Riverview Retreat is a 2 bedroom Cooks Beach holiday home featuring open plan spaces and a bright atmosphere. Enjoy peaceful bush surrounds and a short stroll to the sandy beach as you relax into your next Coromandel escape!

This home has spacious and comfortable open plan living, with superb indoor/outdoor flow. The floor to ceiling windows bring the fresh air and scenery indoors and allow for easy summer living. Step out onto the covered sundeck with a BBQ on hand for an easy meal outdoors. There is ample room at the rear of the property for the kids to play or chill out on the bean bags outdoors taking in the tranquil setting.

When you are not relaxing onsite, take advantage of the two-minute stroll to the beach and spend your days soaking up the sun, sand and surf. Or head into town and explore the local shops and cafes - 10-minute walk. For a taste of the local wine, Mercury Bay Estate is a 4-minute drive from the home. Go on an adventure to one of Coromandel’s surrounding beaches - the famous Cathedral Cove is less than 20 minutes drive.

For a refreshing Cooks Beach escape…. Riverview Retreat has you covered!

Stayed December 2021

Unloved. It was very disappointing to see broken outdoor furniture supplied. 3 seats were provided for 4 guests. 2 seats were broken and the table was warped, with nails exposed. We felt this was dangerous and contacted bachcare, but our emails and phone calls were not acknowledged. Bedrooms were very damp, with mouldy curtains. The smallest bedroom was so damp our son slept in the lounge as it effected his breathing. Dishwasher was useless, crockery and glasses were dirty after being through the dishwasher. The dryer was useless too, and turned itself on and off at random. We found 3 smoke alarms at the property, 2 on top of the fridge without batteries and one in the bedroom which fell down on day 2. Not sure how this complies with health and safety regulations? The location of this property is excellent but having been there many times 20 years ago, when our family friends owned it, it was sad to see it so unloved.

Great place to stay with a family. Gorgeous spot and very close to the lovely beach. Had everything we needed although we chose to take our own linen to keep costs down. Would stay again and highly recommend.

Property was lovely and cosy, great heatpump for when the weather turned, we kayaked straight off the back of the property and its an easy walk to the beach. Very comfortable property and the manager was a dream to deal with, would definitely recommend! Was a perfect getaway :)

River view is a fantastic location next to the Shakespeare park, the beach, and the tidal river. We found the Bach bright and cool. Having 2 decks to choose from allowed for the sun and shade seekers to both be happy. The lawn at the back had great parking. We loved the bachy wooden warm casual feel of the house.

We stayed here for a few days and thoroughly enjoyed our time. It was a great location for a quick walk down to the beach and a short drive to Hot Water Beach and Cathedral Cove. The cottage was clean, the kitchen was well-stocked for preparing meals, the yard was private, and the place was cozy and modern. A closed grill would have been preferable, but the open range grill worked. The only negative was that we were required to bring our rubbage to Whitianga (a 30-minute drive) since we were not checking out on the day rubbage is picked up at the curb. The property manager was quick to respond to questions. I would recommend this cottage!
