Description

  • Enjoy private access from your cottage to the beautiful Pataua North surf beach.
  • Explore a wide range of walking tracks in the Tahi ecological sanctuary.
  • Indulge in the convenience of the Tahi Cafe, offering a wide menu and great coffee.

Stay at Tahi New Zealand in our self-contained beach cottage.

Tara cottage is part of the 340ha Tahi ecological sanctuary, including restored wetlands, lakes and forests. You will have the choice of walking one of the many tracks, swimming from the beautiful white sand surf beach or fishing and kayaking in the estuary. Surfing lessons and standup paddle boards are available locally, along with horse trekking through the property or along the beach.

Encompassing a rich variety of habitats, Tahi is a haven for walkers, birdwatchers and the conservation minded. Dune vegetation on the surf beach gives way to diverse broadleaf forest on the hills further inland, lakes provide habitat for mullet and rare long-finned eels while mangroves and saltmarshes are home to kingfishers, rare fernbirds and banded rails. Tahi is also proud to host a number of endangered bird species including Brown Teal, Bittern and Dotterell.

The on-site Tahi Cafe offers a blackboard menu of delicious breakfast and lunch dishes, great coffee and Kohu Road icecreams. Open Christmas to Waitangi Weekend - 7 days a week.

Special conditions: No dogs please, Tahi is a bird and kiwi sanctuary.

    Tara at Tahi was lovely! A cute old cottage which was immaculate and well renovated whilst preserving its charm. It had everything my husband and baby could need. The cafe was great, we went for a lovely walk around the estate. the beach was beautiful and the estuary only a few minutes drive away. Highly recommended for couples or small families!

    Great cottage - very clean, very nicely decorated and just the right size for our family of 2 adults and 1 child (7 years); well-equipped kitchen and very nice bathroom. Just note there is no washing machine or dishwasher, but this did not pose an issue for us when staying at Tara for 7 days. Good location; close to Pataua's sandy beaches and hardly anyone else there during our stay - easy 5 minute walk through the reserve. Very friendly neighbours: lots of Pukekos welcoming us in the morning.

    The historic cottage itself has so much charm and we loved the way it has been tastefully renovated to provide some basic modern comforts. The perfect place to get away from it all, we only wish we could have stayed longer to fully explore Tahi estate and the cafe too! Thanks
