Flaxhaven Lodge is uniquely situated alongside picturesque Flaxmill Bay, near Cathedral Cove Marine Reserve and Hot Water Beach, yet central to countryside and town. 4 white safe sandy beaches and a great restaurant are within a few minutes walk. At Flaxhaven Lodge there is a glimpse of the sea, but essentially this is a garden setting, spacious quiet and peaceful yet with bars/restaurants a short walk, drive or quaint ferry ride away.

We had the privilege of spending 2 nights at this slice of paradise recently. It is so peaceful and relaxing. The park like grounds are awesome and so restful. To be able to sit outside and enjoy this, is so awesome. Jo, is a wonderful hostess and is so easy to talk too and is always willing to help in anyway. The continental breakfast was filling and kept you full for along time. I would recommend Flaxhaven Lodge to anyone who wanted a relaxing time or see the beautiful sites of this area.

Sometimes it pains me to give 5-star reviews because I don't want the secret to get out. However, the proprietors of Flaxhaven absolutely deserve a strong review - they run a first-class operation in every respect. My wife and I stayed here while visiting the Coromandel last March, and this remains one of the most memorable stays we've had in NZ. I absolutely would return here (happily) and would recommend it highly.

My wife booked us into the Flaxhaven Lodge for a business/pleasure trip we took to the Coromandel Peninsula in April of 2015. The drive from Auckland was spectacular especially along the coast. Flaxhaven Lodge is situated in a beautifully kept alcove a short walk from the beach. The cottage was very quite and well appointed with a comfortable bedroom, large bathroom and cozy sitting area with a sink and refrigerator. The meals prepared by John and Lee were wonderful and they were a great help with tips and local information. We especially enjoyed our visit to Hot Water Beach and crossing the river by ferry to town. We also took the Sea Leopard coastal tour which was wonderful and also visited the hot spring pools in town (nice). This is a spectacular part of New Zealand and we wished we had booked more time at Flax Haven Lodge. Bruce and Kimberly Decker Castle Rock, CO

Really appreciate your comments - we wish you had been able to spend more time here also. There are a lot more attractions than the ones you were able to enjoy. Good luck and best wishes with your building project in Colorado.

We have stayed here several times and are never disappointed. A lovely location, just a few minutes walk from several beaches. The cottage is lovely to stay in with privacy and comfort. The guest wing in the house is also luxurious, comfortable and private. John and Lee serve up a delightful breakfast and good hospitality. They have perfected that balance of making you feel welcome and pampered, but also giving you space to relax and enjoy your holiday. The only difficulty is having to leave!

What a great place to stay. We loved our cottage and felt very much at home. We had privacy with our own entrance and shaded patio. The cottage was spotless and catered for our every need. Having our own sitting room gave us a welcome place to relax after our days out exploring the beautiful Coramandel Peninsular. Our cottage had been serviced by the owners on our return and it looked immaculate. Lee and John made us very welcome on our arrival and offered us refreshments, which was lovely. Their hospitality during the delicious breakfast was outstanding and couldn't be faulted. We looked forward to chatting with them both during this time and found their local knowledge to be invaluable.Thank you so much to both of you.
