  • Outstanding location opposite the beach. No having to plan your trip just walk over!

  • Well set up for a leisurely and comfortable stay in a clean and cosy bach

A few steps over the road from WitsEnd and you are walking on the golden sands of Ligar Bay which is a beautful, safe, sandy beach. No having to drive to the beach, you are already there. If you forget the sunlotion it is only steps back to your welcoming bach.Ligar Bay is approximately 10 minutes drive from Takaka, a short drive to great walking tracks, the northern gateway of the Abel Tasman National Park and local attractions You can check out eateries in nearby Pohara or further afield if you want to combine dining with exploring Golden Bay. You can launch your boat at nearby Tarakohe Harbour or at Tata Beach or you could take a leisurely paddle around the Bay on WitsEnd's kayaks, maybe out to the Tata Islands to spot the seals or potter around in the Estuary at high tide. WitsEnd is furnished for comfort and that special 'holiday feel'. To enhance your stay, there are also mountain bikes available for exploring nearby areas and board and card games to bring out the competitive holiday spirit.

Dine out on the balcony overlooking the water or out the back to keep the cook company at the BBQ. You will be drawn by the ever changing sea views and the relaxing atmosphere of WitsEnd.

  • Witsend is a lovely property with that relaxed "Kiwi Bach" feel

    Witsend is a lovely property with that relaxed "Kiwi Bach" feel. It's immaculately clean and comfortable and equipped with everything needed for a good holiday. It's in a great location across the road from the beach . The front of the property looks out over Ligar Bay while the rear view is of the country fields. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property to other holiday makers

    Beautiful spot to spend the week in Golden bay! Could have happily stayed at wits end another week. The house is lovely and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Very handy having the kayaks to explore surrounding beaches. Would definitely recommend this Bach if you are looking for a peaceful spot with beautiful views.

  • The location is perfect for a beach holiday

    The location is perfect for a beach holiday. The daily bird song was beautiful. The property was presented in a very clean and tidy condition throughout. The beach was our living area or else the deck as for the most part we enjoyed gloriously sunny hot weather! The back lawn area with the large picnic table was our preference to enjoy breakfast and dinner where we captured the rising and setting sun. Having the separate toilet was appreciated. We loved our holiday at WitsEnd and will return.

    WitsEnd is clean and comfortable with a lovely bach feel that is perfect for a family holiday. The full kitchen is thoughtfully provisioned, the beds comfortable and made up with quality linen. The location is fantastic; the beach is just over the road and the views from the house are breath taking.
