“Absolutely incredibly romantic spot with wonderful views and great walks up Mount Paku and down to Tiarua .”
Just loved the location and the walks and adored the Bach. BUT NEEDED A BACH MANUAL to EXPLAIN ... 1/ Location of lounge light switches = in laundry behind a curtain .. no lights at dinner on first night !! Never thought to look there ! 2/ Shower was cold til last day WHEN we realised we had to check the " trip switches " orange one was down .. Brrrr! ... FREEZING COLD showers for 4 days . 3/ Location of a heater ??? 4/ Is there a WIFI CODE ?? ( if any ! ) Maintenance and Cleaning .... Substandard considering we paid $100 exit cleaning fee . 1/ Cobwebs and Ants everywhere 2/ Bulb in big lamp in lounge broken ... we took one out of ceiling as thought those lights were broken as couldn't locate lounge light switches ( in laundry) 3/ Toaster broken and cockroach jumped out of it AND no toilet roll .One would have been nice until we went shopping . But if all the above was fixed and the place cleaned properly with a working hot shower ... WE WOULD DEFINITELY STAY AGAIN as just loved the bach and the location was perfect .... And the views to die for !! THANK YOU .- Avril, April 2023

Would happily return for another break!- George, November 2022
“Two storey batch type house on the hill South/West facing with nice views over the estray and afternoon/evening sun.”
Outside deck downstairs and large window seat in upstairs bedroom. Very private with comfortable bed, nice as a couples retreat. Driveway not for the fainthearted as very steep and narrow but possible to turn car on bottom.- Chris, April 2022
“Lovely private escape with a fantastic view”- Mitchell, March 2022
“Paku escape is beautiful, just like the ad.”
But the beds are hard and the shower weak. We found the driveway ok if you reversed down. Take mosquito spray.- Lawrence, April 2021
Thanks for your feedback and we are sorry to hear you found the beds hard. Bed firmness is a subjective opinion and what you may find hard may be 'just right' for another guest. Water pressure is often an issue for properties reliant on tank water, but we will pass on your comments to the owner. Bachcare

“It is as it says a simple stay - take a fan with you - bedroom has lovey views ...”
It is as it says a simple stay - take a fan with you - bedroom has lovey views but gets very hot, do not take a low car - the driveway is steep with very little room to turn around, lovely if you are a couple that just want to get away from it all and hide away- kerri-anne, January 2020
Thanks for your review Kerri-Anne. It has been a very hot summer, and while we cannot control the weather we do always clearly set out whether a property has AC on the Amenities list. We really apprecate your valuable feedback, it helps future guests select their happy place! We'd love to welcome you back in the future. Bachcare
“Lovely comfortable house with fantastic views Basic amenities but still recommend for a relaxing stay”- Sally, January 2020
“A gem of a bach on the Coromandel - we loved our stay.”
Comfortable, well maintained, and very tidy. Facilities are simple (as advertised) but exceeded our expectations with some nice touches and more than enough for cooking stovetop meals. The upstairs room is stunning with views across the harbour to distant hills, and wonderful stargazing at night. Loved the birds in the native trees around the house. We look forward to returning!- Brian, November 2019

The birds and bush setting. The views over the water are stunning.- Corrinne, November 2019

The perfect getaway for couples who like to enjoy some privacy in quiet surroundings but still close to all activities. Paku Escape is a modern one bedroom bach with spectacular views out towards Pauanui and Tairua, the Pacific Ocean and the tranquil Tairua harbour. With its spacious open-plan living area and kitchen corner that leads out onto a sunny deck, a roomy double bedroom upstairs, it has all the essentials you need for a fantastic Holiday. The pull out sofa makes a double bed with a futon mattress for a third person or another couple if required. Nestled against the side of Paku, this property is quiet and secluded, yet so close to all Tairua has to offer. It's just a 5 minute walk to the beach and nearby restaurants or a 15 minute walk to the shops. Hot Water Beach and Cathedral Cove are only a 20 minute drive away. This is the perfect spot for the well deserved getaway. Go fishing, diving, kajaking, swim in the safe harbor or surf the waves at Tairua beach. Walk up Paku, Mt. Pauanui or climb the Pinnacles. Alternatively simply enjoy the spectacular views, the colorful sunsets, the sound of the birds and the whoosh of the waves. Put up your hammock under the trees and relax. Paku Escape is perfect for couples looking for privacy. However, it is not suitable for small children or guests with mobility issues as there is no handrail on the stairs up to the bedroom and there is no railing on the deck.

All guests should take care when using the stairs as they do not have a barrier to prevent falls.
Please note that the driveway is very steep, so extra care is needed when accessing the property.
There are no curtains on the main bedroom window. There is full privacy and great views allowing morning sunlight to flood the room.
Please note a bond may be charged at certain times of the year. One of our team members will contact you if this is required for your booking.
