About the property

Bach or holiday home, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 5)

Minimum stay 4 nights (shorter stays may be possible if we have back to back bookings - please enquire.) Come and relax in our peaceful and private paradise. Sit in the garden on the 'Flintstone' deck with mountain and valley views, listening to tui and bellbirds or walk the stunning forest loop track to the river...

A beautiful hand-crafted 7m diameter yurt and a restored vintage housetruck are both stylish and comfortable

Both accommodations are unique in their appeal, funky, handmade and memorable, linked together with a rustic slabbed wooden deck and small detached bathroom.

The 15 acre organic surrounds have various friendly animals, a short (700m) downhill mountain bike track, swings and swimming hole. In season help yourself to fruit from the orchards, and fresh greens from the wee garden.

Takaka town is a short and scenic 12 minute drive, with the array of beaches just beyond

Special conditions:

Smoking in outside areas only.

Toilet is a composting toilet (no maintenance or management needed!).

May not suit elderly, very young or disabled persons as some stairs in the truck, undulating deck surface, and outside bathroom.

Owners have an old friendly collie dog who may come to say hello!

We love Te Paamu - so unique and full of character and yet also really well appointed.

We love Te Paamu - so unique and full of character and yet also really well appointed. The yurt and the house truck were both super-comfortable and beautifully presented and the surrounding decking and garden made for an enchanting environment to relax in. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Te Paamu to anyone who is wanting a fabulous place to stay in Golden Bay

Te Paamu was a really special, and out of the ordinary, place to stay :-) The location is gorgeous, and we highly recommend taking the path down to the river to jump of the rope swing!

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.
