Miejsce
“Wow, look at that fence”

The sounds of waves lapping on the shore and birds chattering in the native trees, this is our little piece of paradise we’d love to share with you.
Our garden backs on to a Reserve, filled with Fan tails, Tui’s, green Wax Eyes, blue King Fishers, Pukekos and many more native birds and wildlife. Your driveway is a couple steps up from a private patio garden and ground floor apt. King sized bed, with feather duvet, electric blanket and big pillows: 2 seater sofa, hand built macrocarpa coffee and bedside tables, tv with freeview, Vintage power line poles make up the kitchen bench with a 2 burner hot plate, pots and pans, utensils, toaster, jug and microwave. A 1950’s classic Kelvinator fridge, all in perfect working order to make up the lovely homey feeling of the room.
A separate bathroom, with handcrafted mosaic floor, is fully stocked for you.
We had made up a booklet, with lots of popular, and less known adventures for you to explore and WIFI to plan those adventures, chat with family and friends or catch up on emails, note we are not a city and do not have Fibre cable.
Outside on your garden patio you will find a BBQ, picnic table to have meals while watching nature pass by, more lounging chairs and lots of garden beds, filled with all kinds of treats. Terry loves his gardening and it shows, there are actually garden beds all over the property: veggies, flowers, herbs and fruit. Help yourself, we are happy to share what we grow with you. We do not use or purchase genetically modified plants or seeds.
Up the back steps is a big deck off the main part of the house. Another huge Macrocarpa table, benches and more chairs, beach gear and beach towels, bbq and lots of plants which you are welcome to use enjoy.
You will probably see our two dogs: The world famous Buster, he is a mini Jack Russell and Charlie, the gentle giant Great Dane, along with our parrots; Chiquito, George and Tortilla sitting on the clothes line or in the plants. The front yard has a rock garden, see if you can find what is buried under the rocks! There are fruit trees, grape and passion fruit vines, flowers and lots of exotics.
We have 2 kayaks with life jackets (small fee applies to cover their upkeep), beach accessories galore, extra hats, jandals, beach mats, snorkels, masks, fins, skim and boogie boards, bikes, and more.
We have big spades for Hot Water Beach, you will be the most envied ones on the beach!
You will be treated like family here so if there is something you need chances are we have it or can find it, we want you to have the best time ever on your getaway.

Dostęp dla gości
Our guests are treated like family. Please enjoy the decks, gardens, help yourself to the fruit, veggies and herbs we are growing. You are free to use the BBQ on the deck and lower courtyard area.
Parking is available in the second driveway at the end of the 7 colour fence which is easily accessible to your private entrance.

Inne ważne rzeczy
This space is located on the ground floor of our house, every step has been taken to minimize any noise from above, but some is inevitable.
Our home is up on poles which are incorporated into the apartment, the structural beams are not suited to very tall people, you could bump your head.
We take our dogs walking early in the morning and they get very excited, running around above you, but they are out the door very fast as they can't wait to get to the beach.
Our son catches the school bus in the mornings when it is not the holidays, but he's not too noisy.
We are also next door to the Community Hall, there are wedding receptions held there usually March/April, we are not informed of them but they are usually shut down by 11:30, you can hear the band or DJ during their party.

Cooks Beach, Waikato, Nowa Zelandia

A short stroll up the street is Cooks Beach, where the sea is always calm, bright blue and ideal for swimming and skim boarding. The sun rises over the headland where the Purangi Estuary empties and fills into the sea. It is a magical place to start your day, peaceful and quiet. Cooks Beach has some of NZ's oldest history - Capt James Cook sailed on the HMS Endeavour into Mercury Bay in 1769, anchoring just off The Purangi, the same area Kupe, the mythical Polynesian explorer had chosen when he first landed in New Zealand calling it Aotearoa. Kayak up the Purangi Estuary or at the other end of the beach is a little cave to paddle into then just around the corner is Lonely Bay, a locals favourite.
Lonely Bay is the place to collect shell fairy rings, string them up to hang outside your home to remember The Coromandel. Between November and January, Lonely Bay is lined with blooming red Pohutukawa trees, NZ native Christmas tree, it's a sight to behold! Above Lonely Bay is Shakespheres Cliff and lookout, a great place to view Mercury Bay.
Flaxmill Bay is the next beach, warmest water in the area for swimming. Across the street from Flaxmill is Eggsentric, have a cup of coffee and cake and grab some organic groceries, or a fun night out for dinner - sadly they are closed in the winter.
The next beach is Front Beach, beautiful homes are along the shoreline and when the tide is out, Mussel Rock is where we go and pick our kai fresh from the sea.
Lastly is Ferry Landing, the oldest stone wharf in Australasia, built in 1837. Ferry Landing is where you take a passenger only ride over to Whitianga, you will find banks, restaurants, shops, cinema…The ferry runs continuous in the Summer until late at night and is $7 return. We can easily look up the times if it is not summer, when they restrict their hours.
A 10 minute drive the other way takes you to Cathedral Cove in Hahei or Hot Water Beach, both must do's. There is a park and ride for Cathedral Cove that runs in the summer only, it is located just as you are driving into Hahei. Park there and take the bus up to the beginning of the track (available summer months only). From the car park the walk into the cove is around 45 minutes- lots of stairs at the end, so the walk out is about an hour- depending on how fit you are! The other option is to take the track that goes from the beach. Take the road going into Hahei to the end, as you are facing the sea, the beach track is to your left, just before the big Pohutukawa tree, you will see the stairs. This way will put on an extra 1/2 hour or so. Make sure you have sunscreen on, a hat and lots of water if it's super hot. There is nothing to purchase down there, you need to take it with you. Off the Cove track are two other bays, perfect for snorkeling- String Ray Bay and Gemstone Bay- check them out for sure.
There is a water taxi that operates from the beach, if they are running there will be a huge flag on the beach that you can see when you drive down there. There is also the kayak tours, they land at the cove for you to have a look around. Hahei Explorer operates from the Pa end of the beach. Cathedral Cove Dive shop runs diving classes. There are also lots of other boat tours that operate from Ferry Landing- Whitianga side mostly.
On the opposite end of Hahei beach is Te Pare Historic Reserve, made up of two Ngati Hei pa sites. A 15 minute walk up to the site, through an ancient pohutukawa grove, leads to the headland with views stretching for miles up and down the coast.
Hot Water Beach is just past Hahei. Dig your own spa pool during low tide. The hot springs are only accessible at low tide and only one area on the beach where the hot water is, that is by the rocks. From the road into Hot Water Beach, turn into the first car park you see-just as you are going up the hill. That is the surfers car park, park in there, it is not paid parking like the car park at the end of the road. Walk to the beach and the hot water area is to your right.
Please note the water can be extremely hot, so you need to be careful where you stand.
Best time to go is on a rainy day or sunrise and sunset, if possible there are a lot less people.
SURFING: Hot Water Beach a classic surf spot with a right hand point break and various beach breaks that pick up the best of the Pacific Swell.
SAFETY: Hot Water Beach has very strong currents, dangerous rips and holes which can make it unsafe. Please swim between the flags and make sure children, friends and family are supervised at all times.

Leaving the area back to Auckland, just before you get to Tairua, or if you are coming this way and have gone through Tairua, are two stunning Kauri trees standing side by side. These two Kauri trees, or the Twin Kauri's, are easily accessible and well worth the photo opportunity, you can see them from the road. There is a small walk from the trees that takes you to a smaller grove of kauri's and other natives.

Closer to Coromandel Town, but very well worth is New Chum Beach voted as one of the world's top 10 beaches. This protected beach has no buildings, no roads, no infrastructure or camping. Its a bit of a walk, 30-40 mins. From the north end of Whangapoua beach, cross the stream and walk along the rocky shoreline and over the headland through a spectacular nikau forest and huge Pohutukawas. Note check the tides, if it is high tide you will not be able to get there.

Terry and I have a great life here at the Cooks Beach, nice and relaxed the way we love it. We have just recently sold our ice cream/pizza place in Hahei, so we are having lots of fun painting, and changing things around! I have bought tools and am trying out making things. Our teenager, Nick, is very helpful and knowledgeable, but spotting him can be difficult, he is either at the beach in the summer, with friends gaming up in his room. We love our dogs and take them to the beach as much as possible. They both wake Terry up at 6am for their morning walk, you will hear them running down the stairs. Nick has a funny little cockatiel "Tortilla" you will hear him saying, "Tortilla's a pretty boooooy” and telling the dogs, "here kitty, kitty, kitty." I have a two year old Indian Ringneck parrot that I hand fed when very little and had not many feathers, her name was"Chiquita", but we have since discovered she is a he. Ringnecks can take up to 3 years before you can tell, so now it's "CHIQUITO". His girlfriend, a rescued ringneck that belongs to a friend of ours but hangs with us, called Yellow. And we are about to get a blue ringneck that is 10 years old, for sure a male, called George. They are not often caged so we ask that everyone be mindful when opening the front door. Chiquito has a very large vocabulary and is not shy, he is teaching Yellow to talk and hopefully will do the same with George. We are a very friendly and laid back family that doesn't allow much stress in our lives. We enjoy people’s company, meeting new people, sharing life stories, BBQS with family and friends and of course the beach. Terry loves his gardening and we have a great one! We are more than happy to share what we grow with our guests.
