Your Host

TE PUIA is a family business

The company is owned by Blair & Jean Saunders and operated by their daughter Hazel Sims. The Saunders family has lived at Hot Water Beach since the 1950s and have been providing holiday accommodation for decades. They annually rent out their family home Te Puia House for the summer season and purposely built Te Puia Lodge to replace the original bach next door in 2003.

Over the years they have learnt a great amount about what holiday-makers need, so you can expect to be well catered for at Te Puia. The house and lodge are well maintained to provide you with all the comforts of home so you can sit back, relax and enjoy your holiday. Hazel lives nearby and is available upon your request if you need assistance.
