As advertised, a nice little bach for a great price and perfect location. The grounds were pretty with a bed of birds of paradise right outside our door. Wish we'd been able to stay longer. Our host was very friendly and gave us information on local things to do. Hello to Rudy!

A comfortable, well appointed, well positioned and extremely well priced facility. Outstanding customer service throughout, a very personal and helpful proprietor. The public relations officer "Brodie" was the icing on the cake for us. Would highly recommend, a place we would definately return to for sure.

Very Clean and comfortable 2 bedroom family unit (No. 8) with water views. Close to town within walking distance. Our hosts, Paul & Tash, could not have been more helpful with local advice on things to do and see. Yet another great stay with great people can't wait to be back again next year.

We booked two nights at the blue water motel and thoroughly enjoyed the motel, the charming host, Paul, & our stay in Tairua - lovely kiwi beach town. The room was comfy, absolutely spotless & with everything we needed. All Tairua needs now is a decent place to eat!!
