We stayed in a one bedroom unit with a large sundeck and a beautiful view of the harbour. The unit was clean and comfortable with an excellent bed and pillows. The unit was well equipped with basic cooking facilities and a dishwasher. There was a large a barbecue to share with the unit next door. On the deck we had a barbecue table plus a small table and 2 deck chairs.
We were going to eat out but the view was so beautiful that we ate on our deck every night of the three nights we were there.
The location is excellent- across the road from the harbour and the opportunity to swim or kayak in one of the motel's kayaks. it is a close walk to the marina or the ocean beach. There are a couple of cafes a gentle stroll away. The motel has bikes if you want to go further and the hosts have plenty of local knowledge to share about the best places or activities. We enjoyed a walk up Paku Mountain for an amazing view. (If you want a good work out, walk the whole way; if not, drive up to the car park and take the shorter version. It requires a bit of a scramble to get up the last few metres but the view is worth it). Tairua is a wonderful location for visiting many of the beautiful beaches and attractions on the Coromandel Peninsula.
