River's edge holiday house

 Lovely stay, has everything you need & clean and tidy. 

Beachfront - Whangapoua - opposite island

 Lovely little house. Only meters from Whangapoua Beach. Very close to New Chums Beach. Very comfortable bed in main bedroom. House is well looked after and clean. My husband and I were there at the end of February and it was very quiet and peaceful. 

Whangapoua Escape Award Winning Bach, Coromandel


Seas The Day. Modern family bach.

 Perfect location, close to New Chams and other great beaches+House is really tidy, new and offers a lot for kids and families. Outdoor shower and gas heated water, dishwasher and great layout. Highly recommend! 

Toa Iti (Little Warrior)

 We all had a fantastic stay at the Toa Iti, a cosy and clean bach that had everything we needed. Whanapoua is a neat place and I highly recommend a walk to New Chums. The local store was also excellent, friendly staff, freshly baked donuts. Will come again. 

Toa Iti (Little Warrior)

 Really cool house! Easy to walk to beach and shop. Would definitely stay here again :)
