This property has only been open just over a year and i'm so glad we found it and spent three nights here.
The lodge has two rooms, which consist of a large bedroom, spacious bathroom, lounge with some kitchen facilities and outside decking area set in beautiful gardens (complete with a family of quail). They have been decorated to a very high standard.
It's just five minutes walk to the beach and you can get to Whitianga by ferry (2 minutes trip - $4 return) in just 15 mins walk.
John and Lee are perfect hosts, happy to advise on what's going on nearby, various walks, book restaurants on your behalf and they even lent us a shovel when we visited Hot Water Beach. They used to run an award winning cafe and the breakfasts at Flaxhaven were fantastic.
We were really sorry to leave Flaxhaven. If you want to stay in a beautiful part of the Coromandel but don't want to be in the main tourist area then this is the place to come - peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings with bars/restaurants a short walk / drive away.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Flaxhaven Lodge is uniquely situated alongside picturesque Flaxmill Bay, near Cathedral Cove Marine Reserve and Hot Water Beach, yet central to countryside and town. 4 white safe sandy beaches and a great restaurant are within a few minutes walk. At Flaxhaven Lodge there is a glimpse of the sea, but essentially this is a garden setting, spacious quiet and peaceful yet with bars/restaurants a short walk, drive or quaint ferry ride away. ... more less
