Te Puru Beach House Coromandel

 We have just returned home from our stay at Te Puru Beach House and want to say what a fabulous place to stay!! Clean, comfortable, secure and right across the road from the beach. We will definitely rebook to stay here again :)

The Reserve Whitianga - Near to Town and Sea

 Spacious relaxing place to stay - handy to everything, very clean & tidy. Wish we had longer! Thanks again :) 

Hot Water Beach: 'Taumata' Holiday Home

 Excellent accommodation as described in listing. Have stayed at Taumata a number of times, and never fails to delight. A great Bach in an equally great location! 

Maison Whitianga, Modern, Private

 The house was fantastic. 

Cook's Beach

 Great location and one of the best equipped bachs I've stayed in, the kids loved the kayaks and the estuary and Grant was a pleasure to deal with. 


 Scenic bush location. Very comfortable, clean, and private place to stay. Lots to do around about. We loved swimming in the river and under the waterfall and gazing at the starry sky at night.
