"Twin Pahootz (formerly Twin Palms) the cost-effective alternative to holiday parks including your own private facilities (no sharing bathrooms.)

Be as active or inactive as you like with fishing, diving and swimming. Watch the kids play on the section or the adjacent reserve and enjoy super easy access to all activities on offer at Tauranga Bay beach and estuary.

Just pitch your tent, or pull up your caravan and plug into one of the three carvan power outlets, to start your relaxing getaway in this sunny and appealing spot. For nature lovers, dotterels nest in the dunes of the pristine beach.

Cook dinner on the BBQ, clean up in the kitchen in the studio shed or for a respite from the beach and the water-filled fun, play games with the kids or just lounge like lizards on the couches with a good book.

Without tent or caravan and want a quick couple's or family weekend getaway? Pitch a pup tent for the kids and parents can sleep on the futon. Bring the boat. Put in at at full-tide on the estuary 20 metres away. Everything is too convenient!

Or sleep in your tent or camper (or two people on the futon BYO duvet) and do everything else in the open plan studio shed - all cooking, washing up and essential activities catered for here.

The section has it's own shower room and a separate flush toilet and is fully fenced so straying children can be kept under your wings.

Minimum stay is two nights - perfect for a quick weekend fishing or beach getaway. Arrive home fully refreshed from this relaxing and affordable retreat.

An extra charge of $10 per person per night applies for any more than six people with a maximum of ten people.

Winter-time long-term stays to be negotiated, roughly $40 per night plus power is a useful guide. Minimum one month stay period applies for this rate. Just use the "Ask a Question" to enquire about this option.

  • Perfect location for families

    Perfect location for families. Property is fully fenced so was great with our 16month old we felt at ease and knew he was safe. Estuary was perfect for heading out into the bay with our paddleboards & Kayaks. With lots more exploring to do we will be back!

    Great, spacious, beautiful section, heaps of room for the tent and boat. Mature trees provide lots of shade. Kitchen / dining area much bigger than thought. Wonderful relaxing holiday!

    Fenced section so great for kids and dogs, beautiful location very handy to the beach but also felt quite private being tucked away down the side of the beach. Would go back.
