  • Across the road from beautiful Kuaotunu Beach with its gorgeous sunsets and seascapte views.
  • 300 mtrs from boat ramp. Centre of Whitianga & Coromandel towns. Great base to explore the region.
  • Booster installed for excellent cell phone coverage. Use your ph 'hot spot' to connect to internet.

Magnolia Hideaway is set at the back of a large fully fenced section. Morning sun streams through the bedroom windows and moves across the front of the house during the day. The large magnolia tree provides ample shade.

Kuaotunu is pretty much centre of both Whitianga and Coromandel townships making it the ideal position for exploring the Coromandel Peninsula.

Otama Beach (our personal favourite) is only about 5minutes drive from the Kuaotunu Settlement road and further on is Opitio Bay. These are great alternatives to Kuaotunu Beach if there are on shore winds.

The boat ramp is just 300 metres up the road on the left. You can be fishing 3-5 minutes from launching or you can head over to Mercury Island, easily visible from the ramp. Kennedy Bay is also a great fishing spot.

The kayaks are yours to use, but please, bring your own life jackets or request a couple to be left for your use. The heavy duty plastic kayaks must be carried across the road to avoid damage.

Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach should be on your 'to do' list, however, they can be very busy, so early or late in the day would be best, though check the tides for Hot Water Beach if you want to dig for the hot water.

To the north (towards Coromandel Town) are Matarangi and Whangapoua Beaches. New Chums (a walk from Whangapoua Beach) has been rated as one of the top beaches in the world.

Coromandel Town is worth a visit too. Quite different from Whitianga. It's a fishing town. The beaches aren't as pretty as this side, but the views are gorgeous and there are some great cafes and restaurants. Check out the Driving Creek Railway for a trip up through the native bush or if fishing is your thing, this is a great place to go on a fishing charter.

Whitianga is the main shopping centre on the Peninsula so stock up on groceries and check out the many cafes and restaurants.

This is a gorgeous place to relax and taking in the beauty of this lovely piece of paradise. Enjoy!

  • Amazing location opposite one of the most stunning white sand beaches

    Amazing location opposite one of the most stunning white sand beaches. Fantastic property with all the basic essentials provided making for an easy stay, including fluffy towels and a fully equipped kitchen for cooking up some great meals. Perfect rental for the two of us 'grown ups' and our toddler son, who loved the toy box!! We cannot wait to be able to plan another trip back :-)
