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!"
Please note that even though our holiday homes have all cooking facilities, BBQ etc, they are not serviced daily. They provide an independent holiday experience, which enables us to keep our prices lower. Please bring your own supplies including tea, coffee, sugar etc.

GRAYS BEACH, right across the road is ideal for swimming, boating, boogie boarding, windsurfing & body surfing.. Sometimes the waves are big enough for surfing. At the western end of the beach mussels can be obtained off the beach at low tide ..After a big storm, scallops are often washed up onto the beach
FISHING is excellent in this area; especially for snapper. A boat ramp is situated 500 metres away on the road to Kuaotunu. Please clean your fish outside in the sink next to the outside toilet.
KAYAKS are for your use & are situated in the locked area under “Wild Thyme”.
Enjoy this beautiful area & have a wonderful time.You will need to bring your own food & supplies as there are no shops at Kuaotunu.
There is a café at the camp next door & also at Kuaotunu settlement on the Blackjack road.
Whitianga is approx 15 minutes away & Coromandel 20 mins away.
With thanks, Liz & Mike.
Great accomodation ! Beautiful area and beach.
Very nice location, if you like beaches especially for kids.
It's a great location, short walk from the beach and very comfortable home. Everything you need for a beach side holiday is available: bbq grill, outdoor shower to rinse off, kayaks, etc.
The closest town is 15kms away (Whitianga), so plan accordingly to get food and any groceries if planning to cook.
The location doesn't have any cell phone coverage, and the wifi is a little sketchy. Perfect if you want to be disconnected and just enjoy the place.
Overall a very good experience.
Easy check in.
Everything you need for a comfortable stay. Lovely view of the little river as well as the ocean. Big, well-equipped kitchen.
We were sad to leave after two nights, because we loved the house so near to the beach. Like and Mike were very friendly and helpful. The house was perfect and romantic so close to the beach, with the view on the beach. There was a great kitchen and bathroom and the place for bbq. We like to come back!!
All as described and an amazing location. Well equipped kitchen, great shower, etc.
We stayed near the end of November and it basically felt like we had the beach to ourselves. If you wake early (jet lag?), I recommend getting up for dawn - the birdsong, sea in the background, and light is totally incredible. The local ducks are very friendly and seem to be used to visitors.
On the way, keep your eyes open for the turning - we missed it first time round. And we stopped in Thames on the way, which seems to be the least nice of the local towns - go on to Coromandel or past White Thyme to Whitianga instead.
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!

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.
