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.
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!
The Cottage is not suited to pre-school children due to steep terrain nearby and the bush setting. We do not accept pre-school children.
