Welcome to Atea Lodge

Set 122 metres above sea level on the side of the Tokatea mountain range this stunning Lodge sits among 2.4 hectares of lush native bush. Spectacular views out to Waiheke Island, Te Kouma harbour and beyond create an ambience of serenity and ever changing vistas.
Only five minutes from the quaint historical town of Coromandel, Atea Lodge provides boutique accommodation for the discerning traveller.
Recently renovated to a meticulous level, the purpose built three room Lodge is separate from the hosts accommodation and boasts an expansive Queenslander style covered deck to enjoy the panoramic view – rain or shine.
Wander down to the unique wooden beamed Guest Lounge to enjoy a book or play on the full sized billiard table.  On a sunny day relax on a seat in the bush-lined garden overlooking the large pond and watch the Fantails and Tui’s play.

Automatic closing gates ensure your security and peace of mind – closing the world out for you to relax and enjoy your time with us.
Ample parking is provided.
The panoramic clear views and open space embraces the name Atea. On a clear night the stars are incredible.
Enjoy a complimentary beer wine or juice on arrival. Home baking to accompany your tea or espresso coffee.

Your hosts Lynn and Kelvin Snell look forward to welcoming you to their very special piece of the Coromandel and ensuring your stay is one to remember.


Breakfast is served in the dining room or on the covered decks. We provide continental or cooked breakfast or a combination of the two – whatever your preference. Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements. Continental breakfast consists of juices, selection of teas and expresso coffee, home made natural muesli and cereals, fresh fruits, yoghurt and a selection of warm bakery. Choose a full cooked breakfast with free range eggs cooked to your liking or warm vanilla porridge with maple syrup and seasonal fruit.

Guest Lounge

Relax in our guest lounge on the comfortable sofa with a book or board game – or play a game of pool or snooker on the full sized table. Tea and coffee facilities are available.


Stroll around the property, past beautiful rock walls and gardens to the large pond where you can have a seat and enjoy the serenity among native flora and fauna.
