Best of Both Worlds - situated close to beaches

 My family and I had the most relaxing Easter break at this warm, inviting property. Plenty of room for us all (5) to do our own thing - kitchen was easy to work in and having large pantry space was a bonus. The outside area was great catching the sun at the various times of the day. We just loved it and would love to stay again. Definitely recommend to others - just a wonderful property. Many thanks. 

Kuaotunu Lookout - Kuaotunu Holiday Home

 Fab views. A lovely relaxing spot. 

The Green Bach - Ocean front beach house

 The Green Bach is a perfect batch to get away from hustle and bustle of busy Auckland and experience paradise on the coromandel. You could not ask for a better location of being right on the beach waking up to 180 degree sea views every day and going to sleep and waking up to the sound of the sea. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we will defnitely be back. The bach is well equipped and the beds very comfortable. Thanks for an awesome time! 

The Blue Penguin     - Kuaotunu Holiday Home

 What a great bach, location and facilities. We'll certainly be back to the Blue Penguin.
