Description

  • A wonderful bach that is ideal for families with kids and you can even bring the dog!
  • Ketti has over 100 Metres of secluded beachfront at the end of the large, sunny, mature garden.
  • Ketti is close to many fabulous beaches, fishing spots, historic attractions and walking tracks.

If you are looking for a relaxing holiday, Ketti cottage is the place for you. It is a wonderful bach that is ideal for families with kids and dogs. You can relax on the deck while the kids explore the large garden or the neighbouring DOC land. You can listen to the sound of the sea at the end of the lawn (around high tide), or the native bird calls in the trees around you. There are breathtaking views over Farewell Spit, Abel Tasman Park, Golden Bay and on a clear day, Mt Egmont.

If you are feeling more energetic, the Heaphy Track is lying in wait, or a maybe a more sedate trip to Farewell Spit, Pupu Springs, Whanganui Inlet or the simply breathtaking Wharariki Beach would be in order. All being an easy drive from the cottage.

Ketti is a well equipped 2/3 bedroom waterfront bach nestled in over an acre of sunny, mature gardens. The cottage has over 100 metres of secluded beachfront at the end of the garden, where at high tide the water laps up the sea wall. No road to cross to get to the sea makes it safe for the kids. Plenty of fishing, floundering, and cockle hunting to be had. The main Pakawau swimming beach is just a few minutes walk.

For the kids, Ketti provides many games and puzzles, endless exploring in the gardens, and a safe beach on which to play.

Pakawau is only 10-15 minutes from Collingwood, for delicious pies, your groceries, coffee fix and petrol, and a 25-30 minute hop to Takaka with its market, plentiful cafes, restaurants, and cinema. The Naked Possum and Mussel Inn are within easy driving distance and the Old School House Cafe a 5-10 minute walk.

Golden Bay is a simply wonderful place to relax, friendly people, fantastic views, and yes the weather is better!

  • Waterfront not beachfront

    Waterfront not beachfront. It is a 2 bdr place but not 3 as the 3rd bedroom is the 5sqm entry way. Be prepared to clean on arrival i.e. curtains, windows and removed all the cobwebs. House appeared neglected. Bring own pans (pan warped). Cups, mugs and glasses well chipped. Recommend take your own. Bathroom might need upgrade - ask for photos. Unsatisfactory for the money paid as our annual holiday. Would look for alternate accommodation for a stay in this area. Lovely area to visit.

  • What a great location! This bach was a real highlight for us,...

    What a great location! This bach was a real highlight for us, we loved the spacious kitchen and garden and the beach right at our doorstep. It is really just 10 mins by car to the great beaches and cliffs of Farewell Split, so absolutely perfect for us as a family. Thanks for a wonderful, relaxing time, we would gladly return someday.
