Had an amazing, relaxing getaway in this slice of heaven. Have absolutely no complaints, except for the fact that we had to leave after 3 nights! The bath house - is a must see! So relaxing on our last night. Also there is a shared kitchen/living/outdoor area that we made use of, it was like being in our own home, but better! Debbie and Ernst are the perfect hosts, and even gave us a bottle of wine after we realised we had no time to make it to the shops (first night). They are super friendly, informative and will make you feel so welcome you won’t want to leave! We will definitely be back, once our schedules allow us.. 11/10

What a blessing to visit this secluded haven for our 10th wedding anniversary! The journey there was like unfolding a most magnificent gift, the anticipation for what lies beyond the next bend continuously building. And then to arrive, so well met by Tam and Charles and their unbelievable abode. There are trails to follow in the rain-forest with well appointed seating to take in the surroundings, two private outdoor baths/ spa where you feel so immersed in nature and decadence, and very generously apportioned rooms. We could have contented ourselves just in our room (King Snug) - the facilities and comfort met every need and desire- restorative bed (high-praise from this pea-traumatised Princess!), kettle, beverage selection, toaster and cereal, mini fridge for own supplies, tv and dvd player, comfy armchairs, great high-pressure shower, and an outdoor setting with a BBQ. There was also a shared kitchen/ dining/ chill area with BBQ, electric hot plates, microwave and a mini cooker and large fridge, so you could cook your own meals if you brought supplies (why didn't I check your actual website so I knew this!! Gah!! (URL HIDDEN) ). Next time we will do this as we would want to soak up as much of the space as we could. Of course, Whitianga is only a 10-15 minute drive away, so very easy to pop out for dinner or grab some things from the supermarket. & then you get to experience the joy of returning! We spent most of our time peacefully reading and snoozing, which was just perfect for these two very tired parents of small wee beasties, so were able to happily return to our duties with a lighter heart. Thank you Tam and Charles!

Agree with the previous reviews when they say, the only problem was not staying long enough! Take the opportunity to really explore this property; it is a real gem. After a long trip, this was a great place to recharge... or if you need to re coup from jet lag at the beginning of a trip, this would be the perfect spot. My favourite part was laying in the hammocks by the river for hours on end in complete solitude. Would 100% recommend this place to anyone!

Stay here as long as you can! Don't leave. Because you'll immediately miss the place. An absolute gem of a place in the world. Wouldn't recommend anywhere else in Coromandel! The private bath house was unbelievable. There's also a private spa and a separate/private kitchen and lounge area. The room was clean, cozy, and comfortable. Debbie and Earnst were lovely hosts, as they were kind enough to accommodate our late arrival and give us useful information regarding the region, property and directions to the OASIS. ONE OF THE MOST MAGICAL PLACES I'VE EVER BEEN TO. A must do.

Hosts were incredible, definitely made us feel welcome and had so much information for us. Everything was pristine, from the interiors to the property itself. Fantastic views, and plenty to do on the property. We will definitely be booking with Tam & Charles again.
