Our place is close to the beach, cafes, health spa, store, tennis court . You’ll love our place because of the utter peace and quiet, the birds, the closeness to the beach with swimming and kayaking opportunities, the short walk to cafes, the magnificent, tall native trees and hills nearby, and the sound of our babbling brook. We are a short drive from Takaka township and are ideally placed to explore the whole region from. We are only a 20 minute drive to the Abel Tasman National Park.

We were grateful for the manaakitanga/ hospitality and the chance to have a very comfortable quiet night’s rest. Although the kitchenette is in the bedroom, Brian offered us extra fridge space in their home if needed and provided jugs of filtered water.

Totally enjoyed our stay at Brian's. Location is excellent, handy to beach front and to local shop and eateries. Also close to Takaka and to Able Tasman National Park. Also very quite and peaceful, away from any road noise. Living area is more than ample and bedroom is sufficient…
