You couldn’t ask for better views, and the house is cozy with everything you need. Thank you sharing this special place for others to enjoy.

This holiday house is truly a home away from home. It is well equipped and it is clear that a lot of thought has gone into it not just being “a rental”, eg. the kitchen drawers and cupboards are full of the equipment needed to make meals, and in general there are things there that you may not realise that you need/want when you are away (eg extension lead, candles, games, books etc). Well thought-out. It is comfortably furnished and decorated in such a way that is really charming….the house has such a good “feel” to it. The deck is nice and large, and the view from there (as well as from most of the windows) is superb. We were also lucky enough to have a freshly picked arrangement, and some eggs from the free range hens. These little touches just added to the warmth of the house. The bed was comfortable and there were plenty of extra pillows and blankets, as well as lots of towels etc. The house is located well above the road and you cannot see nor hear any traffic. In fact the only thing that you can hear is an abundance of birdlife and the sound of the sea. The communication I had with the owners was very prompt, comfortable and friendly. I have stayed in dozens and dozens of holiday houses over the years. This home is my favourite…. location…ambience…it has everything! Loved my/our time there.
Response from Owner
WOW! such an awesome review - thank you! so glad you not only found the house had everything you needed but you had a great tsay and enjoyed our special part of the Coast and all it has to offer

Absolutely loved our stay at Tairawhiti. You open the front door and "Wow" the vista in front of you is to die for. Beautiful ocean views all day which are just mesmerising. A great place to just relax and unwind with absolutely no traffic noise. You can lull yourself to sleep with the sea in the background. Such a great relaxed ambience with all you need to be very comfortable. Angie and Bryan are terrific hosts and are available via text or email if you need anything. A real gem! David and I loved our stay and will definitely come back.
