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.

  • 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.

  • The Ligar Bay Farmhouse was wonderful

    The Ligar Bay Farmhouse was wonderful. A very comfortable home with plenty of room for our large family. The kitchen was well equipped and there are heaps of games, books and puzzles to keep you busy on inside days. The beach is at the bottom of the drive way and was fabulous for our young children. Tata beach is also a easy walk or a short drive. The location was perfect to Takaka and WainuiBay /Able Tasman Park. We will stay here again and recommend this house!

  • Great house with plenty of room

    Great house with plenty of room. Perfect for us as we had bbqs on the deck each night with extended family staying in the bay. Just across the road from the beach, great for kids. Thanks heaps!

  • The house and property were wonderful

    The house and property were wonderful. The sort of place that has wonderful surroundings to explore during kind weather and also plenty indoors (books, games, etc) to keep all the family entertained inside on not such nice days too. A great location with the beach literally down the drive and across the road. There is a dairy nearby.
