Pāua Palace is a cute retro slice of West Coast paradise at lovely Punakaiki. It’s a great, quirky and well located place to stay. Thanks for the opportunity to hang out at your place and for great service.

A lovely clean, characterful house. The host is very thoughtful and helpful. Everything was as advertised. A fantastic location as the Pancake Rocks are so worth a visit. Our group had an enjoyable stay.
Response from Owner
Thank you Jo for taking the time to post feedback, much appreciated. Good on you & your team for competing in the Spring Challenge, and for choosing the Paua Palace as your base. Everything was left very clean and tidy, welcome back anytime! Cheers, Tine

If you want to feel special and stay somewhere interesting, this is the holiday house for you. The Paua Palace is a unique experience with all the amenities you could ever wish for. Enjoy your time- you’ll never forget it 🔥❤️
Response from Owner
Thank you Caroline, for taking the time to post a comment. Your high praise is much appreciated, especially as a guest staying in winter! Of course, it's sunny here when Christchurch is wet and grey, look for the green flash when the sun sets! Westland petrels flying to their burrows, sometimes directly above the house. The log burner keeps it nice and warm inside, and the outdoor bath is always a winner. I'm glad the palace delivered on all accounts :-) Welcome back anytime! Cheers, Tine
