Host Info

Host Review Score 10.0

Paku Palms is located on a hill above Tairua beach and village. The unobstructed panoramic sea views are spectacular. Our Balinese hot tub is in a separate building overlooking the sea and is perfect for a romantic soak with a bottle of bubbly.

Thelma and Warrick are New Zealanders who love the coast and are proud to be able to offer you accommodation in their purpose built guest apartment.

Tairua is a small coastal village on the Coromandel Peninsula. There are a range of cafes, a pub and a local shop. The beach is long with white sand and clear water. We are within easy driving distance of Hot Water Beach, Whitianga and Cathedral Cove
