“Idyllically-located piece of earth!”

Heading to Coroglen by night and to The Orchard Homestay, we can only guess at the beauty of this idyllically-located piece of earth. In the midst of nature with a flock of sheep in front of the veranda and surrounded by a citrus orchard with views of the Coromandel Ranges, this modern, self-contained cottage is the perfect retreat for relaxing and making trips to the sea. Our lovely hosts Anne and David treat us to a chicken curry when we arrive ... more infos on our trip through New Zealand? — get our AORTICA Magazine, N°02.

We stayed for a week with Anne and David and they were so welcoming and helpful. Their attention to detail and local knowledge made our stay unforgettable. The homestay is modern and spotless, with a really comfortable bed. The location is perfect for exploring some of the highlights of the Coromadel. If you enjoy waking up in the peace of the countryside with stunning views from the deck then this is the place for you.

“Just perfect”
Reviewed September 16, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We loved our overnight stay here. The accommodation is modern and spacious with every need taken care of - portacot and high chair for our little one, well equipped kitchen with the essentials for a cooked breakfast on offer, underfloor heating - so warm and cosy, and all in such a beautiful setting. Anne and David were very friendly and hospitable - great hosts!

“Home away from Home in the countryside”
Reviewed March 21, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

This lovely homestay was just what the doctor ordered! Rest and respite from the crazy world we inhabit.

The cottage was just perfect. What you see on the internet is exactly what you get beautifully appointed accommodation surrounded by stunningly pretty farmland and mountain vistas.

What you don't see on the net, is of course, your hosts. Anne and David are a delightful couple who are warm and welcoming. We spent several evenings during our week long stay enjoying each others company over a good glass of red. You can choose to have as much to do with them as you like or as little.

This homestay is a must when visiting The Coromandel Coast, New Zealand. So, don't miss it. And whilst there, don't miss the gorgeous little markets held down the road at the Gum Town Hall.

This homestay deserves your patronage because it has all the right ingredients, as they say, for a fantastic holiday!
