On Colville Road, 13 km north of Coromandel town. Coastal position to enjoy sea and beaches with great sea views from gardens and lookout. Easy but discrete track (3 min walk) through lush native forest reserve to reach very secluded swimming, picnicking and sunbathing beach.

You may hear kiwi at night in the adjacent bush reserve, and you can join the generations of families who have photographed their children on the historic "Big Tomato" (visit him on his own Facebook page "The Big Tomato PapaAroha")

This is an excellent base for exploring the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula. Enjoy good fishing and swimming, local bush and river walks. Only a few minutes’ drive to Driving Creek Railway and other fascinating local tourist attractions. Plenty of room for boats and cars - this is your perfect basecamp for Coromandel fishing competitions, and for cycle and kayak teams or film crews.

This is also a perfect base from which to enjoy the Open Studios Coromandel Arts Tour. With glass, ceramic, jewellery, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, carving, textile and fibre art, woodworking there really is something for everyone!

Visiting in autumn is a treat. More settled weather than summer, mirror-like sea, magic sunsets, collect blackberries for your breakfast porridge or cereal. No traffic. And your almost private beach becomes your pretty much absolutely private beach.

Special conditions: Minimum booking is for 2 nights. Minimum charge as for 4 people applies 20 Dec - 31 January.

    We had the most wonderful stay at the Big Tomato! We couldn't have asked for a better time. We loved everything about it, the location and view are stunning. Our hosts went above and beyond when we had car trouble, they were amazing! We will definitely be back :)

    This is a very spacious and comfortable accommodation on a wonderful property, beautifully landscaped. Just across the road is an easy access to the ocean and relatively private beach which was a real bonus. We enjoyed our stay there very much.
