Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

A 10 minute drive, or an easy walk away, is the Riwaka Resurgence with its own Crystal Pool.The Resurgence is where the northern branch of the Riwaka River emerges from the depths of the Takaka Hill and starts its final 15km or so journey to the sea. The water constantly spilling into the light of day has run within limestone cracks and passages from around the top of the hill and emerges as pure as the crystal clear waters of the better known Pupu Springs. A two minute stroll will bring you to the Riwaka River where you can fish for brown trout or feed the ducks. The property is also home to small farm and domestic animals, dogs, cats, llamas, horses plus free range 'chooks', geese and peahen.

Loved this cottage! Wonderfully relaxing, peaceful - a true retreat and the perfect place if you want to get away from it all. Very welcoming hosts. Everything you could possibly need is in this cottage. Perfect bed and great shower. Thumbs up!!

Leslie Lyall
Perfect place for a low key, quiet weekend away. Kids enjoyed being on a working farm, feeding the hens, patting the ponies.
