The SpaceTo all our future visitors from your hosts Bill and Bev Gausden,
" Hello and Welcome"
When you stay with us, we offer you a picturesque and private space,
at our relaxing homestead.
We live in a small friendly waterside village with a well equipped shop,
which includes a selection of local wines, and a fast food outlet.
Approximately 5 minutes drive up the road to Waiomu Beach you will find a delightful cafe, (photos below)
We will enjoy our beach within walking distance, (100mts) and many other soul enhancing walks, some of which take you under enormous local Pohutukawa trees.
On many evenings, we are blessed with stunning sunsets over the Firth of Thames as it weaves its way towards the Coromandel township some 45 minutes north of here. This is the time to sip a glass of delicious New Zealand wine.
We have years of local knowledge, and can advise on family activities or a more soothing "break away from it all"
Come visit with us in this delightful beach-side village, at the Coromandel

Therefore, as guests in our home, you may use the front door or your own private entrance if your prefer your solitude. There is plenty of off-street parking for all types of vehicles and a walkway to the front door, if, by chance, it should be raining.
We are "Mobility Friendly" with level grounds outside and wheelchair access.
Also...... room for your BOAT AND TRAILER Interaction with GuestsWe like guests to be part of our family, enjoy our fun, and laughter. We have two quiet little girls (under 10 years) who also love meeting new people, particularly when there are children to play with - this is a great place for your family holiday.
Tell us about you and your holiday, we will do what we can to enhance your experience here, let's share some time together.
Of course, we respect your privacy, your room is totally separate from our space and there are many opportunities to find those quiet moments in the beautiful surrounds of our village and beach. The NeighborhoodOur beachside village is a great place for your holiday. It is safe, peaceful, friendly, has the neighbourly local stare and is close to may attractions.
Thames township, 10 minutes away and has wonderful cafe's, shops and a hospital.
There is a magnificent beach front cafe only 5 minutes drive from our home and you can enjoy the renowned, stunningly breathtaking coastal drive to the Coromandel village in just under an hour.
We are also perfectly situated for major attractions such as Hot Water Beach, Catherdral Cove, awesome surfing to be had right on the Pacific Ocean. There is much more to explore...This truly is "The Gateway" - You will have a wonderful time!! Getting AroundA bus service all along the coast has a stop just minutes from our home.
Alternatively, a very nice ferry ride, 40 minutes up the coast, goes directly to central Auckland and Waiheke Island - we highly recommend this if only for the enjoyment of the travel experience on one of our lovely sunny days. Other Things to NoteTu Puru, has a lot of pre-European history, because it is the largest sand flat
on this side of the peninsular, we would love to share some of it with you.
Come and share some time with us.
