    Magical - if you have an opportunity to spend time at Driving Creek Villas - take it. A truely fantatic bush cabin in a wonderful setting - so lovely that you don't need to go anywhere else though I would recommend picking up some fresh oysters from Coromandel!

    We jumped ship on our planned itinerary and so pleased we did. I could not face one more hotel room and this little cabin was beautiful and secluded with a full kitchen and a private hot tub. We set out in the evening by the bubbling creek and enjoyed a bottle of wine which was a gift of the management.... More

    Driving Creek Villas provided the perfect secluded weekend getaway venue to celebrate our special wedding anniversary. It is located in close proximity to great cafes and restaurants in the nearby Coromandel township; however, if you want to stay in, the full kitchen allows you to be entirely self-sufficient. Located in bush surroundings with the accompaniment of native birdsong, there's nothing... More

    Comfortable, clean, well thought out and through both internally and externally, quiet and private. Good quality furniture and fittings and an excellent kitchen. With lots to do in the area - or just enjoy the garden - and the excellent Driving Creek cafe just down the road a week would have been better but time did not allow. David was... More

    We'd had a hectic week flying balloons in Hamilton and just wanted two days respite from the world and we found heaven. These cottages are totally private in a stunning location. Extremely friendly owner who invited us in with professional friendliness Set in stunning gardens, relaxing to the sound of the tuis and the creek bubbling at the bottom of... More

    5 years since we our last stay and nothing has changed, which is a good thing. Whilst a few kilomoters outside of Coromandel town you could think you were in a secluded tropical forest. The villas are well appointed and there was nothing lacking in our view, also great outside space along with hot tub if that floats your boat,... More

    Nice setting, quiet and tranquil. All amenities you could wish for at hand. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Outlook over garden with the creek below. Enjoyed Visit by a family of ducks! Owner helpful and concerned for guests comfort - local power interruption and he was on site within minutes ensuring all was ok. Would recommend to others. Marie Clarke

    Lovely peaceful spot in well designed high quality villa that opens onto tranquil gardens. David was very accomodating of our travel by bike. Thanks! Japanese wooden hot tub is a treat after pedalling around. Recommend breakfast at Driving Creek cafe.

    Excellent self catering accommodation in a secluded area only a short walk to the Pottery and Driving Creek Railway and a short drive to town where there are restaurants etc.. Very well furnished and probably one of the best places to stay on the Coromandel. We would definitely stay there again.

    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
