This was my favourite holiday home that we stayed in during the whole of our South Island trip! The location is just AWESOME! The house is nestled in the native bush with superb views over the ocean both up and down the coast! The deck was a cool place to spend time relaxing listening to the waves crashing below and watching the native birds flying through the bush! The house was well equipped, with cool coastal decor and very comfy beds! The whole house and property just had a very cool feel to it! It’s in a very good location close to beautiful river valley walks, the Fox river Sunday market and of course the Punakaiki pancake rocks and cafe! Just make sure you bring enough provisions to last your stay as it’s a fairly long drive to a supermarket! I couldn’t recommend this place highly enough! Thank you Angie ! We loved our time at Tairawhiti!
Response from Owner
thank you so much for your glowing review! we love our little piece of paradise and are so happy you had a great time here and enjoyed all it has to offer....also a big thanks for leaving the house so tidy on departure...apologies for the light bulb failing for you - all fixed now.... hope to see you again sometime cheers Angie
Thank you Angie and Bryon for sharing your wee piece of Paradise. The house has a beautiful Rustic Charm, with everything we needed. Best 3 nights sleep in a long time. The view and the sound of the Sea is pure magic. The house was immaculate and extremely comfortable. Perfect and very Safe for our Furbaby to enjoy. Fun watching his face when he saw free roaming chickens for the first time. Memories of sitting on the deck watching to Ocean will bring us back again. Cheers Kerry and Robert Wall

Such a beautiful location, you wake up to the sound of the sea, and the deck is just lovely to have breakfast on while watching the waves roll in and searching for dolphins. Safe swimming and a lovely walk up the Fox river on the Inland Pack Track, we also tried fishing and surfing there, it was great to be so close to the river and walks. Also the coffee cart “Rusty Cup” owner should be a stand up comedian! The house was lovely, we went there with our two kids but we could’ve easily fit another young family in there. Kitchen had everything we needed, and the house was beautifully decorated yet comfortable and safe for small clumsy kids! Angie and Bryan were so welcoming and relaxed about everything, making it a wonderful week for us.
