One of just 15 charming houses and cottages in the four-star Flaxmill private holiday park on the Coromandel Peninsula, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home fits effortlessly into a petite 90sqm.
The fully equipped bach-inspired holiday house in a landscaped swathe of green is available all year round to both holiday-makers and those attending boutique weddings, family celebrations, conferences and retreats at Flaxmill’s venue.
The park is just around the corner from Cooks Beach and a quick ferry ride away from Whitianga. As well as three double bedrooms, the house has two bathrooms and a kitchen with oven, gas hobs and dishwasher. There’s open-plan living with a smart TV and gas fireplace for cosy winter getaways. Slide open the doors and walk onto the large wraparound deck with a barbecue and steps leading to a lawn with seating.
The house is ideal for those wanting self-catered accommodation. The bright and breezy coastal-themed furnishings fit the park’s location, right across the road from the beach. Both spacious bathrooms are tiled and have double vanities.
