Kalie - June 2023 We really enjoyed our stay at Mercury Orchard. Beautiful surroundings, comfortable bed, big outdoor bath and heaps of privacy. Loved the fresh fruit and all the fun farm animals to see! Close to so many great areas to see in the Coromandel - we’d highly recommend this beautiful stay to others.
Pablo - May 2023 Our stay at Mercury Orchard was everything we had hoped for and our hosts went above and beyond to make us feel at home. The orchard house is a wonderful private setting and they take great pride in caring for the grounds. Roger was great for sharing local knowledge and tips and we really enjoyed meeting the animals. Many thanks for a great place to stay.
Rohan - May 2023 Lovely spot and we loved seeing all the little animals. The orchard was cool to learn about and the fruit was delish! We had such a great stay!
Chong - April 2023 The owner of the house is a very kind family, they advocate a natural way of life, and the abnormal harmony with the animals and plants around us, which makes our family admire and envy, especially their ten-year-old son, the small owner of the family, who took our family around and introduced the whole farm and orchard, and got free Feijoa fruit when we left! Really appreciate them! Of course, I would also recommend this great place to friends around! (Translated from Chinese)
Olivier - February 2023 very nice place...in the middle of an orchard...we felt very good right away. The accommodation is spacious and very clean. most activities are a few minutes away by car away. i would highly recommend this place... (Translated from French)
Tom - February 2023 We had a great stay with Diana and Roger at their orchard. Our 9month old loved meeting the chickens and horses!
Anja - January 2023 The stay at Diana's place was very nice. It was like a holiday on the farm. The family is very nice and helpful. Would love to come back. (Translated from German)
Emma - December 2022 This was a beautiful place to stay with a really welcoming feel from the surrounding residents! There was a lot around to entertain the kids, including animals, a trampoline and a pool. Unfortunately, because there was so much for us to do in the area, we didn't have time to use these things. We were able to arrive whenever we were ready. Diana's instructions for finding the place were very clear so we didn't get lost at all. The place was very clean which made us feel very comfortable and confident in staying here. The locals were really helpful, giving us advice on which attractions would be best to visit and what we'd need for our day. We were provided with everything we needed and more - they gave us fresh fruit from the orchard which was delicious and a lovely touch!
Martyn - November 2022 My first stop on my N.Z. tour and it sets a high standard. I will echo, rather than repeat, the positives from other visitors, but would emphasise the location and the welcome and tips provided by Diana and Roger. Cheers peeps.
Cat - October 2022 Wow, what a beautiful slice of paradise this was for our young family. My 2.5yo loved exploring the beautiful orchard and meeting all the animals, hubby and I enjoyed relaxing with a glass of wine in the peace and quiet. Perfect for a small family getaway! Diana, Rodger and Levon made us feel very welcome and the cottage is just perfect, everything you need for a weekend holiday. Highly recommend.
Renee - October 2022 Little slice of paradise. Very clean and well thought out airbnb. Providing a shovel for hot water beach experience is genuis and much appreciated. All basic kitchenette cutlery and tools etc available to prepare basic meals. Lovely setting! The orchard view from the outdoor bath is particularly lovely at sunrise! The organic fruits provided are simply divine!
Wendy - October 2022 very good location, just several minutes drive from hot water beach and Hahei. The orchard is beautiful and quiet, a lot of place and animals for kid to explore and play with, not to mention the fresh fruit. The Bach is tidy and clean, there are so many details inside the room shows that the host is care about the guest. Diana and her family are very kind. It is a wonderful experience to stay here, super recommend.
Noelani - October 2022 What a lovely place with all the details thought of. Private and peaceful place amongst nature, an outdoor bath under the stars, a comfortable bed and all the amenities available to you. We loved every minute, thank you!
