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 :)

  • 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

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!

    Much on offer and all of Golden Bay to explore. We recommend 2 day stay. Our kiwi bach style cottage sits in extensive peaceful gardens. It is self-contained, views from deck, a full kitchen, your own bathroom and all the linen you will need. It is all provided at excellent value and includes use of bbq and pizza oven(we light and supply dough). This is good quality kiwi style accommodation, lots of fun at a very good price. Lots of advise on making the most of your visit.
    Fully self contained with your own kitchen and bathroom - towels and linen provided. The chalet is 'cosy warm' has wifi, freeview and great view to the sea in a garden full of features - you'll love it, right in the heart of Golden Bay!
    Hayley and I believe Golden bay offers everyone what they are looking for in New Zealand. A unique community from farmers to artists are very welcoming. A mix of walks, stunning beaches, water falls, forest, hills, caves all easy to access - and then cafe's, galleries, music - just speak to us and we will point you in the right direction.
  • Steve's place is a great place to base yourself when exploring the Golden Bay area! Everything you need!

    Peter2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Up for an unique stay? This is the place. We had a wonderful and authentic little holiday at the sandcastle with small adventures for kids as well as adults. Awesome pizza night and sheep’s and horses for the kids to check out. The hospitality of the owner Steven is endless. Situated close to the entrance of Abel Tasman park makes it easy to explore this area and it is also close to some beautiful beaches so you can relax. This has indeed been a great place to visit and we would definitely go back if we got the chance.

    Hanna2020-03-04T00:00:00Z

    Hanneke2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • The cottages are arranged around the garden, where Steve organizes a kind of community life around the pizza oven on certain evenings. Nice garden, beautiful view towards the sea, guaranteed tranquility, calm and relaxation guaranteed. An address in the spirit of Golden Bay!

    Pohara, Tasman, New Zealand

    Feijoa Tree Cottage is situated half way between the funky Takaka township and the beautiful Pohara beach, in the heart of Golden Bay - striking distance to Kahurangi and Abel Tasman National Parks, with the incredible Rameka mountain bike track and the amazing Rawhiti Cave both very close. Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and furry friends (pets).
    Self contained modern Cottage in the beautiful grounds of a lovingly restored 1926 weatherboard family villa. There is a BBQ, toaster, kettle, microwave and hot plate with all utensils - but no cooker.
    Right in the 'heart of the parks'. Close to Kahurangi and Abel Tasman National Parks. Round the corner from Rawhiti Cave, Rameka track; Pohara beach and Takaka township only 4 kms away.
  • If you want a little bit of new Zealand paradise, then this is where you need to be. Janet is a charming host and the studio very comfortable, homely and well appointed. The garden where we enjoyed late afternoon sun is delightful. We highly recommend this AirBNB to anyone travelling in the area. Stay as long as you can, we're only disappointed we had to leave after one night. Will definitely return for longer next time.

    Hilary2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed a total of 3 days at this wonderful cottage with beautiful grounds. It is conveniently located between Takaka and Golden Bay. Takaka is an awesome little town and Golden Bay is gorgeous.

    Michael2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Would absolutely recommend this air bnb to anyone!! We will also definitely stay here again when we are in the area. Janet, Richard and their children were lovely and extremely accommodating.

  • Barrie and Anne Marie are thoughtful and knowledgeable hosts who go the extra mile for their guests. We were surprised to discover home grown strawberries, black berries and tomatoes in our room as we arrived; along with 2 ice cold brews. Barrie and Anne Marie gave us great local information which made our visit easier and more enjoyable. The accommodations are private, very clean and well presented; everything we needed was there. Making the drive over Takaka Hill to Golden Bay lets one see the best of what New Zealand has to offer; and when you combine that with the hospitality and graciousness extended by Barrie and Anne Marie, you experience life’s greatest pleasure.

  • Outstanding location, comfort, cleanliness and experience. The hosts were exceptionally kind and welcoming. I had a perfect stay and will definitely be back! I loved the fresh food from their garden and the privacy offered by the lovely unit with its own deck and ocean views. This is a very special part of the world and their home is a very special place.

  • 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.

    Craig2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Tracey and Paul are warm, loving and helpful hosts !! I haven't found a better AirBnB till this day!! I can only recommend everyone to book theirs !! There is no better one anywhere in the Golden Bay!! Thanks again for having us :-* Ingo, Susi, Maria and Georg

    Ingo2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Warm welcome from Tracey when we arrived. She gave us a tour of the Airbnb and recommendations in the area. Loved the idea of the guestbook entries of what past guests have done and enjoyed to help present guests plan their visit. The fresh baked bread was an added touch.

    Renee2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

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.

    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

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

    Carol2020-03-17T00:00:00Z

Easy walking distance to the beach, bars, fine dining and cafe's. This is a working farm visitors are asked to stay in fenced caravan areas.
    The caravan is located on limestone terracing with a panoramic view out to the sea. You have your own portable barbecue and outdoor seating, enjoy eating Alfresco in the summer or light the open fire in our rustic shelter and dine by the fire.
  • Victoria has been a perfect host. The accomodation was very clean and comfortable. The view and the surroundings were beatuifl. We would have loved to stay a little longer. I will be sure to visit on my next trip

    This 1973 Zephyr caravan is like stepping back into time. Cute, cosy, comfy and very kiwiana! With a double bed and 2 singles (caravan size beds) she is perfect for a few nights of chillaxing or a stopover to Abel Tasman NP. Zephyr sits nestled amongst the lush bush, our driveway, our babbling stream, and Falconer Rd. Be prepared to be very close to nature. The outdoor (covered) kitchen is complete with a gas cooker, sink and all the kitchen cooking essentials. Tea/coffee complimentary.
    We are 600 meters from the beach with Kahurangi and Abel Tasman National Parks at your exploration doorstep. This caravan is located on the same property as Oasis Omarama - Permaculture Glamping (also listed on Air BnB as one glamping tent). We can accomodate larger groups with the caravan and the glamping tent or this can be perfect for a bit of space from the kids (or the in-laws). Discounts can be offered for bookings of both the Glamping Tent and the caravan together. Please contact me. You will relax in your own self-contained zone in lush surroundings right next to our stream. The caravan is also nearest to the road/driveway but this is a local road with very little traffic, just a few friendly neighbours. You will be close to nature with very basic amenities, but everything you need (bring your own towel if possible). This is a not a 5-star accomodation, but a humble kiwiana experience. There is an outdoor kitchen set up that is complete with all you need to cook up a feast. The kitchen is covered with a tarp roof but it is outside, so during rain it does get a bit wet (there are no walls). There are also spiderwebs given that this is an outdoor set up and I can in no way keep them out. There is a small fridge in the caravan as well. Tea and coffee goodies are complimentary. There is a small oil-fin heater in the caravan and an electric blanket on the double bed. As it's a small space, It's cosy as in there with the heater on. There is power to the caravan to charge gadgets. We (your hosts) also live on the property about 70 meters from the caravan area. There are lots of trees and greenery between the dwellings so plenty of privacy. Again, there is only 1 caravan and 1 glamping tent on the property and the caravan is in it's own self-contained separate zone. We also often have abundant fruit and produce and certain times of year that we love to share with our guests. Let Nature surround and embrace you. Please Be prepared to be close to nature. If you cannot pee outside please do not book this accomodation 😊. At night it is easier to pee outside in the bush then walk the 25 meters to the loo. The outdoor shower and compost loo are a short stroll away (about 25 meters). If you are not comfortable with composting toilets or a hot beautiful outdoor shower then we recommend you book elsewhere. The Caravan comfortably accommodates 2 adults, with space for up to 2 additional children or adults, making it the perfect family nature holiday getaway. All extra guests (including children) requiring a bed to be made up will be an additional $15 per night. Please add additional guests when making your booking. Also please note that these are caravan size beds so they run a bit small. They are NOT full size beds. Please bring your own towels and if you have more than 2 guests a sleeping bag or blanket could be handy. We have extra bedding but it can get cool at night. Pets are allowed with prior approval and must sleep outside of the caravan. Pets will be charged an extra cleaning fee of $15 to be paid in cash. We look forward to hosting you and sharing our wee slice of paradise! Again prepare to be close to nature with basic facilities. This beautiful and incredible land has been created and managed as a full Permaculture organic garden and self-sufficiency lifestyle block. Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive systems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is the harmonious integration of the landscape with the people which provides their food, energy, shelter and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way. Permaculture integrates people into Nature's design. Spending time here allows you to be embraced and nurtured by this natural design. You can be at one with the elements as you enjoy your homegrown breakfast with the sun shining on you. We live on half an acre of luscious soil with our very own stream which runs year round. We aim to grow as much of our own food as possible. We have fruit and nut trees: peach, apple, plum, grape, hazelnut, walnut, avocado, lemon, macadamia, feijoa, fig, kiwifruit, mandarin, orange, pear, tamarillo....We also have our own chickens for fresh eggs. We have beehives that pollinate the fruit and nut trees and provide us with the most delicious honey! As fruit is in season, you can pick your own straight from the tree for the BEST-tasting, freshest fruit you have ever had. You can nibble your way through the gardens and enjoy a meditative sit on the sea view deck taking in the multitude of smells and sounds. You will lay your head to rest listening to a babbling stream gently lulling you to sleep. Abundant Native bird song will awake you in the morning within the natural rhythms of daybreak. We have tui, kereru, thrush, blackbird, bellbird, piwakawaka, weka, and more. The evening sun glows through the caravan and warms it throughout the day.
    We live across the street from our local Marae (Maori meeting place). We live in a quiet neighborhood and in a community of friendly, helpful, and caring people. Beautiful Pohara beach is just a 600 meter stroll away. The beach is an endless expanse of ever-changing beauty as the tide moves a great distance between high and low. It is a great place to walk, run, explore, swim, frolic, ride horses, fly a kite, kayak, ride a blo-kart, relax, read, or walk your dog. We even have our very own NZ Little Blue Penguins residing nearby, who are shy but very entertaining. The Tarakohe wharf is also only a 15-20 minute walk with great access to fishing, sailing and boating. There is ample rock climbing within walking distance all along the sea frontage. We are at the gateway to the top end of the Abel Tasman National Park (the quietest most untouched areas are up on the top end). There are endless pristine beaches to explore, kayak, or walk along, as well as waterfall and bush tracks. Some of Golden Bay's best restaurants are within walking distance, such as the San Souci Inn and Ratanui Lodge. For any easy inexpensive meal pick up some fish & chips or pizzas from the local takeaways at Pohara General Store. Aroha Health Spa just down the road provides a range of relaxing therapies and treatments to pamper you after a long day exploring :)

The caravan is cosy and there is plenty of space in the outside kitchen for cooking etc. Shanti and family are very friendly and came to check on us regularly but also respected our privacy. We would definitely stay again.

    Chloe2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • If you want a getaway - this is a great option. It’s a perfect opportunity to unplug as the wifi is only available in certain areas - embrace it. The outdoor shower was perfect - very peaceful. We only stayed for one night but you could definitely make this your home base for at least a few nights. Would stay again.

The caravan is best suited for a couple, or single but can sleep three people with the third being on the sofa - this would suit a child or very small adult. The bed will be made up and we supply pots & pans, plates, cutlery etc so you just need to bring yourselves. We also have a BBQ for you to use and there is an outdoor fire pit (winter only) which we totally recommend - its a great spot for star gazing. The site is nestled amongst the regenerating bush and has a nice view of the ocean. There is a walk you can take along the stream and at night there are glow worms. Wekas will wonder around the campsite and there is plenty of native birdlife. The caravan has its own hot outdoor shower hidden in the forest which is a pretty cool experience and a clean composting toilet. It is a 10-15 min walk to Pohara Beach, the local bars/restaurants and shops, and 10mins drive to takaka township.
    Pohara Valley has plenty of trees and birdlife and is a special place. It is close to the beaches and in a good position in which to explore other places in Golden Bay. Tata Beach is 5 mins drive away where there is fantastic kayaking. There are plenty of walks within half an hour drive such as Wainui Falls, Taupo Point, The Grove, The labryinth, Pupu Springs, Pupu Hyrdo, and Rawhiti Caves. It is on the way to Totaranui and the Abel Tasman National Park. Favourite beaches: Ligar Bay, Tata and Wainui Favourite walks: The Grove, Wainui Falls, Pupu Hydro Favourite restaurants: San Souci in Pohara Favourite cafe: Wholemeal cafe in Takaka Favourite day trip: Wharariki beach - cool landscapes, sand dunes and seal colony
  • Kim was very accommodating as my partner and I needed somewhere at kate notice for the night. The space was lovely and super cool for people who want to get out in the wilderness! The outdoor showing was amazing, I had a great time here

  • Amazing spot

    Flynn2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • If you are after some chilled time away in a relaxed environment this is the place to go. You get to sleep in a cute wee caravan surrounded by trees, take a nature shower while watching the fantails chase bugs above you and relax on the deck looking up at the stars. It is only about a 15 minute walk to the beach and about a 2 minute walk to the wee river that has glow worms. I loved staying here and would definitely stay again (next time when there isn't a fire ban so I can enjoy the fire heated bath).

    Jess2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Was such a lovely area and the caravan was awesome! ❤️

    Courtney2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely private hideaway with all the basic amenities to ensure a peaceful and relaxing break. The showers are so special!

    Nett2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Kim’s instructions are really clear and easy to follow. The caravan’s facilities are better than we expected. There is light and power. You can get phone connections hip the top of the hill before going down to the caravan parking spot. It’s wonderfully eco friendly. Everything is clean and charming and it is fun to have a hot bush shower and have the birds visit. We really loved it and so;pet well of the soft bed. Really nice.

    Anna2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had an absolutely amazing time at Kim’s place! The caravan was super cute! The view of the ocean in the morning was great. The glow worms and hot tub were just the icing on the cake! Would highly recommend this stay

    Natasha2019-11-30T00:00:00Z

  • 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
  • Lovely hosts, clean and tidy, highly recommended

    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😊

    Lucy2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Cahrlotte's place was simply amazing! The views were the best in Golden Bay. We we're blessed with many animal visits by the puppy, kitty and friendly chickens. What a treat! Best place I have stayed in Golden Bay so far! Also very roomy and comfortable bedding.

    Rebecca2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very beautiful and cozy cottage with stunning views of Takaka valley and a peaceful, perfect base to explore the coast and Abel Tasman Park. Very friendly and helpful hosts. Wish we could have stayed longer !!! Thank you for your hospitality!

    Dagmar2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great views. Hot shower. The road up was a bit rougher than expected (to be fair we did no prior research ) cozy comfy!

    Amanda2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Charlotte's bungalow is very well appointed. Quiet with breathtaking views of the valley. We strongly recommend it to explore the Takaka region and take advantage of Abel Tasman Park.

    Angelika2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great place to stay for our weekend exploring Golden Bay. Charlotte met us when we arrived and had great suggestions for things to do and places to eat. The living room is large with ample seating and the views and quiet setting are relaxing. A bit of a narrow gravel road to get there but we would definitely stay again!

    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
  • Jonny's place is an amazing space. Jonny and his family are so welcoming and kind The bungalow is gorgeous and clean and has a list of local attractions and recommendations.

    A beautiful day at our modern, private studio starts with morning coffee on our sunny deck. Then it's off to Golden Bay's numerous beaches or walks at various places such as pupu walkway, Wainui Falls, Rawhiti Cave and Kaituna Track just to name a few. Plus, don't forget your mountain bikes! World class riding a stones throw from Bloody Cool. Grill your favorite dish and enjoy wine while gazing out to the ocean and mountains beyond! Let's start all over again tomorrow.
    Large studio. Great space for a dance party!!
    Very quite
  • Simply amazing. Sheila was incredibly kind and accommodating and Bloody Cool is exactly that. Incredible views, close to Takaka’s restaurants and waking up to the rooster each morning was a treat. Top of our trip for sure, book Bloody Cool!!

    Douglas2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay at Bloody Cool. Like other reviewers, we loved the 3 walls of windows that look out on gorgeous views and amazing sunsets. We enjoyed breakfast at the picnic table while listening to the nature sounds. We especially appreciated Shiela's casual and welcoming hospitality; the apartment was open to us early since no one stayed the previous night, which we appreciated. We were quite sad to leave! Hearty 5 stars.

    Kyle2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Just WOW! The photos just cannot and do not do this place justice! We had an amazing stay here for 4 nights and wish it could have been longer. Everything was great and Sheila and Greg are perfect hosts. A real highlight stay of our 5 week South Island tour. Cannot recommend highly enough.

    Bev2020-01-11T00:00:00Z

  • Beautiful location! Amazing views from the hill top house!

    Daniel2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • Such amazing accommodation! The location affords a private, rural setting but you are just a short drive from everything you may need in Takaka as well as nearby beaches. Bloody Cool has great cooking facilities, is very spacious and perfect if you fancy staying in - it made for an easy and comfortable stay. The highlight hands down the breathtaking views from the huge wide windows - across farmland and over to the hills and coast. We will miss waking up to the most beautiful morning light and falling asleep under the stars. Thank you for sharing this slice of paradise with us.

    Kevin2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning place to stay !!! The cottage was clean and the heater did its job at night. No mosquitoes which was a surprise given the bush and beach environment. Steve is a lovely person to chat to and provided us with all the local information we needed. Amazing guy with his amazing place. Would definitely visit for a week atleast next time. 2 nights is not sufficient at all.

    Menka2020-03-11T00:00:00Z

    Karen2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Everything is included in the stay and although it is not the most luxurious stay, it is just wonderful. Clean and Steve is a great guy. Pohara was also exactly on the right side of the abel tasman track for us. Nice and quiet.

    Arjen2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Steve’s place in Pohara. The accommodation was in a beautiful peaceful location, close to Pohara beach.

    Sarah2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Steve’s place is great. Cottages spread out across a wide area, surrounded in trees and all beach facing. Birdsong in the mornings and evenings and a few dragonflies flitting around made this place very special. It is about a 5 minute walk to get down to Pohara beach. Great spots for jogging or cycling. We stayed with a baby who loved crawling around relaxing, and we loved the patio on our cottage for a few wines and dinner once she was asleep. Steve’s place is perfect for those wanting to stay close to the beach, yet not on it, and for those wanting a true kiwi-cabin experience. We loved it and only wished we had longer. Thanks Steve, we’ll be back!

    Nicky2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • The Sandcastle is a cracking little Bach style getaway, whether there for 1 night or 10. Tranquil bush like surroundings with plenty of wildlife. The gardens are peaceful with the communal area/pizza oven a great place to sit and meet the other guests, with a beer or wine and enjoy a pizza. This place really is a perfect little getaway. Steve the host is so easy going, a lovely guy to sit and have a yarn with. So passionate about his place and it’s surroundings, so helpful and always on hand to offer tips and advice on the local area. He seems to thrive from meeting new people and nothing is to much trouble. Respect the place, it’s surroundings and the other guests and I’m sure Steve would stop at nothing to add to the pleasure of your stay. I found our cottage to be clean, comfortable and had all of the amenities you would need whilst on a break. I did notice on reading the reviews, that some people were dis-satisfied with the condition of the cottages. I have to stress that this place is a “Bach” style accommodation, as such you will see the odd cobweb and a couple of dead flies, but it is clear that Steve makes a good effort to keep the place clean. The beds in our cottage were both comfortable and the bedding was clean, clean towels were provided and the small kitchen had everything that we needed. If your expecting a 5 star hotel with room service and pristine conditions don’t bother. If you love the outdoors, kiwi style Bach accommodation, peace, tranquility, enjoy meeting lovely people and love Golden Bay, this is the place for you. If you fancy the pizza oven fired up, I’d recommend you give Steve notice before you get there, bring along your toppings and Steve does the rest for you. I’m not a huge pizza fan, but this is an experience I would thoroughly recommend. I will definitely return here with my family The first opportunity we have. We have family in Golden Bay and always somewhere to stay, but this is a place not to be missed. We had a family member with us from the UK, who might I add is more of a city hotel type. He loved his time here, at one with nature, surrounded by lovely folk. Thank you Steve, our time with you was great, way better than expected. We look forward to returning. Kris, Nelson.

    Kris2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Throughly enjoyed our stay at Sandcastle! Steve was very hospitable and along with the cute cottage being so close to Pohara beach he offered to cook us pizzas for dinner. Which was lovely! Highly recommend and will be back.

    Glamping (Luxury Camping) in a bountiful Permaculture garden with over 50 fruit & nut trees. Enjoy a private & peaceful Glamping Tent with comfortable Queen bed amongst the gardens, flowers, trees, native birds, chickens & bees. You will relax in your own self-contained zone in lush surroundings right next to our stream. Only one tent on the property. Let Nature Embrace you! We are 600 meters from the beach with Kahurangi and Abel Tasman National Parks at your exploration doorstep.
    The very newly Re-vamped Glamping zone is ready to GO! Come enjoy some luxury camping like you have never experienced before!. This custom tent has been built upon a deck, has an insulated wooden Eucalyptus floor, and natural Lawson Cypress internal timber framing. The internal tent is 3m by 5m with a 2m covered verandah area. The deck and tent enjoy plentiful sunlight! It's just 3 meters to the outdoor shower/toilet facilities. There are 2 large windows on either side a BIG front door which opens up on the deck all complete with bug mesh screens. Dream away in a the comfy Queen bed complete with electric blankets should you need them on chilly nights. There is a futon sofa within the tent that pulls out to a double bed for up to 2 additional guests. There is an overhead Infrared Heater that warms the tent to cosy as. If you are only 2 guests and you need both beds set up so you can each have your own, then I will be charging an extra $20 cleaning fee for your stay. There is no way for me to put this into Air BnB settings so I am stating it here. This can be paid in cash upon arrival. There are tea and coffee facilities and goodies provided as part of your stay. Kitchen gear is also supplied should you decide to cook in our covered outdoor kitchen area. Come with an open mind and be ready to connect to Earth and nature. Enjoy our slice of Golden Bay Heaven! The Glamping Tent is located on the same property as Humble Kiwiana Caravan (also listed on Air BnB). We can accomodate larger groups with the caravan and the tent. This can be perfect for a bit of space from the kids (or the in-laws). Discounts can be offered for bookings of both the Tent and the caravan together. We (your hosts) also live on the property about 35 meters from the Tent area. There are lots of trees and greenery between the dwellings so plenty of privacy. Again, there is only 1 tent on the property and a caravan in it's own self-contained separate zone. We also often have abundant fruit and produce and certain times of year that we love to share with our guests. This beautiful and incredible land has been created and managed as a full Permaculture organic garden and self-sufficiency lifestyle block. Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive systems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is the harmonious integration of the landscape with the people which provides their food, energy, shelter and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way. Permaculture integrates people into Nature's design. Spending time here allows you to be embraced and nurtured by this natural design. You can be at one with the elements as you enjoy your breakfast with the sun shining upon you in the outdoor picnic area. We live on half an acre of luscious soil with our very own stream which runs year round. We aim to grow as much of our own food as possible. We have fruit and nut trees: peach, apple, plum, grapes, nashi, hazelnut, walnut, avocado, lemon, macadamia, feijoa, fig, kiwifruit, mandarin, orange, and pear. We have our own chickens for fresh eggs. We have beehives that pollinate the fruit and nut trees and provide us with the most delicious honey! As fruit is in season, you can pick your own straight from the tree for the BEST-tasting, freshest fruit you have ever had. You can nibble your way through the gardens and enjoy a meditative sit on the sea view deck taking in the multitude of natural smells and sounds. The Glamping Tent is a professionally designed and manufactured 5 by 3 meter canvas tent with a 2 meter covered verandah. You will lay your head to rest next to a babbling stream as the sound of the water gently lulls you to sleep. Abundant Native bird song will awake you in the morning within the natural rhythms of daybreak. We have tui, kereru, thrush, blackbird, bellbird, piwakawaka, weka, kea, and more. The morning and evening sun glow through the tent and warm it throughout the day. There is a large main door and 2 windows, all complete with insect screens. Your Glamping tent includes a Queen size bed, chairs, shelves, dresser, mini-fridge, futon couch, as well as, electricity providing charging facilities if necessary. There is an electric blanket on the bed for extra warmth should you need it. There is a futon couch that pulls out to a double bed for additional guests. It MAY be possible to add an extra mattress onto the floor beside the queen bed for a 5th person/kid, but it would be pretty tight. Tea and coffee making facilities and goodies are offered as part of your Glamping experience. The Glamping Tent very comfortably accommodates 2 adults, with space for up to 2 additional children or adults, making it the perfect family nature holiday getaway. You may also want to consider booking our 'Humble Kiwiana Caravan' for additional guests/kids. All extra guests within the tent (including children) requiring a bed to be made up will be an additional $20 per night. Please add additional guests when making your booking. Pets are allowed with prior approval and must sleep outside of the tent. We look forward to hosting you and sharing our wee slice of paradise!
    We live across the street from our local Marae (Maori meeting place). We live in a quiet neighborhood and in a community of friendly, helpful, and caring people. Beautiful Pohara beach is just a 600 meter stroll away. The beach is an endless expanse of ever-changing beauty as the tide moves a great distance between high and low. It is a great place to walk, run, explore, swim, frolic, ride horses, fly a kite, kayak, ride a blo-kart, relax, read, or walk your dog. We even have our very own NZ Little Blue Penguins residing nearby, who are shy but very entertaining. The Tarakohe wharf is also only a 15-20 minute walk with great access to fishing, sailing and boating. There is ample rock climbing within walking distance all along the sea frontage. We are at the gateway to the top end of the Abel Tasman National Park (the quietest most untouched areas are up on the top end). There are endless pristine beaches to explore, kayak, or walk along, as well as waterfall and bush tracks. Some of Golden Bay's best restaurants are within walking distance, such as the San Souci Inn and Ratanui Lodge. For any easy inexpensive meal pick up some fish & chips or pizzas from the local takeaways at Pohara General Store. Aroha Health Spa just down the road providing a range of relaxing therapies and treatments to pamper you after a long day exploring :)
  • Magical place that feels and looks like paradise! So happy there was a minimum stay of 2 nights as we didnt wanna leave at all. Shanti was away for a few days when we stayed in her little piece of glamping heaven but left us clear instructions and we felt very welcome because of this. Amazing permaculture garden and very cute cat and rabbit.

    Marceliene2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very cool and different bnb, it really is glamping. Beautiful yard with vegetables and apple trees. Having a fridge was great and the outdoor cooking area worked great for dinner and breakfast. Only negative I could say is not being able to connect to wifi.

    Nenad2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Shanti has created a very unique glamping style experience. Very comfortable glamping tent with a few creature comforts of home. The outdoor shower was a lovely experience & nodding off to sleep to the sound of a running stream was very relaxing. This is a place to switch of from technology as there is no TV & very limited phone service. It forces you to enjoy your surroundings.

    Melissa2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic experience! Learned a great deal on sustainable living and where I need to improve. Fun outdoor kitchen and open facilities.

    Jordan 2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is the most special place. Perfect for an off-grid escape but with lots of little luxuries that make it feel homely and super comfortable. The outdoor shower and kitchen were amazing and we loved being able to sit on the deck to watch the sunsets. It was the perfect base for exploring Abel Tasman too. Thank you Shanti & Isla - this is permaculture paradise and we feel so lucky to have experienced it! x

    Sian2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay at Shanti’s little piece of paradise and perfect place to prep for the Abel Tasman walk (40 min drive to Totaranui). Garden and animals were amazing! Outdoor shower was epic.

    Peggy2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • My sister and I spent a lovely 3 days on Shanti’s amazing land surrounded by her beautiful trees and gardens . The tent was comfy and well organised with lots of helpful extras ( torches, anti mosquito coils, local guidebooks and information ) and an excellent supply of tea and coffee. The brook running by creates a very restful atmosphere and you really feel you are away from the bustle of everyday life. The outdoor shower was amazing and we enjoyed the outdoor kitchen ( admittedly the great weather helped) and sitting up at the ‘look out’ with the views over the land. Shanti was very warm and welcoming and we also enjoyed meeting her daughter , her beautiful cat and a variety of chickens.....

    Mary2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Enjoy peace and happiness with limited internet in a simple charming permaculture surrounding - perfect for relaxing and as a basis for the Abel Tasman North entry. Loved all of it, incl. the water stream all night long!

It’s about 8 minutes walk from the beach and if you have a car there are some amazing places to explore during the day. I didn’t miss having wifi- it was very peaceful and perfect to relax with a book.

    This cosy wee kiwi cottage is nestled in a quiet secluded valley away from all the hustle and bustle of the busy modern life. One minute walk to our local Pohara beach, tennis courts etc. Swimming beaches, rock climbing walls, fishing, diving and the Able Tasman NP are very close. Cafes, store and bars are at Pohara. The Takaka township is only 10 minutes drive for all your other shopping. The Golden Bay region is loaded with endless things to do and places to explore and connect with nature.
    Here are a few reasons why the organic cottage is a great place to stay. You will be snug in our cottage which is well insulated throughout with some double glazed windows and wool insulation all round. Plenty of wood for the fire (not usually lit in summer here but your welcome). We have a selection of organic fruit trees to pick from to add to your breakfasts, there is plenty of organic greens and veges in the garden to add to your meals. In the back corner of the poroperty above the limestone rocks is an ancient Northern Rata tree which attracts Tui, Kereru and plenty of other bird life which will be music to your ears in the mornings. Im am a Zenthai Shiatsu practitioner so there may be an opportunity to book a bodywork session with me. For the more adventureous there is a fire bath on the bamboo grove that has water to it for star lit night gazing.... just a great place we call home.
    Friendly and peaceful

    Tata Beach, New Zealand

    Newly built and nestled on the hill between beautiful Wainui bay and Totaranui beaches, right next to the famous Abel Tasman National park, this little bush cottage offers outstanding views and privacy amongst NZ native bush. Totos Bush Cottage is an earth building, entirely off the grid, crafted by ourselves from sustainable, natural materials, a place where comfort meets paradise!
    Totos Bush Cottage is newly built and is an eco-friendly building constructed with a "back to nature" spirit where guests can feel part of the natural surroundings, with comfort. It is made of clay from the site itself and straw, using an 10 000 years old technique called cob, which many pioneers employed when settling in New Zealand. Located on a hillside amongst the native bush that is home to a variety of native birds, like the reclusive south island Tomtit, Bellbirds, Wekas, grey warbler, etc. Wether you wish to recline under the shade of a tree fern and let nature massage your worries away, visit some of the many delights the Northern Abel Tasman National park, the choice is all yours. The main building is a 10m² bedroom and small lounge area offering exceptional views of beautiful Wainui bay and the sea beyond. There is a simple outside kitchen with a stove top, little bar fridge, coffee plunger. There is no oven or microwave but there is a gaz barbecue! The shower, and the compost toilets are detached, a few meters away. Enjoy the lovely outside bath from which one can take in the stunning views or the amazing night sky. The car park is at 2 minutes walk from the cottage. Our little Totos Café & Pizzeria, specialised in wood-fired pizza, with beer, wine, smoothies and more, is 2 minutes walk away, with great views over the sea and the bush. There is free limited WiFi, and flush toilets. During the peak season it's open from 10am to 6pm, (pizza from 11am to 5:30pm) and closed on Friday. It is also an earth building entirely built, decorated and operated by us. Although there is a short walk from our little café, Totos bush cottage is a very private and quiet place, perfect to recharge in the middle of nature with awesome views.
    Please note that the listing automatically indicate a location at Tata beach: this isn't the case, but we can't remove it: we are located further than Tata, in Wainui Bay, on the hill toward Totaranui campground in the Abel Tasman National park (look for Totos Café & Pizzeria), 35 min drive from Takaka. Being right here in the middle of the native bush means there are many fantastic beaches and bush walks close buy in the Abel Tasman National park: From Totos Bush Cottage you can park at Pigeon Saddle (5min drive away) and walk the Northern (and nicest!) part of the Abel Tasman for a full day walk. Our favorites short walks are the walk from Totaranui to Anapai beach, and the little forest walk among big old rimus, ratas, miro and others native trees, up to lookout rock, around 15 min from Pigeon saddle (Inland track) with beautiful views over the native bush and the sea, a real forest bath! The walk from Wainui Bay to Taupo point, a previous Maori Pa (fortified village) is a great way to spend half a day and enjoy the pristine area. There are lovely waterfalls called Wainui falls just down the road (less than 10 min drive away), which is among one of the best short walks in Golden Bay. So much to do! The nearest settlement is Pohara, at 25 min drive, were you can pick up basic supplies at the convenience store, and there is a selection of cafés and restaurants, a golf course, a health spa, and more. For fuel and supermarket shopping, Takaka is the nearest main town in Golden Bay, at 35 min drive, with many cool places to check out for café, tea room, chocolates, food, craft shopping, go to the village theatre, etc. You also have the great possibility to indulge with hand-crafted wood-fired pizza, cold beers, wine, iced coffees and other refreshments at our little place Totos Café & Pizzeria, just 2 min walk away! Aside from hikes and beautiful beaches around our place, there are a lot of activities to do in Golden Bay: kayaking, horse riding, salmon fishing, fishing charters, flight in a little plane, golf, many cool cafés, etc. If you want to know more you can ask us at your arrival but also visit the website of the Golden Bay visitor center: www.goldenbaynz.co.nz
  • Crian & Carole have created a lovely comfortable off-grid place in a beautiful area. They were very responsive to our needs as we were on foot.

    Anne2020-03-12T00:00:00Z

    Stacey2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Unique place to stay, really close to Totaranui. The view is breathtaking and the interior is really cosy ! We did not lack anything, even got to use the BBQ which was very nice. Crian is friendly and was eager to share his tips about the hike we were going the next day. Totally recommended !

    Florian2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Just you and the nature... This was one of our best Airbnb experiences in the last few years. It is a secluded cottage located on the hill. The views are simply astonishing both day and night. 20 minute drive will take you to the Abel Tasman National Park with its beaches and hiking options. Last, but not least, Carole & Crian's cafe is a pearl in the jungle. Great coffee, amazing views and delicious pizza. Highly recommended to everyone, who enjoys spending the night surrounded by the jungle and the stars. Many thanks to Carole & Crian for creating such a special place.

    Maksim2020-02-25T00:00:00Z

    Tata Beach, Tasman, New Zealand

    Your private, self-contained cottage is a mere forty steps from Pohara Beach, one of Golden Bay's largest and most beautiful beaches. The cosy cottage has a separate bedroom with ensuite and a kitchenette suitable for light cooking only.
    Comfy, modern cottage with separate bedroom and living area literally right across the street from the beach. Pohara, Golden Bay, is superb. From Pohara you can explore the entire Bay, including the Abel Tasman National Park. Pohara is eight kilometres from Takaka and is ringed by steep hills. Just around the corner is the Port Tarakohe marina where the mussel boats operate from, and Jacques Cousteau's old boat serves fresh coffee. The deep water Tata Beach is just around the corner, too. It is a summer of swimming, kayaking and boating,
    Nestled between Abel Tasman National Park and Kahurangi National Park Golden Bay is far and away one of the most scenic areas in New Zealand with kayaking, tramping, rock climbing, swimming and much, much more. Takaka has recently been declared the sunniest spot in New Zealand. Plan on spending at least 3-4 days at Golden Bay., just to hit the high spots. There is lots to see and do and fewer days will mean missing some stunning geography.
  • Comfortable space, exactly as described. The beach is just 1-min walk away with great views, and a lovely swimming beach just 5-10mins drive away. The neighbourhood is quiet and friendly, with a cafe and shops within walking distance of the house. Try to stay for 3 full days or more, as there is so much to explore! We wish we’d done so!!

    Anushia2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is a nice clean place, convenient to Pohara restaurants and a good jump off for day trips to Tata beach and Abel Tasman.

    Seth2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • What an ideal little beach cabin! Everything you need for a relaxing stay and a perfect location just steps from a gorgeous beach. Dan is a gracious host and shared many suggestions for places to visit in the area, including important tips like knowing how the tide will affect when to go. Fresh ground coffee and orange juice were waiting for us. We really enjoyed Dan’s beautiful photographs on the walls and his humorous selection of reading material. Highly recommend staying here while in Golden Bay.

    Evelien2019-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • After a whirlwind tour of the north island we wanted to be able to kick back and relax with a home base for local day tripping. We were not disappointed with our little beach side cottage. Daan was welcoming and sent us in the right direction whenever we asked for input. Pohara Beach is the perfect place for exploring the Golden Bay Area and we spent many enjoyable days here. The cottage was well appointed and perfect for our needs.

    You will wake to the sounds of birdsong and will fall asleep to the sounds of ... silence. It's very peaceful and serene here. We have unlimited wifi and you're welcome to use it, but please be aware that mobiles (calls and texts) can be very temperamental, as coverage in Pohara is limited.
    Separate studio located in the sleepy seaside town of Pohara. It is 400 metres (or about a 4 minute walk to the beach) and has off street parking for your car/RV (in front of the garage). Your studio has just been refurbished and is clean, stylish and equipped with modern furniture and appliances. You have your own patio area and limestone wall (with nice views out to the sea from the top). Please note that I do have two West Highland terriers who are friendly and inquisitive, but who remain in their own section of the yard. The kitchenette has a toaster, kettle and microwave but no cooking facilities. There is a full-size fridge (with ice) that will often have a few treats in it. Coffee and tea are supplied, along with jam, peanut butter, Nutella, margarine, tomato sauce, salad dressing and mayo. An additional outdoor hot shower is available outside your front door :)
    You are surrounded by bush, caves and beaches... rent kayaks off Tata Beach through Golden Bay Kayaks (7 min drive) or explore stunning Totaranui (35 min drive). We are ten minutes from Takaka by car or an easy walk along the beachside path to pubs/restaurants/take-aways and a dairy that sells beer/wine. Pack your rackets because there is a fabulous tennis court at the bottom of the road (3 min walk) where you can play a game and take in the beautiful seascape at the same time :)
  • A very tidy place, well suited for a couple with a very spacious bathroom. Very quiet and peaceful. Lisa is a great host.

  • We stayed at Lisa's home for 3 nights recently. What can I say, superb host, lovely clean studio, extra touches like, cheese and wine, chocolate, ice creams and Lisa even gave us our own little chocolate cake she baked! Great at comms, and happy to chat personally. The 2 dogs, Maisie and Fergus are adorable and friendly. All in all I highly recommend staying here, you won't be disappointed at all

  • This is lovely cottage on a beautiful piece of property just minutes by foot from the beach and by car from some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world. Lisa is a relaxed and generous host, and her cottage is pristine, well-appointed and private, with its own outdoor seating areas and views. The bed is very comfortable and the light in the afternoons and evenings gorgeous. Highly recommended for a visit to Pohara Beach and surrounding areas, including the Te Waikoropupū Springs, which are a short and easy drive from the cottage.
