Modern architecturally designed bach (1 x double bed/open plan by Melling Morse) plus guest caravan overlooking the sea at Tuateawa, north-east of Coromandel town. This bach has been featured in '100 Dream Homes from Down Under' , 'House and Garden' February 2012 and 'Big House Little House'.

The bach is located beside a large Pohutakawa tree with intimate sea views below and beyond to Mercury Island and the surrounding native bush. Excellent views from the jetty deck when dolphins or Orcas visit the bay. Also great for viewing Tuateawa's surf break when it's working.

The 1970s Chevron caravans are located across the lawn from the deck of the house. The orange one is set up for extra guests as sleeping acommadition. It has its own deck and sea veiws. The blue caravan is a quite space plus storage for recreational equipment. There is a separate shower and toilet externally accessed to serve the caravans.

A natures lover's retreat with Tui, Kereru, Kaka, pheasants and quail visiting. Leave an outside light on at night and Puriri moths bring Morepork owls right on to the deck.

Tuateawa has a stony beach which is good for kayaking, fishing, snorkelling and swimming at high tide. Great for rock pool exploring. Look for Eagle rays at low tide in the shallows.

The Tuateawa boat ramp is just down the road for the launching of kayaks and tin boats.

While 10 minutes further north are the classic sandy swimming beaches of Little Bay and Waikawau.

Little Bay is a sheltered bay, a great safe beach for children, with a lagoon and Pohutukawa trees for shade. Waikawau beach is a beautiful long stretch of golden sand, with good waves, popular with board riders and surf casters. Waikawau campground has a shop during the summer months for essentials.
