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. The surf shop in the marina complex hires out kayak, paddle boarding and snorkelling gear.

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, and a modern library. These facilities are only a few minutes drive away from the bach. The bach is also centrally located, half an hour drive from Whangamata, Paunaui, Hot Water Beach, Cathedral Cove, Whitianga and Thames.

Sleeps upto 6, (main bedroom has a queen bed, the second bedroom has a Queen bunk with a single on top. The open plan lounge has a large U-shaped sofa you can use). Children welcome, however please note that we don’t have a gate at the top of the stairs. Kitchen has been fully renovated and has modern appliances, including a dishwasher. Also has BBQ, stereo and a gas/electric heater for the cooler months and a fan for those hot summer days

    Property was filthy, oven had not been cleaned in many months, kitchen drawers dirty. Bathroom & Children's bedroom had black mould. Bathroom is in need of repair. Some doors and windows could not be opened as they were broken. View is great but the property needs attention.

    Owner/manager responds:

    I would request people to look at our other feedback. Please note that this is a bach. The oven was thoroughly cleaned a few weeks previously and has had normal use over the holiday period. The mould was on a few tiles at floor level, which will be cleaned. Our cleaner found that after this guest and her party left, the latch to the front door was broken (no issues with this prior to their stay) and I was not notified of this by the guests. This has since been fixed and we have a new lock.

    The furnishings are rather dated and unpleasant looking. The view is good though.

    We have some retro furniture and I'm sorry it was not to your taste.
