Our family of 5 (3 children) stayed at Driving Creek, in a 5 person villa, for the first two nights of a 10 day NZ trip. The accommodation had all the things you would expect and hope for, like a nice shower, comfortable beds, good privacy, easy checkin and out, very clean, lovely location with nice views out over the...

Had a great 2 nights here towards the end of a 3 week road trip around NZ. This was quite possibly our favourite location and wished we had more than 2 nights. Wonderful place for a family of 4-5, tucked quietly away amongst the trees and by the creek. Well equipped and spacious. Superb seafood in the area and can...

We stayed 3 nights here and it was a definite highlight of our NZ trip. Beautiful location, really well appointed, immaculately clean and just a minutes drive out of town - highly recommended if you want a relaxing haven away from the crowds. Also recommend staying this side of the coromandel, about 30 mins drive to the other side but...

Our villa was spacious and well-equipped, providing everything needed for a pleasant, relaxed stay. The patio was private and surrounded by beautiful plants, against a background of the surrounding hills and bush. The shared garden sloped down to Driving Creek whose murmur, together with birdsong, provided a soothing accompaniment to our stay. The hot tub was just what was needed...

Located in a wonderful garden with tuis and bellbirds, with a hot tub on the back porch and no direct neighbors, we very much enjoyed our unique stay at the villa and could have stayed there for much longer than just the two days we were booked in.

We have stayed in some very good hotels, including The Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Waikiki, and The Langham Hotel Hong Hong, and a good number others but we enjoyed our stay at Driving Creek Villas even more than any of those. It is just so tranquil, sweet, and utterly peaceful. It feels like you're in another world, being surrounded by...

We had a wonderful stay here - not long enough. The setting in bush and beside a stream was my idea of heaven. Lots of native trees and birds. The villa was extremely comfortable with excellent indoor and outdoor facilities and good wifi. Fabulous privacy.

An extremely private, beautiful native bush setting, The villa was very well equipped (totally self contained), immaculately presented with great indoor-outdoor flow, a covered deck area and Japanese hot tub. The area itself offered a variety of experiences and close proximity to town made for easy access. Too much to see and do in one weekend, we will certainly return...

All we wanted for our 4 days vacation in Coromandel. The most beautiful villa has all you need and more for self catering stay. Surrounded by amazing nature, birds, river and stunning view. And hot tub is nice in the evening when it gets a bit chilly in early November. We were so lucky with the weather which was stunning...
