Tairua Backpackers villa overlooks the Tairua harbour and offers free canoes, windsurfers and fishing gear. 

Set in tropical feel gardens, with fruit trees  and friendly chickens. Plenty of outdoor areas to sunbath,  read and relax on hammocks under the trees  or on the deck.

Many of the rooms have sea views. The dormitory has a beautiful view of Mount Paku, you can watch the sunrise over the water from your bed or the deck.  All the beds have duvets. The private rooms are made up with  electric blankets for the winter.

There are doubles, ensuite, twins, triples, quads and a sun-drenched dormitory. A short 150 metre walk across the bridge to the shops,  restaurants, and information centre, or use the free ‘around town’bikes to pedal  5 minutes to the ocean surf beach.

Climbing Mount Paku is a must, the view is spectacular and according to Maori legend you are destined to return within seven years. The office has maps and good knowledge of walking tracks in the area.

Cook outdoors on the bbq’s, the kitchen is compact but well equipped.
