What a find. We came here based on previous reviews and were not disappointed. Setting is magical, and very private. Excellent villa, with beautiful new appliances and furnishings. An incredibly peaceful place. Very clean, comfortable, accessible to town. Just beautiful, and the birds were free!

We stayed there on 21st dec 2013 till 23rd dec 2013. Perfect place to get away. We drove in and the keys were placed for us and a note at the entrance stated where to find them with a welcome note. It was home away from home, small yard, kitchen facing the mountains, outdoor hot tub. Away from the road...

My husband and I stayed at Driving Creek Villas in September and really enjoyed it. Fabulous setting amongst the bush and so private. Really enjoyed the Japanese hot tub which sets Driving Creek villas apart from other accommodation! The villa was so warm and inviting with the lovely wooden floors and joinery with lots of light making you feel cosy...

For a stress free break from the city, leave your car behind, catch the ferry to Coromandel and relax with a stay at Driving Creek Villas. Your host David Foreman will collect you from the ferry, stop off in town for necessary supplies and deliver you to your villa - tasteful, discrete, warm and welcoming just out of the township....

I stayed at the Driving Creek Villas in the Tokatea Villa during the weekend of my wedding in March.

The first thing that hits you when you arrive at your villa is the amazing smell of the surrounding plants and flowers, and then the peace, and then the birdsong. Within seconds of arriving we knew we'd made the right choice. The villas are very private but not secluded, the views are stunning and the location so close to Coromandel...

Driving Creek Villas was the first place we stayed in New Zealand and it was wonderful. The Villas are very clean, private, and stylish. Our host was very polite and helpful and I would recommend his outfit to anyone looking for a great place to stay.
