Flaxhaven Lodge
Ranked #22 of 42 Whitianga B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 8, 2007

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.

Wow what a find! John and Lee have created a most enjoyable accommodation that is within walking distance to the beach and the ferry to Whitianga. The property is new, clean and very comfortable located in a quiet garden setting. They are great hosts and even anticipated our need for a restaurant reservation when we arrived late on the first day. I wholeheartedly recommend Flaxhaven if you are planning a few days on the beautiful Coromandel peninsula.
