Milnthorpe Cottage is a traditional NZ family Bach. One of approx 20 residences located in the Milnthorpe revegetation Project Para Para inlet GB.The bach sits on the cliff top nestled into native bush with views overlooking the estuary and west to the NW Nelson ranges and E to Para Para beach Separation Point.The Bach has direct and easy access to private beaches via it's own cliff path and direct access to great swimming and many miles of walking tracks that make up the Milnthorpe Park.We have recently added an extension to the bach but this is for family use only ,sorry about that folks. However for your use there are two 2 bedrooms and a large sleeping loft .Most of the facilities are recently upgraded with new kitchen and whiteware.There is a single bathroom with shower and adjoining WC.

Although the loft is completely surrounded by rails etc we as owners do not consider it suitable for kids under 4 yrs. The Lounge Dining and Kitchen are all open plan and the outside is surrounded with extensive decks allowing many options for entertaining or just sitting and enjoying the bird life,views and sunshine.

Milnthorpe is just 5 Kms from Collingwood and 15 Kms from Takaka and is ideally located to enjoy all the Arts, Crafts,Restaurants,National Parks and other attractions of "The Bay"

  • Absolutely loved our time at this property

    Absolutely loved our time at this property. Fantastic location for exploring all of the local Golden Bay attractions. Bach is spacious and has everything you need to be comfortable. Beautiful view through the trees to the estuary and sea beyond. Hope to return.

    Beautiful location enjoyed the views, going down to the beach and kajaking in the inlet. Would of liked to stay longer, maybe next time. House amenities good; kitchen had everything we needed, lounge area works well, beds comfortable and washing machine appreciated after spending three days tramping. With 6 people staying there was a bit of pressure on the bathroom which was complicated at times as there was no door on the toilet which is accessed through the bathroom (minor hassle).
