The evening strolls on the beach we will also always remember, as well as your cute & cozy little cottage! We slept so peacefully, especially after a bush-bath. Sad to leave, but totally re-charged -thank you for your kindness & warm hospitality". Cheryl & Will Appleby, March 2018. "Thank you so much for providing us with such a lovely, nourishing stay. We had a lovely time exploring, kayaking & surfing . . . you have got a beautiful spot & there is no doubt we will be back very soon. Many, many thanks". Ella, Tom, Graham, Liz & Mary - Nov 2018.

"Wai-ka-WOW, what a fantastic place you have here & what a special community you live in. We felt part of that community even though we were here for few days. Such warm hosts with practical advice & neighbours who wave when you pass them. A feeling of what NZ was like 30 years ago. The nature is better than you would see anywhere in the world . . . " Scott, Carolina & Leon - Dec 2018. ____________________________________________________

A delightfully quirky original bach providing a sanctuary of peace and tranquillity. We enjoyed a most relaxing two days in perfect weather. A long walk or short drive to the most magnificent underpopulated beach on the Coromandel.
!!!ATTENTION!!!! ~○PLEASE READ B4 YOU ENQUIRE°~ Contacting owner is VIA Phone Call ONLY. Do not book via email as you will not get a reply . Enter enquire above and you will receive an email from Holiday Houses which will give you the number needed to contact Anawin cottage. As a friend of Alexander I am posting on behalf as they do not have internet in the Bay. It is also part of the experience that you contact and BOOK via Phone. Anawin cottage is very isolated from town and a very old way of living. She prefers it that way and you shall know what I'm talking about when you stay with these lovely people. I had stayed at Anawin cottage for 2 nights. The owners are very welcoming and lovely people. It is a true getaway from the usual day to day lifestyle. From the outdoor shower to the peaceful lifestyle, it took me back in time. I thank you very much for the experience and highly recommend to anyone who wishes to experience quality time away from technology and the bog smoke. Kind regards :)

What a fantastic location - a real gem - an old-fashioned kiwi batch like you don't see anymore. The owner was so helpful & accomodating & even gave our kids some carrots to feed the horses :-)
