We absolutely adored Driving Creek Villas! So handy to Coromandel Township and activities, and yet so very peaceful! We felt like we were in the middle of nowhere - a real retreat. The Kaipawa villa was awesome - so thoughtfully equipped and a beautiful building and grounds. It was so spacious and very comfortable. We loved the Japanese hot tub... More

Everything was awesome. A sunny, peaceful, relaxing and cosy villa surrounded by native New Zealand bush. All the modern amenities you'd want away from home. The complementary bikes were handy too. We got to the Coromandel by ferry and the Dave, the manager/owner was able to pick us up from town. Highly recommended!

My daughters (20 & 18) & I stayed at Driving Creek Villas on a recent trip to NZ. It is at least as lovely as the photos - well appointed, clean and spacious. The gardens and creek behind are a beautiful backdrop. Coromandel Town is a short drive or bicycle ride away, with good food and wine available. We would... More

We stayed here for four nights recently and it was a wonderful surprise! Quality lodge accommodation surrounded by native bush with birds nesting out of the window, a stream trickling below us and only a very short drive to town. Everything we needed was in the beautifully appointed lodge, which had all modern amenities and many extra features too, and... More

Kaipaw Villa very spacious & fully equipped with all modern necessities of home yet manages to provide a unique setting making one feel relaxed & getting away from the mad rush. We stayed 2 nights and felt thoroughly spoiled enjoying the outdoor jacuzzi, evening drinks & BBQ on the veranda overlooking amazing bushland with the soothing sounds of a stream... More

Excellent accommodation in Coromandel Town. A last minute decision to do a road trip to Coromandel was greatly enhanced by a night spent at driving creek villas. Great service, especially accommodating us when we were only staying one night. I look forward to staying again, maybe next time in the summer!

We have stayed at Driving Creek Villas several times over the years and each return trip we love it more and more. The first time we stayed we thought everything was excellent but each time we return further little extras have been done. This time it was the Japanese hot tub at Moehau Villa which added that little something extra.... More
