The space
Tucked away and elevated seventy meters from the tranquil beach paradise of Little Bay we offer an open plan beach home. There are two double bedrooms, a large open plan kitchen and living room with extensive views over native bush to the beach and wrap around decks to the northern and western side. The house can sleep 4 adults comfortably.

The master bedroom is upstairs with the bathroom and the double bedroom downstairs. There is a single separate toilet. The house is fully furnished including many kitchen extras.

Access is private up a driveway which ensures your privacy, yet you are less than five minutes walk to the beach. Parking is directly at the back door (easy access and no need to carry up stairs) and the house is surrounded by native bush.

Little Bay is 28 kilometers north from Coromandel town on the Eastern Coast. The road is not sealed and you should plan to drive with care. The scenery on the drive requires so time to stop and take photos or simply enjoy the view. Plan at least 50 minutes drive from Coromandel, which is also the last town for food , petrol and all medical supplies. All amenities can be found in Coromandel, we recommend buying some freshly smoked fish, enjoying a organic cafe either in town, or at the Driving creek railway on you’re way. Coromandel has fantastic coffee and great handmade local art and designs.

Draped with ancient Pohutakawa (New Zealand’s own christmas tree) trees and soft white sand Little Bay and it’s small sister beach Teeny Bay are among the most idyllic and pristine beaches to be found in the north island of New Zealand.

Situated within 2 1/2 hours drive from Auckland city centre, this is paradise without the people and home to the dolphin pods whom frequent the bay. The bay is surrounded by native bush and local fauna,whistling Tui’s are heard from the balcony and the sound of Kereru ( native wood pigeons ) overhead are frequent visitors.

The beach is popular and safe for swimming, snorkeling, diving, and fishing. The area is surrounded by natural walking tracks through subtropical forest with spectacular over the pacific toward Great Barrier Island.

Next to Little Bay is the 3 km white sand surf beach of Waikawau Bay.
Boogie boards, beach toys are available to borrow (no cost).

Ally has spent many hours exploring the Coromandel since her introduction to adventure racing brought her to the mine shafts, secret Kauri forest groves and creeks that only the Coromandel has to offer. During her first multisport race, the Moheau Man, she paddled her kayak out of Waikawau Bay and saw the line of red tractors on the beach of Little Bay and the Pohutakawa trees in full bloom on the beach. She vowed one day to return and for this to be her home. She has lived in Europe and Australia, travelled through South America, Asia and Canada and America, but has never found anywhere quite as special as Little Bay. Her next most favorite places are the Dolomite Mountains in Italy, the Alms in Austria, Balmoral beach in Sydney for a morning swim with friends, enjoying a Rose’ at lake Garda, and drinking hot chocolate in Barcelona. She has a passion for cooking, the outdoors and enjoying life on a bike. She loves for travelers to experience the special places in a country and see what the real Kiwi way of life is. Hagen was introduced to Little Bay by Ally and luckily fell in love with the bay instantly. He has travelled the globe and has seen many places, always on the search for a mix of hills, beach, water and tranquility. Originating from Germany, Hagen travelled to New Zealand and was drawn to the innovative spirit of Aoteroroa and the deep closeness to nature of the people. In Coromandel he found everything that he loves in a space he can embrace. He loves to be in the surf, running on shady trails, enjoying fantastic coffee and conversation in one of the local cafes.
