We were there on July 2016 on our honeymoon, we spent one night and everything was awesome. Nice place, in front of the beach, and the best part was the couple who manage the B&B. In New Zealand everybody is nice, but they were the nicest hosts of the whole trip, it was really sad to leave the B&B

I had a wonderful 2 night stay in this idyllic spot. Greg and Ali couldn't have been nicer and served a great breakfast with homemade muffins. The beach is beautiful and it's a short drive to the village for dinner...The Porch is the best. The bed is very comfortable, the shower powerful, and there is strong free internet.

Waihi Beach is a quiet beach town not yet discovered by the tourist trade. Positives: We could see the beach from our spacious and comfortable room, just a short walk (<5 min) from the Lodge.

We stayed there for 2 days to visit the Coromandel region. The room was really, really nice, well organised. The owners are really friendly, helping people providing a qualitative breakfast menu served on the terrace. In addition, they helped us organise a trip to Cathedral Cove, detailed the itinerary. Parking is available in the property.
