“stunning location, very hospitable owner, resulting in a great b” Turning up from the UK for Christmas with two small children, we were slightly apprehensive about what we would find.
Jill welcomed us with open arms, the place was perfect - great views, fantastic facilities - we couldn't have asked for more. Jill was very helpful and friendly - making sure we were OK, and offering up suggestions as to what to do with the kids, but at the same time leaving us to our own devices as well.
We loved the views, and sitting there on Christmas day with crayfish, a glass of wine and two contented kids was just how we had imagined spending Christmas away from home.
There is so much to do on the Coromandel, and each day was a new adventure. The weather (it rained a bit) didn't stop us, and all in all, this trip has given us a taste of NX, and we can't wait to come back and see more.
“Unbelievably beautiful location.” Orchard Home Stay was a perfect location for my husband and myself. It is roughly half way between Whitianga and the Hot Water Beach (20-25 min drive) and Hahei Beach with the famous Cathedral Cove refuge. A great jumping off location to explore the local area. Anne and David were wonderful hosts making us feel right at home from the onset. They are both knowledgeable about the Coromandel and offered a number of suggestions of spots to visit.
The accommodation is modern and comfortable; looking out on pastures below and the Coromandel Range in the distance. It was a very relaxing location to return to after a day at the beach or touring or just to relax on the deck.
