Tairua is a paradise for outdoor recreation, offering many walking or hiking options, be it coastal, river, farm, forest or bush where remanants of old mining days are present. The forest also offers 4WD, BMX, MotorX and hunting.
The ocean, estuary, harbour and river offers safe swimming, surf swimming, surfing, kite surfing, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, sailing, boating, jet skiing, land sailing, fishing and many fishing charters are also available.
And of course there is Golf (international course in neighbouring Pauanui), Bowls and Tennis which are not far from the property.
Hot Water Beach and Cathedral Cove are a must and only 1/2 an hours drive away.
We have set up our place to maximize what's on offer in the surrounding area if you're keen for adventure. Or, if you're not in the mood to venture off the property, Piwakawaka Palace is more than capable of satisfying you and keeping you occupied. Our time there has never been enough. Activities such as swinging on the sunny hammocks, book and beverage in hand, cradled by bush. Sitting around the outdoor fire on the Vine deck, studying the amazing southern stars. Entertaining is a breeze, long meals on the front deck happen naturally, with sweeping views and quirky Tui song, it's hard to leave the table.
To ensure people respect and look after our house, we require a $500 bond that will be refundable upon a house inspection.
