The Hush Story

The rustic, cosy cabins of Hush Boutique Accommodation are surrounded by beautiful New Zealand native bush giving a feeling of privacy and seclusion.  They are very popular with couples who are looking for affordable, unique and peaceful accommodation.  The open plan communal Alfresco kitchen & dining area allows guests to dine in the fully equipped kitchen and to socialise with other guests, or not, the choice is yours.  The abundance of native birdlife completes the picture.  A true Kiwi experience.

The Hush cabins were originally designed to replicate the first gold miner's cabins that were built in Coromandel Town in the 1850s when gold was first discovered here.  They are constructed from local pine which was milled at The Colville Sawmill located on the Peninsula.

The Hush House was built in the 1950s.  At one stage, it was used as a gathering place for some of the best creative artisans in Coromandel and for a while was painted candy pink.  Many people stayed there, created there and partied there.  If walls could talk there would be some very interesting stories being told!  The area has a special feel and entices people to relax, kick back and enjoy their surroundings and listen to the abundant bird life that exists in the area.

Many believe that Hush was built on a ley line, which may be why it has such a special feel.

Steve and Marilyn bought Hush in late 2016.  They had decided to return home to New Zealand after spending many years away travelling and working on luxury yachts around the world.  Their adventure had started on their own yacht many years earlier and they finally finished their circumnavigation in the year 2000.  Family beckoned so the decision to come home was made.

The transition from the ocean-based hospitality of Luxury Yachts to on the land hospitality was effortless for the pair.  The easy-going nature of Coromandel Town was all the confirmation they needed that Hush and New Zealand was the right choice for them!

"We love meeting new people, and we look forward to welcoming you into the special ambience of Hush and Coromandel Town.  Hush is peaceful, beautiful and relaxed.  A perfect escape for anyone." - Steve and Marilyn, your Hush hosts.
