  • We loved this little gem of a Bach

    We loved this little gem of a Bach. It is located near the top of Mount Paku which offers, in my opinion, one of the best views in the whole of New Zealand after a shirt walk to the top. The bach was incredibly well finished and presented and was perfect for our family of four. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom was spotless and the outdoor facilities were also lovely. We have just returned to the UK but the few days we stayed in Tairua were highlight of our stay. Thanks Donna.

  • A little safe haven, in such an idyllic, tranquil setting

    A little safe haven, in such an idyllic, tranquil setting. We loved our stay at The Little Shed, it was so peaceful there. Its furnished and decorated in such a way it would make any who stay there feel immediately at home and relaxed. The location was amazing, within a stones throw of the summit lookout with stunning views of both Tairua and Pauanui. Then of course the absolutely beautiful sandy beach at the base of the hill. I would recommend this place to anyone I know!

  • A wonderful place to stay! The Little Shed had everything we needed...

    A wonderful place to stay! The Little Shed had everything we needed and more. Very well thoughtout and clean. Well catered for our 6yr old son too. Location is fantastic, only seconds away from the Paku Summit walkway to some beautiful views. A very relaxing getaway! Donna, Matt & Zanda helped make our family holiday so much more special with their kindness and great hospitality. We cant wait to return again, the Little is on our yearly holiday plan thats for sure.
