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!"

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Excellent self contained cottage. Set in an awesome position with the beach (almost) on your door step. All the mod-cons you could ever need and a great base for hitting the highlights of the Coromandel. Would definitely recommend!

  • Everything was as described. What an awesome area, just what we were looking for, quiet - it is May! Great location with the river so close as well as the sea. Only 15 minutes to Whitianga too which has or those bits you might forget to take with you. Thanks Liz and Mike, Im recommending your place to friends

  • We loved the place including having outside breakfast and dinner, kayaking in the morning and a beer at sundown on the patio. Walking to the beach and spending quite time! We will spread the word about the Wild Thyme. Thanks again.Ciao The Wellners.

  • We had a lovely, relaxing stay at Wild Thyme. The cottage was cozy and well-equipped, and the amazing beach was practically deserted when we were there mid-March. It's a short drive to Whitianga where we had a great meal out at the Bay Brewery Bistro, and Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach are both doable in a day trip from the cottage. All in all, a great stay!

  • Amazing accommodation in Coromandel! We had a wonderful "thyme" in wild thyme at the sea. Everything very tidy and clean and very well organized! We wish you all the best!

  • Our little family (dog included) had a healthy, relaxing weekend here. It was wonderful to have the river so close and the sea only a bit further away. The tap water was lovely and we loved that the whole place was fenced and the gardens were full of 'useful' plants. The kayaks were a bonus. It was pretty quiet and there was a lot to do. We'll be back!

Holiday homes, skippers,
Come and explore the Bay of Plenty. We live locally and enjoy meeting the different guests we have come to stay. We have hosted people for many years; we have travellers on a cultural exchange as well as own & run holiday homes. We travel extensively & just this year we used Airbnb in Europe & loved it. Cant wait to use it again. It also gives us an insight to what travellers need & like.
