What a lovely place to send a few days. Stan and Shirl have a great home that is just outside Takaka (so laid back, great bars, shops, coffee stops). We loved the outside space and views. This is a clean, homely, simple house that has just what you need.

Great location and easy to find with instructions from the owners. The rooms are very spacious. Comfortable beds and furniture. Well-equipped kitchen. Does not have heating other than a wood burner, but it keeps the cottage nice and warm. Good cell-phone reception.
