Just Paradise – Kuaotunu, Coromandel

Where: Just Paradise, Kuaotunu West, Coromandel, New Zealand

When: February 2006 and March 2007

Who: Extended family

Why: Check out the gallery and you’ll see why… this place really is “Just Paradise”. My husband proposed to me here!

Accommodation Details: Just Paradise is a beautiful two-story, 5 bedroom holiday home that sleeps 10. There are 4 bedrooms on the lower level and a large loft upstairs. The kitchen is large and functional, with all the conveniences of home. The adjoining open-plan dining and lounge area are comfortable and will easily accommodate larger groups. The view is magnificent: guests look out over the saltwater, solar-heated infinity pool to Rings Beach and beyond.

The owners live in separate quarters upstairs; however, the holiday accommodation is still completely private and you won’t even know your hosts are on the premises.

The Verdict:

Kuaotunu is a little off the beaten track, while still being handy enough to Whitianga and Coromandel Town. It is also an ideal starting point for exploring other parts of the Coromandel Peninsula such as Hot Water Beach, Hahei and Cathedral Cove. It’s safe, white sandy beaches are perfect for swimming, snorkelling and fishing. It truly is paradise here, which is why we’ve stayed twice and intend to stay again!

Posts to Come …

At the moment my PC is away getting fixed – darn viruses, not to mention the useless, very well-known antivirus software company that my ‘techy’ brother told me was absolute cr*p. He couldn’t have been more correct.

Anyhooooo… once I get my computer back, with all my holiday photos in tact (pretty please/fingers crossed), I will start working on the following holiday posts:

  • Just Paradise – Kuaotunu, Coromandel
  • Powderhorn Chateau – Ohakune
  • Pohutukawa Lodge – Lake Tarawera
  • Telegraph Hill – Havelock North
  • Riverside Retreat – Martinborough
  • Freddie’s Place – Raglan (I know, I know. I still need to complete that post).

Another thing I’m considering is getting a domain name. If I do go that route, then my website will be http://www.newzealandholidaybliss.com (assuming that name is still available when I get round to it). I’ll keep you posted.

I look forward to sharing more of my New Zealand holidays with you real soon!
