The Blue Penguin is an extraordinary three-bedroom Kuaotunu holiday home offering an incredible position to enjoy Coromandel's unique ecology as well as some stunning sea views. Set just back from the beach, next to a tranquil stream, and enjoying all day sun, The Blue Penguin is a slice of absolute bliss!

This Kuaotunu holiday home is two-storied, open plan and is less than 2 minutes walk to the white sands of Kuaotunu beach! Once you've spent all day fishing, in one of New Zealand's best fishing spots, come back to The Blue Penguin where you'll find a fish gutting and prep area to prepare, and, if you're feeling hungry, grill it up on the BBQ! If you're not yet ready to leave that competitive streak behind, come down to the games area and play either pool or table tennis!

This Kuaotunu accommodation is equipped with everything for preparing a wonderful meal, there's a microwave, oven, two fridges, and a freezer. There's a coffee machine for your morning wake up call, too! The living area is superbly furnished and includes a TV with Freeview, as well as a DVD player with an extensive library for those lazy summer days, and a fireplace for cooler times of the year. There is also a BOSE Bluetooth player for your own music collection. There are three bedrooms. There are two bedrooms upstairs. One of the upstairs bedrooms, the master bedroom, has a king sized bed, an ensuite, and a Bose CD stereo so you can take in your favorite tunes as you enjoy that view! There are two other bedrooms, both featuring wooden floors - one with a queen and a cot and the 3rd bedroom has two double beds and two single beds.

There are plenty of chances to enjoy outdoor living at The Blue Penguin with deck space in spades. Cook dinner on the BBQ, eat on the outdoor furniture, and then, (when you've had too much to eat!) settle into the outdoor beanbags and watch the sunset.

Waddle into The Blue Penguin today - welcome to one of New Zealand's most beautiful places!

  • Great house and location for a large family get together

    Great house and location for a large family get together. There are enough communal areas and private areas within the house to be social or have some peace and quiet. Excellent kitchen. Loved the library. Very large upstairs room that sleeps a brood!

    We really enjoyed staying at this property. The house was great, well furnished, clean and tidy plus lots of room to relax. Lovely view from the deck plus just a short walk to the beautiful beach. Highly recommend this place.
