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

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
