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"

    Thanks for sharing your little slice of paradise with us! So very peaceful, beautiful view (great sunrises!) Bach was relaxed and comfy, equipped with all the essentials. Minimal technology was great - we were there to relax and explore the surroundings not watch giant flat screen tv ;) Such a peaceful location, yet still really close to lots of attractions. A lovely spot - we didn't want to leave!

    Beautiful location. For a family of 6, this house was clean and larger that we anticipated. Looking forward to visiting again!

    The Bach is situated in a pretty, well kept garden above the beach which is accessed by a short path. Beautiful views and plenty of space.
