  • Really enjoyed staying at The Caboose, it was very comfortable and cozy

    Really enjoyed staying at The Caboose, it was very comfortable and cozy. The fireplace was great for cold nights which warmed up the place super quick. We especially enjoyed the free eggs and milk, they even supplied plunger coffee. Close to everything e.g supermarket, shops, beach, Abel Tasman walks. We would definitely stay again! Thanks.

  • Amazing concept and well located between Takaka town and Pohara beach

    Amazing concept and well located between Takaka town and Pohara beach. The caboose is comfy. quirky and has EVERYTHING you need. They have gone to great lengths to provide all the nice touches to facilitate a "romantic getaway" : Great bed, secluded spot, self-contained, - an awesome OUTDOOR bath - I soaked in it for over an hour under the stars !! The only "less than Ideal" aspect, for us, was the outside composting toilet, but that is a matter of preference.

    Beautifully presented and clean. The outside bathroom was cleaned daily. It is situated close to everything but in a peaceful location.

    The Caboose is an adorable Bach, it's so quirky with the outdoor shower & bath. The garden with yummy fruit trees and such a peaceful, idyllic setting. I will definitely be back.
