5 stars. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the location is perfect for exploring Golden Bay and the Muse exceeded expectations. A beautiful and peaceful setting, very well appointed in all respects with wonderful hosts who went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Highly recommended.
We were delighted with Kotare Muse, it was very comfortable, well equipped and squeaky clean (which is a big tick in my book) and had lots of little personal touches like fresh flowers and home-made biscuits. Julie & Mark struck just the right balance between being friendly, informative and available, and being discreet. It was a great location to explore Abel Tasman National Park and the whole Golden Bay area. We stayed here in December and they even provided us with a Christmas tree !!
The property is beautifully kept and has everything you could possibly need for a great stay in Golden Bay. There is a brand new BBQ with a private deck and outdoor funiture we made the most of, enjoying dinner outside whilst watching the sun setting and playing the supplied in-house board games. The property also served as a convenient base for the Takaka township, beaches and bush walks.
