A neat little holiday home tucked away in the native forest with gorgeous tree canopy views out towards the pacific ocean. Ideal for couples wanting to escape and retreat and can accommodate up to 4 people.

There is a comfortable futon style double bed and 2 slat lounges converting to single beds for sleeping. The kitchen has a 2 gas burner + small convection oven for cooking, medium sized refrigerator with top freezer. The covered deck converts to another “outdoor living” space with plenty of outdoor furniture and bean bags – a prime spot for bird watching (twitchers) and relaxing. Combined bathroom with shower, toilet and laundry.

Devoid of mod cons there is a good selection of reading material, board games, jigsaw puzzles for all ages + a CD/Radio player.

Resident kereu (NZ native wood pigeon) tuis, morepork plus many more wonderful native bird species and flora.

The rocky foreshore at Tuateawa can be rather good for fishing, snorkelling, kayaking or rockpooling. A short ten minute drive north is the pristine, golden sand swimming beach at Little Bay or 10 minute drive south to Kennedy Bay sandy beach. There are plenty of bush trails for both hikers and mountain bikers of all skill levels.

You're 30 minutes north of Coromandel Town which is the last stop for petrol and provisions. The bach has basic pantry and cleaning items. DOC (Department of Conservation) camp store open over the busy summer month just north of Little Bay. Otherwise it's back to Coromandel Town or the famous Colville General store.

Access and parking to Two in the Bush is approximately 150 metres from the roadway via unpaved driveway more suitable for 4WD's than low slung cars. There is room to park your vehicle off the road and just inside the gateway if this is your preference. Have a boat? Talk to our property manager about boat parking options.

    Hi there - the gate wasn't locked it was shut. There is chain latch on the inside of the gate which you needed to unhook to open the gate. We would have responded to a call from you and to let you know..... Cheers, Diane for Two in the Bush. :)

    The bach was a treat to stay in, very secluded with great bird life and a lovely view of the sea from the covered deck. The interior is actually more spacious than it looked to us in the photos. The 2 burner cooker and little convection oven were fine for holiday cooking.The drive was no problem for our AWD vehicle, if it was wet we would definitely have needed it for the turning area. A very enjoyable stay.

  • Beautiful area, lovely basic place to stay- very spacious and wonderfully private

    Beautiful area, lovely basic place to stay- very spacious and wonderfully private. The only drawback was the hot water cylinder was not on when we arrived, and did not heat up over the two days we were there. However, it didn't matter too much as the weather was perfect!

  • Entirely my fault for not researching enough - bach on steep hill,...

    Entirely my fault for not researching enough - bach on steep hill, far from rocky beach, not easy to get back up hill after walk!! driveway absolutely horrendous, our 4WD got seriously scratched, being a big car, difficult to manouver in space behind house. Puzzles, games, etc awesome. Water pressure terrible. NO microwave/beanbags/BBQ/full oven. Kids beds were mattresses on floor. Seriously OVERPRICED. Huge ant problem, not in kitchen. We still had a great break away.

    Owner/manager responds:

    We’re really sorry to hear your car got scratched; it is a narrow driveway for a big car. Beanbags were away being cleaned and the bases for the beds are currently on the deck as seating. No microwave, but there is a benchtop oven and a portable convection oven. Glad you enjoyed your stay anyway.
