Just right for a perfect weekend romantic getaway, or some well-deserved break, Oystercatchers Retreat is a modern fully self-contained Bach/house located at Tararu Bay, approximately 3km north of Thames. The beach is just across the road with a large contingent of oystercatchers that take up residence at high tide. The house gets all day sun and takes in wide sea views from the front of the house. Historic Thames is 2 minutes by car, and Coromandel Town is only 45 minutes’ drive up the beautiful Thames coast road. Auckland and Hamilton are both only 1 1/2 hours’ drive. Oystercatchers Retreat is the perfect place for a relaxing weekend break (or longer), or a great base for hiking, fishing, cycling, or just exploring the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula. Hosts Allan and Natalia will be happy to assist with any special requests.
