“Superb, far exceeded our expectations!”
Reviewed January 22, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Stayed here for 5-nights Jan 2014 whilst on holiday from the UK - it was the first accommodation that we had used on our holiday (having driven from Auckland airport - approx. 2 hours) and it got our holiday off to a great start. The remaining properties have a lot to live up to!

Difficult to add anything really meaningful to the glowing reviews of others. Suffice it to say that the house is beautifully appointed, well equipped and has superb views. Anne and David were great hosts in the main house next door but only seen when needed, so you are not overlooked at all. Lovely breakfast provisions upon arrival e.g. bread, butter, eggs, bacon, honey, orange juice, yoghurts, home made marmalade etc - all 'topped up' as and when needed. My wife has significant walking difficulties (but not a wheelchair user) and the house presented no difficulties - the entrance is directly from the car port,then just one step in. Then flat surface throughout, level decking, just one step down from the decking to the gardens.

As said, approx. 2-hours drive from Auckland which was fine as we had an overnight break en route but if flying long distances (e.g. from Europe) maybe consider stopping overnight somewhere first. Depends on driver etc. Good roads all the way, fairly straight for the first hour or so, then the second half is undulating and 'twisty' in parts - great driving roads. The house is just a few hundred yards off the main road with just the last short stretch on a good gravel road.

Information pack in the house (much appreciated) giving ideas for shopping, eating, beaches etc. Good supermarket (New World) about 20-mins away in the town of Whitianga.

In short, don't hesitate - the Coromandel is beautiful, far more scenic than we expected (even for NZ). Topped off by a superb house and hosts! Our biggest mistake was only staying for 5-nights!

This place is simply wonderful. It is a good size appartment with large windows instead of walls. You are surronded by a lovely garden and orange trees. The bed is very comfortable and wide. After sleeping like a lord, you wake up to the sound of beautiful birds.
Everything in the design and decoration of this place is well thought and well placed. It is a place of calm and peacefulness. If you like landscapes and animals, there are horses, sheep, huge trees and nice landscapes. The owners also have a kiwi plantation which is very interesting to see.
One of the best places we stayed in new zealand

“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!
