Description

  • Delightful, spacious cottage on organic orchard
  • Very private (own access), sheltered and sunny yet within easy reach of many beaches
  • Stunning backdrop of limestone outcrops, nikau palms, citrus orchard and mature native trees.

Rock 'n Rata Cottage is on the 7 acre organic property of the historic Rocklands Homestead. Behind the cottage are mature citrus trees and guests may pick their own grapefruit for breakfast.

Well-equipped cottage, woody and warm. Log burner with firewood supplied. Most guests walk in the door and say how lovely it is.



The cottage has its own private driveway and is set against a backdrop of limestone outcrops, nikau palms and mature rata and totara trees. These and the huge pohutukawa and puriri trees behind the homestead attract many tuis, bellbirds and woodpigeons.

Cottage faces nor-west and gets all day sun. Rural and sea views across to the hills on the far side of Golden Bay. Very sheltered and private yet just 3 mins drive to Pohara Beach and 8 mins from Takaka township. Only a short drive further to Ligar Bay, Tata Beach and Wainui Bay. Less than a one hour drive and you'll be on Totaranui Beach or at the Awaroa Estuary where you can walk at low tide to Awaroa Beach.



Property is adjacent to the Grove Scenic Reserve, a rock and rata wonderland with a panoramic view of Golden Bay.



Rock 'n Rata Cottage is the perfect base for exploring the Abel Tasman and Kahurangi National Parks. The property has the X-factor and guests are constantly wowed by the unique setting.

  • Terrific location

    Terrific location. In the middle of the the orchard, with our own private access. The perfect place to relax and unwind, and close enough to both Takaka and the local beaches to make it the perfect place to put down some roots for a few days.

    Beautiful, secluded spot alongside the grapefruit orchard - the blossoms of which emitted an intoxicating fragrance throughout our entire stay! Extremely sheltered and hot being centrally located to all the beaches. One suggestion might be to invest in an outdoor table and umbrella as it would have been nice to eat meals outside. We would definitely visit again with our pooch and recommend to others.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks John. After recently completing the deck and bbq area an outdoor table is next on the list.
