Sunny 2 bedroomed property located on top of Paku hill in Tairua. Stunning views looking out onto Ocean beach and surrounding Tairua.

Tairua has an awesome surf beach as well as an estuary which is safe enough for kids to swim in with a playground in front and you can watch the kids with a coffee from the local cafe in hand. You can also row/ kayak over to Pauanui from here. Alternatively, catch the ferry over there.

Tairua also has a Supermarket, visitors centre, a number of cafe's (check out Linda and Jimmy at the Old Mill Cafe a short walk down the hill, serving the best cakes and coffee- they are by the boat ramp and Kayak and Dive hire shop), options to eat out at night, a golf course, beauty parlour, DVD hire shop (please bring your laptop if you want to do this as we don't have a TV/ DVD at the bach), a modern library.
