Please beware of this place. I cannot believe these other reviews. We are used to staying in 5-star boutique accommodation around the world and have often paid this much for a nights' lodging but this place is outrageously expensive for what you get. This was to be the highlight of our stay in New Zealand and going on the pictures we were pretty excited. We were let down and very upset. The actual accommodation is a tiny apartment below the palatial spread you can see in the pictures. While nicely turned out it was nothing special - Italian linen is not worth these prices. While watching television might not be your first choice of activities, if you choose to do so you will be viewing the pictures on something smaller in size to a standard laptop computer! - surely these prices warrant a flat-screen LCD/plasma at least. The stunning views, which must be there, are only fully available to your hosts who perch above you - you can hear them move about in their mansion. I cannot speculate how this place has garnered such positive reviews. We would not have been comfortable paying one third this price for this overrated B&B. We stayed in some wonderful places in and around Coromandel peninsula but this was the worst value accommodation we have ever had the misfortune of paying for. Anywhere.
