"Hi there Liz & Mike, I recently had the pleasure of spending a few nights in your Thyme cottages with my parents (and their little dog), and it's fair to say that we have all fallen for your little slice of paradise. Seeing as we so thoroughly enjoyed our thyme (sorry, couldn't resist) there, I thought that I would book my parents back in for a few nights in as their Christmas present. Please let me know if this is at all possible, and thanks again for our recent stay. It was bliss! Cheers Greta "

Special Amenities

These outside facilities are shared by both cottages. Right next to, but separate from, Kuatounu motorcamp on Bluff Rd. (milk, bread etc available there). Next to creek & surf beach & access is just across the road. No houses in front of us. There is a great spot for children to swim & play near where the creek reaches the sea. Built with the environment in mind with a solar tracker for efficient power supply (power is solar, but also with automatic grid back up if neccessary), bamboo floors & interior painted with eco paints. As well as each cottage having their own shower and toilet, there is an extra outside toilet and a warm outside shower. 15kms to Whitianga, 20 kms to Coromandel. Stunningly beautiful area with equally stunning views from the houses. Great fishing & 500 metres to a boat ramp. We already have 2 very popular holiday homes at Lake Tarawera near Rotorua & are using the same principles of good hospitality & high quality, clean homes with lots of extras to escape to.

This is small bach, perfect for two! It has a great position looking out on the stream and to the sea. We had a heron keeping us company in the garden, and a kingfisher on the powerlines. It has a well appointed kitchen, and lot's of very hot water in the showers. We will be returning!
We had a wonderful winter escape to Thyme Out Cottages. We had both cottages for two families and it was the perfect set up. With the adjoining deck the kids were able to run freely and safely between the two cottages. All the comforts of home are provided with full kitchen and washing facilities. Directly across the road from the beach, this is a magical place. Very calm beach perfect for kids. We will be back.
We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend away at Thyme Out. Cottage is small but had everything we needed. Great for a couple get away and a treat to wake up and see the water. Enjoyed kayaking in the neighbouring stream. We had extended family over for Saturday night dinner and the deck easily accommodated us all. Will definitely be back! Thank you Liz.
