This Flaxmill Bay holiday unit includes compact and bright open plan living... unwind on the deck or dine al fresco with sea views!
The kitchen has all the basic facilities you need (no oven) and there is a washing machine in the bathroom. There is 1 bedroom with a Queen bed and there is a sofa bed in the lounge when required. When you are not enjoying the outdoor lifestyle this property come with WiFi and Freeview to keep you entertained.

This is a great base to enjoy all the amenities in the area. Locally there is Eggcentric organic cafe, and you are a short walk to the Ferry Landing store and the passenger ferry (5 minutes) across to Whitianga that has supermarkets together with an array of other shopping and dining options. Cooks Beach has takeaway shops, a general store and a wine shop to cover all your needs.

Other attractions in the area include Hahei and Cathedral Cove 10 minutes drive away, and only 15 minutes drive to Hot Water Beach. As well as the many beautiful beaches there are many lovely bush walks with stunning scenery.

So kick back and relax in the special environment of Flaxmill Bay.

You'll get what you paid for. Plenty of kitchen utensils. Perfect location, near Whitainga, Hotwater beach and Cathedral cove. We are keen to book the unit again in the future.

Stayed March 2021

Unit 1 of the Flaxmill Bay units was simple but clean, and provided most of what we needed, and was in a perfect place for visiting the closest beach (a 3 min walk) and taking the ferry to Whitianga (a 6 min walk). It's also a great base for visiting much of the Coromandel, particularly along the Cooks Beach down to Tairua area. The unit was comfortable - only only complaints were the lack of outside light out the back where the washing lines were, and the hotplate not working well. There was a great electric frypan though which solved the problem. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom had been modernised and the water pressure was good. The washing machine was newish and worked well for a small load. The TV was a little difficult to get working as the remote batteries had died, but we managed to use the TV and box OK directly. There was a Chromecast which worked fine with Netflix but didn't like Neon or Prime. We thoroughly enjoyed our time on the Coromandel, thank you!
