Bach or holiday home, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 4)
My husband was born on the farm we purchased and from which we now own/operate Combat & Fun Zone. Our two, now adult, children were born and went to school here and are now raising their families just up the road from the farm. Joan Gaskell Drive, the main road into Whitianga, is named after Eric's Mum. She was a well known identity in the area.
EricandSandyG purchased this House in 2013
Why EricandSandyG chose Kuaotunu
We decided that one day we might retire out to Kuaotunu Beach. It's a great spot for fishing and you can be fishing from the boat just a few minutes after launching. The day we came across this property the sun was shining so brightly, the house looked a picture. We popped over to the beach and the sand was gleaming white in the bright sunlight. I was sold! Magnolia Hideaway has the added benefit of being just 25 minutes away from our farm, which is handy if we need a night away from where we live/work. It's difficult to go too far with so many animals to take care of and we can duck back a forth in no time.

Great location, lovely holiday house... all you need!
We loved our stay...a gorgeous holiday house with everything you could need. Beach across the road, Luke’s Kitchen a wander down the road for pizza and wine and coffee! Lovely big deck to sit out on while the kids ran about on the big front lawn. Would definitely stay again...
A lovely cottage which is well-kept with with up to date fittings and equipment. A friendly neighbour and a pretty garden add to the sense of satisfaction. The beach is not visible from the bach but is located just across the road and over a small mound.
The lively Luke‘s Kitchen is just down the road and serves as the perfect holiday eating place.
Although described as having two bathrooms, the bach only has a single bathroom with a separate toilet.
Oh! Terribly sorry re 2 bathrooms listed! When the change over from Bookabach to HomeAway occurred it also listed us as having 1 bedroom not 2! Will change immediately and thank you for bringing this to our attention.
Excellent position yet convenient walk to the village and Luke's Kitchen.
Excellent position yet convenient walk to the village and Luke's Kitchen. Right opposite beautiful beach - perfect for my morning dip! Beautifully appointed property, with lovely sunny deck, fragrant plants. Superb kitchen and bathing facilities. Beautiful garden - thanks for the tomatoes and courgettes and chillies! A lovely retreat. Just perfect.
We loved staying at Magnolia Hideaway.
We loved staying at Magnolia Hideaway. The location is unbeatable, right across the road from a 5-star beach, far from the madding crowd but with Luke's Kitchen pizzeria and bar a short stroll away. The bach is lovely, has been nicely modernised with a great modern kitchen and bathroom area. There's a big deck that leads out to a huge, fully fenced lawn - perfect for young children. The one downside was there were lots of flies around so maybe a fly spray dispenser could help during summer!
Thanks Colin :) Thanks for the feedback. The flies certainly were enjoying this humid weather! Unfortunately the dispenser ran empty just prior to your visit and we didn't have time to run a refill out before your stay. Sorry about that!! Hope it didn't put you off a return visit:)
This is a beautiful spot for a holiday.
This is a beautiful spot for a holiday. The house is fantastic and well set up with everything we could possibly need and it was extremely clean and well maintained. We appreciated the veggies from the impressive veggie patch and our kids adored the huge tree in the garden. We loved being just across the road from the beach. We'll be back. Thank you.

Magnolia Hideaway is a great base from which to check out the many beautiful beaches of the Coromandel. Rings, Matarangi, Whangapoua and New Chums beaches to the left of the cottage and Otama, Opito, Matapaua Bay, Wharekaho, Brophey's and Buffalo Beaches in the other direction. All within 5 to 30 minutes drive. Further a field are the famous Hahei and Hot Water Beaches and Cathedral. The Coromandel is a great place for recreational fishing but if you don't have a boat there are plenty of charters available. Mini Putt, a Farm Park, Bird Park and Fun Zone (9 activities) are all within 30-40 minutes drive and Coromandel Town has the Driving Creek Railway and WaterWorx. Plenty to keep everyone happy.
