“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

My husband and I stayed at Driving Creek Villas in September and really enjoyed it. Fabulous setting amongst the bush and so private. Really enjoyed the Japanese hot tub which sets Driving Creek villas apart from other accommodation! The villa was so warm and inviting with the lovely wooden floors and joinery with lots of light making you feel cosy and warm along with the heat pump. There was nothing they didn't provide from muffins on arrival to dvds to watch! Very close to Driving Creek railways and Coromandel Town. Beautiful setting and fabulous views, spotlessly clean - a real home away from home. We are glad we choose Driving Creek villas and would love to come back and stay again.

For a stress free break from the city, leave your car behind, catch the ferry to Coromandel and relax with a stay at Driving Creek Villas. Your host David Foreman will collect you from the ferry, stop off in town for necessary supplies and deliver you to your villa - tasteful, discrete, warm and welcoming just out of the township. Bikes are avilable to get you into town or out and about. Or you can just relax in the bush setting with the Driving Creek stream running past at the foot of the landscaped garden. The Driving Creek Pottery and Railway is just a short walk up the road with the quirky Driving Creek Cafe providing great coffee and food en route. It really is a stress buster......

I stayed at the Driving Creek Villas in the Tokatea Villa during the weekend of my wedding in March. On the night before my wedding I stayed with my 3 bridesmaids and on my wedding night I stayed with my husband. Everything about it was just great. We ended up having some of our wedding photos taken in the gorgeous grounds and they've turned out beautifully. The house was beautifully clean and comfortable and was the perfect place to get ready for my wedding.

I have to note how incredibly comfortable the beds were. The double bed which I slept in on both nights was so comfortable and I had a pretty good nights sleep on both nights despite my obvious excitement and nerves.

Overall the Driving Creek Villas was a fantastic place to stay, perfect for anyone from a family to a bridal party!

The first thing that hits you when you arrive at your villa is the amazing smell of the surrounding plants and flowers, and then the peace, and then the birdsong. Within seconds of arriving we knew we'd made the right choice. The villas are very private but not secluded, the views are stunning and the location so close to Coromandel Town is fabulous. Once inside, the villa is luxuriously appointed and spotlessly clean with large windows and deck for sunbathing. The Japanese hot tub was the icing on the cake. We didn't want to leave, and will definitely be making a massive detour back here the next time we visit new Zealand.

Driving Creek Villas was the first place we stayed in New Zealand and it was wonderful. The Villas are very clean, private, and stylish. Our host was very polite and helpful and I would recommend his outfit to anyone looking for a great place to stay.

We are a family of four with young children and we all really enjoyed our stay at Driving Creek Villas. The villas are set amongst beautiful bush and quiet and private. The villas are clean, comfortable and everything you need is on hand. It is conveniently located to Coromandel Town and there is lots for a young family to do- we thoroughly recommend Waterworks. We would absolutely stay again.

These villas are spacious and very well appointed. David was friendly and informative. We had a pleasant and interesting walk into Coramandel Town along the Heritage Trail and would recommend dinner at the Pepper Tree and pizza at Umu and best ever sandwiches from Driving Creek Cafe.The soak in the outdoor,secluded hot tub after a magical day on the Coramandel Walkway was heaven.
