Awesome chalet style accommodation that was tastefully decorated with a private courtyard. parking right outside the door and the water is only a 5 minute stroll with outstanding views. The room was very spacious and included a sofa, table and chairs and coffee table. The shower had awesome pressure but as someone else has already mentioned, there is no where... More

We booked this accommodation based on Trip Advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. We had a lovely chalet style room which was much bigger than a regular motel room. It had a reasonable sized bathroom, a kitchenette, a dining table, sofa, big comfortable bed and a lovely outdoor courtyard. We stayed only a night but it would have been great... More

The accommodation is in an off-set line of chalets which are quite picturesque. Decor inside is nicely done and while the amenities are basic they are certainly what is needed. Each chalet has a small courtyard which we did not get to use but which would be perfect during summer. You can park by the door making getting bags in... More

Beautiful compact garden chalet with ranch slider to an enclosed garden with outdoor seating. Quiet and secluded. Pleasant surprise after the drive over the hill in the rain. Very friendly and helpful and free wifi. Thanks!

We planned our trip in advance to the Coromandel but weather did not cooperate. The room was warm, clean, and dry - perfect to hideaway from the gusty winds and rain. We chose to stay another night to wait out the weather. The owners were very friendly and helpful.

What a really lovely beautiful place!! Everything was spotlessly clean and a very quiet area. We stayed for 3 nights and really explored the area. The climb up Mt Paku is excellent to do. The room was within walking distance of town too. The bedroom was really lovely, would love that in my own home!!

Well situated. About 20 minutes from all major spots in the area (whitianga, hotwater beach, whangamata etc). Very quiet and we felt safe. Tairua is a sleepy little town with good character. Nice fush n chups in the main town. Walking distance from this motel.
