The property has stunning views of the Kauaeranga River, and across the racecourse to the Firth of Thames and the Pinnacle mountains. The house is set in an acre of garden, which has plenty of outdoor furniture for guest enjoyment. Birdlife, both native and domestic, is abundant. We have a luxurious spa pool in a private garden setting available for use by our guests. We have safe, off-street parking for vehicles. Please note, the room rate quoted on this site is per room per night for two people. Guest AccessGuests have access to a guest lounge and all of our lovely gardens. There is a fridge in the guest lounge. Interaction with GuestsWe will welcome guests when they arrive and show them to their room. Check in is from 3.30pm and complimentary afternoon tea is provided. A cooked and continental breakfast is served in the dining room and is included in the room rate. We live in the main house. The NeighborhoodThames is known as the “gateway to the Coromandel” – one of the most stunning and diverse parts of New Zealand. Thames township is a short drive from fabulous beaches, world class bush walks, historic gold mine remains and museums and timber trails. It is a boaties’ paradise and a drawcard for cyclists now that the cycleway to Waihi is complete. The Kauaeranga River runs right through the Kauaeranga Valley and during the summer it is well known for its swimming holes and DOC camp sites. From the end of the valley road there are several well-marked walks for varying fitness levels. Maps and advice for all of these walks can be obtained from the DOC Visitors Centre based near the end of the valley road. A visit to the Coromandel is not complete without a visit to the Karangahake Gorge. This was the site of the country’s second most productive goldmine in the 1870’s. From the carpark at Karangahake, visitors can take a number of scenic walks alongside the beautiful Ohinemuri and Waitawheta rivers. Particularly unique is the Windows Walk which takes you through tunnels high above the river. There are several ‘windows’ blasted out through the walls of the tunnel, from which the views are spectacular. The whole area is full of gold mining relics as you follow the Ohinemuri River to Waikino, the site of the Victoria Battery. There is a small museum and enormous quartz roasting kilns, which are open to the public. Opposite this site is the Waikino Station Café, from where you can take the 6km trip to Waihi on the cute Goldfields Railway during weekends and summer months. The gorge has a number of excellent cafes and other great tourist and family attractions. The drive up the coast from Thames to Coromandel is stunning, especially around Christmas when the pohutukawa trees are in full bloom with their scarlet blossoms. Take time to stop at the lookout points on the hills approaching Coromandel. As you drive north there are numerous attractions worth stopping at – the Butterfly Gardens, Rapaura Water Gardens, art galleries and a detour along the 309 Rd. There you will come across some quirky ways of killing time. It won’t be long before you come upon Stu the pig man, with his 55 pet pigs. A kilometre further along is the Waiau Waterworks, a fun park full of water-themed activities for the young and the young-at-heart. Also on the 309 Rd, the Waiau Falls and the kauri walks are a short, easy walk from the road. If time permits the climb up Castle Rock, otherwise known as The Sleeping Giant, is well worth the effort for the fantastic views from the top. Getting AroundThere is intercity bus services connecting Thames with Auckland, Hamilton and Tauranga. Free parking at the house. We can pick up guests within the Thames area for free. Other Things to NoteWe have three guest rooms, all with their own bathroom, TV, wifi access, heating, tea and coffee-making facilities, and personal safe. Please note, the room rate quoted on this site is per room per night for two people. All rooms have their own entrance, separate from the main house. The french doors all open to a sunny terrace, and from there the views are to die for. Guests have direct access to the guest lounge/conservatory and dining room.
