The perfect getaway for couples who like to enjoy some privacy in quiet surroundings but still close to all activities.

Paku Escape is a modern one bedroom bach with spectacular views out towards Pauanui and Tairua, the Pacific Ocean and the tranquil Tairua harbour.

With its spacious open-plan living area and kitchen corner that leads out onto a sunny deck, a roomy double bedroom upstairs, it has all the essentials you need for a fantastic Holiday.

The pull out sofa makes a double bed with a futon mattress for a third person or another couple if required.

Nestled against the side of Paku, this property is quiet and secluded, yet so close to all Tairua has to offer. It's just a 5 minute walk to the beach and nearby restaurants or a 15 minute walk to the shops. Hot Water Beach and Cathedral Cove are only a 20 minute drive away.

This is the perfect spot for the well deserved getaway. Go fishing, diving, kajaking, swim in the safe harbor or surf the waves at Tairua beach. Walk up Paku, Mt. Pauanui or climb the Pinnacles. Alternatively simply enjoy the spectacular views, the colorful sunsets, the sound of the birds and the whoosh of the waves. Put up your hammock under the trees and relax.

Paku Escape is perfect for couples looking for privacy.

  • Very nice and romantic couples retreat

    Very nice and romantic couples retreat. As noted on the website previously- access and parking difficult. Electrical circuits in bathroom and kitchen could do with upgrade/improvement - but overall would definitely consider staying there again.

    We had a great time in Tairua, with a big part of the experience being our stay at Paku Escape. The location is quiet, private, a short drive from central Tairua and has amazing views, especially as the sun sets!! The property is comfortable, well equipped and affordable. We look forward to our next stay!

    Hi helenohowrd, thank you for your feedback on the driveway, we are aware it is a little steep and that it can be difficult to drive in. We are adding a note against the listing to advise future guests this is the case!

  • Great location but Bach is dirty

    Great location but Bach is dirty. Shower sink toilet a bit yuck and kitchen cooking facilities poor. Bed uncomfortable no reading lamp or bed side table, covers falling off window seat bbq unusable as right side so rusted, no gas in bbq though our Bach care person got some for us and a sink plug. Place needs better furniture as couch bed no good to sit or lie on.

    Thank you for your feedback. This property is a classic kiwi bach which the photos & price reflect, and as below we have not had any negative feedback about the facilities in the past. We have talked with the holiday manager about the cleanliness of the property and will ensure that more thorough cleans and checks are done of the property after each stay. We're glad you enjoyed the beautiful location!
