The Blue Penguin is an extraordinary three-bedroom Kuaotunu holiday home offering an incredible position to enjoy Coromandel's unique ecology as well as some stunning sea views. Set just back from the beach, next to a tranquil stream, and enjoying all day sun, The Blue Penguin is a slice of absolute bliss!

This Kuaotunu holiday home is two-storied, open plan and is less than 2 minutes walk to the white sands of Kuaotunu beach! Once you've spent all day fishing, in one of New Zealand's best fishing spots, come back to The Blue Penguin where you'll find a fish gutting and prep area to prepare, and, if you're feeling hungry, grill it up on the BBQ! If you're not yet ready to leave that competitive streak behind, come down to the games area and play some pool!

This Kuaotunu accommodation is equipped with everything for preparing a wonderful meal, there's a microwave, oven, two fridges, and a freezer. There's a coffee machine for your morning wake up call, too!

The living area is superbly furnished and includes a TV with Freeview, as well as a DVD player with an extensive library for those lazy summer days, and a fireplace for cooler times of the year. There is also a BOSE Bluetooth player for your own music collection. An additional TV and a DVD Player are available in the games room.

There are three bedrooms. There are two bedrooms upstairs. One of the upstairs bedrooms, the master bedroom, has a king sized bed, an ensuite, and a Bose CD stereo so you can take in your favourite tunes as you enjoy that view! There are two other bedrooms, both featuring wooden floors - one with a queen and a cot and the 3rd bedroom has a double bed, a queen bed and two single beds.

There are plenty of chances to enjoy outdoor living at The Blue Penguin with deck space in spades. Cook dinner on the BBQ, eat on the outdoor furniture, and then, (when you've had too much to eat!) settle into the outdoor beanbags and watch the sunset.

Waddle into The Blue Penguin today - welcome to one of New Zealand's most beautiful places!

Stayed July 2022

My word, just had the best time in your lovely Bach. Arty and creative space with views over the water. Walkable to beaches in all weather. Thanks so much

Stayed November 2021

This was a lovely welcoming family home with amazing indoor outdoor flow, and stunning views of the ocean. T. Because of the way the house was positioned among established trees it was very private from neighbours & traffic sounds. The book selection and games room meant the TV was seldom on & the well established kitchen was appreciated as we are all foodies. We all came away feeling very relaxed and well rested. Thank you so much.

Great location, lovely house, well appointed to enjoy in winter.

Stayed May 2019

We were welcomed into a lovely holiday home. The provisions such as the pool table were a favourite of ours. My family and I had an immensely enjoyable time at our stay and it was definitely a memorable experience. Thank you!

I can heartily recommend the Blue Penguin as a holiday house. It is close to a lovely beach and we (five adults) found it extremely comfortable to stay in, with many homely touches. The extensive book and DVD libraries were much appreciated. Kuaotunu is an excellent location for visiting the sights on the Coromandel Peninsula, with good access to both the east and west coasts. Although there is limited internet and mobile access, we did have some coverage through one of the networks and the free wifi at nearby Luke's Kitchen, accompanied by delicious coffee and muffins, more than made up for the intermittent coverage at the house. We had a great experience using Bachcare. The staff were professional and helpful, the house exceeded our expectations, and the location was wonderful.
