Description

  • Stunning sea views and sunsets from the deck - warm and cosy - lots of character
  • Surfing, fishing, swimming, walks close by
  • Warm and comfy holiday home with everything you need

Our holiday home backs onto the Paparoa National Park with native bush, Tui, Bellbird and Wood Pidgeons everywhere

Tairawhiti in translation means "the sea where the sun shines across the water" - and that's what you'll,get on fine sunny days....sparkling seas and amazing sunsets.

The house is set amongst the bush on a 50 acre block that was once part of the local gold mining area and full of history .

BBQ on the deck while watching the spectacular surf and the wild Tasman sea and sunsets

This holiday home is a real kiwi Bach, warm and cosy but with everything you'll need for a happy stay.

The log fire heats the entire house if needed and the BBQ can be used wet or fine.

Close by is good swimming, fishing, surfing and bush walks, with green stone fossicking at nearby beaches also.

The old bridge at the Fox River is one of a few left in the south island and is a popular local swimming spot and bridge jumping spot at the right tide.

The Punakaiki pancake rocks, gold panning, caving and more are all close by - brochures for these are in the house....

Owners are usually on site ( further up the hill in their own accomodation to ensure your privacy) and are able to offer local knowledge on places to go etc if requested.

This is a great place to relax, listen to the wild life and kickback for a few days, with the sound of the sea a constant background noise.

Further up the coast, Tauanga Bay, has a great Resturant, coffee and surf spot, with Westport a handy 40 minute drive for supplies

Most Sunday's during the summer a local market is held with local artisans goods ranging from paintings, pottery, silverware, clothing, food, coffee and much more.

Punakaiki pancake rocks are a must see and there is good coffee and cake at the Punakaiki craft shop

The coast road Between Greymouth and Westport was listed by Lonely Planet as one of the top ten coastal drives in the world so we hope to see you soon in our little piece of paradise here at Tairawhiti

  • What a fantastic place - so beautiful and very comfortable

    What a fantastic place - so beautiful and very comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the beautiful sunset one night and sitting in front of the log burner another night. We did accidentally drive past the driveway the first time as we didn't see the sign but other than that, everything went without a hitch. Would definitely recommend!

    Brilliant location, well appointed kitchen and facilities, fabulous views, gorgeous fire which easily kept the home toasty warm, great isolation although within easy drive to main centres.

    This property blew us away! It was even more stunning than the photos (which was no easy feat, as the place looked amazing from the start!). The property was clean, cosy and warm (complete with fully stocked wood burner for the evenings). The view from the balcony was overwhelming - we spent both evenings we were there outside, watching the sunset. We can not recommend this property more for anyone wanting a slice of paradise on the West Coast! We'll definitely be back!
