Superb location and accommodation but most off all, the couple who run this place are simply the perfect hosts. Nothing was too much bother and their useful advice for sightseeing was very much appreciated. We particularly remember the lovely home made breakfasts on the covered patio with the view of the beach. We toured New Zealand for nearly four weeks... More

After driving the Coromandel loop all day in the rain on a motorcycle we showed up at Greg and Ali's doorstep wet and cold even with good rain gear. They had us park the bike in the garage and after we got a hot shower they took all of our wet clothes and dried them for us. Then Ali offered... More

Very nice room, tastefully furnished. Very close to the wonderful beach. Very gracious hosts, who were very helpful with tips on eating and sightseeing. We loved the breakfast on the veranda. When we arrived we were slightly concerned with the risk of noise from the main road by the house, but it turned out to be no problem. Hardly any... More

Thank you for your support. We enjoyed mhosting you guys and sharing our little piece of paradise with you. The beach is a hidden jewel in the crown and a great source of relaxation for many. You were more likely to have noise from the surf crashing on the shore than road noise. Very pleased you enjoyed your stay. More

We traveled to New Zealand in December to celebrate the holidays with family and friends. Waihi Beach Lodge was the perfect start to a wonderful vacation. We traveled with our two adult children so required two rooms. The beds were comfortable and the rooms well appointed and private - we wanted for nothing. One of our rooms had a small... More

Cycling round the Coromandel Peninsula this December was quite a challenge for me and my husband. But it was an amazing way to see the stunning scenery and enjoy the local hospitality. Our ride to Waihi Beach was particularly hard due to prevailing winds, but Greg's advice to take a short cut helped massively. His helpfulness prior to our arrival... More
