Welcome to ‘Taumata’, a three bedroom holiday home with beautiful views over Hot Water Beach in New Zealand’s stunning Coromandel Peninsula. You are moments from the beach, which is only 50 metres walk away.

Hot Water Beach has been named as one of the top ten beaches in the world, and makes a perfect holiday spot. It is located on the east coast of the Coromandel Peninsula, between Tairua and Hahei Beach, around 2 hours drive from Auckland or Hamilton.

Hot Water Beach is unique as hot springs flow to the surface of the beach at low tide, meaning you can relax in your own thermal hot pool which you literally dig out of the sand. We provide a free set of shovels and spades to dig your pool.

Hot Water Beach is great for fishing, surfing, beach and bush walks, kayaking, bird-watching. Plus the lagoons at either end of the beach are ideal for kids to swim and fish in.

Nearby are Hahei Beach and the picture-perfect Cathedral Cove both are only a 10-15 minute drive away, with Cooks Beach, Flaxmill Bay and Ferry Landing only 15-20 minutes away (where you can enjoy a short ferry ride across to Whitianga and Mercury Bay).

Taumata is one of very few homes at Hot Water Beach, and is available to rent on a long or short term basis to careful and responsible families and mature groups.

We are constantly upgrading Taumata, and we now feature a new concrete driveway up to the house.

    Great location , but unfortunately a house is being built in front of them and they may lose some of their amazing view.
