Just a five-minute walk from the idyllic Hahei Beach, Idyll Thyme is the perfect costal retreat to enjoy the sun, sea and chilled Coromandel vibe with your friends and family!

Bright and airy, the living spaces here provide a tranquil haven to unwind in after long days at the beach and out exploring. On chilly nights, the fireplace is on hand to keep you snug and warm while you watch a flick on the Smart TV.

You'll love the kitchen equipped with all the mod-cons you need to whip up tasty brunches or a few sammies for the beach picnic. Treat yourself to a barista style coffee in the mornings for that energy kick to start your day.

Step outside and enjoy all-day sun on the two decks, both surrounded by a beautiful garden of flowers and greenery.

On a balmy summer night, fire up the Weber BBQ and dine outside with a glass of your favourite chilled beverage. You're on holiday now! Later, light the outdoor fire and toast some marshmallows!

Unleash your competitive side with a variety of different board games ready for you to whip out when the weather isn't quite right for the beach. Or if just feel like a break from the sand, the kids will love the large, flat lawn complete with a trampoline!

Fancy stretching the legs? A four-minute drive will have you at the carpark at the start of the scenic Cathedral Cove walk, or just set out right from town or the beach and save yourself the money for parking. Beware, it's a pretty steep climb doing it this way though! Either way, you'll be rewarded with incredible scenery and an endless number of Instagram opportunities.

If you're needing to top up on supplies or craving an ice cream on a scorching summer's day, the Hahei General Store is a convenient two-minute walk away. A meal and locally brewed craft beer from The Pour House are also an absolute must!

Take time out at one of New Zealand’s best summer locations and spend your next getaway at Idyll Thyme.

Stayed July 2022

We booked last minute and Bachcare's communication was excellent and much appreciated. Idyll Thyme is exactly what our family needed for a 4 day getaway. We especially loved the fires (one indoor and one outdoor), the fact we could bring our dog along and the close walk to the beach. Bach was warm and had everything we needed. We went to Hot Water Beach (10mins drive) twice, swam and walked/played at Hahei Beach, stargazed at night and went on the Hahei Explorer. Highly recommend this trip, it's absolutely stunning and we even saw a humpback whale. Only small thing to note is that the double bed in the room with the single bed is extremely soft. But with a bit of bed hopping we found a solution as all other beds good. Thank you for a wonderful stay, we hope to be back :-)

Top shelf, this place hits all the spots

Awesome beach pad with plenty of options for outdoor living with decks both sides of the house, ample furniture and lots of lawn space. We loved the location being close to the shops and beach. Trampoline was a bonus for our energetic 4 year old. The house and amenities are very comfortable, but not luxurious - as you'd expect (and want) for a beach bach. The dishwasher is very small, but that's nitpicking. Pro tip - if you're coming during Feb or March don't bring Avocados with you - there's a massive and very productive tree in the back yard!

What a great clean house with everything you need to have a fabulous holiday with kids. The cul-de-sac was quiet, close to the beach, shops and had a basketball hoop! Perfect!

Our group of friends had a fabulous time in Hahei - this property is super close to the beach as well all other amenities (coffee shop, restaurant, general store etc). It had everything that we needed, was lovely and clean on arrival, and we especially loved the private back deck/outdoor living area. The fact that we were able to bring our family dog was also an added bonus! We'd highly recommend staying at Idyll Thyme.

Great bach. Simple but comfortable. Nice quiet cul de sac close to the beach and amenities.
