Jan is the most welcoming and helpful person you will ever meet! She makes you feel at home and gives you as much guidance as possible. The lodge is very comfortable and at a great location. We had a wonderful couple of nights at the lodge. There's a beautiful beach in walking distance. Small pool. Bbq's. Some small stores and...

We arrived to Pauanui, not really knowing where we were staying as it had been organised by our travel agent. We turned into the drive and the beautiful view greeted us...and it just got better from there. Greeted by the owner, Jan, she proceeded to give us so much useful information about the area and the facilities on site and...

We stayed for only two nights, which was a shame since we really enjoyed both the facilities on site and the relaxed atmosphere of Pauanui itself. The owners are very friendly and helpful people who have been great hosts for us. 10/10 !

We stayed just the one night and wished we could have stayed longer. Jan couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. The rooms were comfy and well equipped. You have access to a pool and two BBQS with the shops a two minute walk away ant the gorgeous beach moments away. Would return and stay again in an instant.

Just one night at the Pines after a wedding in town. Immaculate room. Great hosts. Good local knowledge! Great place if you love plane watching. The local runway is about 100m away. Would have been nice to stay longer.

We spent 3 nights of our 10 day honeymoon at Pauanui Pines and it was our favorite stay of the trip! Our one bedroom unit felt like our own little house and hosts Jan and Garry went out of their way to make us feel welcome. It's a two minute walk from shops, bars, restaurants, and a grocery store and...

This is a great place to stay. Very clean and all the facilities you could want. We had a mini kitchen, ideal for breakfast and lunches. You could even cook dinner if you were keen. The separate bedroom was a pleasant surprise. The beds very comfortable. Spades and advice for your visit to the hot water beach. Plenty of advice...
