Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)
We are a young family who has moved back to Australia for a short time so we are giving people the opportunity to stay in our gorgeous little shack that we called home when we lived in the Bay.
Why TataGem chose Tata Beach
This property is so unique to anything else you would find at Tata Beach. We have worked hard to keep this place how we found it. Quirky with so much soul. The Grandad shack has rustic bones with luxury interiors and we wouldn't have it any other way.
What makes this House unique
Our home here at Tata Beach is unique in that we are totally off-grid without sacrificing any of the modern day facilities.

We had a great time at The Grandad Shack! Beautiful location, amazing views, peaceful and private. Was a shame to leave. We would definitely stay again.
So glad you had a wonderful stay! We look forward to having you back again. Thanks for being a great guest!
The location is superb: a house overlooking the beautiful Tata bay, set in natural NZ bush. The steep rugged driveway towards the house is best tackled with a 4x4, although we managed to drive up with our van towing a trailer. There was enough space next to the house for three cars and two trailers (one with a boat and another with 3 kayaks) The decor inside the house is tastefully done. Crisp clean luxury linen and towels were provided. The kitchen was adequately equipped with gas hob, roomy fridge and deep freezer. Safe drinking water. Great BBQ. There is only one bathroom with the toilet inside so careful planning is necessary wrt ablutions if you’re a larger group. The bathroom is downstairs, adjacent to the kids bunk room. There are two beautiful double bedrooms upstairs, one with a stunning view of the bay. We did miss hanging space for our clothing although there was plenty of drawers. We also missed a patio/ deck facing the beautiful view. The deck is situated behind the house facing the bush, where the house provides shade from the setting sun.
Overall we absolutely loved our stay, and really appreciated the prompt reply of the wonders when we needed more crockery and also when the bbq gas ran out etc.
Amazing idyllic spot!
Amazing idyllic spot! Gorgeous! House beautifully presented and luxurious linen and towels! In the bush but still all the mod cons! Only 10 mins walk down the hill to fabulous beach! Didn’t want to leave!Thanks so much.
Beautiful near the beach and Abel Tasman
The Grandad Shack had everything we wanted - a short walk to gorgeous Tata Beach, a quick few minutes drive to Abel Tasman and Wainui Falls, and a 15min drive to Takaka. We loved the privacy and space the Shack has, perfect for our puppy to explore. The dramatic sunsets on the deck were breathtaking. Nicely equipped kitchen for our big meals and we loved that it was off the grid. We enjoyed our stay immensely!
