This was one of the highlights of our road trip. My daughters (3 & 8) loved the garden with it's swing, sandpit and trampoline, and really enjoyed feeding the incredibly friendly pigs their scraps. Roger and Daina were really friendly, and gave great recommendations for places to eat, and beautiful walks. We would definitely recommend this to families, or anyone looking to relax.

Our family stayed for 2 nights in December. Diana made us truly welcome and helped point us to some local highlights. The Fig Tree Cottage was very comfortable and a nice supply of teas was highly appreciated. The location is wonderfully peaceful and conveniently located to the beaches and other sights in the Coromandal area. Highly recommeded and was our family's favourite accommodation during our 10 day stay in New Zealand.

I stayed for two nights at one of the two outstanding cottages of Mercury Orchard which was surrounded by fruit trees. The cottages offer above average comfort and they are very tastefully furnished. Guests are welcomed with a basket of fresh fruits and a heartily welcome by the excellent hosts, Diana and Roger. The location of Mercury Orchard is exellent, very close from the main attractions of the Coromandel Peninsula but still remote enough to enjoy the great location on a former dairy farm. Instead of cattle, nowadays you can enjoy the presence of two pigs, some chicken and the friendly dog Rusty.

We stayed in Fig Tree cottage for three nights in January and were very well looked after by Heather and Barry. The cottage is in a lovely setting and we enjoyed breakfast outside on the deck looking onto the orchard. With fresh fruit from the orchard and breakfast cooked to order, what more could you want? Thanks Barry for help with the toll charge for north of Auckland, that saved us a lot of hassle. Good advice about local attractions and restaurants too. Thanks for the plums!

Could not have found a better place to stay! Among all of the beautiful and exceptional places we visited, this was the best. The surroundings were idyllic. The cottage is nestled among an orchard- plums, pears, and apples. Barry and Heather not only gave us fresh fruit every day to take with us, but provided a ladder so that we could pick our own whenever the desire struck. The 2 could not have been more generous and engaging hosts. The surrounding gardens are simply elegant. The cottage is quiet with tasteful decor and plenty spacious. Of the 20 or so DVDs they provided, probably 5 are among our all time favorites and the others are all classics. Barry and Heather provided us with a list of must see attractions in the area and we were able to visit most in our 3 days in the area. They were without exception, extraordinary. Coromandel is probably our favorite spot in New Zealand. So peaceful and bucolic with gorgeous beaches and great walking trails. I can't imagine a more perfect way to visit the peninsula than through Mercury Orchard. I almost forgot to mention the breakfast which was yummy. Not only the usual amenities, but Barry took special orders for whatever our heart desired. I hope that guests have the opportunity to see the night sky as we did-never have we experienced it so clearly and so free from extraneous light. Lastly, the fresh flowers and chocolates presented at our arrival were icing on the cake.
