Our lovely chalet in the forest
We stayed in a lovely little chalet. It has a small kitchenette with gas hob, microwave, fridge, kettle and toaster. There is also a bbq on the deck. It has its own bathroom and double bed downstairs and single bed with pull out upstairs. There is also a tv with freeview box. Very clean modern interior. Staff were very friendly and helpful. No mobile phone reception on site serong as your in a valley but there is free 100mb wifi per device per day. Overall we were really happy with our stay and plan to go back next year

seclusion in the bush
Spent 2 nights here In 2 bedroom cabin...3 adults and one child. Fully equipped with all kitchen utensils. Set in the bush. Unfortunately weather was atrocious for most of the time but we were able to wander through some of the bush tracks and along the riverside. Even saw the glowworms. Nice drive up to Coromandel town and had the weather been better could have spent time wandering along the many beaches and rocks along the foreshore. Owners very friendly and helpful. Would be a great place to stay in the summer

The blessing that was our host gave us...yes at no charge...fresh eggs as ours had come to a sad demise...and then free dvd's as it was the one rain day of our holiday. Once you get over the surprise of walking into your nanas 1960 bach you will settle into the couch or bed warm and cosy. Beautiful setting, bird life abound, was peaceful, thank you.

The owners are lovely and the grounds and river are very beautiful! However the drive is very steep and rough gravel! The lodge we stayed at had a very antique feel and a bit time warpish! If you over look the peeling paint and old fashioned kitchen it’s quirky and interesting! WiFi is available but limited! An interesting stay but not for those who want modern, chic and sterile! This is definitely a unique stay!

Great getaway from the busy city life!
Love the cottage surrounded by nature! Enjoyed the chill river and quietness! Exceptional hospitality, Murray and family were very friendly and helpful to provide information on where to go and what to explore around the area. Our cottage was fully equipped with everything we need; pots and pans are all well maintained too. Would have been great if I had bring some books to read on the balcony while enjoying the quiet nature. It calms our hearts and slow us down from the fast pace. It's a great place to spend quality time with loved ones. Me and my parents had a lovely 2 nights stay!

Short trip to Coromandel
Great location in the bush yet just off the main toad. Classic Kiwi bach experience. Comprehensive advice on local area.

Hefty price not to have check in until 2.00pm & out by 10.00am the next day. There was some rubbish found under our bed. For the price we paid, we would have expected the shower to run properly. It would suddenly go cold, or scorching hot. They also ask you to have short showers, very odd. We could hear the people in the cottage next door as if they were in ours. A bit of work needs doing. I stayed there 4 times approx 10 yrs ago & loved it. I wont be going back.
