Constructed from Canadian cedar wood, this attractive, self contained cottage is located in a beautiful garden setting on the rear section of our Gold 'n Views property. Nestled beneath Mt. Karangahake among stunning scenic views and only minutes from the Hauraki Rail Trail, historic gold mining walkways, a cafe, a winery/restaurant and great trout fishing in the Ohinemuri and Waitawheta rivers.

PERFECT BASE FROM WHICH TO EXPLORE THE COROMANDEL - easy day trips to popular sites - reduce your packing/unpacking -

"When you have enjoyed your day, relax at the Cottage; watch the Sunset - you may see a Golden View!"

"Really cosy and warm- AWESOME!"

The KARANGAHAKE GORGE marks the southern end of the COROMANDEL RANGES and is part of the COROMANDEL PENINSULA. It is situated on State Highway 2 between Paeroa and Waihi. Site of the original gold rush in 1875 and steeped in gold mining history, it is now a more peaceful location offering visitors a perfect place to explore.

Follow the old railway formation - now part of the HAURAKI RAIL TRAIL. It includes a one kilometre train tunnel. Walk the popular Karangahake Gorge Historic Walkway alongside the sparkling Ohinemuri River. Seek out the gold trails in the spectacular Waitewheta Gorge featuring the famous "WINDOWS" walk. Waihi beach is only 25 minutes away and the hot mineral pools at Te Aroha are only 20 minutes away.

    Beautiful Cottage, lovely location, cosy, comfy, had everything you could need and very clean. Handy to all the local attractions. Although Nigel and Pam can arrange bicycle hire, if you don't have a four wheel drive or bicycle mounts on the back of your car, the trek back up Mt Karangahake is pretty steep. Next time I stay and I definately would, I would arrange bike hire down near the cycle tracks or hire an electric bike, which you can do through Nigel and Pam. Great place to stay.

  • Our stay was really nice

    Our stay was really nice. The location of the property very tranquil and beautiful view over the gorge. Nigel and Pamela were very welcoming and relaxed which helped us feel at home. My kids were also gifted a book Nigel had written. Highly recommend.

    Oh, this was just gorgeous! Fully self contained, full of character and warmth, with only the birds for company. We stayed here for two nights in mid-winter while we explored the Karangahake Gorge and it was perfect - nicely positioned to make the most of the local attractions. Nigel and Pamela are exemplary hosts and the cottage has everything you need for a romantic getaway. We will be back!
