A detached private kiwi "sleep out" set in our spacious gardens!
Nestled between the Abel Tasman National Park and the Kahurangi National Park, we are located only 5 minutes walk from the sea, and 5 minutes drive from the quirky little town of Takaka.
Our sleep out is basic, however is is clean and cosy and has everything you need to make your stay with us comfortable. The cabin has electricity along with two single freshly made beds, a toilet, a wardrobe and even a piano!
We are a great base to come home to, for those who want to relax in peace and quiet after exploring our beautifully unspoilt region. Walking on the beach, tramping in the National Parks (Abel Tasman Coastal Track and Heaphy Track), sea kayaking, scenic flights, surfing, fishing, horse riding and wildlife tours are all available in Golden Bay.
For a nice hot shower, you are more than welcome to step inside our house!
We are happy to provide a free simple breakfast, and you are welcome to join the family for a hearty evening meal if required, at $25 per person.
Come and wind down under huge starlit skies. We look forward to meeting you!
No smoking in the accomodation thank you.
We had a great stay in Golden Bay. Wendy and Patrick were fantastic hosts; welcoming, friendly, very knowledgable about the area and gave us some good tips.
Watching the stars until falling asleep was almost as good as the breakfast on the sunny terrace.
We would definitely stay again!
Wendy and Patrick welcomed us with a choice of tea, coffee or a cold beer! They are intelligent , well travelled and a joy to spend time with. We stayed in the sleep-out, along with the piano, and it was everything they said it would be. Super comfortable beds. Sleep in the bed by the window and watch the stars til you fall asleep! Bliss... Patrick's home mixed muesli well deserves it's reputation. Beautiful people, beautiful gardens...what more can I say. Highly recommended.
Very nice place in a very nice location. Comfortable room.
And Wendy and Patrick were great hosts. Very friendly, and full of advice on things to do and see in Golden Bay.
My mom and I had such a lovely stay. Wendy and Patrick are so hospitable and such lovely people. They gave us helpful information and went beyond the necessary to make our holiday enjoyable. They even took us to get oysters off their local beach! We will definitely stay with them again the next time we're in the area.
Wendy and Patrick were delightful hosts who made us feel totally welcome at their secluded house and cabin in the garden. Wendy cooked a delicious meal on our first night, as we had a long drive from Greymouth. The surrounding area was very beautiful, especially Wharakiki Beach and Totaranui, although the drive to Totaranui is not for the faint-hearted. Also (email hidden) in Pohana which was good value, but Takaka was a bit lacking in good places to eat, although the supermarket was excellent for self catering.
This cabin is a good economic option to stay in Golden Bay. The best thing though are the hosts! Wendy and Pat gave us many great tips about what to see in the area. There were many beautiful places nearby to see and great tracks to walk. We also really enjoyed the breakfast in their lovely terrace looking to the wonderful garden.
Wendy and Patrick are wonderful hosts we really felt like returning "home." 2 nights was actually too short as we were told when we arrived wendy. They gave us valuable advice and allowed to return with one of our best memories of New Zealand.
Thank you very much you two! Caroline & Caroline
