A comment from a visitor; "Wow; I've stayed in many holiday homes and these are in a class of their own. As well as the location and design, the warmth and creativity of these homes are unforgettable.
Thanks for having them so spotlessly clean and organised. It makes them a pleasure to stay in, and a pleasure to leave them that way for the next guests to enjoy.
We'll be back!"

Das Haus war wunderschöne und es gibt alles was man braucht. Super sauber und gemütlich. Einen wunderschönen Strand. Alles war perfekt. Vielen Dank
we got the house to our selfs and it was great. Everything that a family of two adults and two small children could need was there.
On our way there we passed the town Coromandel, a very small and quite nice place, but really no place for grovceries - Waitangi is the prefered place for shopping.
The roads are very winding so you cannot trust the GPS measurments when it comes to time.
Thyme Out by the Sea was a perfect little spot to take our family who were visiting from the UK. The place is exactly as you see in the ad and is in a fantastic location right by the creek and steps away from the beach. The kids loved being able to use the kayaks on the creek and the bodyboards in the sea. The deck and BBQ were great for dinner time with a lovely view. Close proximity to other beaches, only about 20 (ish) mins from the gorgeous New Chums Beach and about an hour (ish) from Cathedral Cove and Hahei. Woudl recommend the local cafe Luke's Place a few mins down the road too. Not a luxury cabin but very comfortable and clean with everything we needed.
We had a wonderful time at Thyme Out and Wild Thyme. Having both cottages was fantastic, and we made the most of the deck in between. Being so close to the beach was fantastic. Such a stunning location.
This was a fabulous place in an excellent location. Very neat and tidy and communication with the hosts was good. It had everything the handbook said and instructions were clear. A good time had by all. Beautiful views.
What a great stay! We were tired from travel and needed exactly what we found when a we arrived! The cabin is beautiful and situated very close to the beach! Beautiful sunsets and sunrises! We loved it so much and the fact that our luggage ha not yet arrived in Auckland, we opted to stay another day! Perfect!
