We had three nights here. The gravel driveway populated by cows masks the gorgeous quality of the villas as you reach the top of the hill. We stayed in the highest of three villas, each with there own large yard. Three roomy clean bedrooms are...More

We stayed here for 2 nights in early January. There was a bottle of wine left for us in the fridge and Christmas card/new year card too. The location has the most wonderful views of the sea, and it is very quiet. There are two...More

Located in New Zealand's beautiful Coromandel Peninsula, Mercury Villas offers luxury accommodation having recently been completed in November 2013.The two villas are built on a privately owned 37 hectare More farm, with spectacular views of Great Barrier, Cuvier and Great Mercury Islands and surrounding Kuaotunu farmland and beaches. Cattle are kept on the property, fenced safely away from the villas, and you will no doubt spot the wild turkeys that also roam around. Each villa is completely self contained, and can be booked separately or together depending on the size of your group.Getting here via Car (recommended):Best way is to use Google Maps/GPS to find us. If you don't have GPS, we are 2.5 hours drive from Auckland (drive south on SH1, turn onto SH2 toward Coromandel, once over the Kopu bridge turn right toward Whitianga then go through Whitianga, 20 minutes later you will be in Kuaotunu. Once you pass through the 50 zone in Kuaotunu, then the 70 zone, and then the 100 zone again, we will be just up the hill. When you see Peebles Lane, count 30 seconds and we will be the driveway on the right! Less
