Description

  • artisan built stone house, wooden oiled floors, double glazing
  • swimming holes close by, bush walks begin literally at the back door
  • the feel of a hidden world, yet only 20 minutes from Takaka

The cottage is warm and well appointed, built in carefully selected stone from every river in Golden Bay.

Insect screens allow the sliding windows to be open on hot nights without moths , mosquitos etc swarming in

Bird life abounds, and the ParaPara river ,glimpsed through the trees is 20 steps away.Old gold workings from the 19th century are still visible, and the track up the river follows the water race that provided power for the historic paint factory working in the early days of the colony

5 minutes from marvellous Milnthorpe Park with its bush walks and beach, 10 minutes from the town of Collingwood, and further afield spectacular Wharariki beach and the Westhaven inlet

Or if you're in the mood for perusing arts and crafts, many artisan galleries are nearby, potters, jewellers and glass workers

  • Great spot

    Great spot. The minute you arrived you said aaaahhhhh. Peaceful, private and homely. This place has a lot of charm tucked away in the bush, but still central to all that golden bay offers.

  • This property gets top marks in every respect

    This property gets top marks in every respect. The location is perfect for exploring Golden Bay and is within an easy distance of Collingwood and Takaka, but completely secluded and private. The little house is charming and totally unique. It was spacious and perfectly equipped with everything you would need for any length of stay, without being cluttered. The place was spotlessly clean and so comfortable. We really hope to visit again. Thank you!
