My flatmate and I stayed here in Nov 2013 for one night. It's a unique and interesting custom-designed pair of studio apartments. It would be absolutely ideal for a romantic escape for people who really want to be left alone, or for an artist or musician or writer that wanted to be isolated to be productive for a while.
The layout is conducive to romance and relaxation. It has a modern and artistic vibe, with interesting and stimulating decor and of course a dreamy outlook directly onto massed greenery. There's adequate kitchenware to stay for several days unbothered, a shower big enough for about 12 people, and an outdoor bath near the small breakfast-style table. There are plenty of tourist brochures and magazines, and a few CDs (e.g. excellent flamenco music) and a stereo. The fireplace was already prepared for us to light and that was a rare treat. It was raining frequently during our stay and that made it more intoxicating to stay indoors.
Things to note - it is not really a walkable distance to Coromandel township (well, it would be 20+mins), the fridge is fairly small (so you couldn't stay isolated for a whole week, nor hold a party). There is no TV, but there is a DVD player (bring some movies if you wish). The only bedding option is a queen bed and I don't think the couch would be suitable for many people.
If you stay here, you'll meet the owner, Robyn, who is a local artist, and make sure you go to Umu cafe for coffee alone, or any meal - it's awesome!
