“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed March 4, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Cottage was set in the most beautiful of landscapes overlooking rolling countryside with forest covered hills as the backdrop, sitting on the terrace of an evening watching the sun set was pure perfection. Cottage squeaky clean, very comfortable bed and sofa in lounge. Excellent kitchen & bathroom facilities, friendly helpful hosts - a wonder stay.

“Everything one could want”
Reviewed June 14, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed for 4 days and found The Orchard homestay to be ideally located between Whiting and Hot Water Beach. The cottage was spick and span and very well equipped. Anne kindly worried if we were warm enough but the cottage was very cosy with winter sun streaming in all day. The bed was as good as our bed at home. The views were spectacular. We were also lucky enough to catch the tail end of the feijoa season. Anne and David have a massive feijoa hedge and we were able to gorge ourselves.

We had drinks with Anne and David on our last night and it was like hanging out with old friends. My favourite member of the family was Bruno, a chocolate Lab who like his owners was not obtrusive but very welcoming.

We stayed for 4 nights and cannot have been happier. Anne and David were very hospitable and the apartment was of the highest standard. Fresh fruit from the garden and very relaxing.

“Delightful in every way”
Reviewed February 11, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This is a beautifully appointed property with lovely views over the farm below and the hills beyond, yet still convenient for the beach. We had lovely evenings eating on the verandah, one of them shared with Anne and David our interesting and helpful hosts. Definitely one to revisit.

“Perfect base to explore the Coromandel Peninsula”
Reviewed April 3, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The Orchard Cottage is an elegant retreat with huge windows overlooking a beautiful rural vista where attention to detail is second to none (you'll even find a beach spade to dig yourself into the sand at Hot Water Beach). We were welcomed with a fruit platter, a bowl of garden flowers and a fridge full of top quality breakfast goodies. Though you'll travel slightly further to visit all the Coromandel Peninsula has to offer, the quality of this cottage in a beautiful setting more than offsets a few extra kilometres. The hosts, Anne and David, are charming and professional. This place is a hidden gem!

“Paradise”
Reviewed February 16, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Together with my wife and two young kids we had the pleasure to stay here in mid February 2015. After arriving in the dark on a Friday night we settled in. In the morning we woke and pulled back the curtains to reveal the most glorious rolling country views. The apartment was extremely well appointed with all the mod cons you could expect and wonderfully clean. The kids had a fantastic time exploring the farm itself and with day trips to Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach only a short drive it made for some exciting & relaxing times. Beautiful sunsets to be enjoyed from the Cottage deck. Would highly recommend and would definitely come and stay again.
