The facilities are excellent. David is very accommodating. Not critical but having air conditioning only in the lower rooms could be an issue for those upstairs during the day. The cottage design and components are excellent. It is off the main highway so it is completely quite and peaceful. And yet it is a short drive to Coromandel Town to... More

What an idyllic spot. We returned after 2 years and think it's even better the second time. 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,... More

Driving Creek Villas is a short way from Coromandel town (30 min walk or a quicker cycle ride on the bikes that are available). It's wonderfully quiet and secluded. There are three villas all with high end BBQs, TV, DVD player, washing machines, dishwashers etc. Free wifi available with reasonable connection speed. Very comfortable deck seating and nice sofas indoors... More

After a delayed check in - we had a nice stay. David made everything right and spoilt us. So happy about that being our first Expedia booking. Comfy beds - everything you could wish for - we barbecued and enjoyed the hot tub. Pricey but well worth it. Restful tasteful retreat . Thank you David - hope to return another... More

If you want to spoil yourself a little and get away to a beautiful, peaceful and private location, then this is for you. The villas are superbly fitted out and set in the bush. Kingfishers and singing tui are regular visitors. We cooked our own meals because the kitchen had all the mod cons including an excellent gas cooker. Eating... More

Moehau Cottage is a superb hideaway for a couple - beautiful, private, immaculately kept, fully equipped for comfort and self-catering (although of course there is also excellent food available at Driving Creek Café, a short walk away, or in the township, a short drive.) The art work on the walls is a feature, and the heat pumps keep the whole... More

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
