“Agréable couple parlant français qui nous on réservé un chaleureux accueil et avec qui nous avons pu échanger facilement et régulièrement. Maison pleine de charme, au calme dans la verdure, nichée dans la colline. Petit village charmant avec pleins d\'activités autour : nautiques, équitations, plages avec barbecue, aire de jeux pour les enfants... Magnifique région à découvrir. Echange parfait”
Susan's reviewsAs a host (2)
“Tairua was our first exchange ever and we loved it .Tairua is perfectly located in the Coromandel Peninsula.We enjoyed every minute of our stay in Susan and John\'s beautiful comfortable historic wooden house overlooking the Estuary. . Below the house we could swim when the tide was high. Susan and John welcomed us with a lovely meal which gave us the opportunity to get to know each other better.We really loved the house ,especially our breakfasts on the deck covered with grapes and Susan \'s art room where she had kindly prepared paint and brushes for me to paint tentatively. We enjoyed our boat ride to Paunaui ,on the other side of the estuary where the beautiful beaches spread endlessly.Mount Paku,the extinct volcano is also worth the climb as the view from there is stunning. From Tairua it is easy to reach the North of the Peninsula and discover the pioneer\'s town of Coromandel, and Cook\'s bay , and the amazing Hot Springs in Hot Water Beach and the wine country etc..Wonderful memories .We were very happy to welcome Susan when she came over to Brittany.It has been a very successful exchange.”
Where is it?
Situated on an estuary with swimming just across the road or nearby. Surf beach is 5 minutes away. Tairua is a small village on the Coromandel Peninsula, an area of exceptional natural beauty, known for its forested hills and pure white beaches. All water sports, hot pools, golf, fishing and hiking are available. Local restaurants and markets specialize in regional produce. Local transport is limited to buses, so best to have a car.
An easy 2 hour drive from Auckland city. New Zealand's major city, and its international airport. Also a 2 hour drive from Rotorua, with its thermal attractions and Maori culture. Winter skiing is a 3.5 hour drive away.
