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.

  • Great getaway for the weekend with the babes away from busy Auckland

    Great getaway for the weekend with the babes away from busy Auckland. Nice clean little cottage where you can sit on the deck and listen to the birds sing, watch the sunset on the mountain view. Peaceful and cosy, this cottage made us feel super relaxed. Spent the Saturday on our trail walk. Was such an amazing experience!! And only a short distance from the cottage. Went for a picnic and swim at Owharoa falls. Had such a wonderful time. Nigel and Pam such lovely hosts. Nigel was very informative on activities around the area. Cottage was filled with all necessities needed. Shower is to die for! Thank you Nigel and Pam for sharing your special little piece of heaven with us!! We will be back.

    Wonderful, relaxing cottage spot for exploring the area. We enjoyed our time there and the hosts, Nigel and Pam, put great effort into the house, property and all the details.

    We arrived late from Auckland and it was lovely to have Nigel and Pamela welcome us to their peaceful, quiet little piece of paradise. We took Nigel's advice on walks in the area and walked about 15kms to see all the sights. Then to sit on the front verandah of the cottage and take in the country scenery was just the best after a big day of walking.
