Mod glass house plus 2 retro caravans by the sea.
Thames Coromandel District,Waikato,New Zealand
Modern architecturally designed holiday home (1dbed/open plan) plus 2 guest caravans overlooking the sea at Tuateawa, north-east of Coromandel town (located 3 hours drive from Auckland International Airport). A great place to unwind surrounded by nature, and very private. You get the house, caravans and grounds to yourself (our property manager lives nearby). It is an ideal base for self drive visitors to explore the Coromandel Peninsula. It suits guests who are happy to self cater as there are no restaurants nearby, but we can recommend local suppliers of fresh seafood in Coromandel town. The house is located beside a large Pohutakawa tree with intimate sea views below and beyond to Mercury Island and the surrounding native forest. 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 two 1970s Chevron caravans are located across the lawn from the deck of the house. One has its own deck and one has an awning, both have sea views. There is a separate shower and toilet externally accessed to serve the 2 caravans. A natures lover's retreat with tui, kereru, kaka, pheasants and quail visiting. Leave an outside light on at night and puriri moths attract morepork owls right on to the deck. Tuateawa has a stony beach which is good for kayaking, fishing, and snorkelling. Great for rock pool exploring. Look for Eagle rays at low tide in the shallows. Ten minutes drive 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. Our holiday house has featured in 2 books '100 Dream Homes from Down Under' and 'Big House Little House'. Our holiday house is ideal for a couple, and the 2 retro caravans are for any extra guests. We provide full linen and towels for guests in the house. We ask caravan guests to bring their own linen and towels (pillows, blankets, duvets provided). Thanks
