Rewa House nestles in its bush-clad garden and offers wonderful views over the treetops to Tairua and its volcano. This promising start is fully realised by the fabulous standard of accommodation, amazing breakfast banquet and warm welcoming owners, Trish and Jeff.
Nothing was too much trouble. Freshly-baked muffins accompanied a cornucopia of fruit, home-made muesli, compotes as well as full hot breakfast cooked to order. Try the mushrooms!
Surplus home baking was always presented to us along with cool bag and picnic gear to sustain us on our daily travels. All this and Coromandel too!
Coromandel peninsula is so beautiful. Don't miss Hot Water Beach. Jeff kindly lent us a spade and soon we were digging alongside strangers from all corners of the world, united in our quest for a spot with the famous hot water. It started as a warm puddle and ended up a steaming bubbling spa-sized area that was too hot to stand in! A great way to celebrate the New Year.
The 90-minute walk along the coastal path from Hahei to Cathedral Cove is stunning with its flax and agapanthus and surpassed only by the enormous weathered limestone arch on the beach. Truly stunning.
We can also recommend Coromandel town (some lovely shops), Coromandel Creek Railway, Rapaura Water Gardens and the Coroglen Road.
The jewel in the crown of our time in the peninsula was our stay with Trish and Jeff. They made us so welcome and set the bar so high for the rest of our time in NZ. We stayed at many great B&Bs during our trip, but Rewa House was definitely the best. Thank you so much for your kind generosity. Four nights was not long enough!
