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

Our last respite before an arduous journey home... and what an idyllic spot. The beauty of the location, the absolute privacy, the comfort and amenities, the artistic touches.. all combine to make this the loveliest stay we have had in New Zealand. The view from the patio over coffee as the sun comes up is gorgeous, the hot tub experience... More

We don’t normally write reviews on the properties that we stay at but felt we had to for this particular property. Our first comments when we arrived were “we should have booked this place for the whole week, rather than just the weekend”. It’s everything that you could want, for a quiet, secluded break. We stayed in the Moehau Villa... More

My wife and spent two idyllic nights at this sheltered Eden away from the noise and bustle of the city. The Villa, with outdoor hot tub, BBQ, tree clad surrounds was as private and peaceful as an island and is only 1 hours travel from almost everywhere up the peninsula, 15 minute walk from first class restaurant and charming bars...

The 3 Driving Creek Villas are beautifully placed in very secluded quiet spots and are set in some stunning NZ native bush. They are very spacious, the internet is perfect, the Weber BBQ's are fantastic and yes, we will go back again.

Booked a 2 night stay in Jan 2014. Stayed in Kaipawa villa: villas are identical and Kaipawa is at the end of the property so absolutely private. The villa is extremely well equipped, everything you need. The hot tub was great (though the mozzies had a feast on me!) . It's only a couple of minutes drive to Coromandel town.... More

What a find. We came here based on previous reviews and were not disappointed. Setting is magical, and very private. Excellent villa, with beautiful new appliances and furnishings. An incredibly peaceful place. Very clean, comfortable, accessible to town. Just beautiful, and the birds were free!
