Waters Edge Cottage truly lives up to the name - a charming beach cottage in an unbeatable location!

The secluded beachfront bach sits nestled in a native bush setting, and takes you back to Kiwi baches of yesteryear when the only things that mattered were when your next swim was due or when the BBQ would be started up!

Waters Edge Cottage sits on the sands of Mercury Bay with safe swimming and a boat ramp. Feel like you have your very own slice of paradise at Waters Edge Cottage, waking up to waves practically lapping at your doorstep.

Located on a rural bush block between Cooks Beach and Hahei, you're tucked away from it all but just a short drive to Hahei, Hot Water Beach, Cooks Beach and Whitianga via Ferry Landing. Plan a day trip exploring all that the stunning Coromandel has to offer!

This Hahei bach has a sunny conservatory - a perfectly peaceful place to read. The pot belly stove efficiently heats Waters Edge Cottage, so it is nice and cosy for any winter stays! This is the perfect retreat for a small family or group wanting to recharge their batteries the old-fashioned way: sun, sand, swimming and relaxing without the mod-cons that can often detract from holidays today! Fall asleep listening to the waves, and wake up with the tui calling.

An indescribably idyllic beachfront location, discover the untouched paradise that is Waters Edge Cottage today!

Special Conditions

As the property has unfenced access to the beach, adults should closely supervise young children while outside to ensure they are safe around water. There are three ways to get to the beach from the cottage and the pathway to the beach is rocky so guests with limited mobility should be careful walking down to the beach.

The beach changes occasionally with storms and sometimes rocks pile up below the steps. If the area below the steps is too rocky to navigate there is a path from the lawn to the boat ramp, which goes across a small stream.

Bookings must be back to back over high peak.

The maximum guest numbers can be extended to 6 if 2 of the guests are children under the age of 14.

The owner's small boats on the property are not available for renters use.

Please note that, as per the photos, the conservatory bedroom is accessed from bedroom 1 and from the deck. Inside the conservatory room, the bunk beds can be separated from the sofa bed area with a curtain if required.

The second lavatory/shower is accessed via a ramp from outside the cottage.

There is a security camera at the top of the drive, but this does not affect guest privacy.

Please note the boat ramp is suitable for a small boat up to 5 metres.

A wonderful spot, we loved the sandy beach and privacy

Great place on the waters edge

Stayed January 2022

What a find! Tucked away down a long driveway, this is truly waters edge. We had such a lovely, relaxing time. Kids swam safely in the private bay, bach was spacious and well equipped. Overall so happy with our stay there, shame we couldn’t stay longer!

We had a great stay. Classic Kiwi Bach that had everything one could need. Then there's the sea only metres from the deck, going to sleep with the sound of the sea and waking up to a perfect view, 10/10. Having the beach all to yourself is a delight.

This was our second stay at Waters Edge and once again, it was perfect in every way! The thing with this property is that it offers everything required for a relaxing peaceful holiday away from work, people and everyday life. It is not fancy nor big but it has everything our family of four needed and was more than adequate. We would recommend this property to our family and friends and would love to come back again some day (if availability allowed!)

We had an amazing stay at Waters Edge Cottage, perfect location close to Hahei yet completely private. We had the bay to ourselves! Great time spent fishing and the kids loved playing on the beach. House was cozy and everything we needed was there :). We cant wait to come back again! Thank you!

Stayed February 2021

Beautiful Bach with an amazing view and own private little beach area. Felt really secluded. Bach was comfortable and clean. Would book again in a heartbeat.

Great place!!! Exactly what you need if you are wanting to get away from it all and relax. Off the beaten track a bit but surrounded by bush and the ocean is right at your door! Basic cottage with everything you need - would definitely book here again!

Stayed October 2020

our stay was just beautiful. talk about living the kiwi dream! house was a neat little place with everything u needed for this type of stay. it was nice and quiet but not to quiet u feel like your to loud. our kids had a blast on there own beach, which took me back to my childhood days up coro. its not to far if you need something from the shop. its definitely the type of place you come to absolutely chill out and explore your own small bay and bush surroundings. we have 3 boys and 1 has cerebral palsy he got around great her just had to move a few chairs to stop him tripping over in the house but other then that the house was good. I also caught a kahawai on the rocks highlight of my weekend. hope we left the place ok forgot to pop the sofa bed back together sorry guys. but over all we had a blast and can't wait to come back thanks again and nice meeting you.

Love that we got our own beach to enjoy. The property is 10 min from Hahei town so make sure you have all groceries with you to enjoy your stay.

Stayed January 2020

The Bach was private in a gorgeous location that was central to Hahei Beach, Cathedral Cove, Cooks Beach & Whitianga. Amazing!

Stayed September 2019

Its a lovely place right at the water. The fireplace is lovely and the whole area is actually steeped in History which can be somehow felt in the energy of the place. Very uplifting!

Stayed April 2019

Perfect little hideaway if you want seclusion amongst the trees looking out to the water

Stayed February 2019

Waters Edge Cottage is an idyllic location next to a little stone and sand beach. Perfect for a relaxing summer holiday - we had no need to go further than our own beach for swimming at all tides and getting out in our kayak. Comfortable and well equipped bach. Cathedral Cove Kayak Tours were a great outing.

Stayed January 2019
