Fenced section (not creek), plus the deck area can be closed off making it safe for children. Gorgeous situation & we have many returnees. "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 "

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 wih 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. 15kms to Whitianga, 20 kms to Coromandel.

A great location. Enjoyed the stream and deck around the cottage. Great for outdoor use. The cottage had everything you would need for an enjoyable holiday.
