Blue Water Motel Review

These bright and cheery colourful units are at the southern end of Tairua, across the street from a small sandy beach. Each unit mimics a simple beach cottage, some with a deck overlooking the harbor. In the true spirit of a seaside holiday town, guests are welcome to use kayaks, fishing rods, and craypots, all complimenatry, along with advice about the best spots to take them! Rates vary depending on time of year, also depending on the standard of unit.
