An extremely private, beautiful native bush setting, The villa was very well equipped (totally self contained), immaculately presented with great indoor-outdoor flow, a covered deck area and Japanese hot tub. The area itself offered a variety of experiences and close proximity to town made for easy access. Too much to see and do in one weekend, we will certainly return...

All we wanted for our 4 days vacation in Coromandel. The most beautiful villa has all you need and more for self catering stay. Surrounded by amazing nature, birds, river and stunning view. And hot tub is nice in the evening when it gets a bit chilly in early November. We were so lucky with the weather which was stunning...

I was terrified of visiting Coromandel because it’s utterly unique, peaceful and incredibly beautiful. If that sounds like an oxymoron, it is, but my trepidation came from having grown up in the Township. After an absence of almost 20 years, I dreaded the prospect of seeing my idyll ravaged by ‘progress’. Given my fears, I wasn’t sure how I felt...

Our stay at driving creek villas was really good. The beds were very comfortable and there was lots of space. The garden was amazing and the hot tub was a highlight even in the rain. One minor negative was that the shower was a very fine spray and went all over the bathroom. Would definitely stay here again and would...

Ideal location for us as we had a mates wedding 500metres down the road at Hush. Met the owner David, who was very accommodating. Beautiful surroundings and very tidy Villa. I wish we could have stayed a lot longer.

The property looked amazing on the website and was even better on arrival. Tucked away in the bush, yet within 5 minutes drive of good eating places in Coromandel Town.The villa is immaculate, lots of attention to detail and very homely whilst being extremely spacious. David was more than helpful in his suggestions as to places to visit. We loved...

After hours of dedicated work for the weekend long Pacifika Festival in Auckland a bunch of us jumped in a minivan and drove out to the Coromandels. Once we arrived to driving creek villas in was home away from home. David and his crew were right on top of things. From jump starting our dead car battery to assisting one...
