“2013 Gold Winner Golden Piwa Awards ~ BEST LOCATION ~

Come & sea what all the fuss is about ~ you won't be disappointed!

Castaway Cottage welcomes couples and small family groups to experience a little slice of seaside heaven. The timber-lined cottage is cosy, simple and open-plan with combined kitchen & dining.

Cooking facilities include bench top 2 element/oven, a gas BBQ Double (cosy) bed on the ground level and a loft above with 2 single mattresses. Open fire-pit for roasting marshmallows.

A serene seaside escape where you will relax, unwind and rejuvenate your spirit. Privately located on a coastal farm and surrounded by Pohutukawa trees with ocean waves crashing against the rocky foreshore just metres away. Incredible ocean views south over to Kuaotunu and Matarangi coastline and east to Great Mercury Island.

If you are fortunate you will spot the dolphins or whales just offshore. The rocky seashore invites snorkelling, fishing, sea- kayaking or beachcombing for treasures. Day trips can be comfortably taken from Castaway Cottage to explore further north - Little Bay, Waikawau Beach (surf beach) or visit Colville, Port Charles, Stony Bay.

Tuateawa is located approximately 30 minute drive from Coromandel Town - the last stop for petrol and provisions. Off the beaten track, this coastal area has a spectacular rocky coastline with high cliffs and rocky foreshore and fabulous flora and fauna - a true nature lover's paradise. Beautiful white sand beaches are located south at Kennedy Bay (6 kms) or north 10 kms to Little Bay and Waikawau.

No shops out this way with Coro Town being the last stop for petrol & provisions. Waikawau DOC Camp Store open for basics. Approx.15 minutes drive North.

    We were very tempted to write a terrible review so we can kept this incredible place to ourselves but we thought better of it ! This charming little bach has everything that you could want and need for a superbly relaxing holiday we adored every minute and will certainly be coming again. It is especially wonderful for those - like us - who are after privacy and entertainment from nothing more than watching the bush and sea birds swooping by and ever changing light on the sea.

    Extremely simple but beautifully so... remote and peaceful. Completely unplugged and relaxed.

  • As good as described, even better really

    As good as described, even better really. Fully equipped, clean, nice little extras. Just the place to recover from a long haul flight and jet lag.

    Picturesque and very quiet location at Tuateawa looking across to Great Mercury Island. Had great sleeps in a comfortable bed. Rustic style cabin built in more of the old style of a New Zealand bach provides sufficient comforts to enjoy the beautiful surroundings..
