Kick Back and Relax in front of the fire in a warm and pleasant home. Maybe a glass of wine or a beer or two to finish a great day. We have a very modern house with great views Note, There is no cooking facilities in the house apart from our microwave We please ask you to respect this as a replacement cost is very expensive
We have a coastal property with no close neighbors with stunning views of the Firth of Thames We are 4 kms north of Thames and 1 hour 30 min from Auckland international airport We are in close proximity to the rail trail , the pinnacles etc We have 1 cat who apparently owns the house ,but doesn’t do anything around here to help We have no problem with smokers but there is no smoking in the house Smokers can smoke on the deck which is under cover
A quiet neighbourhood

    Thames, Waikato, New Zealand

    Nestled amongst a beautiful private jungle garden and citrus orchard, only a few steps away from the beach. This beachside get-away is perfect for solo travellers and couples. The spacious cabin and separate full bathroom were completely renovated in July 2017. Equipped with all the necessities you need for a relaxed stay. Enjoy the peace and curl up with a book or wander along the stunning Coromandel coastline. A perfect spot for swimming, fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking or even kitesurfing.
    Our guests love the location, with the cabin in amongst the fruit trees listening to birdsong and just a few steps to the beach, it really is ideal. We are passionate about the environment and have used recycled materials where possible. The cabin is set in a citrus fruit orchard, help yourself to free fruit ! We love travelling and have made our space as cosy as possible, we always welcome new ideas and feedback. If you want the perfect getaway, away from the city, away from WIFI, just pure chill and relax, you will find it here. The cabin can be set up with an additional single bed (floor mattress) including bedding, ideal for a child or additional guest.
    The neighbourhood is very friendly, people will say hello. There is a fantastic coffee shop / cafe / restaurant / pizzeria only 5 minutes drive away. Small shop with takeaways about a 5-10 minute walk. Thames is 10-15 min drive (i recommend driving slowly to enjoy the breathtaking view) and there you will find a full supply of shops, supermarkets, the famous Saturday markets and much more
  • The place was super cool and a great stay with your own private bathroom and kitchen which was lovely! Very cute stay that had privacy, was clean, and a nice space to relax in 😊

    Nicole2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy & romantic cabin set beside a beautiful beach on the coast. Glass of wine to watch the sunset was a great tip by the host. Super comfy bed, clean and well designed space. We could only stay the one night but would highly recommend staying longer!

    Darragh2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Natalie and Craig’s place is a perfect getaway - we came just for a couple of nights to have a break while the grandparents looked after the kids, and it couldn’t have been better. The beach is literally seconds away, the cabin itself is cosy and secluded, and Natalie and Craig are very attentive hosts, whilst also giving you total privacy. We will (hopefully!) be back.

    Ruth2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful cabin, really a special place to be! If you are a bit tall (1,80m +) be prepared not to be able to stand up straight in all of the cabin. Did not matter much to us anyway, we had a great time! Natalie and Craig put up a mosquito net, which is very helpful as there are quite some of them. In short: recommended!

    Huub2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay in the tiny house. Natalie was very accommodation and gave us great recommendations when we arrived. The little touches in the place made it very homely and we wished we could have stayed for more than one night. The place is right on the beach so great to relax, have a swim and watch the sunset. Very nice to unwind for a short stay.

    Martin2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • A good retreat after a hard days travelling. All very good value! You have your own private space and are just a few paces away from the beach. One downside I found, although the host provides a microwave, hot plate, saucepan and frying pan there are no dishes to use to put in microwave or to whip an egg up. This makes cooking very difficult!

    Sarah2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Surprising on the outside but the interior was perfectly functional the necessary for cooking and clean

    Marc2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Private little cabin with a comfortable bed. Very friendly host, and an extra large size bar fridge which held all our cold goods and bottles with ease. I would recommend it, it was really nice. Great access to the beach. Loved travelling to explore all of Coromandel.

    Our house is located in the edge of town with all the amenities close by yet very quiet. The bedroom has a queen bed, dresser, fan etc. There are shared toilet and shower. Guests can use the kitchen and outdoor dining as required.
    House is quite and conveniently located with lots of trees around.
    I love the easy walk to local shops, restaurants, community pool, and essential services. The Hauraki rail trail just around the block for cycling or walking and the beach is about 5 minutes drive....
  • Jubin's place is homey and clean, and he is friendly and considerate. We were able to share some fridge space. Malem&Ross

    Beach front retreat designed to escape the real world for a time. Swim in the ocean, collect shells off the beach. Surfcast off the deck. Relax, unwind and be lulled off to sleep with the soothing sounds of the sea. During the summer months, extravagances include breathtaking sunrises/sunsets over the ocean. Stay cool and comfortable on these hot summer nights with quiet, air conditioning. Embrace the season and take advantage of the spectacular magical Coromandel, with all she has to offer.
    RIGHT on the beach with nothing between you and the sea, swim in the ocean and surfcast from the deck. A romantic and private space, to be enjoyed indoors, or outdoors from the large front deck. This 2017 built, architicually designed retreat offers the latest of high spec, quality chattels and household effects. Clean, airy, new and fresh. The interior is stylishly decorated - this is definitely NOT your typical holiday house. The air con keeps the house cool and refreshing in the summer, and warm and cosy in the winter months.
    Tapu is a charming beach town with a pub and restaurant, local dairy, school, art gallery, camping ground and boat rental. Everything is a few minutes walk from the holiday retreat and you could put away the car keys for your entire stay. But if you to venture further afield, Thames is only 20 minutes down the coast. Great cafes are 5-10 minutes away, Hot Water Beach and Cathedral Cove are 50 minutes to the east. Coromandel town is just 40 minutes north. Launch your boat at the end of the beach or the all tide Waikawau Boat Ramp is a 10 minutes drive up the coast. You can walk to fresh water swimming holes.
  • By far the best accommodation we have stayed in. A lot of thought and effort has gone in to making this place so special. Really did not want to leave!

    Ben2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • A beautifully furnished modern bach in an ideal location. The views out to the bay where awesome. The Coromandel Peninsula is wonderful and a beautiful place to explore.

  • Rojo and his wife were lovely though - they went out of their way to return my phone charger that I had left behind!! The room is basic, it would be a good addition to have a bedside light. It was great to be able to use the washing machine.

    Laura2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    María Alejandra2020-02-15T00:00:00Z

    "Wens Place" is a delightful 1 bedroom cottage in a peaceful and private bush setting. Fully self contained with everything you need to for a fabulous holiday. Set in the bush above the town, it has the tranquility of the bush but is only a few minutes from Thames. The hosts live next door but your privacy is assured. There is ample room to park your boat if required. Thames is the Gateway to the Coromandel Peninsula and is not far from all the beautiful beaches including Hot Water Beach.
    The bedroom has windows and french doors on three sides all surrounded by bush with pathways all around. Theres a deck leading from the frenchdoors with a BBQ. At the front of the cabin is a private outdoor patio with table, seating and an umbrella. inside is a pot belly fire with firewood supplied for those chilly evenings.
    The west coast of the peninsula is quite stunning and differs from the east coast (which has beautiful long, sandy beaches) in that a lot of the coastline is rocky with some sandy beaches. The rocks are covered in oysters and the mussel farms in the firth attract the fish, mainly snapper so the fishing over the farms is usually very successful. Being an old gold mining town theres some lovely old buildings and the hills around Thames are covered in old gold mines and shafts. Many of the walking tracks in the areas are dotted with old gold mine shafts, so if you're not keen on swimming, fishing or diving theres plenty of great walks with a bit of history thrown in.
  • Fantastic accommodation. Private, sparkling clean, comfortable with lots of lovely touches. Great location and so quiet. The road and driveway up to the premises is a bit bumpy, but fine when you get used to it! Would love to come and stay again.

    Janie2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place to stay, hosts make you feel welcome. Everything you need is there. Comfortable and cosy. Quirky and unique. Wish we had longer to stay.

    David2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • We felt so comfortable in this cabin. Very much like our home. I loved all the little retro and vintage touches around the place. My only wish is that I could have stayed there longer to appreciate your place and the beautiful surrounding. I am sure there would be some great local hikes around the property to enjoy. I especially loved the little couch area on the porch outside the bedroom. What a place to relax with a morning coffee!!

    Anita2020-02-28T00:00:00Z

  • This was our second time staying at Cherie's, still as nice as we'd expected.

    Siyi2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was great! Location was perfect for our travels on the way back towards Auckland. The property was gorgeous and the space was inviting. We were greeted by the cutest pup when we drove up, I believe his name was Fen. Then we were shown around the property a bit and got to say hello to the cows! Definitely a highlight! Cherie was amazing and super responsive, definitely made the process smooth and enjoyable while also giving lots of privacy. We really enjoyed our stay!

    Michelle2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • This accomodation is stunning. No question. From the moment you drive in you realise how special it is. Cherie and her husband have created a stylish, spacious and very tidy accomodation that has everything you need. The views from the windows out to the fields and cows are breathtaking. The bed was very comfortable and the water pressure in the shower was heaven. Easy 5 minute drive into main shops of Thames. We will definitely be booking this again.

  • Kathleen's place is located in the beautiful Kauaeranga valley close to the Pinnacles hike. You'll enjoy a stunning view of the valley while staying there. Kathleen is an attentive host and prepared an amazing breakfast before I headed out for my hike. Every morning I was greeted by Prince, the curious 1-year mini-horse :). Overall a lovely place to spend some quiet time.

  • Kathleen and her family were fantastic hosts. The surroundings and the house were amazing and the view from the terrace was stunning. Everything was like in the pictures. There was a lovingly prepared breakfast and I have received many tips for things to do in Coromandel. With the little horses, the llamas, dogs and cats, you really felt like you were on a farm. I highly recommend the place.

    Good for your Soul - the Coromandel slogan will make sense to you while using our self-contained apartment as a base, exploring the Coromandel + the Kauaeranga Valley. A large deck will spoil you with ample views of the hills and the firth of Thames.
    This is a self-contained flat just for you, with a big deck for relaxing and al fresco dining. The views across the hilly bush and the sea are inspiring. A fully equipped kitchen (benchtop hob) with dining area, a bathroom with shower, a bedroom for two, and a living room area with 3 beds if you are a family, are now waiting for you. Good unlimited WiFi (but no TV). Restore your energy levels here, breath and learn what the Coromandel and the Kauaeranga Valley have to offer you. Enjoy our provided breakfast and make a plan for each new day! Bushwalks in the immediate surroundings. Situated 3.5 km from town centre and coast in quiet residential area, at the entrance of the Kauaeranga Valley. Short bike ride or drive to waterholes for bathing, and seaside walks. Explore all the famous sites of the Coromandel and the more insider's places around us. For rainy days, we have lots of interesting literature about New Zealand, and you've got the hot pools of Miranda close by.
    We are located at the entrance to the Kauaeranga Valley with many bush walks and mountain climbing and abseiling into the gorge. Thames town centre with lots of Restaurants, Cafés and Museums is 3.5 km or 45 minutes walk / 5 minutes drive from us. There is a nice walk along the tidal shore where you can watch sea birds. 10 minutes drive up the coast from Thames there are sandy beaches good for bathing. Moreover, the whole Coromandel and most of Waikato is at your immediate reach for a half or a full day tour - there are so many wonderful places and beaches in close vicinity that any length of your stay will seem too short.... Thames is also the starting point for the newly opened Hauraki Rail Trail, a 50 km bicycle trail to Waihi - you can rent our electric bikes at a special discount price (we run an electric bikes rental as well). Whatever activity you might favour - hiking, biking, bathing, kayaking, paddeling, snorkeling, sightseeing, bird-watching, abseiling, fishing or just relaxing - we are able to give you lots of tips how to make the most out of your stay on the Coromandel Peninsula. And you will wish to come back. Matthias and Elena

    Carol2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place is so much more than the photo shows. The room is beautiful fresh and clean with a bathroom and outside entrance with quail families that visit in the morning. Lovely new fresh coverlets towels, new little fridge. But most outstanding is the setting in the native bush with a walkway down to a beautiful stream. I took a dip on arrival. Also great tips on a hike that I took in a Kauri forest. Birdsong and nice people - graham likes fiddle music so that is good in my books.

    Bev2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • All very nice

    Richard2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • I found everything very clean, neat, well organised and thoughtful. A flowing stream and nature, that I could hear in my room, added a beautiful calming sound to the visit. The hosts had provided all I needed and Graeme's breakfasts of scrabbled eggs one morning and poached the next were delicious.

    Dayle2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying with Heather and Graeme.

    Dayle2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Would thoroughly recommend this accommodation. Heather gave us a great welcome and looked after us, as well as tipping us off about a local walk which would not be obvious to passers by.

Our Thames/Peninsula Picks: -Thames Markets every Saturday from 8am - 12pm in Grahamstown, where you can shop for homegrown produce, including breads, pastries, cheeses, and fresh organic fruit and veges. -Cafe Melbourne, our pick definitely goes the way of the amazing Fish Curry & the Salted Caramel crackers, serving Allpress coffee. -Waiomu Beach Cafe & The Waiomu Kauris walk. The walk is beautiful but not to long or challenging, just enough that you feel you have earn't your Supreme coffee & delicious food. The cafe is located across the road from the beautiful Waiomu Beach (also worth a stroll along) -Pinnacles Walk. Yes I have done this once, I was unfit, but it was achievable and totally worth the day it takes to walk up, enjoy the view (& perhaps a packed lunch) and walk back down. The start of the walk is a 35 minute drive up the Kaueranga Valley from The Butterfly House Studio. There are a number of other walks, smaller but still as beautiful up the Kaueranga Valley. -Hauraki Rail Trail, hire bikes from our local bike store (Jolly Bikes) & head out on the rail trail, there are some beautiful cafes along the way (Matatoki Cheese Farm is usually my pit stop!). -Nakontong Thai Restaurant is one of our favourite local spots for dinner, fresh Thai cuisine with great service. -The Wharf Coffee House & Bar is a great spot for fish & chips, sit out on the rustic dock of the historic Shortland Wharf. -Day trip to New Chums beach, about a 1 hour 40 minute drive from Thames, you will see why it was voted one of The Lonely Planets top beaches in the world. -Cathedral Cove (also breath taking) - approx 1 hour 30 minute drive. You drive through Tairua, the perfect beach town to stop and enjoy a coffee. -Hot Water Beach, just be sure to check times as you want to go there at low tide - approx 1 hour 30 drive. Again driving through Tairua, which is full of cute cafes and food stops. -Head to Pauanui and climb Mt Pauanui for amazing views, also a great spot to learnt to surf or paddle board with our friends at The Outback Surfshop. -Cycling, weather it be training or riding the K2 loop around the Coromandel (the K2 is a 200 km bike race held on the peninsula in November) or hitting the trails, we are the perfect base to get out and experience bike riding like nowhere else! We are central to cities also, travelling times to some of the great spots around NZ are: Tauranga/Mt Mauanganui - 1 hour 45 minutes Taupo - 2 hours 45 minutes Auckland - 1 hour 30 minutes Hamilton - 1 hour 30 minutes

    This listing Sea change 2 is for a large sunny room with a comfortable queen bed and glimpses of the sea. It is also furthest away from my living end of the house and very private. This one has 2 opening windows, a desk, large wardrobe and drawers as well. In order to list 3 rooms in one house I have had to create 3 listings. Please see my listing Sea change 1 for full details on a room with queen bed and Sea change 3 listing 2 king singles.
    A large room with a huge wardrobe and large desk. You may or may not be sharing the main bathroom with others depending on if the other 2 rooms are rented at the time.
    Thames is the gate way to the Coromandel and a great place to start exploring. This historical town highlights its gold mining history and has a lot of choices in ethnic resturants and great cafe's. The railtrail begins just 5 minutes down the road and there are some great walking tracks which start just behind this home. A 15 minute drive will take you to the start of a 2 hour return walk to giant kauri trees. In a 15 minute walk you can go from enjoying the huge numbers of sea birds on the coast to being in the bush walking past mine entrances and rivers with swimming holes. Just 3 kms up that road and there are swimming holes well worth a visit.
  • Heather is a great host. Her home was lovely and she made us feel very welcome.

    Clive2020-02-26T00:00:00Z

They met us when we arrived and provided an orientation to the accommodation and the area straightaway. The accommodation provides easy access to downtown Thames, which is a lovely town, as well as for day trips to the attractions on the Coromandel Peninsula. The host provides many thoughtful touches and the property is absolutely beautiful. I give this one 5 stars - it is one of the nicest ones we’ve stayed in and I do not hesitate to recommend.

    Jamie2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was beautiful. It was clean and tidy, very spacious and comfortable, equipped with everything we needed. The view was marvelous, we enjoyed the sunset from the hot tub. It is only a few minutes drive from the town center. For me it was a little noisy, beacuse the main road goes directly in front of the house. But apart from this we enjoyed every minutes of our stay here.

    Krisztina2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had a brilliant stay at Linda’s place. It was clean and very well equipped. Very comfortable with everything we needed for a few nights exploring the Coromandel. The hot tub was a welcome extra and the bath tub is huge! Would definitely recommend.

    Our light and cosy studio is situated under our house with its own entrance and is equipped with all you might need for a comfortable stay including continental breakfast. We love living where we are in friendly Thames with its unique shops and cafes and hope that you will enjoy it too. Thames is ideally situated for exploring the Coromandel and the northern Waikato.
    Our spacious studio room has a double bed, a kitchen which includes a fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster. Cutlery, crockery, cafetieres, coffee grinder and glassware are provided as are towels and bed linen. The shower room is small but perfectly formed. We also provide continental breakfast (i.e. juice, cereals, toast/jam, tea and coffee) for you to help yourselves to.
    We live a few minutes drive from Thames town centre or a very pleasant 20 minute walk. Thames itself has some lovely individual shops and some great cafes plus a wonderful Saturday market. It is a great base for exploring the Coromandel, the Hauraki Rail Trail, the Kaueranga Valley Pinnacles Walk, Miranda...the choices are endless. We are just 4omins drive from popular Pauanui, 1 hr from Hamilton. 1.5 hrs from Auckland and Tauranga.
  • We were at Thames a few nights for a cycling and road trip. Susan and Mehmet met us when we arrived, and they were very friendly and helpful. Susan was very kind to check on us if we needed more milk and bread. We had a very pleasant and comfortable stay, and would not hesitate to recommend Fantail Studio to anyone visiting Thames.

  • Susan's place is a really nice studio anex which is a great base for a trip to the Coromandel. The breakfast that she provides is lovely, and there is also a microwave and toaster for any snacks you want to make.

    A newly redecorated, clean and comfortable self contained 2 bedroom unit. Situated in a quiet neighborhood, 5 mins walk to a playground, 10 mins walk into town along the coastal walkway. The perfect base for exploring the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula, great walks, fishing, beaches, cycle trail and much more.
    The 2 bedroom unit consists of a master bedroom which has one queen bed. The second bedroom has two single beds. These beds can also be joined together to make a king bed. A dining table and chairs, two 2 seater couches in the lounge, TV with freeview or chromecast and a DVD player. The conservatory also has additional seating. A fully equipped kitchen (elements, oven, fridge, microwave, plates, cutlery etc). There is a separate bathroom with shower, toilet and basin. Linen (sheets and towels) are included as well as hand wash, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hairdryer and hair straighteners. The garage is a chill out/extra sleeping space with a 3 seater couch and a king single bed with trundle bed underneath. There is a private courtyard with seating and loungers and a large double BBQ which guests can use. We also now have WIFI!! Once booked you will be able to access the wifi access codes.
    The unit is located across the road from Kuranui Bay. There is a sea wall so we don't get a sea view, however, there is a lovely walkway around the sea front. There are so many great walks nearby. Only 20 mins to the Kauranga Valley Visitor Centre which is the base for the famous Pinnacles walk. Coromandel, Whitianga, Hot Water Beach and Cathedral Cove are not far away. The Seabird coast and Shorebird Centre is only a 30 minute drive, renowned for its Godwit migration. The surrounding area has amazing country cafes, regional park bush walks, the Hauraki Rail Trail and much more.
  • This is a wonderful home away from home. Literally everything you could wish for and more. So cosy, a great location and even a fantastic neighbor too!! This would have to be the absolute best Air B&B in Thames!

    Vanessa2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great locations. Walking distance to town. Only about a hours drive to other towns around the peninsula and optional day excursions.

    Stephanie2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • A delightfully light and spacious property at the north end of Thames. Very comfortable, attractive and well equipped. We found the location quiet, the beds comfortable and the air conditioning in the living room effective; much appreciated with temperatures in the upper 20s. Would definitely stay again. Thank you.

    Keith2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great quiet location. Close enough to everything but far enough away to avoid the crowds. Everything you need to be comfortable and eat in as required

    Wayne2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful spot close to all the peninsula has to offer. Right next to a beautiful path along that beach that takes you into town. The sunsets here were amazing.

    Elizabeth2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended, a great spot with everything you need. Not far from town and a quiet, well kept area. The house was incredibly clean and tidy and lovely little extra touches.

    Renee2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay in this well equipped unit, walking distance (30min stroll) to town and very picturesque beach across the road with a walkway popular with locals. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking your own meals. Look out for the blue store across the bay - great fish & chips only 30min walk in opposite direction to town.

    Tricia2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely and charming accommodation with everything you will ever need! No need to pack any extras, as Graeme and Linda have it all....books, games, chrome cast and even hair appliances. A lovely location by the sea. Would definitely stay again!
