Location + Surroundings

This delightful cottage is located near Karangahake's famous gorge near Paeroa, at the foot of the Coromandel Peninsula on New Zealand's North Island. Steeped in Māori, gold mining and railway history, the road between Waihi and Paeroa is one of the country's most exciting and fascinating drives. This cottage is ideally placed for accessing the Hauraki Rail Trail, one of New Zealand's best-known cycle tracks. The sandy beaches and sparkling waters that make the peninsula one of the country's most popular holiday destinations are just half an hour away. Newcomers to the area can take a trip to the vibrant city of Auckland with its iconic sky tower, just an hour and a half from the cottage.

Another popular destination is the Karangahake Gorge Historic Walkway that runs alongside the sparkling Ohinemuri River. From the Ohinemuri River Waikino station, guests can hop on a vintage train to the fascinating gold rush town of Waihi. The Bay of Plenty's well-loved Waihi Beach is only 25 minutes by car, where guests can surf, paddle-board or just relax on the white sand. Other local activities include trout fishing in the river, farm visits, golf and antique shopping in Paeroa.
