Tairua Beach House Reviews from the Web

Very nice staff and well run, but overpriced for what you get.


A perfect location with dreamy and endless garden facing to Paku hill


Friendly staff - nice Debbie. Very good price for private room. Friendly atmosphere.


Lovely atmosphere, very chilled and felt like home. Not the most modern place but had great hot showers and comfy wooden bunks - no creaking!!


Facilities were very clean, staff communication was excellent, location was perfect. A group of 6 of us were staying for the weekend and it met all all needs. Would definitely stay again.


Suitable for purpose



Our stay was short as we were only passing through for the night, but we wished we could have stayed longer! If you plan on visiting the Coromandel peninsula, we would definitely recommend this hostel. Easy to locate. Nice small local area. Comfortable and relaxing house. Generous staff. We will be booking again if we are back in this area.


The hostel is a bit out of town but you can walk along the river to the mount and into town. It felt a little bit tired, but its clean and everything works and the owner was very friendly. Honey cafe opposite did very nice coffee.


A nice Backpackers no hassles, staff laid back and friendly, some good advice was being given to some international travellers about things to do in the area and some suggestions about getting to Auckland Airport from the Backpackers


Very noisy during the night with guests walking around and slamming doors. Not the hostels fault, just inconsiderate guests.


Chilled place, Grant was friendly and very welcoming. Lots of outdoor space. Room was comfortable and large enough.


This accommodation was in a great town w easy walk from hostel. Good clean well appointed premises with helpful friendly staff. Good lace to explore the region. Highly recommended.


Very nice and chill! The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Nice property with outdoor hangout space on the deck and several picnic tables. Weather was nice so no one was using the well stocked Rec Room. Car camping area was in the back field. I would have preferred a private room to a dorm, but none were available. The bunk bed was too hard for me. The kitchen and restroom facilities were very clean and I never had to wait to use anything. Walk to the beach or short drive to others.


Absolute gorgeous stay at the House. Welcoming people and Grant, the owner, from the beginning happy to help and advise on anything. Gave me a superb recommendation on how far to travel on the Coromandel.

Super chill vibe on the property with guests and travellers who work nearby.

Enjoyed it much and was very relaxing. Perfect place to explore the Coromandel.


Very friendly each other. Feeling like a festival. The best place for young people. Not so good to have a good sleep with loud noise.


Josephine and her husband have made such a beautiful place to stay. It feels like a home! The small downstairs bathrooms were a bit inconvenient and the kitchen was quite small but the atmosphere and people were lovely.


Tairua beach house is the sweetest hostel I have ever stayed in. The owners, Grant and Josephine are so incredibly kind and create a wonderful home-like feeling at the Hostel. Grant is amazing and will remember your name from the second you meet him, until you check out, and possibly even after. The staff who are working on-site are incredibly fun to be around. They help make all guests feel welcome and safe in the space. We did morning yoga, went for hikes, and shared wonderful meals.


LOVED my stay at Tairua Beach House! Exactly what I did not know I was looking for in this beautiful corner of the world.


The hosts make you feel that this is a home away from home. Very unique and perfect for a group of friends looking to have a good time!


Liked: Doreen was very kind and helpful. Near to the city and Hot Water Beach. You can play Billard and many more. Free Wi-Fi! Didn't like: Things are a little bit old but that doesn't matter.
