A modest but cozy two-bedroom home nestled in a private cliff-top corner bathed in stunning sunsets and surrounded by NZ nature at its best. Experience what guests have described as 'spectacular, one of a kind, breathtaking and magical views.

The space
Coromandel Island-view experience is a small sunny, cliff-top bungalow with two bedrooms, an open plan living area, a fire place and two decks. It's located on a peninsula overlooking Wyuna Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Watch the sun set over distant islands and enjoy NZ nature at its best. For those driving, there is ample parking for the car and it is located only a short drive (5 minutes) along gorgeous coast line to historic Coromandel Township.

Close by is Wyuna Bay, which is a lovely swimming spot at the end of the road, or take a walk to Long Bay Beach (about 25 minutes).

It's also the perfect place to shamelessly chill with a growing library of DVD's, books, CDs, games, NETFLIX, NEON and the internet. Also on hand is a gas bbq and a Breville infuser coffee maker. The kitchen is well equipped and chef-friendly with a herb and spice rack and basic cooking ingredients to get creative with. Kick back, relax, and enjoy the ever-changing views!

Where you’ll be

Coromandel Town, Coromandel, New Zealand

Explore the old gold mining town of Coromandel and take part in any number of activities nearby including: fishing tours, kayak adventures, bush walks and hikes, mussel barge snapper safaris, sail charters, kayak fishing and the famous driving creek railway - an open train ride through gorgeous rain forest. The train stops at a spectacular view point where you can look across the peninsula. Kids will love Water Works which is a quirky theme park with fun water gadgets and inventions to play with.

Visit award-winning restaurants (such as the Pepper Tree) and great cafes in the township. Umu is a perfect breakfast/brunch spot, and it is not uncommon to see people helicopter in to the famous Mussel Kitchen for lunch or dinner in summer. The Driving Creek Cafe is also a great spot to have brunch or lunch.

For adventurers looking to explore further afield, the location is a great base for checking out both the northern and eastern side of the peninsula. To the North, New Chum's Beach (15 km away), was voted one of the top 20 deserted beaches in the world by The Observer, and highly rated by the Lonely Planet and National Geographic.

Favorite tourist spots on the east coast include Hot Water Beach and Cathedral Cove Marine Reserve (featured in rapper Macklemore's music video). Or relax and unwind at a natural geothermal spa and springs near Whitianga. The east coast is also home to some of New Zealand's most pristine, white sand beaches, and a popular holiday destination for New Zealanders.

To get to Coromandel Town from the airport or from Auckland city, there are a number of options:

The fastest option is to fly with Flystark - $175 NZ per person (minimum 2 people). It takes only 20 minutes from Auckland International Airport.

You can also catch the ferry from Auckland city with the company 360 Discovery Cruises. It takes 2 hours. A free bus will pick you up from the wharf in Coromandel and take you in to town.

There are also shuttle vans that come to Coromandel Town - The company is called Go Kiwi. It takes 3 hours.

Finally there is a bus company called Intercity. It takes 4.5 hours (with a stopover in Thames). Intercity also goes to other parts of NZ from Coromandel Town, such as Whitianga, Thames, Rotorua etc.

Once in the town, the information center in Coromandel Town can help arrange tours and transportation to areas on the peninsula. A rental car facility is also located in the township and at Auckland airport.

It is quite possible to get around without a car (as we do) - by walking and calling a taxi every now and then! But adventurers may want to hire a car.

Please note that we have a two-day minimum stay in January. We strongly advise early bookings for December and January as bookings start coming in as early as February. We also have a minimum two day stay for weekends in February. However, for those wishing to stay only one night we can organize a slightly higher price to cover extra cleaning and linen costs.

If it's a special day for one of your favorite people and you would like to arrange flowers/cake etc, please let us know. Our property manager may be able to organize something!

Small children must be supervised at all times outdoors and on both decks.

Pete and I are professors based in Saudi Arabia and while we are away from home, it brings us much joy to open our house to airbnb guests from NZ and afar. I grew up in Auckland, NZ and Pete hails from the U.S, and although there were many great places in NZ to settle, we both fell in love with Coromandel Town on a visit in 2013. It quickly reminded me of the NZ I knew growing up, and we are excited to share this experience with you. As the gates close, we hope you find a restful place where daily stresses are left behind, and where precious life-long memories are made with your favorite people.
