This clean lodge in the town of Tairua New Zealand had a friendly proprietor who lent us shovels to enjoy nearby Hot Sand Beach. We swam in the water just below the lodge and we used their kayaks to explore the estuary, and their bikes to ride into town for breakfast. One evening we hiked up Mount Paku behind the lodge and were thrilled to see a pair of Morepork owls.

We had room number 1 and it had awesome views of the water. The room was comfortable, clean, modern with a fully equipped kitchenette. Magazines in the rooms were a nice little touch.
Wifi advertised is NOT FREE but you need to pay for it.

If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of city and work,this place is tops!
Waterfront, (safe swimming at your doorstep) 180degree views to surrounding hills and beaches and superb accommodation all clean and fresh with tastefully decorated units in a nautical theme. The cyprus tree restaurant (fine dining, not BYO) is 3 mins walk on the wharf and serves quality Italian/European meals. Ocean beach is 5 mins stroll around the corner. Take a ferry ride across the harbour,,,,,,,BBQ useage complimentary.....free parking on site......What more could you ask for?

Room Tip: Unit 1, studio unit at front has it's own access and balcony, a little bit more expensive than r...

My husband and I stayed one night in the Paku Lodge Motel, Tairua, recently - Our Unit 3 was looking out over the Tairua harbour - an amazing view. The unit was roomy and well designed and maintained. The deck was spacious and the driveway is rather steep but well maintained and concreted. Car Park was out from the back door on ground level- very convenient.
Host was friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay - will visit again when travelling in the area. We ate at local restaurants - a positive experience.
