  • Outstanding location opposite the beach. No having to plan your trip just walk over!
  • Expansive views over Ligar and Golden Bay
  • 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.

  • Had a fantastic time here, all as described

    Had a fantastic time here, all as described. Just ideal for our family of 3 plus visiting grandparent. Great with a young one, having a bathtub and super safe balcony (with a glorious view).

  • The property is always spotless on arrival with the beds beautifully made

    The property is always spotless on arrival with the beds beautifully made. WitsEnd is a perfect place for families to stay with a safe swimming beach over the road. The kayaks provided get daily use by our family as the tidal bay provides excellent kayaking conditions. Ligar Bay is a beautiful location and the view from the deck is breathtaking. After a third visit WitsEnd is our family's favourite summer holiday destination.

  • The Bach was beautifully presented, great location and was kitted out well

    The Bach was beautifully presented, great location and was kitted out well. Had a brilliant time there with my adult son and daughter. Would highly recommend!

  • Excellent location

    Excellent location. Property well equipped and stocked with necessities and more. With a long low estate wagon access to the property was a little challenging at first with "bottoming out" problems - would suggest that the opening to the drive be widened to make angled approach easier. Good to be forewarned about the problem, however. A motion-activated light above the back door (like at the front) would help those arriving late.
