*Under new ownership as of November 2015*

Bay Cottage is located in a very tranquil - lush -subtropical setting on a 7ha certified organic orchard only 4km for Takaka and 2 minutes drive from the beach (or 20min walk). The cottage is self-contained and offers a kitchen and en suite built from native timber. If you want a get-away destination that offers close proximity to the township, beaches, and local restaurants yet serene and quiet this is the ideal setting.

*Since new ownership we have given the cottage a makeover with new fridge and toilet*

We run a few animals including shee, chickens, ducks and pigs.

The orchard is subtropical and offers a variety of fruit and nut trees including many South American species:

  • Lovely property, well presented

    Lovely property, well presented. Kitchen was rather basic (no oven, for example)."Small but perfectly formed"

  • The property is well constructed and nicely decorated

    The property is well constructed and nicely decorated. The bed is comfortable. The kitchen and shower room areas work well. The BBQ functions though slightly faulty. Improvements for us would be a slightly larger table outdoors; scissors in the kitchen area and some sort of mats at the bedsides for the mornings as flooring was very cold. Kitchen knives are a bit blunt. Location was lovely but not near the beach on foot. Weather was good and we enjoyed our stay. Bit pricey.

    A truly delightful place to stay - clean, tidy, very private, lovely kitchen, beautiful bathroom and the most comfortable bed. Linen, towels etc. were high quality. The peace and tranquillity was awesome - waking up to birdsong so wonderful. The cottage is a few kilometres from town, down a quiet country road and gave us a great opportunity to relax, enjoy a quiet drink in total peace. The cottage is far enough away from the main dwelling to give privacy. A beautiful spot.

    Peaceful setting, close to Takaka and surrounding beaches, also close to great mountain bikiing at Motutipi hill, nice deck and accomodation light and airy but also cosy.

  • The photo is deceptive

    The photo is deceptive. The hosts' drive way is right in front of the cottage and so for any privacy you need to close the curtains. The internet connection is very sporadic and almost nonexistent. There were no welcome fruit and vegetables as advertised. The write up of the cottage re the beach is deceptive. Whilst the beach may be some 200m away, you cannot see it, nor reach it by the property itself. You are required to drive to the beach via another road which takes some 5 minutes.
