  • Gorgeous location, on the beach and by the river.
  • Fun old farmhouse with a relaxed cosy feel.
  • Miles of beach to explore! This coast is truly special.

A cosy historic homestead nestled in the sand dunes between the Tasman Sea and the Paturau River. Perfect place for a family reunion or a whitebaiting getaway with a group of friends, and there is plenty to do for the young and the old: miles of gorgeous beach to walk or ride on, fishing, surfing and wind surfing, biking... or you might just choose to relax and read a book. Paturau is good for the body and good for the soul.

And, just completed, a beautiful timber kitchen which makes cooking at Paturau a joy.

  • Great location to unwind from work and modern life! The only comment...

    Great location to unwind from work and modern life! The only comment we would make is that a clothes dryer would have been great. It rained the entire time we were there (so much wet clothes) and with a baby boy washing clothes was essential ;)

  • The most magical temporary home I've ever had the pleasure of staying...

    The most magical temporary home I've ever had the pleasure of staying at. The location was like a dream, just a short walk from the garden to the wild beach, loved watching the sunset from the private surfboard seat and playing on the swing and table tennis. You must go!

  • Amazing spot in the paradise of West Coast Golden Bay

    Amazing spot in the paradise of West Coast Golden Bay. House is a delight and filled with history. Very clean, warm and heaps of bedding. Excellent spot to take children. Huge big section that is well fenced and safe. 1 minute walk to the beach for walking, fishing or simply just being in the moment. A must visit and stay to go on anyone's bucket list :).
