With an open plan living, dining and kitchen area, the home has plenty of space and is ideal for spending time together with friends and family.

Great house but make sure you know whether anything is going to be on at the Waihi Hotel as the music is so loud no one could sleep amd we ended up leaving a day early as a result.

Stayed July 2021

Great location just down from the shops in Waihi beach, but only a couple of streets from the beach. Warm and cosy. Off street parking, and a small deck / play area for kids. Helpful advice from Bachcare rep on things to do locally was appreciated.

A pleasant holiday cottage, on the main road so a bit noisy but good to relax in. Has a lovely shower, good space and nice plates and glasses to use.

Shell cottage was our dream holiday house in Waihi Beach! Fully self contained with everything you need to make your stay comfortable and relaxing! Large spacious rooms, and a lovely outdoor deck to enjoy meals outside. The beds were lovely and comfortable, and bedding was clean and good quality. There is even a fresh lime tree in the back yard! Perfect location to walk to the shops, or beach - and just a short drive into the town of Waihi. Highly recommend she'll cottage and can't wait to book there again! Jo and family x
