Modern architecturally designed holiday home (1double bed/open plan) overlooking the sea at Tuateawa, north-east of Coromandel town (located 3 hours drive from Auckland International Airport).

A great place to unwind surrounded by nature, and very private. You get the house, caravans and grounds to yourself (our property manager lives nearby).

About the neighbourhood
There are NO RESTAURANTS nearby - the nearest is 45minutes away in Coromandel town.
Our holiday home is located on the more remote northern tip of the peninsula. It suits self-drive and self-catering visitors, as there are no restaurants,cafes or bars nearby. This is a private hideaway surrounded by nature.
The beautiful beaches of Little Bay and Waikawau are a 15 minute drive away.
Many of the roads in our area are unsealed, so part of the adventure is driving shingle roads.
