Ideal location for us as we had a mates wedding 500metres down the road at Hush. Met the owner David, who was very accommodating. Beautiful surroundings and very tidy Villa. I wish we could have stayed a lot longer.

David was more than helpful in his suggestions as to places to visit. We loved... More

The setting is spectacular with bush surrounding the most wonderful villa. Everything you could want is provided for and David is a very helpful host. We had three glorious nights earlier in the week, and we decided there was nowhere better to be so we came back. That should tell you everything. Tranquil, restful, scenic and the hot tub was...

The villa has a fully equipped kitchen which we used for dinners and breakfasts. The bath was large and spotless. We did not rent a car, relying on... More

Nestling into the bush, with a creek below the attractive gardens, the villa is only a mile from Coromandel town centre, with its excellent restaurants and ships. Just round the corner is Driving Creek narrow-gauge railway, which is a must visit, that makes you feel like a kid again. When we arrived we were delighted to find an airy, clean... More
