Beautiful and characterful yert and house truck.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and characterful yert and house truck. Wonderful spaces to be in. Location is superb, relaxing and private, surrounded by trees, not called a retreat for nothing. Lovely picturesque drive to town and the whole of Golden Bay easily accessible. Swimming hole is world class: a swim in a limestone river is the best treatment for anything! Wonderful hosts. Grateful for our time there, very highly recommended and will try to get there again ourselves one day.

Very nice location and property, A yurt and a car . Lots of space in it. only the way to the property is not the easiest. But for us it was a very good place to stay.

We absolutely loved our stay at Te Paamu.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Te Paamu. The whole property was delightful, so full of character and charm and so incredibly clean and well appointed. Our daughter loved having the house truck as her own private space, and the yurt was an absolute delight. The surroundings were gorgeous and while the owners lived just up the hill we felt very private. The orchard and the vege garden were fabulous and the river swimming hole was absolutely incredible. Loved it all!

The Yurt and House Truck provided a unique, peaceful and tranquil setting. The accommodation is extremely well maintained and beautifully presented, and our family loved our stay. We would highly recommend this as a relaxing destination.
