We have stayed in many places and this is definitely a good one. We had the light, airy and spacious Studio, it is equipped with everything you might need and was very comfortable and clean. The owners were very welcoming, lending us beach towels and spades (you need them at Hot Water beach). The nice thing was that there was...

This cute little cottage was surrounded by amazing flowers and fern trees! Great fresh air as we could open the doors all evening. Fantastic restaurant with huge green mussels, the softest calamari I've ever had, and oysters!! Just terrific! Ecologically minded and completely surrounded by crocosmia, allium, fennel, and ginger! They consider them weeds! For a gardener, it's heaven!

I have stayed in the Treehouse for two trips now and have loved it both times. Genevieve and her father are wonderful to chat with, knowledgable about the area, and both were so kind. The house itself is charming and had everything we needed. Genevieve was also very generous during our first stay by letting us use her office the...

We stayed for two nights earlier this year in the Garden Studio - during the winter, but it was very mild and so we had doors & windows open most of the time and were able to sit outside with an evening drink. It's right behind the main house but is very private and faces out onto the peaceful garden....

Eco-friendly lodges (choice of three units) hidden in the bush far enough from the road to be quiet yet close enough to be able to walk into town. Lovely helpful owners, Gen & James have lived in on the property for years and know all the best places. Have stayed there three times now, and are shortly to book again;...

This is the Coromandel and so one expects to encounter native bush, eco-friendly houses and equally friendly craftspeople such as potters or artists. Fern Lodge meets all these expectations, on the northern edge of Coromandel town, down a bush-fringed driveway. The studio we occupied was well-equipped and had some eco-friendly touches -- among them: no nasty chemical cleaning smells, soap...

Wow where does one start. Peaceful relaxing quant. The owners are beautiful friendly charming hosts tucked in bush surroundings and you think you are the only ones here. I would have trouble staying anywhere different. Ray is a interesting character and we'll know in the town and boy dies he love his town. Ask him anything and he will know...

Lovely location and fabulous accommodation. Really well appointed with every thing that you would need. Warm and cosy and we were visiting at a very rainy time. Very Comfy beds. Great Place to stay and relax. Great deck to enjoy the view. Thank you.

We stayed in the Treehouse at Fern Lodge. It was a homely hideaway with all the basic necessities and situated about a 20 minute walk from the main street. The house itself had nooks to cosy up with a book and a deck outside to watch the sunset. We only stayed here for 3 nights but I wished it was...

Stayed there for three nights in mid Feb. Greeted by Ray, great host, engaging, full of information. We were in the Tree House. Spacious, good beds, great shower. It's aptly named "Tree House" . Surrounded by trees and vegetation with all the birds and even a Possum during the night. It's certainly quite different from the normal corporate type accommodation....
