Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 3)
I have lived in the Bay since 1973, brought up 4 children, two of which have come back from overseas to raise their families here. I love Golden Bay for its history, its geographic diversity and beauty, and thriving community
Reen_Mcmillan purchased this Cottage in 1973
Why Reen_Mcmillan chose Parapara
We bought this property in 1973 because it ticked all the boxes, bush, river etc, but also had an air of mystery about it.There was evidence of old mining huts, church music sheets scattered on the floor of one of the huts along with flesh coloured corsets and black clunky heeled shoes , prevalent in the 1930's Bit by bit we pieced together the history, and added our own
What makes this Cottage unique

River Side Retreat
Comfortable and effortless space to be in, and the perfect place to return to at the end of the day. A lovely spot in itself and an easy drive to local walks, beaches, Takaka and Collingwood. Wonderful.
The ideal spot for getting away from it all and being surrounded by comfort and beauty. Outside firebath under the stars highly recommended!
What a fantastic property. Other than the perfect location, it is well appointed and very peaceful.
We spent 3 nights here and could easily have stayed longer had time allowed. It was warm enough in the upstairs bedroom to allow the window to be open at night to hear the river flowing and Moreporks, as well as being able to lie in bed looking at the stars and full moon.
This was the perfect place to sit back and relax, while being close enough to other locations to allow you to explore if you wish. I took advantage of the well stocked bookshelf to lie back in front of the fire and read, something I haven't done in many years.
I highly recommend this property

Thank you for making this available to us. We enjoyed the skyline, the birds, the river nearby, and it was all set in a lovely part of the country. Well appointed, practical layout, and very charming. Thanks also for offering a bookshelf with very informative and interesting books about Golden Bay and also books from a range of authors we have always enjoyed, with a couple of new discoveries.Thank you for being welcoming and thoughtful hosts.
