Welcome to beautiful Waihi Beach, at the base of the world famous Coromandel Pennisula. One block from the beach, a full service cafe/restaurant on the waterfront 50 metres from the doorstep. Towels, bedding, kitchen gear provided. Private garden setting, bush walks, public tennis courts. A 3rd generation family home.
The house is situated in a central location, with the village shops just a 5 minute walk in one direction, and the surf club in the other. The beach is a 2 minute walk from the house. The house is a renovated authentic New Zealand family beach house built in 1952. There is a new Heat Pump installed to keep you warm if you come during the winter months, and cool in the summer. The controller is fixed to the post in the centre of the room and is easy to use.
Guests will have access to the entire downstairs area of the house, including a large bedroom with a queen size bed, and single bed. There is also a very comfortable double sofa bed in the living area that folds out to sleeps two. All linen and sheets is in the big wardrobe in the bedroom. The kitchen is fully outfitted with all cutlery, plates, pots and gourmet pans, etc. There are laundry facilities and a full shower and bath. There is a private, full garden section in both the front and back yards, landscaped with tropical plants.
It is our family beach house, so it is expected that guests will treat it appropriately and respect our personal items. The upstairs area will be locked and not available to guests. The house is not "child-proofed" and it is assumed any small children will be closely supervised while on the property.
Interaction with guests
We are not in residence while guests are in the house, but neighbours will be available to help with questions and settling in.
Other things to note
There is a minimum two night stay, and a cleaning fee of $75.00 will apply, which includes laundry of sheets and towels. Please run around with the vacuum, and leave the kitchen and bathroom areas as you find them. All cleaning gear is in the laundry on the shelves. Please use the green garbage bags found in the drawers by the fridge, and put it out on the wall in front of the house by 9 am Monday mornings for collection.
There are permanent residents all around the area, and it is expected that there will not be excess noise to disturb them. The house and garden should be left as it is found, and no damage incurred to either. No pets please. Absolutely no smoking while on the property.
There is a shared driveway to a rear property which cannot be blocked at any time, but lots of parking is available on the street and verge.
Mark and I love sharing our piece of paradise with travellers, and love travelling ourselves. We love the outdoors and nature, and know you will find Waihi Beach the perfect place if you do too!
