“' MOEHAU VILLA' - a unique NZ experience !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2011

We have enjoyed two 'long holidays' at Moehau - a home away from home !!
Moehau has the warmth and ambience of a private dwelling - quality fittings, original
art works, stunning indoor / outdoor flow and a unique garden outlook with a NZ native
bush backdrop. As a result, native birds abound.
We cherish the privacy provided and the meticulous presentation.
A must, for those who enjoy something special and very individual.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in a beautiful self-contained villa. It was very tranquil relaxing on the deck and soaking in the hot tub surrounded by native bush and listening to the stream nearby. The villa was beautifully presented and very well equipped. It was a short walk to local attractions such as the Driving Creek Railway.

These beautifully appointed villas are set in a divine bush setting complete with stream and many native songbirds to greet us each morning. Quiet and peacefull and within walking distance of cafe and Driving Creek Railway - really worth seeing and experiencing. Clean, light and airy, and comfortable beds- always important. Hot tub with our unit just added to the level of relaxation. Short drive into Coromandel town for excellent shopping for gifts, or just to spoil self, and a selection of great places to eat.The area offers many attractions for a longer stay - we had only a couple of nights, but will definately be going back again. All the mod-cons and all of the highest quality - just delightful.

A wonderful location amid native bush with a stream at the end of the garden. Birds visit regularly, even while you're enjoying the Hot Tub!
Always light, bright and clean, means we can totally unwind and relax. Although we usually cook our own meals, there are plenty of reasonably priced eateries within minutes of the villas.
We've visited this spot three times and will definitely be back for more!
