“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 15 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We stayed at Studio 531 and had the best holiday, lovely setting, great facilities, loved having a shower and looking down the harbour, would recommend Studio 531 to anyone who is travelling to Coromandel and looking for a restful and lovely place to stay

“Our favorite stay in New Zealand!”
Reviewed 30 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

My husband and I loved our stay here! The location, the hospitality, the cleanness, the value, the large space, the charming dog who lives in the main house…we loved it all. I could go on and on! The host even kindly lent us some oil olive and greeted us with a bottle of delicious, New Zealand wine. If we make it back to New Zealand, we would love to stay here again.

We stumbled across Studio531 when we were driving around Coromandel looking for accommodation for 1 night, then loved the cottage so much we ended up staying for 3 nights and didn't want to leave...Stuart and Catherine are absolutely wonderful hosts and the cottage is equipped with everything you could possibly think of, including the most amazing views! The accommodation is clean, spacious and obviously lovingly looked after, so has a real homely feel and lhe location is lovely and quiet, but still very close to town, so the best of both worlds. We couldn't find any faults even if we tried our hardest...thank you so much again Catherine and Stuart for a fantastic 3 nights in Coromandel :-)

“Stunning location with a relaxed atmosphere and warm, friendly hosts.”
Reviewed 28 April 2013 for a stay in February 2013

The cottage is located just outside Coromandel township with easy access. Catherine and Stuart greeted us upon arrival and are wonderful hosts who are friendly without imposing on your privacy. The fresh flowers and artwork make the cottage feel like a home rather than temporary accommodation. The bed is very comfortable and the rooms feel spacious. Most little amenities have been provided (for example: tissues beside the bed and a range of books and magazines, and cooking oil in the kitchen). A dryer to support the washing machine would have been helpful especially for shorter stays. Would love to return.

“"See you next time"”
Reviewed 17 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We booked three nights at the cottage of Stuart and Catherine and spent three wonderful days in the area. The place is well equipped, very clean and charming with a wonderful view over the bay. It is close to Coromandel town with shops and restaurants (about 5 minutes by car). The hosts are very welcoming and helpful. We did not miss anything and would go there again, if our trip would lead us to the Coromandel region.

“Beautiful little cottage with a great view and really really nice hosts!”
Reviewed 9 February 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Dear Catherine & Stuart,

thank you so much for your hospitality, your patience, all the efforts and last but not least your beautiful little cottage with this gorgeous view over the sea and mountains. We had a wonderful and relaxing time and in spite of the storm outside a nice and warm (german) christmas celebration at your place!

Thanks again,

Antje, Sören & Ole

“Romantic cottage”
Reviewed 7 February 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We stayed for two weeks...two glorious weeks of quiet, delicious fresh air, and freedom to roam.
The potter and his wife and Marni who live on the property, are just lovely. They made us feel so welcome and never encroached upon our privacy but were there with suggestions should we need help in deciding where to go and what to do. Each evening when we returned it felt like we were coming home.
The cottage is scrupulously clean, and designer decorated. Lots of space, and a really comfortable bed.....Pieces of Stuart's pottery around, and of course his enchanting studio to further peruse his outstanding work.......
We will miss Catherine's contagious smile and our little cottage by the sea.
