The Tree House (Te whare rakau)

A classic kiwi bach nestled among the tree tops, overlooking the Tairua Harbour, Pauanui, and out to sea towards Shoe and Slipper Islands.

Wake to the morning sun streaming in and the song of tui and bellbird. Listen to the call of the morepork and kiwi at night. A sense of peace and seclusion, only a 10-minute walk from the town, or a couple of minutes in the car.

Comfortable but casual, sunny, fully furnished. Two bedrooms – including a mezzanine and a bunk room with a secret door. WARNING the secret doorway can be challenging to adults, halflings will be fine.

Tairua is a great holiday spot. Swim in the protected harbour, or on the ocean beach. Hire a kayak and explore the harbour and estuary. Fish in the harbour, surf cast off the beach, or take a fishing charter. Check out the local bush walks – kauri groves, old mines and caves to explore (maps and information at the bach).

Tairua is ideally located for day trips – close to Hot Water Beach, Cathedral Cove and Sailor’s Grave. A regular ferry service runs across the harbour to Pauanui.

Try out the excellent cuisine offered at local cafés and restaurants.

The town is well serviced with a supermarket, a chemist, a hardware store, cafés and restaurants, and is a Telecom hot spot – free wireless internet in the town centre. Visitors are welcome at the local golf course.

For those wet days, DVDs are available locally – bring your computer to watch them – there is no TV.

Special conditions: Families preferred, having said that the property doesn't meet current building compliance standards regarding safety for children. There is no bannister on the internal stairs, the balcony railing on the deck isn't a metre high and the mezzanine floor balustrade is not officially childproof. The photos I think show these ‘hazards’. However, our children have all delighted in the place! Especially the secret passageway to the bunk-room.

    The views from the deck over the water to Pauanui and the sea beyond would be difficult to better. The house was clean and adequately furnished and the bed was very comfortable. An ideal jumping-off location for exploring The Coromandel.
