We loved our stay at the Paua Palace. We biked the Paparoa Track and the house is directly opposite the end of the track!!! You can't get much better than that! It had everything we needed and it has so much character. It was very clean and tidy and Tine is a pleasure to deal with . We would love to come back.
Response from Owner
Thank you Dee for your lovely comment! Great to have you back at the palace and Garden Suite. You certainly made the most out of the long sunny weekend, biked the track, found time to support local business and chill and enjoy the backyard! Chapeau!!! Thank you for leaving everything spotless, welcome back anytime! Tine
I just spent a wonderful 4d/3n in the Garden suite. It was perfect for me. Everything is bright, fresh and inviting. The host, Tine was lovely. There are so many things to do around Punakaiki I was wanting a rain day to do some of the ‘at home’ activities provided. I loved the peaceful garden, the Nikaus, beach sunsets and river walks and just being. I definitely recommend Paua Palace whether you just want to escape for a bit or be more active and walk the Paparoa great walk or anything in between.
Response from Owner
Thank you, Sue, for great feedback! Good to hear that the Garden Suite worked well for your stay. Welcome back anytime! ;-) Tine
We stayed in the garden suite for the weekend. We loved it! Its clean, airy and has a great feel. It is opposite the end of the mountain-biking section of the Paparoa track...perfect! I would definitely stay again...in fact I am!! Already booked!
Response from Owner
Thanks Dee, for taking the time to post a comment. Glad it all worked out well for you and your friends, walking the track and staying nearby. And you're coming back for more action in February, that's great! Remember, there is a BBQ available now. See you then, Tine
