Rejuvenate your body, mind and soul in one of Tutukaka’s best holiday homes that Coastal Holiday Homes has to offer.
Tutuakaka Sanctuary is set in a micro climate with a large luscious garden including a pond which attracts a variety of birdlife. Kowharewa Bay is accessed by a private track taking just a few minutes to walk or pop over the hill to Pacific Bay, Church Bay, Dolphin Bay and the beautiful white sands of Whangaumu Bay which are only a 2 minute drive away. 

This two storied property with a separate sleepout are decorated modern and comfortably accommodates 8 people in 3 double bedrooms (two rooms each featuring queen beds whilst one bedroom and the sleepout each contain double beds) making it ideal for large or extended families and groups of friends. One of the two bathrooms features a freestanding bath. The master bedroom and ensuite are upstairs while the other 2 bedrooms and open plan dining/living area are downstairs.
The Sanctuary is surrounded by large grassed areas, making it ideal for outside games and perfect for al fresco dining with a BBQ and outside open fire.

Please Note: As the pond is unfenced, adults should closely supervise young children when outside to ensure they are safe around water.

The Tutukaka Marina and Hub is a few minutes drive where you will find cafes, bars, restaurants, petrol and is the gateway to the famous Poor Knights Islands, subtropical wonderland. In the vicinity are also our local surf beach Sandy Bay and Woolleys Bay, Whale Bay and the most popular Matapouri Bay and Mermaid Pools, with numerous coastal walks all over the Tutukaka Coast.

  • Great service :) "Gorgeous place!! We had a wonderful stay at Tutukaka Sanctuary!"

  • Easy communication from the UK with a simple booking system. This property is superb, the photos really don’t do it justice. Our extended family group used the house as our base to visit The Poor Knights islands with Perfect Day. The house was beautifully presented with an extremely well equipped kitchen including large fridge with ice maker and cold water. Lovely gardens with a vast choice of chairs and tables to sit in the sun or shade. I think I counted three umbrellas in the garden as well as the huge shaded veranda area. Watch out for friendly ducks.

  • Great support, thank you. "Beautiful property, spacious with great grounds. Lots of options for dining outside. We'll definitely be back!"

    Milou - Dec, 2017

  • “It is an amazing place, very spacious with comfortable beds & a beautiful large garden & pond. The art work & prints on the walls are a nice touch & the kitchen has plenty of room with lots of implements for cooking. We were a little confused as to how the ice maker in the fridge worked & ran out of ice after some time. But apart from that everything was what was expected & we all had a wonderful stay. It is close to Tutukaka & Ngunguru for shopping & activities with many gorgeous beaches nearby. Bring the kids for the long summer days as it's certainly the place to be for enjoying the sunny outdoors.”
