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.

    Lovely little cottage, beautifully maintained. Very conveniently located close to walking tracks. Nigel was wonderful and very well informed about what there was to do and where to go.

  • Small but perfectly formed

    Small but perfectly formed. Great location in Karanagahake Gorge. We counted at least 73 cockerels in decor- very cute!

  • Very comfortable, modern and neat accommodation with thoughtful details

    Very comfortable, modern and neat accommodation with thoughtful details. Peaceful environment ideal for a rest (and recovery from jet lag). Interesting and informative local visits to the old gold mine workings, and great scenery in the gorge. Good base for visits to the Coromandel peninsula. Cathedral cove and beaches a must see!
