Welcome to our home, a recently renovated gold mining cottage nestled in the hills above the stunning Karangahake Gorge, at the base of the Coromandel.

With roots dating back to pre 1900’s, this cottage is bursting with character and little pieces of history. Perfect for a cosy weekend away!

Wake up to the sound of Tuis and Fantails playing in the trees, and enjoy a cup of tea or Milo on the verandah, overlooking Mount Karangahake.

The guest suite is situated at the front of the house, and the owners live in a contemporary structure attached to the back. The cottage has a private entrance and is locked off from the rest of the house.

Within your dedicated personal space, you’ll have use of private parking, the verandah and front gardens.
