Tui Cottage is a two-bedroom, self-contained unit at 80 Howard Road, Orere Point - a small coastal community located at the top of the Firth of Thames, and opposite the Coromandel Peninsula. It is approximately one hour from Auckland City and the airport. The beach is safe for swimming and popular for fishing and boating. From Tui Cottage, it is just a few minutes walk to the beach and the local store, which sells a range of provisions, newspapers, magazines etc., as well as takeaway food, wine and beer. Note that whilst the store carries a range of supplies, it is not a supermarket, so guests coming for several days should bring food supplies with them.

Within 30 minutes drive there are also four regional parks, natural hot pools, horse trekking, hiking and cycling tracks, and a world-renowned shorebird centre.

Your accommodation comprises a double bedroom with queen size bed and a second room with two single beds. There is a fully equipped kitchen with separate dining area, separate bathroom and toilet, and a laundry. The lounge features a potbelly stove for those seeking a snug winter hideaway. In addition, a gas BBQ is provided for guests to use.

A variety of DVD movies are available, together with a selection of books, magazines, games and puzzles.

Owners live on-site, so any problems or queries can be attended to promptly.

During the summer months, it is recommended that guests bring high SPF sunblock and insect repellent.

    Location is convenient to auckland and the cottage is cosy with the fire on. Easy to get to for a couple of nights away from Auckland.

  • Great location, tidy house with everything you need

    Great location, tidy house with everything you need. Access to great beach. Could do with a wifi extender but that’s being really nit picky. Lots of toys and books to keep the kids happy. No backyard / outside area for the kids to run around, but as I said, made up for with plenty of toys and books.
