Seaspray Motel

Visiting New Zealand? 

Seaspray Motel have a great location to start or end your New Zealand adventure.  Only one hour fifteen minutes drive time from Auckland International Airport. Are you looking for a break on the Coromandel?  We are the ideal base for exploring the Peninsula.  The Seaspray Motel is only an hour and a half from Auckland, Hamilton and Tauranga yet it's a world away from city life.   Relax and unwind at our small retro 60's motel right on the water.  Enjoy the beach, get out on the water or fish from the garden's edge.  Collect some driftwood from the beach for the BBQ.  Go for a bushwalk.  There's even a glowworm cave.  At the end of your day you can light the BBQ, relax in the garden or on your deck, with a cold beer or wine and watch the sun sink into the sea.   We are located a scenic 15 minute drive north of Thames on the coast road (SH25).  Waiomu Bay is a small beachside community with a cafe, boatramp, sandy beach reserve and childrens playground.  There is a cafe in the bay and within a 5 minute drive an old fashioned pub with restaurant and 2 general stores with takeaways.    Our small 6 unit motel (4 x 1 bedroom, 1 x 2 bedroom and a studio unit) are all fully furnished and equipped to give you a comfortable stay.  Each unit has it's own deck with unobstructed seaviews.  Continental and cooked breakfasts as well as real espresso coffes are available.  Free wi fi is available.    Inspection welcome.  Your hosts John and Katherine look forward to seeing you.
