Our 2 EcoPods are set amongst extensive gardens overlooking our Persimmon orchard and are close to nature walks, tramping, mountain biking tracks, safe swimming and surf beaches. Town centre with numerous cafes, restaurants and shops is only 8 minutes drive away. A great place as a base to tour the Coromandel e.g. Hot Water Beach is 45 minutes drive. You’ll love our place because of the comfy beds, peacefulness and typical Kiwi Hospitality. Please note the cost is $60.00 per person per night.
“My partner and I had easily one of the best Air BnB experiences at Maryann and Russel's place. I planned a last minute getaway for my boyfriends birthday and they went above and beyond to make the weekend extra special. Given short notice about our stay, Maryann and Russel were very responsive and accommodating. The bungalow was cosy and the surrounding garden's provided a lovely spot to relax. A short drive from Whangamata, it was a great place to stay that enabled us to enjoy some piece and quiet whilst still having easy access to the beach and cafes :)”
Beautiful pristine surf beaches and parks. You will enjoy our place with its great location, the people, close to cafes/restaurants, shops and of course the beautiful beach which is just a 3 min drive or a 15 min walk. Also close by are 2 golf courses, mountain bike tracks, fishing charters and you could even learn to surf. Ideal for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. Whangamata was voted NZś best beach by the 2018 NZ Herald.
“Had a wonderful time at Steph's home. We were made to feel very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Steph is a really friendly and helpful host who has a wealth of great knowledge about the Coromandel area and beyond. Her home made biscuits are absolutely delicious. Would highly recommend Ocean Blue to anyone who is looking for a great centre to explore the Coromandel Peninsula from. Many thanks Steph for allowing us to share your home for the 3 nights.”
We are 5 minutes drive from the main shopping area. Whangamata has a mix of ocean beaches, rainforest and a safe boating harbour. Some of the best surfing breaks in the country. Take to the hills for tramping, mountain biking, horse riding and historic gold mine sites. Plenty of cafes and restaurants to enjoy. If you want to explore further afield our location is a perfect base for those wanting to explore the Coromandel and the Bay of Plenty. Being rural means more starry nights to enjoy.
“We found Joy's place to be everything that was advertised with all the little touches to make a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. The layout is lovely , very comfy bed & room to stretch out in the lounge. Kitchen had everything one could want as well. The little deck is also well thought out and private . Easy to drive to town & beaches too.”
