Bay Vista Bliss- with sea views over Golden Bay

 A lovely and comfortable property in a very nice location. The site on the hill provided a beautiful outlook over the bay and we enjoyed the walk up and down the hill to the cafe. A really enjoyable property which we will use again.

Subtropical Organic Farm - Bay Cottage

 The cottage was comfy, cosy and secluded, set in a beautiful orchard with views over the fields and mountains nearby, but not too far from Takaka and activities in the area. Loved our stay, and hoping we come back one day. Our only problem was the toilet seat which kept falling down on us.

 Location lovely, property and fittings well up to standard. I would have appreciated some instruction in managing the digital water-heating controller, but maybe I'm more ignorant than most. 

Subtropical Organic Farm - Bay Cottage

 Quiet with delightful hosts. Location is great for going to all the special places in the area. Nice to wake up to the smell of the citrus trees just outside the window. Sit on the porch in the sun for breakfast and just enjoy the peace and quiet before spending the day looking around this wonderful part of New Zealand. Do not miss a trip to Farewell Spit as it is an amazing place, quite unique.
