  • Te Kakau feels like home, spacious back yard perfectly located for exploring golden bay

Te Kakau is a three bed roomed house located on the main st of takaka just five minutes walk from the Village. You have access to a large completely private back garden with Te Kakau Stream running through it. This part of the property is not fenced so please monitor children by the creek.

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.

  • Fabulous location and central to all amenities

    Fabulous location and central to all amenities. Best of both worlds, town and country with plenty of room for families and children. Home was sunny, beautifully presented with lots of extras. High standard of cleanliness and lots of homely touches. Many thanks to Tamara and Doug for sharing your home.

    Everything you need is here; spotlessly clean and welcoming. It is perfectly located beside a lovely stream, and accessible to all the attractions of the area.
