One Step Away from Heaven
At the end of a beautiful country road lies the most breathtaking hideaway, nestled amongst the Manuka trees with views spanning from Kuaotunu to Great Barrier Island. We arrived on a sunny afternoon, the air was hot and the breeze was very welcomed. Settling in the first thing we noticed was the silence, not a car, plane or boats could be heard. It had been a while since we'd experienced such peacefulness, we felt instantly relaxed in our new home for a few days.
The evenings were spent soaking up the sun and making simple dinners on the bbq. Kuaotunu is one of those special places in the Coromandel that gets to experience the sunset and let me tell you, it is really something else from up there. The days were spent exploring the surrounding beaches and bike trails around the area. We were lucky to have the most perfect weather, making decisions on where to spend the day that much harder! However, you can't really go wrong here.
This intimate escape is perfect for two, looking to escape the city and reconnect with nature....
