Our hosts were extremely welcoming with excellent local knowledge. They told us of a simply wonderful, unspoilt beach that few others in the area had even heard of - finding this beach was a highlight of our North Island experience. They also drove us to Cathedral Cove car park to start our walk along the cliffs: the car park gets very full early in the day so this was very helpful. And they provided a shovel for our Hot Water Beach experience! Laundry was done for us at no extra charge.
Cathedral Cove is an hour’s walk, Hot Water Beach a 20 minute drive from the B&B. Coromandel town is an hour’s drive over the 309 gravel road, or a bit longer on a paved road.
Breakfasts were excellent and served outside on the big deck. There is an excellent hot tub that we used each night. Parking was easy and the wifi worked well.
We had a large room with a view out to the ocean. However, larger people may find the shower enclosure a challenge as it isn’t very big. The bed was big and comfortable and the area is quiet and dark - a good place to see stars on a moonless night.
This is an excellent and very welcoming B&B to explore the Coromandel area.
Our hosts recommended the Church restaurant, which is a 10 minute walk away; this restaurant was very good.
