    Great quiet location for a stay in Golden Bay, only a short trip to Takaka for supplies, and handy for travel to Tata Beach, start of Abel TasmanTrack, or westwards to Pupu Springs/Mussel Inn/Collingwood/Heaphy Track/Farewell Spit

    The cottage was comfy, cosy and secluded, set in a beautiful orchard with views over the fields and mountains nearby, but not too far from Takaka and activities in the area. Loved our stay, and hoping we come back one day. Our only problem was the toilet seat which kept falling down on us.

    The batch had everything we needed. We enjoyed the extensive VHS collection and the yummy organic fruit! A few minor things were a little annoying though. The fridge half froze the food we had in it, the toilet seat wouldn't stay up and the shower went hot and cold.


    Thanks Hanna for the feedback. We have now taken care of the above issues and appreciate you letting us know.
