This place was really private and peaceful. The outlook over Golden Bay was great-the sunrises and moonrises were a bonus. It was also fantastic to watch the tide come in and out over the flats from the deck or the picture window and to be able to hear the waves lapping at full tide. This a great central location for visiting either south to Takaka or north to Farewell Spit area. The facilities are adequate-after all it is an old bach but is remarkably warm and cosy and the fire is amazing.
