Indigo Bush Studios
Reviewed 20 November 2013

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!

Room Tip: The "upper" Queen room is slightly larger and marginally easier to get to from the carpark...

stayed there in September 2013 with my wife. There are 2 apartments, lower and upper studio, each having a bath. Stayed in lower studio, it offers more privacy - hidden in the bush.
This is excellent romantic place - a neatly designed studio with a bath outside of the house, surrounded by the bush - this was exactly what I was looking for..

Room Tip: I would recommend lower studio if you are looking for a better privacy

Lovely secluded private place. Chic deco it has a french cottage 'feel' to it. But the best thing has to be the outdoor bath surrounded by plants, it feels so fresh and peaceful. My only room for improvement would be to have newer softer towels and robes.

Spending two nights in Indigo helped me gather my energy and set me on the path to discover the Coromandel and all it has to offer. A gentle space, beautifully appointed. Unique. Earth flooring in the living areas, copper fixtures and a pebble floor in the shower area and lovely linen (my number one requirement) on a comfortable bed. A functional kitchen space . If you like comfort with artistry then Indigo is a place I would highly recommend.

Indigo has such a unique flavour - from the earth floor to the works of sculpture and hessian-style bed cover, you can really sense that the owner Robyn has put a lot of thought and love into the place. My partner and I had a fabulous night here, we really enjoyed the outdoor bath and massive shower! It's elegantly simple and located nice and close to Coromandel Town. I would definitely recommend it to couples looking to unwind!

Room Tip: Lower studio has more privacy.

We've very much enjoyed our two stays at Robyn's, charming Indigo Bush Studios. Both have been in the lower studio. Our first in summer some time ago, when we sat outside and toasted the sunset and our recent winter visit, snug inside warmed by the log fire. Nestled in native garden, the location is beautifully private. The facilities and equipment are simple but of excellent quality. We bring books to read, ready prepared dishes we can heat up in a pot and are looking forward to next time.

Great studio! Located in the middle of trees. Very esthetic style, well-equipped, comfortable and spacious studio with private bath on the terrace. We would like to come back and definitely recommend to stay there.
