Te Kakau is a three bed roomed house just five minutes walk from the Takaka Village. You have access to a large completely private back garden with Te Kakau Stream running through it.

We are one of the only PET FRIENDLY accomodations in Golden Bay, dont leave your best friend at home bring them along! This really is your home away from home.

Feed the vibrant birdlife or the local eels from the bridge - This is a small, springfed stream, which flows just to the west of Takaka’s Commercial Street and into the Takaka River. It was a small Maori eel fishery area and was an outdoor playground for local children to boat, fish and swim in.

The water supply to the house is from a bore and so you will be drinking some of the most pristine water for which Golden Bay is famed, just out of Takaka are the famed Te Waikoropupu Springs which are well known for their crystal clear pools unseen anywhere else in the world.

You are also within stones throw to some of the best beaches in the country, golden sands and wild life abound. There is something for everyone in the Golden Bay no matter what your interest.

  • Golden bay is a beautiful area

    Golden bay is a beautiful area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Te Kakau. The property is in a lovely setting next to farmland and a stream, its very conveniently located within walking distance to the shops and cafes. We found it to be very well equipped and loved having the fire to keep you warm if the evenings got chilly. Wouldn't ask for anything more!
