Description

  • Experience this unique stylish accommodation set in nature.
  • Beautiful, ever changing views of the valley and mountains beyond.
  • A short nature walk to the swimming hole in the Takaka river.

Minimum stay 4 nights (shorter stays may be possible if we have back to back bookings - please enquire.) Come and relax in our peaceful and private paradise. Sit in the garden on the 'Flintstone' deck with mountain and valley views, listening to tui and bellbirds or walk the stunning forest loop track to the river...

A beautiful hand-crafted 7m diameter yurt and a restored vintage housetruck are both stylish and comfortable

Both accommodations are unique in their appeal, funky, handmade and memorable, linked together with a rustic slabbed wooden deck and small detached bathroom.

The 15 acre organic surrounds have various friendly animals, a short (700m) downhill mountain bike track, swings and swimming hole. In season help yourself to fruit from the orchards, and fresh greens from the wee garden.

Takaka town is a short and scenic 12 minute drive, with the array of beaches just beyond

Special conditions: Smoking in outside areas only. Toilet is a composting toilet (no maintenance or management needed!). May not suit elderly, very young or disabled persons as some stairs in the truck, undulating deck surface, and outside bathroom. Owners have an old friendly collie dog who may come to say hello!

    We love Te Paamu - so unique and full of character and yet also really well appointed. The yurt and the house truck were both super-comfortable and beautifully presented and the surrounding decking and garden made for an enchanting environment to relax in. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Te Paamu to anyone who is wanting a fabulous place to stay in Golden Bay

    Te Paamu was a really special, and out of the ordinary, place to stay :-) The location is gorgeous, and we highly recommend taking the path down to the river to jump of the rope swing!
