Anatimo House - Wainui Bay

Max Guests

About this Holiday House

Anatimo bach is a private, secluded beach front house nestled amidst a beautiful garden with views over Wainui Bay. Just a 20 metre walk to the sea. Set on farm land away from the road with private access to the beach. Anatimo is warm, cosy and comfortable with a great woodfire for winter. There is a large table to sit around and comfy sofas and chairs to relax on. The garden provides many places for outside leisure. We are situated right on the edge of Abel Tasman National Park, with many options for exploring the coastline and various walkways. Wainui Bay is tidal, safe for swimming, kayaking, exploring rockpools, collecting mussels/cockles and fishing. Whilst very rural we are only a 10 min drive to the nearest shop at Pohara and 20 mins to Takaka. A wonderful relaxing place to wind down and take a break. Very close to Gibbs Hill mountain bike track open may to October, great fun. Horses welcome by negotiation. Dogs by arrangement may be kept outside. This property is on a working farm and the with lots of bird life so dogs must be kept under control.

Had a fabulous time at this property. Beautiful spot for sunrise and sunset views. Very comfortable lounge sofas and chairs and log fire kept us really warm. Lots of pots, pans and kitchen items provided.. Easy communication with owners, was so nice to stroll along the beach at low tide. Beds were comfy and great bonus having sheets provided. Recommend to all.

We had another wonderful stay at the bach. It is well equipped and great for relaxing with four couches to chill out on. It has wonderful views of the bay, is very private with lots of space and only a short walk to the beach. Great outdoor set up with the deck, an outdoor couch, deck table and another large table under the trees. Wekas and bellbirds in the garden. Plenty to do around the area from caving, tramping, swimming and diving and fishing (Mussel farms not far away). Great spot for kayaking with the estuary, rocky headland and Able Tasman bays to explore. A nice cafe down the road at Wainui falls and a pizza place not far from there on the way to Totaranui. Lots of attractions such as the salmon fishing, Pupu springs, the Pupu water race and hydro scheme, Able Tasman national park, Wharariki beach and the spit to just name a few. Takaka is only 30 minutes away, a nice little town with plenty of cafes and a good supermarket. The owners are great to deal with and always helpful. I thoroughly recommend this bach.

Beautiful spot, beautiful piece of land and beautiful house! The house is very spacious and the garden full of native species! We've enjoyed our Weka pets and their little chicks :) the private beach access is amazing. We will surely come back in Anatimo house!
