When you round the corner and catch your first sight of Otautu Bay, you will think you have arrived in paradise. The sweeping bay is extremely sheltered, particularly at the western end where our house is one of a handful of residences and baches. Ideal for a short break to refresh from every day stresses or a longer holiday to truly unwind, Otautu Bay sits on the western side of the Coromandel Peninsula and has a sheltered boat ramp approximately 100m from the house. Whether your choice of activity is fishing, diving, swimming, walking or just relaxing, you will be able to get your fix in this environment. If you need a change of scenery, Otautu Bay is the gateway to one of New Zealand's truly magnificent coastal roads leading to Port Jackson. Not for the faint hearted but well worth the effort for amazing Pohutukawas and the dramatic drops down to the ocean. On the other side, Port Charles offers a different perspective to the Coromandel with a number of walking tracks around the Head, and rocky bays. Forgotten some goodies for the holiday, don't worry. The Colville Store is a collective that stocks an amazing amount of produce and supplies and does a fantastic dinner. And if you haven't caught enough seafood, Coromandel offers a number of options for brilliant seafood to bring back to put on the BBQ.

    Totally in love with Otautu Bay, just magic! Such a treat to be able to stay in this beautiful little bach. Two indoor living areas made it a comfortable fit for our family of five. Looking forward to returning.

    The photo's capture the ambience of the house. Idyllic location and well worth the drive down the road from Thames.
