The Refinery is full of history. Built in 1914 to refine gold from the Waihi mine, it is a beautiful light filled gallery like space with exposed wooden beams and white concrete walls.
This houses our cafe 'The Refinery' (open Wed-Sun) where you are invited to enjoy a coffee and breakfast. (complimentary coffee for guests with food purchase) to fuel your holiday adventures.
The separate cottage is comfortable and private while still having access to the rest of the property and the convenience of being right in the heart of Paeroa. Minutes walk to all the antique shops, restaurants and, of course, the Hauraki Rail Trail.
The cottage is decorated in a retro style with plenty of books, pottery and kiwiana treasures. Ideal for a 2-3 adults or a couple with 1-2 kids. A giant avocado tree is just outside the door along with many other fruit trees dotted about the property.
The Karangahake Gorge is just a few minutes drive away with fantastic walks, swimming holes, and cycle paths to enjoy.
A little further on is historic Waihi and Waihi beach for swimming and surfing.
Just an hour and a half from Auckland-Paeroa is a great base for exploring the area.

Perfect location! Being one block back from the main road gave us the luxury of a quick walk to the supermarket (& main road eateries) but not the noise of the passing traffic. Finding a full kitchen was a bonus that I hadn't been expecting as there was no photos of it on the listing. The bed was uber comfy and although the property is attached to the cafe and the other cottage is VERY close it's uber quiet. Only (tiny) minus would be that the main curtains don't fit the window.
Quaint cottage nicely furnished with retro items and lots of books.
Perfect for our needs- to travel the area.
It was a cute cosy little cottage in a private location in town yet hidden away. We enjoyed our stay here. Thank you.
The property was in central paeroa,and absolutely awesome,we loved our mini break in here,the whole team were so friendly and accomodating and the cafe was a walk down memory lane with the furnishings,collections and LP's,the food was delicious,and the treats on arrival were very much appreciated.
Comfortable, quiet, ideal for the two of us. 2min walk to centre of town. Definitely will come again and will recommend. Loved the memorabilia.
