My wife and I visited the north Island as a part of our honeymoon during mid-June. We only had a few days in New Zealand before continuing to our next destination so we wanted to make the most of it with the limited time available. We wanted to ride somewhere in the Coromandel and we are SO happy that we found this gem of a place. It was one of our greatest highlights!
The owner, Andrea, was professional and super friendly and made this an amazing experience for us. We were fortunate to hit great weather that let out the full colors of their paradise of a ranch! We went uphill to a peak that overlooked Mercury Bay to the east and Whangapoua Harbour to the west. WOW! On the way back we stopped by a fresh water stream, tasty and beautiful! In case you go there during the winter time, as we did, I suggest an afternoon ride in order to avoid early morning cold weather. Our weather was perfect! The ride lasted around 2 hours.
Oh, and if all that weren't enough, at the end of the ride I've noticed that, clumsily, I must have lost my sunglasses somewhere during the ride. Not a big deal but just a little disappointing. Andrea, the owner, took note of it, and against all odds found my shades the next day and shipped them back to our home, back in the US! Maybe it's just the Kiwi culture :) but we were left dazzled.
