Beach, Hot Water Beach, Hahei, Cook's Beach and Whitianga township. Of course Pauanui Beach is one of the best swimming beaches and is only a 5 minute drive from the Cottage. The Tairua/Pauanui estuary is great for swimming, sailing, skiing and jet boats.

There are some wonderful bush walks for trampers nearby and only a few kilometres away are some great fresh water swimming holes in the Tairua river.

Right next door is the Lakes Resort Golf Course, a fantastic championship golf course that includes restaurant and bar facilities for after game relaxation.

Guest Comments

yglass - December 2011 - What a fabulous property! Very private, spectacular views, very well equipped and immaculately kept. Didn't want to leave! If we return to New Zealand - this is where we would come.

tsullivan - January 2013 - Private and gorgeous "bush" location with amazing views and private garden and seating areas. The cottage is well equipped, attractive, very clean and tidy. A very relaxing location and great for a second honeymoon! We really appreciated the extra touches (servicing after three days, fruit, a few provisions, lots of towels etc) and trouble taken to make the cottage lovely to stay in and make our holiday very special, Many thanks Kim!

    Where do you start? The cottage was a well equipped home - spotless, high quality and so comfortable. Kim has thought of everything. The setting is so beautiful - the house is set right in the bush, with park-like grounds - views of the beautiful garden, native bush and hills everywhere. Enjoyed watching the tuis, using the outdoor shower and choosing which garden/view we'd sit in each day. Kim & Brian are fantastic hosts - very nice people who made us so welcome. Thanks :)

  • We loved our time at the Cottage

    We loved our time at the Cottage. It was very clean and tidy and had everything you needed, all beautifully presented. It was quite and peaceful and just a perfect place to escape after the busyness of our wedding. Our only 'issues' were having difficulty finding the place, as there is no sign by the road, and feeling a little exposed by a window in the master bedroom above the bed with no covering and the driveway right out side.

    Hi, thanks for your lovely comments. Just to let you know we have fitted some shutters on the window now so thanks for the advice and we also have had a sign made for the entranceway (not yet in place). We really appreciate you letting us know how we can make things better for our guests. Kind regards Kim

  • Beautiful location with lovely landscaped gardens

    Beautiful location with lovely landscaped gardens. Private, quiet, immaculately presented cottage-everything we needed including lovely linen, books, DVDs, magazines for a rainy day. Complete privacy but a short drive into Pauanui.

    We had a very relaxing few days in this immaculately clean, beautifully presented cottage with its stunning views and gardens. Thank you Kim and Bryan for being such helpful hosts. We hope to visit again very soon.
