We are excited to welcome you to our listing , our new beautiful cottage set on an organic coastal property with stunning views over the ocean. We have private swimming and kayaking off the land (tidal) . Peaceful and private, this is the perfect retreat to enjoy the myriad of birdlife and ever-changing ocean/estuary views. We are centrally located in sub-tropical Golden bay only 5 minutes from Takaka village and another minute to Paynes Ford rock-climbing and river holes.
This new cottage is made of untreated cedar and oiled with natural oils so not only is it non-toxic but it smells divine! Set in a private garden with complimentary organic veggies the view overlooks the estuary and ocean.Because we want to enhance the connection to nature, our new bathroom and kitchen are 20 metres away from the cabin.. thereby providing an opportunity to enjoy the moonlight!. We are proud of our all season bathroom and because we believe in conserving our beautiful water we have installed a Swedish designed compost toilet.( So please be aware this is not a flush toilet! )Also our latex and organic cotton queen bed is in the loft and is accessed by an easy ladder(so a certain amount of mobility is required!). If Sunrise cottage is booked Pls check our other listing- Nazmina bus by the sea.
The neighbourhood is rural, quiet and peaceful. There are 3 different beaches accessed by an easy walk from our place.
  • Awesome scenery. Complimentary use of kayaks was a big bonus. Paddles right next to a fur seal at a point that was a miniature pancake rocks!

  • Fiona's lodge had everything you needed and was able to spend it without stress. In particular, the kitchen was open and had a lot of pots and utensils, which was great for me to cook.

    Kirsten2019-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • We had great stay of three nights at Fiona's place. The accomodation is lovely and comfortable, and the kitchen and bathroom very well equipped. The local area of Golden Bay has lots to offer, and the town of Takaka has many interesting things to see. Highly recommend this place.

    Light and bright modern and clean, cosy! Well equiped with full kitchen facilities, Big deck, for the indoor-outdoor living, with a gas barbecue and outdoor table and chairs, to take advantage of the lazy days of summer, pet-friendly! One bedroom with a queen bed, there is a fold out sofa if needed, but is more suited to a couple. Only too happy to be contacted for help for any reason :) Two minutes away from the lovely Patons Rock beach, which boasts some of the best fishing area in the Bay.
  • Recommend. Well appointed and very clean. A great spot to relax.

    Diane2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is a converted shipping container home which we were quite interested to try out having some interest in the idea. It was very comfortable with well designed spaces that work well in the small total space available. The home has a substantial lot and a lovely large sunny deck. Slight drawback from a little road noise but that didn't bother us at all. Recommended

    Relax and enjoy the stunning, ever-changing sea and estuary views from this quiet, peaceful cottage on 2 acres of native and pine. Awake to sunrise and birdsong from your bed or grab a cuppa and take it all in from the comfort of an easy chair.
    The cottage is more suited to a couple or solo traveler.
    For those who need real R and R, put your feet up, relax and enjoy the all day panorama, bush and bird life from the comfort of home. For the adventurous there is great kayaking, rock climbing, mountain biking, tramping and swimming. For the more sedate, enjoy some magnificent easy walks, check out our quirky township, or leave the car at home and explore the beaches at your doorstep, find the seals and take in the amazing bird life. It's all here.
  • A great location for watching the sunrise over Golden Bay. Close to the great little town of Takaka, Abel Tasman NP and Cape Farewell. Exceptional host.

  • What an amazing place! Words can’t describe how wonderful the view is. Waking up every morning to an incredible sunrise over the water and sitting on the balcony in the evening watching the sunset will stay in our memories for ever. On top of that, Chris’ apartment is really well equipped and laid out. Location is perfect for Golden Bay and the Able Tasman. So much on offer, but Chris was incredibly helpful providing advice as to best beaches, walks, restaurants etc. Wonderful.

    Rob2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Chris's house is amazing, inside and outside! Inside you will find everything what you can need. Outside you can enjoy the fantastic and ever changing view. It's the perfect place from where you can explore the Golden Bay and the Abel Tasman NP. Don 't hesitate with booking this place, I promise you will not regret it!

    John2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing views from the property and the hospitality by Chris is some of the best I've experienced. The location itself is a little secluded so it's perfect if you want some piece and quiet. You won't be disappointed.

Perched on top of our garage the cabin has gorgeous views across the farmland to the mountains in Kahurangi National Park. For warm nights there is a fan to keep you cool, and chilly nights a panel heater to keep you snug. And plenty of Totoro memorabilia to keep you company....
    Takaka is a unique experience in itself with plenty of interesting places to visit and discover. Sitting between the two stunning National Parks of Abel Tasman and Kahurangi it is truly an outdoor lovers paradise!

  • What a great place! I was only here overnight but it was wonderfully comfortable and I felt right at home in my little cabin. The view at night as the sun sets is just perfect...and you can watch it from bed. Very nice host, super attentive and wants to make you feel welcome. The cat is an added bonus, and there are some very curious chickens in the yard as well.

  • Jocelyn's place was so beautiful and exactly what we were looking for in a retreat away from a big city. Would recommend if wanting to stay in nature surrounded by beautiful mountains, streams and native birds. We found it a great jump off spot for sea kayaking in Abel Tasman park.

    Kerri2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place is the best. Gorgeous inside and out. I loved having the private patio with BBQ grill, garage, tub with shower over, and a little window in the shower to bring that extra bit of refreshment. Press pot with good coffee supplied- heaven. Nice tea variety too. Oh and the fresh milk in the fridge- so nice. Huge bed, lots of pillows, lovely view on the patio, heater for the cool mornings, all made it so I did not want to leave. Fortunately had 2 nights here and highly recommend. Location is very good, between Collingwood and Takaka, with lots to do and see in the area. Hosts are fantastic.

    Margaret2020-02-29T00:00:00Z

A comfortable space with lovely little touches - fresh flowers, strawberries, milk, muesli, bread and spreads. Mesmerising art work on the walls. Loved our short stay.

    Stop looking and start booking! We had a great first season last Summer. We’ve listened to our guests and made some changes as we want to increase your overall experience and lift from 4.8 to 5 Stars. This is the ideal spot to return to after a busy day sightseeing. NOTE: Maximum occupancy is 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children (under 12). See you soon!
    Situated at the rear of the property our little Bungalow is perfectly placed. Enjoy the picturesque views over the surrounding farmland, wander the orchards and pick fruit, collect fresh eggs from the chook run, or simply enjoy the peace and quiet on your own private deck. We are centrally located in Golden Bay, just 5 minutes from Takaka and more importantly, the Mussel Inn! We're 10 minutes from Collingwood. From here it is equal distance across the bay to all the major attractions whether you're heading West to Wharariki Beach or East into the Abel Tasman. We recommend staying 3 nights as this gives you two full days to explore many of the sights.
    We are rurally situated. Our nearest neighbour is about 200m away. We are surrounded by farmland, so we're sometimes surrounded by dairy cows. Apart from the odd truck going by it is a very peaceful place.
  • We had a great time here, highly recommend

    Carl2020-03-16T00:00:00Z

Fumiko and Richard are the loveliest hosts ❤️ We got fresh fruits from the garden and eggs from their chicken - this is pure luxus! Thank you so much for having us!

    Anthea2020-03-14T00:00:00Z

    Regine2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is one of, if not the best Airbnb we have stayed at. The location is fantastic being a short drive into the lovely town of Takaka and within walking distance to a beautiful beach. The cottage itself was perfect for our family, travelling with a baby it is often difficult to find accommodation where we can happily let our little one crawl around and explore but the cottage was spotlessly clean and my little one very much loved crawling around and playing with the toys that Fumiko and Richard provided. The house sits within manicured grounds overlooking a fruit trees and paddocks. My little girl really loved the Bob and Boo Boo, the two little pigs, as well as the chickens. The cottage was well stocked with quality crockery and cooking utensils. We were a little worried that the cottage would be really hot without having AC, however, it was really cool inside as the windows could be slid fully open and the insect covers meant no creepy crawlers could get into the cottage. All in all we had such a great stay and will definitely come back should we ever be lucky enough to make it back to Golden Bay. I would very much recommend staying here if you visit Golden Bay.

    Lisa2020-02-10T00:00:00Z

    Arlene2020-01-19T00:00:00Z

  • Wonderful hosts, great location right on the beach! Spotlessly clean and too many thoughtful touches to list (even fresh baked cookies!). We will definitely stay again if we can. My only little issue was that I found the bed and pillows a little on the firm side.

    Douglas2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had 11 wonderful days here. The welcome and hospitality extended by Julie and Trish was just exceptional. The location is very private and just idyllic. The accommodation is extremely clean with lots of nice personal touches. So close to Takaka but so quiet and peaceful. If you are looking for the ideal relaxing spot in Golden Bay, this is not to be missed. Highly recommended

    Alan2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place is incredible! Great views and even better hospitality. The amenities were all top notch and Julie is a great hostess! I just wish we had more time to stay and enjoy the place!

    Melanie2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely tranquil spot right on the water. Excellent hospitality, cleanliness etc. Would stay again.

    Howard2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful property over Christmas. The house is extremely clean and had all of the facilities that we required. A particular highlight was use of the kayaks which we paddled round the bay! Julie was a wonderful, attentive host!

On our 3 acres property, we have flower, vegetable & herb gardens, orchard and chickens. Native birds, such as Fantails, Tuis and Wood pigeons are flying around the property throughout the year.

The cottage has fully equipped kitchen with microwave and fridge/freezer. Shower, toilet and washing machine in the bathroom. Sets of sofas, coffee table, dining table, free view TV, DVD player etc in the living room. One bedroom has a king bed, chair, dresser, chest and clothes hanger.

    Romantic Getaway. Seeing it is loving it! The Caboose is a handcrafted replica of an old train carriage, with a private garden. Set on a half acre property with a historic farmhouse, only 5 minutes drive from the beach and Takaka township.
    Romantic Getaway. Seeing it is loving it! The Caboose is a handcrafted replica of an old train carriage, with a private garden. Set on a property with a historic farmhouse, only 5 minutes drive from the beach and Takaka township. Great for both summer and winter with a pot belly making it cosy on the colder nights and an outside bath for a romantic soak under the stars. Your stay at the The Caboose in Golden Bay will hopefully be a special experience that you will remember! Close to Takaka and close to the beaches, so perfect as a base for your holiday or as your base to explore the natural wonders Golden Bay has to offer. Or just stay in The Caboose and ... relax! We do not offer Wifi or television, hoping you will be able to get away from it all, but there are plenty of books and magazines to keep you occupied and a few games. And just to let you know ... we have children, so you might hear or see the odd child in the garden, but they will respect your privacy and the fact that you are on holiday and want to relax. Some of the feedback we were given: - Made to feel very welcome. Easy to relax inside and outside the Caboose. Really enjoyed exploring Golden Bay. Nice combination of Art Trail, natural beauty and good food - Great location and excellent accommodation. The Caboose was beautifully presented and had everything we needed. The perfect place to relax - Great spot for a get away and top location to base ourselves from to explore golden bay and up to farewell spit! Really nice place to stay and the outside bath, shower, hammock and dining area was ideal and made it even more special for us! - Thanks so much for the relaxing refuge. Beautifully quiet, would recommend to anyone who needs some time out - The outside bath is awesome. We'll be back :) Truly one of the best accommodations my wife and I have ever spent time in - after 40 years of traveling. A small space but absolutely magical and meticulously detailed. A true labour of love created by someone with a genius level of originality and inspiration. This little wonder is dripping with soul. After leaving and checking into our next night's accommodation after leaving Takaka, we felt an overwhelming sense of loss - realizing our one night stay there hadn't been nearly long enough. - A very unique, relaxing and private get-away! We loved staying in the Caboose with our 2 year old daughter and will happily recommend it to others. The private backyard with outdoor bath and shower were a highlight, and the welcoming eggs and beer a lovely touch. Thank you, I'm sure we will be back!
    Rural outlook over farmlands but close to beach and lots to explore. Golden Bay is New Zealand's most diverse and appealing holiday destination. Imagine a region with endless variety, where golden beaches, alpine valleys and tranquil fishing rivers share a close proximity with the sea. Breathtaking scenery, arts and crafts, sporting activities. There's something for everyone. Golden Bay is nestled into the South Island's north-west corner. A chain of steep and rugged mountains cuts its fertile river plains and valleys from the rest of the island.
  • The caboose was a lovely spot from which to explore Golden Bay! The listing was very accurate. It’s a peaceful, cozy place with very welcoming hosts.

    Lynnie2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay in the Caboose. It’s as cute and cozy as it looks in the photos, but also had all of the amenities we’ve found in much larger apartments/spaces (we cooked a full dinner and breakfast).

    Brittany2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the caboose! It was such a unique, quirky spot but felt so cozy, secluded yet close to town. We would totally stay here again, cheers and thank you Peter & Lisa!

    Courtney2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Lisa’s place. It’s very comfortable and quiet, a bit remote, although close to the beach.

    lizet2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Simply amazing

    Boet2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • A must stay spot if you’re in Golden Bay!!! Such a unique space and the hosts Lisa and Peter are so lovely and go above and beyond to make your experience memorable. The caboose is adorable, cozy and well-outfitted with everything you need, and the gardens with the outdoor shower and bath are perfection. Regardless of the rain we loved our time exploring the beaches and parks here, lots of yummy laidback cafes and bars too!

    Kaleigh2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place is definitely worth the hype. The job they have done on converting this train is magnificent - it’s incredibly well thought out and beautifully finished. Ultra comfy bed, big / powerful outdoor shower and every kitchen utensil you need for a short or long stay. We had four nights in the train, explored all day / every day and could’ve easily done another week around takaka. Note: if you are planning on kayaking the able Tasman - start from the golden bay side if you want a more picturesque experience without the hoards of people. Would definitely stay at the train again. Thanks Lisa and Otis for a super relaxed, private experience.

    Sam2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • This place is spectacular, best Airbnb I've been to. Caboose itaelf has separate bedroom, kitchen with stove and incredible fireplace which is perfect foe cold evenings. Bathroom outside under the sky is fantastic. Also in the garden you got barbecue to use. Lisa and Peter are really friendly host which I can highly recommend and so is thier full of energy dog :)

    Named after my Gypsy hearted grandmother, Alma May, is a glorious retro caravan (although she’s quite modest about it all). She’s cheap n cheerful and packed with quirks and charm. She’s a lover of nature and the outdoors which fortunately fits with her alfresco shower and earthy compost mushroom shaped toilet. Alma May loved having visitors to host and create stories and adventure with. Priced at half the cost of a camp site in Pohara, she’s a right bargain.

    Watch the tide ebb and flow and the birds fly and forage from the living area or large deck of this bach with it's wonderful view over the Onekaka estuary. A 2 min walk over the causeway will bring you to the estuary entrance and the beachfront. Situated halfway between Takaka and Collingwood the location is perfect for exploring gorgeous Golden bay. For a refreshment afterwards the mussel Inn is a 3 min drive or a 15min walk away. There are 2 kayaks available to use
    The bach is a comfy , recently renovated one bedroom, one bathroom space with kitchenette suitable for light cooking. Light and airy it is a great space for relaxing.
    Golden bay is a paradise for nature lovers with gorgeous beaches, (Wharariki beach is a 40min drive away and if lucky you can see baby seals playing in the pools exposed at low tide) rivers and plenty of hiking trails and lush forests. Milnthorpe park 6mins drive away has a maze of tracks , beautiful bush and beach. It is also known for it's vibrant artistic community and has many galleries. The Mussel Inn is a very popular cafe/bar/music venue just 15mins walk or 5mins drive away from the property. There are other bars and cafes in Takaka or Collingwood about 15km away. Anatoki salmon farm, 23km away allows you to catch your own salmon and can cook it for you there. If you have your own rod you can try your luck casting off the beach near the property. The area sadly has the occasional whale stranding and we have seen one stranded on the beach at Onekaka. We have also seen dolphins near the beach. Hack'n'stay 7kms away provide horse trekking and riding. Scenic flights over the bay are also available from the Takaka airport located 11km away.
  • This apartment is in a great location on an estuary between Collingwood and Takaka. Although not a modern space, it is spacious, functional, with outstanding views from its many windows. It is clean, comfortable, with a great supply of DVDs and books. We hope to return another year to spend more than 3 days there. Even though Fiona was unable to be present, she was very responsive and helpful to us.

    Rosemary2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely little cottage with a view over the estuary. Lovely walks and close to anywhere in Golden Bay. Lots of space and we loved sitting outside on the deck!

    Liz2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful spot to really relax and recharge the batteries. Easy stroll to the beach, excellent views of the estuary which is interesting to watch fill and empty. Would recommend to those that enjoy simple and peaceful parts of the world.

    Anne2020-01-25T00:00:00Z

    Adriana2020-01-18T00:00:00Z

    Laura2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lots of space to relax and spread out. Very enjoyable stay. I’ll definitely book again.

    Aviette2019-11-15T00:00:00Z

    Pamela2019-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location to mussel Inn and Collingwood where we adored the food at the Courthouse. This space although near the main house was private and well equipped with great amenities for everything you need for a trip away. Stunning estuary views this host has thought of everything to ensure your stay is relaxing . Tasteful decor, awesome DVD and book selections. All new kitchen and utensils and Devine bed linen meant a perfect stay.

  • Gail's place is so much more than we expected. We had a fabulous couple of nights in this spacious, clean and well equipped apartment while we crammed as much as we could fit into our trip to Golden Bay. The outdoor living space and outlook is lovely too. Gail is a fabulous and friendly host who looked after us very well.

    Linda2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Gail was the most involved, thoughtful, and kind host I have ever had. Her homemade bread was such a great touch.

    Courtney2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Gail is a wonderful host. We were warmly welcomed and we were shown everything. Everything was clean and nicely arranged. The still warm bread was delicious and there was also something in the fridge for breakfast. We had a great time and according to the guest book there were probably plenty of us ahead of us. Thanks Gail

    Carina2020-03-11T00:00:00Z

  • Gail is an AMAZING host and her place is absolutely perfect - just a few minutes away from Takaka. The apartment is very well equipped and comfortable and Gail as a host goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome and cared for. She and her husband live just upstairs and we’re so helpful to us during our visit. This is the kind of place Airbnb was made for! We absolutely recommend!

  • Great location, newly renovated guest suite with probably the faster internet connection we've had so far in NZ, which came in super handy when having to deal with all the cancellations and rebookings due to this wee bug going around. Christine and Peter were very understanding and accomodating, providing useful tips on getting around as well as a great welcome and a send off. Would definitely visit again.

    Karolis2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • This is a superior bnb. Christine and Peter have given great thought to ensuring their guests have everything they need for a comfortable stay. They welcomed us very warmly. The location is ideal for the beach, food outlets and for nearby sightseeing.

    Terry2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Christine & Peter's place. On our travels through North and South Island we've stayed in quite a few airbnb properties and this was the best in terms of decor, amenities, location and all the little extras the hosts provide, as well as being immaculately clean. The complimentary breakfast is delicious and plentiful and includes tasty homemade jams. Peter and Christine are warm and welcoming and gave us lots of tips for places to visit locally. If you are looking to stay in the Golden Bay area this is the place to pick - cannot recommend highly enough.

    Steven2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Christine and David are wonderful hosts, we really enjoyed our three nights staying at their premises. The location is perfect for visiting Abel Tasman or the Farewell Spit. There are plenty of beautiful beaches nearby, in fact you just need to cross the street for a swim. Takaka with its restaurants, bars and supermarkets is just a 15min drive away, but there are also nice options in walking distance. We would definitely come back!

    Mathias2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    Nicolas2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in Pohara was very nice. Christine and Peter are kind and friendly hosts, who provided us with everything we needed: travel advice, tipps and homegrown peaches! The apartment is tidy and clean, located in a calm area close to the beach. We spent two wonderful days there - one hiking adventure in the Abel Tasman Park and another day in the Golden Bay. Thank you for everything!

    Gaia2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is a nicely furnished, clean studio in a quiet neighborhood with off-street parking - and is convenient to Takaka and surrounding areas and activities.   The bed and couch are comfortable, the bathroom is a generous size, and the kitchen area provides enough kitchenware/appliances for a simple meal or snacks.  There is fast internet, beach chairs, and a portable fan (in case you get warm). The hosts are wonderful, friendly and can provide plenty of helpful information about the area. The AirBNB descriptions and photos are accurate. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return again.

    Paul2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Christine & Peter are great hosts and they gave us total privacy. We forgot to bring toothpaste and they gave us some toothpaste. The place is right next to beach and you can walk to there.( around 3 mins walk ) !! The shops and restaurants are all walkable. We have had a lovely stay and would love to come back to visit again! By the way the complimentary breakfast is yummy, especially the muesli😊

    Situated a short drive from Takaka, tucked away in a huge back garden, is a private, cosy, warm and self-contained yurt with lovely mountain and garden views. The yurt is surrounded by fruit trees and veggie beds, which guests are welcome to use. The Garden Yurt is an ideal place to use as a base to unwind, switch off and recharge while on your travels or on holiday. A quiet weekend get away to Golden Bay is complete with a quiet, central and private base. Who doesn't want to sleep in a yurt?!
    The yurt has solid wooden floors, is light and warm, has a kitchenette with oven, gas hob, coffee and tea making facilities, and a good range of pots, pans, cutlery and plates etc. It has a fire, is insulated and ventilated. Yurt living is relatively simple but highly functional and convenient, helped along by solar power. The composting toilet and outdoor shower are basic, yet well functioning and easy to use, and are right next to the yurt for your convenience. Children are more than welcome for a small added cost. The yurt has a double bed and if children are coming, a single mattress and/or portacot available on request. All bedding provided. For those of you looking for a glamping luxury retreat - while this is clean, tidy, water tight, has power and is warm, it also has a rustic charm! Please be prepared for the 'nuances' of yurt life. You do need to read the instructions for the various 'functions' carefully, and just ask us if you need a hand! From time to time things will be temperamental, however we are here to help and happy to do so! Children do live on the property :) Small fridge available in the yurt, and a separate fridge and washing machine available at the house for you to utilise if needed. If you are looking for a private, spacious, clean, tidy, well looked after, dry, cosy and comfortable retreat after an adventure or two in the great outdoors of Mohua, Golden Bay, look no further.
    Golden Bay/Mohua is renowned for it's beautiful beaches, rivers, mountains and national parks. We are a 2 minute drive from some of the best coffee and kai in NZ, and rivers are also 2 mins away.
  • The yurt is warm, with a lovely fire and cosy bed. Very close to nature. I would recommend for a nice private quiet place to stay in Takaka

    Takaka township is a only two minute walk away. There are lots of local attractions to see and do - many within a 5 minute drive. There is so much to do in Golden Bay...you might need to book another night! You’ll love my place because my home is full of charm, colour and quirkiness! It's a 1950's villa with gorgeous rimu floors, cosy furnishings and lots of lovely spots to curl up in the sun! Your furry friends are most welcome - may not be suitable for toddlers due to the front porch
    My home is central to all the things you would want to do in Golden Bay and is the perfect balance of convenience, charm, lush and cosy comfort and of course...location, location, location!
    Golden Bay is such a lovely colourful and diverse community of talented and passionate people...there is something here for everyone..take time to get to know the locals..the stories some of them can tell! Warning - take some yarns with a grain of salt!
  • Abbey's house is really cosy and comfortable. I really enjoyed staying with her!

    Nico2020-03-21T00:00:00Z

Her place is so stylishly and thoughtfully decorated and tended to - you can tell she has put a lot of love and care into her home and the gardens, which are beautiful and surround the whole house. The location is also great, with the town only a short walk away. Abbey herself is a wonderful host and gave us many great tips and recommendations that helped us make the most of our time in Takaka and the South Island. Another added bonus was Jackson, her friendly pup! Both Abbey and Jackson made us feel right at home. Thanks again for the lovely stay! Marisa & Eike

    Eike2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Abbey and her faithful dog Jackson were wonderful hosts! I would definitely recommend a stay at her unique home!

    Rob2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Abbey's place is filled with a light and warmth and provides an inviting and comfortable ambience, it is tastefully decorated and nicely furnished. Simple and minimalist in design, the house functions well and has plenty of space to relax in sun and shade. Abbey is delightful, charming, kind and helpful and I consider her an exemplary host. Her dog Jackson is a friendly, quiet and cuddly companion. All in all, a great place to stay.

    Willem2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Welcome, house very pleasant to live in and well placed to visit Golden Bay. We spent a week at Abbey who gave us perfect advice on places to visit. Do not hesitate, our only regret is not to have stayed longer.

    Eric2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Abbey has created a real haven of simply styled comfort and welcome. Easy access to all you need in Takaka. And Abbey seems so pleased to share her love of Golden Bay. Captivating!

    Guillaume2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Cath is a wonderful host, and we really enjoyed our stay. The room has everything you might need, is cosy, and is situated near the main part of town. It's a great home base if you're exploring the parks nearby or the art scene. Cath keeps the place sparkling clean, and it's quiet and warm in the evening. We'd love to stay here if we're in the area again, and would recommend Cath to others!

    Ashley2019-11-17T00:00:00Z

    Darren2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • I’ve been staying at Jane’s place for two nights. I should have booked more. The place was the most comfortable, relaxing and heavenish plce I’ve stayed at. The inner yard, just 5 meters to the beach, I had a blast. Even though it was grey, I’ve had the time of my life, having tea in the mornings by the beach. Jane has been the sweetest and kindest host. Communicative and very helpful. She made me feel home, not only the place with extra entrance, but also her very kind way. Very cheerful and contagious. I’d highly recommend that place to everybody. For peace of mind, travel to another dimension. Having jo WiFi was a great gift. The mussels inn is super close with amazing food, very connecting people and WiFi when needed. The location is optimal to get everywhere. Thank you a ton Jane and Brian! It’s been the greatest pleasure 😊🙃

    Cigdem2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Jane and her husband are a delightful couple. Very helpful with their local knowledge and super friendly. The studio is super comfy with everything you would ever need or want. The beach is right at your doorstop. A great place to stay when starting the Heaphy track walk from brown hut. Make sure you visit the Mussel Inn for a bite to eat. The mussels are fabulous. Would definitely stay at janes place again if out that way. Thank you Jane 💕

    Judy2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very good little sleeping location, with all the simple things - toilet, shower, and a nice breakfast provided. Easy walk through the front gate directly onto the beach - good swimming high or low tide, we sat out on the beach late watching the stars (and Elon Musk space satellites) - it was all very magical. Easy access to Wharariki Beach, Farewell Spit, The Mussel Inn, Takaka township (for coffee, restaurants, and supermarkets). Its all about the location and this ticks all the boxes.

    Matthew2020-02-26T00:00:00Z

  • It was a lovely stay there. Just at the back of the garden is the beach, where the sea is wonderful to swim. We had a warm welcome from Jane and gave us some tips where to go hiking.

    Leave the world behind in this one roomed cottage nestled in 5 hectares of native bush among park like grounds bordering on Kahurangi National Park. Relax to the sound of birdsong, bask in the sun on the deck, soak up the peace and tranquilty. Sleep in a comfortable queen bed with cotton sheets. Golden Bay is an outdoor adventure playground surrounded by two National Parks with outstanding beaches, caves, native rain forest and mountains.
    This one-roomed cabin has a comfortable queen bed and sunny deck in a peaceful and tranquil setting amongst harekeke, kanuka and nikau bush with an outlook onto Kahurangi National Park. Your room comes equipped with a simple outdoor kitchen with microwave, gas hob, toaster, tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge. There is an outdoor wood-fired bbq area with deck chairs and outdoor seating. There is an optional continental breakfast (please let us know if you want this). The bathroom is shared and it is a short walk across a courtyard. There is no public transport in Golden Bay so you need your own car, parking onsite. This 3 hectare property has been a private family home for the last 40 years and is a quirky home to a writer and an artist. It features a QE2 covenanted swamp with board walk and loop track, with extensive gardens taking up much of the rest. Situated eight kilometres before Collingwood on the main Takaka – Collingwood Highway and 1.6km past the Mussel Inn, it is centrally located to explore all that Golden Bay has to offer from Farewell Spit and the wild West Coast beaches to the Abel Tasman National Park in the east.  
    Close to beaches and 1.6 km from the Mussel Inn. 18 km from Takaka township which has banks, post office, supermarket, cafes and shops. Eight km from Collingwood which has a superette, a pub, post office and cafes. Centrally located in Golden Bay between Farewell Spit and Abel Tasman National Park. Neighbouring on Kahurangi National Park.We do not recommend only one night stays in Golden Bay. It is a very long and winding road to get here and back with not that much to see from the car. All the best spots are off the beaten track.
  • Stop looking, this is the perfect place to stay will in the golden bay area! Melanie and Gerard were amazing hosts and the funky cabin is, well funky! Will be back!

    Joe2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely amazing and beautiful little cabin in the middle of nowhere. I stayed for 2 nights and I can highly recommend this place ! I definitely wanna come back one day.

    Nathalie2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • The Cabin was wonderful and the set up was great. Everything you needed was there with extremely helpful hosts. Melanie and Gerard were so welcoming and friendly. Had an amazing stay and would highly recommend!!

    Charlotte2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great and clean cabin with many interesting and beautiful details. Gerard and Melanie are super friendly and helpful. Their tips on what to do brought me the best day of my New Zealand journey so far. 5/5 :)

    Lukas2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • A cool funky place to stay, reminded me of a small festival. The hosts were lovely and friendly. Great location if your doing the farewell spit tour or heading to golden bay.

    Jules2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Really unique place with rural surroundings. We spent two nights here and loved it! The shower is really cool and you have everything you’ll need :) very friendly and creative hosts! Unfortunately the weather was not great but we still had a good time.

    Hannah2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • If you want to experience the genuine, original, Golden Bay alternative lifestyle this is the place to stay. Forty years ago Gerard bought some swamp and with Melanie, his artist wife, turned it into a hippie paradise. He knows everything there is to know about the area and its history - he has literally written the book on it. From the jungle shower (accessed across a rather wobbly cobble walkway) to the steampunk barbeque this is a rustic affair and definitely not polished or sophisticated. You will probably encounter various critters. If you want to hear the birds sing, look up at the stars and commune with nature in a wonderland of crazy creativity book in here while there is still space.

  • Julie and Mark's cottage is just perfect for a relaxing break away. They are great hosts - quick communication and very welcoming (but leave you to enjoy the peace and quiet of their little piece of paradise) Their little touches of fresh scones, chocolates and fresh flowers made our stay extra special. The accommodation is sparkling clean, cosy and comfortable (excellent bed and comfy lounge chairs) and has everything you need. The BBQ is perfect for cooking meals on the little outside sheltered deck, so even though there is no oven, cooking is not a problem. We would definitely recommend Julie and Mark's place to anyone wanting a quiet, relaxing place to stay in Golden Bay.

  • Highly highly recommend staying with Zahra for anyone looking for affordable accommodation in a beautiful part of takaka. The property is awesome and the hospitality is second to none. Zahra goes out of her way to look after you and ensure you have everything you need. The views from the house are insane, and access to town is quick and easy. The first time finding your way to the property can be a little confusing (up a hill just out of town), but Zahra makes sure you have directions and that she can be contacted if there's any issues. If you're after chilled out, happy vibes, with a helpful, caring and friendly host, then I can thoroughly recommend staying here.

    Danny2019-01-27T00:00:00Z

  • Tracey's place was an excellent stay for us as we explored the Golden Bay/Abel Tasman area and ventured up to Farewell Spit. The rooms are large and comfortable, and it was incredibly quiet at night. Tracey made us feel welcome with fresh bread on arrival, which I admittedly ate more than my fair share of... A short drive to Takaka with plenty of options for food, it was a great stay.

    New comfortable home, with lovely mountain views, set in a private garden with secure parking space, 5 minutes from Takaka town and surrounded by beautiful beaches and walks.
    The room has it's own access and private bathroom. It's quiet and clean, with good light and morning sun. Enjoy the dawn chorus. There is a small fridge for your convenience, tea and coffee making facilities. If you come at the right time, there is fresh fruit from the orchard. Wireless WI-Fi is available on request free of charge. Otherwise I prefer to keep it off. If you enjoy natural living, there is also an outside shower.
    This area is called "rural-residential". You can't really see the neighbors, but it's only 5 km from Takaka's centre with it's cafes and cinema, and 10 km the other way to the famous Mussel Inn, with their own brews and lively gigs. You can walk to the beach and the river mouth. It's quiet and safe.

    The Chalet is fully self-contained with a large separate bedroom and a romantic log stove for chilly evenings. It has a sunny deck at the front and a short stroll across the lawn and down the path leads you to the safe and beautiful Tukurua beach.
    The gardens were first laid out in 1978 with the planting of 1500 rhododendrons, later were added camellias and hostas. The present owners are committed to organic management and have added orchards of fruiting trees, vegetables and herbs with flowering shrubs, native exotic & subtropical and restored the native bush areas.
  • Great section, next to the beach, clean and quiet

    Alan2020-03-12T00:00:00Z

  • The lodge is great. It opens out on to the most stunning beach and we enjoyed is thoroughly! Would come again.

  • Quiet space with scenic surrounds ideal for a relaxing get away. Views absolutely spectacular. Henry is quick and very helpful with information. Even couriered my backpack carelessly left behind to my next accommodation. Highly recommend.

    Matt2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Henry’s place is in the most amazing location, surrounded by native forest with beautiful views over the sea and private access down to the beach. A little slice of paradise.

  • We had a change of travel plans last minute and needed somewhere to stay quickly, the communication from this property was so efficient and fast and we ended up loving the amazing spot, the house is on an amazing piece of property. Highly recommend!

    Jess2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Well this is a very special place!! You are surrounded by nature and it’s the nearest I will get to staying in the bush. Acres to explore, magical places to sit , with views to die for and a comfy bed and bags of hot water.

    Our comfortable two bedroom unit is located opposite Patons Rock Reserve, only 200 meters from the beach. The open plan kitchen and lounge is fully self contained. The unit has 2 bedrooms: 1 queen size bed, one set of bunks.
    Patons Rock is a small settlement only a 10 min drive from Takaka and central to the attractions of Golden Bay. An ideal place for children to enjoy with a safe beach for swimming. Lovely for taking long walks or fishing off the rocks. Alternatively relax in our big garden under the shade of the plum trees.
    Lot's of art galleries and potteries to visit, the famous Mussel Inn is only a few minutes drive away. Abel Tasman Nat. Park and Kahurangi Nat. Park offer lots of different walks/scenery
  • We really enjoyed our stay here, the apartment was just the right size for the 4 of us (2 adults, 2 boys aged 2 & 5). It was clean and the amenities suited us. We loved being close to the beach for an after dinner stroll to. Gabriele is a lovely host as well, very helpful and friendly!

    Julia2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place, super host! Perfect spot for discovering all Golden Bay. Super quiet, super well located, close to the beach. Gabriele is very friendly and welcoming. We definitely recommend this place !

    Anne-Sophie2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Tidy accommodation close to a beautiful beach. Suitable for 2 people, or a small family. The second bedroom was a bit smaller than expected, but Gabriele gave us linen to use the sofa bed instead. The kitchen / kitchenette space is minimal with a little fridge and two burners only (no oven), we arrived with chicken hoping to cook a roast - luckily Gabriele gave us a slow cooker to use. Despite this I would still recommend this stay. 😊

    Bessie2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Gabriele’S place was in a lovely location and great for exploring farewell spit and national parks in that area. The accomodation was very clean , comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. Gabriele was very friendly and helpful with local knowledge of the area

    Peter2019-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • What a treat! Gabriele is such a lovely person and a great host, the unit was perfect for what we needed, and so clean! Patons Rock was is the perfect location, great center point for seeing what the Bay has to offer. We really enjoyed our stay, only wished it was longer.

    Sam2019-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • The thoughtful personal touches fresh flowers, supplies were delightful. The rooms were spotless clean and well equipped. The location close to the beach was very romantic and well placed for Cape Farewell. Sad we couldn't stay longer than our two days.

    Debbie2019-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • Nice and cosy place just outside of Takaka. We enjoyed our stay and will be back

    Jack2019-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • AMAZING location, 2 minute walk to Patons Rock beach & 5 minute drive to takaka. We enjoyed all of our meals at the outdoor table provided and slept sound in the comfy beds. Fast WiFi, beautiful gardens, and the beach!!

  • This little cottage is quaint and a marvelous getaway. The Golden Bay is not easy to get to, but The Blue Cottage makes all the windy roads worth it. Our children were thrilled about the books. The fresh milk was a nice and appreciated touch as well. It's definitely a cozy little place.

    Cozy chalet close to Takaka township, perfect for romantic getaways or time with friends and family. The chalet is comfortably furnished for 4 people with all you need for a short or long stay. Nestled between the Abel Tasman, Kahurangi National Park and the many beaches of Golden Bay within a 2 minute drive to town, this is the perfect location to explore this beautiful part of New Zealand. Minimum 2 night stay. Great facilities. Private space. Sun trap garden. Parking for two cars.
    The Birds Nest is a two bedroom chalet with a large open plan living area with modern furnishings. It is totally self contained with a private garden that gets sun for most of the day.
    There's a local Swimming Hole a few hundred meters away in the Takaka river, a great place to cool down after a long summers day. Local beaches just a short drive away. Central Takaka is just a 2 minute drive or a short walk away, for shops, restaurants and entertainment. There are lots of beaches and walks within a 15 minute drive and the famous Mussel Inn is also a short drive away and great for a night out.
  • Perfect spot just within a quick walk into funky Takaka. A gorgeous cottage with everything and more we could have wanted. Thank you very much for a great family holiday!

    Nancy2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Simone and Joe’s place was exactly the charm and location we were looking for. We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed exploring the surrounding area. They were quick to respond to our questions and requests. Definitely would recommend their place to anyone looking for a charming place to stay in Takaka!

    Ally2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • We were pleasantly surprised to have arrived at Simone & Joe's rustic but comfortable place. We were welcomed with a complimentary bottle of wine which put a smile on our faces. The location was perfect for all we wanted to do in the area. Grocery stores were close by for our shopping needs. The beds were very comfortable. The rooms in the house were very roomy. It was very nice that the toilet was separate from the bathroom since we were 4 people having to share the bathroom. Being able to wash our clothes and then have a large clothesline in the yard was very much appreciated. Thank you to Simone & Joe for sharing this house with us.

    Ilona2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • If you want a comfortable and peaceful place to stay with spectacular views, visit the Birds Nest.

    Everett2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful stay we had at Simone and Joe's place! A perfect location and a truly beautiful home. There is a large bench/couch in their spacious, lovely great room by a large window - what a perfect place to sit to wind down after a long day. They are generous and gracious hosts - and went the extra mile greeting us with a delicious bottle of wine. We would definitely stay there again! Thank you Simone and Joe!!

    Deborah2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great place just far enough out of town to enjoy the serenity, yet only a couple of minutes drive away. Excellent swimming hole 5 min walk away.

    Ali2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful house in a private setting. Very handy to Abel Tasman (North end) and the Farewell Spit tour.

    Katherine2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • This Birds Nest is a calm and peaceful place to rest, and a fantastic base to explore the Golden Bay Area. The chalet is comfortable with everything you need to feel like home. Very tastefully laid out, private and easy access to many of the highlights of the area.
