This motel is in a brilliant position with a safe beach for children right across the road and a short walk up the road makes for easy access to yet another beach (Ocean Beach) - this one great for surfing, boogie boards etc - saw many fishing later in the evening as well . Paddle boards and kayaks provided free... More

We spent 2 nights in unit 10 (1 bed apartment) and loved every minute. Beautiful views, right next to a super little quiet beach and free kayaks/bikes too. Apartments really comfortable and well equipped. Hosts very helpful and welcoming. Rooms very clean. Would highly recommend.

We booked online and on arrival were upgraded to unit nine a one bedroom apartment. A stunning 180 degree view of Tairua harbour. The hosts were amazing and informed us that they had kayaks, paddle boards, fishing rods and bikes for use free of charge. There were free BBQ'S and the rooms were spotless. Town was only a five minute... More

We had studio 5, ground level, next the small service road and the beach. We had two patios, 1 facing the beach and one facing N. The accommodation was spotless and fresh, and the kitchen/diner was fully equipped. Our hosts offered great hospitality. We loved it and would recommend for a beachy laid back stay. The views across the water... More

Stayed for 5 nights, with hubbie fishing , whilst I explored the Coromandel area each day. Lovely studio apartment with views across Tairua. Helpful friendly managers. Had everything we needed. Great places to eat nearby.

Stayed in unit no 8 which is perched on top of the hill with nice view of the river. The location is nice, serene and quiet. The unit comes with a living, a bedroom and kitchen; all nice and tidy. Don't expect too much amenities nearby: The kind of place for a sojourn and quiet reflections.

We booked in via the Information Centre and were pleasantly surprised to arrive at The Paku Lodge. We checked in and were allocated unit 2, only to find there was only a queen bed in the delightfully airy unit with a magnificent view of the bay. Regrettably we needed a twin room. Trevor offered us a suite at a reduced... More

Nice quiet place, warm and helpful welcome from managers, large light-coloured clean and comfortable studios offering a great view on the estuary. Central place to stay in the eastern Coromandel area. Excellent value for money. Highly recommended.

I value Trip Advisor and we use it lots to guide our decisions about where to go,what to do when we travel. Again in choosing this spot I used Trip Advisor. Normally, we would book on line,occasionally email or call. I called Paku Lodge as we had a small boat and I needed to be assured that there was parking... More

A lovely, refreshing stay in a comfortable motel with great views of Tairua harbour. Very close to Mt Paku which has spectacular views over Pauanui and the Tairua estuary. At high tide, we enjoyed kayaking up the river quite some distance - take binoculars for better views of the birds! A very quiet place to stay. Kitchen well-equipped, though if... More
