This area has a number of potters and artists studios, Farewell Spit tours, Wharariki Beach and the Heaphy Track.

Wharaiki Beach - This is by far one of the coolest beaches in New Zealand ! Huge rock formations, huge sand hills, huge caves, cliffs, dunes , white sand and baby seals . The trail is amazing through farms and beautiful hills . You can even meet peacocks in the car park!

Farewell Spit - Farewell Spit is New Zealand’s longest sand spit (25 km) and a nature reserve. It is an internationally-renowned bird sanctuary with over 90 bird species recorded in the area.

Heaphy Track - One of New Zealand’s nine great walks. Many people choose to walk only to the first or second huts on the track instead of walking its entire length which have toilets and running-water facilities. The Heaphy Track, one of New Zealand’s “Great Walks” is now a Great Ride. Mountain Bikers are now permitted by the Department of Conservation to ride the Heaphy Track between May 1 and September 30.

Takaka township is only a 15-20 minutes drive where you will find lots of shops for retail therapy, cafes, grocery store and markets on Saturdays.

  • The house is fantastic and very flexible

    The house is fantastic and very flexible. We had 10 people in the house and never felt like we were on the top of each others.

  • Para Stunner was a beautiful property it has a lovely family feel

    Para Stunner was a beautiful property it has a lovely family feel. There was nothing that wasn't thought of. A stunning outlook, plenty of room for larger families. So many areas for relaxing and entertaining. Two lounges creating a family area and a chill out zone! Lovely outdoor areas. Good bedding configurations. Close to the beach and neighbouring towns. We had a lovely stay. We would highly recommend this property. A well loved property that lives up to its name... Para Stunner!!
