A comment from a visitor; "Wow; I've stayed in many holiday homes and these are in a class of their own. As well as the location and design, the warmth and creativity of these homes are unforgettable.
Thanks for having them so spotlessly clean and organised. It makes them a pleasure to stay in, and a pleasure to leave them that way for the next guests to enjoy.
We'll be back!"


Big outdoor area on the deck, but also big grassed area right to a creek.
The deck area is fenced.


We do not live there but have a wonderful manager, Dianne who lives nearby. You can email or ring us at anytime.


During the busiest period from 27th December to January 27th it is a one week minimum & we give priority to those booking both houses



Please note that even though our holiday homes have all cooking facilities, BBQ etc, they are not serviced daily. They provide an independent holiday experience, which enables us to keep our prices lower. Please bring your own supplies including tea, coffee, sugar etc.

CHILDREN are very welcome here. Enjoy the lego, board games bikes & kayaks.

TOILETRIES Please bring your own; eg soap,shampoo,toilet paper etc (we supply a few toilet rolls)

Well trained DOGS are welcomed by prior arrangement. Please pooper scoop..

GRAYS BEACH, right across the road is ideal for swimming, boating, boogie boarding, windsurfing & body surfing.. Sometimes the waves are big enough for surfing. At the western end of the beach mussels can be obtained off the beach at low tide ..After a big storm, scallops are often washed up onto the beach

FISHING is excellent in this area; especially for snapper. A boat ramp is situated 500 metres away on the road to Kuaotunu. Please clean your fish outside in the sink next to the outside toilet.

KAYAKS are for your use & are situated in the locked area under “Wild Thyme”.

Enjoy this beautiful area & have a wonderful time.You will need to bring your own food & supplies as there are no shops at Kuaotunu.

There is a café at the camp next door & also at Kuaotunu settlement on the Blackjack road.

Whitianga is approx 15 minutes away & Coromandel 20 mins away.

With thanks, Liz & Mike.



Beautiful location and a very easy and comfortable stay. Everything you need for an easy weekend away.

Wonderful location, cozy home. We visited from California with our 18 month old daughter and it was well worth the trip! Thank you for a lovely, and easy, stay.

Thanks Michelle, So pleased you enjoyed it. All the best, Liz & Mike

It's a great location, short walk from the beach and very comfortable home. Everything you need for a beach side holiday is available: bbq grill, outdoor shower to rinse off, kayaks, etc. The closest town is 15kms away (Whitianga), so plan accordingly to get food and any groceries if planning to cook. The location doesn't have any cell phone coverage, and the wifi is a little sketchy. Perfect if you want to be disconnected and just enjoy the place. Overall a very good experience.

Easy check in. Everything you need for a comfortable stay. Lovely view of the little river as well as the ocean. Big, well-equipped kitchen.

We loved the place including having outside breakfast and dinner, kayaking in the morning and a beer at sundown on the patio. Walking to the beach and spending quite time! We will spread the word about the Wild Thyme. Thanks again.Ciao The Wellners.

Sorry for the delay in this review! This was truly a perfect vacation! Everything was far beyond our expectations. So close to the beach!

Very comfortable stay. Quiet and beautiful setting
