"Not sure what we can say that others have not! The owners are great to deal with as we ran into some snafus with our payment due to last minute booking. They accommodated us through the confusion and we worked out the details. On our arrival, Ali even met us in town as we'd taken a wrong turn outside of Thames and came in later than expected. As we weaved our way up the hill looking down over the glistening lights of Tiarua with a crescent moon hanging low over the hills, we were hooked. This is an amazing rental and the location, which is perched on the side of Mount Paku overlooking the ocean, took our breath away. We stayed in mid-September and used this as a base for seeing the Coromandel. After visiting other locations, we are so pleased with this choice! We were able to explore and still have a great place to kick back. The morning sun heats up the house nicely in cooler weather, though it did get a bit cool later in the day. Plenty of wood for the fireplace took the edge off the chill but it probably didn't help that we came down with some kind of illness. We spent a lot of time under warm blankets that are provided, sipping on tea. If you are going in the winter, bring slippers or wool socks as the house has wood floors. (We found wonderful, inexpensive fleece-lined slippers at the Coconut Gallery in town.) Really though, the house is totally equipped with all the essential gadgets (and more) and felt like home. If we would have needed anything, Ali was always available. We even ran into her by chance one afternoon at a great little restaurant called Manaia, which contributed to the small town experience. We really appreciated the laundry facilities as we were traveling for several weeks. The bed in the loft is very comfortable and enjoyed waking to the surf and a Tui that had taken up its quirky song outside our window. We gave the trail to the beach a go and though a bit steep, was no problem. Also Laurel said it was ok to go ahead and use the guitar. I'm a singer-songwriter and it was a nice surprise to find the instrument tucked into the closet. Would really like to return at a time when we could both be feeling better. It is a slice of heaven and what a blessing to have great people open their homes for such a reasonable cost!"
