The Farmhouse was built in the 1950s and has been added to and improved since then. It is above the beach and has sweeping views over Golden Bay and the Tata Headland, and views of the Tata Islands through the trees. Set on 6 acres, the house has a gracious relaxed feel to it and the extensive planting, orchard and gardens give a restful ambience. The gardens are a magnet for birds, with bellbird, tui, kereru and quail frequent visitors.

At the end of the drive, Ligar Bay awaits with the sheltered and safe lagoon area perfect for kids to swim and kayak. Tata Beach and the boat ramp are a few minutes away by car or a pleasant walk.

Ligar Bay is a short 5 minutes to Pohara (general store, takeaways and cafes) and 15 minutes (12km) to Takaka. Abel Tasman National Park is 9 kms away with the beautiful beaches of Totaranui and Awaroa.

    Fantastic place for a family holiday. We had 3 children under 3 and it worked perfectly, with plenty of space for us all. Wonderful location and setting for a relaxing week.

  • Wonderful Golden Bay bach

    Wonderful Golden Bay bach. Far exceeded our expectations. It was the perfect home-away-from-home for two families. The house was roomy and comfortable with plenty of space for meals and relaxing after a day at the beach. We loved listening to the birds and looking out over the bay. The house is perhaps the best bach in the bay. It has so much character and is well stocked with books and games to suit all ages. Highly recommended. We can't wait to come back.
