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 place is quirky as they indicate, but it has lots of upsides. The view and location is fantastic and watching the ebb and flow of the harbour was brilliant. The house has no TV which wasn't an issue for us but may be for some. We used it as a base to explore the coromandel, which was perfect for our needs. We liked the place and the location and was perfect for our needs. Fantastic views out over Pauanui, but although in the town offered very private outlook.

    Breathtaking view! Cosy little nook up on the hill! We enjoyed our weekend get away. It rained about 50% of the time but what better way to spend the weekend, parked up beside the fire looking over the amazing views of Tairua!

    loved it as a winter getaway as even when it's raining and cold outside we could be warm by the fire and enjoy the estuary and bush views. the best shower ever! great location, close to amenities and hidden for privacy, a bbq available for guests would be a plus but definitely will recommend to friends and colleagues and come back.
