What makes this Cottage unique
Karangahake is an excellent place to base your visit to the greater Coromandel area. Equidistant from Tauranga, Hamilton and Auckland, all about 1 hrs drive. The area is surrounded by some amazing and popular leisure activities, with the cycle way and extensive walking tracks starting only a few minutes walk from the cottage.

Great little historical cottage
Best Bach ever
From the moment we arrived we'r just knew it was going to be ther perfect place to stay. The beds were comfy, the kitchen had everything required and the hot tub superb at the end of the day. We loved it and we'll be back another day.
Lovely cottage, well equipped and close to gorge park
Enjoyed the night in a lovely little town
Lovely quaint cottage. Nicely decorated and with a beautiful garden
We enjoyed staying in this lovely quaint cottage with it's traditional décor and beautiful country garden. So convenient for the Karangahake Gorge walks just across the way. It would have been nice to have had time to use the spa pool. We should have made it a 2 night stay! Its a shame the local café and the Falls Retreat were closed during our stay but we made up for it with an amazing lunch at Flat White in Waihi beach followed by a walk along the gorgeous sandy beach
Thanks for being such great guests. And thanks for looking after things and leaving everything so nice and tidy.
Fantastic cottage in a fantastic spot - we shall be recommending to many!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wished it could have been for longer! Really homely and great for kids and adults alike - that tub is great! Mike was a great host too. And you couldn’t get any closer to the Karangahake Gorge walks, meaning you skip the carpark hassles completely! Thanks very much for a brilliant stay! :)
Your country cottage nestled in the heart of the gorge
Lovely clean and spacious cottage with bags of character and placed next to the Karangahake Gorge area. Easy access to Paeroa, Waihi and we even took in Ngatea as it was on our way. Don't forget the hot tub!!! We got there a few hours early and met the owners preparing the place for us. They didn't bat an eyelid and gave us a recommendation for a local restaurant we could have lunch at whilst they finished up. Awesome 5 star!!!
