Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

There are lots of things to see and do in Golden Bay including numerous walking trails catering for a wide range of fitness levels. Totally recommend catching your own salmon at Anatoki Salmon Farm, then have a lunch or drink while they smoke it for you. Pupu Springs is a worth a visit and if you feel like a bit of a hike, a visit to Rawhiti Cave will impress, as will the more sedate escorted tour through Ngarua Caves. You can hire kayaks from Golden Bay Kayaks located in nearby Tata Beach which has lovely golden sand. You can paddle your way out to the Tata islands or around to Wainui Bay where you might see some seals basking on the rocks. Kotare Sands Cafe and Bar at the bottom of the hill is a nice spot for a drink or a casual meal, and there's an excellent cafe called Totally Roasted just as you arrive in Pohara on the right. There's a Fresh Choice Supermarket on the right as you enter Takaka which is approx 10km from our holiday home, and also a convenience store in Pohara at the bottom of Richmond Road

WOW is the first word we can think of to describe this beautiful house. From the moment we walked in we fell in love with the amazing view this house commands. The living/dining/kitchen area was open plan and the large bi fold doors opened up onto the expansive deck area. We loved the fact the deck extended to attach to a cliff face on the East side. There was room for our vehicles and our boat to be parked off the street and a hose to flush the boat engine after being at sea. There is also a fish filleting sink area accessed from the rear of the garage. If you like to keep up to date with clean clothes and towels, the washer and dryer were excellent. The kitchen is kitted out with everything you will need to eat in. We did try out the cafes in the area and would recommend them all, just within a short walk from the house. Slight steep hill to get back to the house after a meal and a couple of drinks but definitely not too bad. The three bedrooms were very comfortable and plenty of wardrobe space and drawers if you're settling in for a long stay. We struck a warm humid week and just happened to bring a couple of fans with us as we read the air-con in the bedroom area was decommissioned so we found the fans to be very useful. The beach itself if quite tidal and spent some time at Tata Beach. However, there are more cafes and bars at Pohara so we considered we were in the right spot. This house is definitely affordable luxury with breathtaking views and we hope to visit again in the future. We loved it!

Fabulous home in Great location! This home was immaculately clean and well maintained. Amazing views, tiered section with a lower grassed area for the kids to play on. Short/easy walk to the beach & local restaurants. Short drive to all the amenities in Takaka. We (2 adults & 2 ten year old children) thoroughly enjoyed our 7 night stay, and would highly recommend this holiday home! Thank you Phil & Jo for letting us stay in your gorgeous home!

From the start the communication was easy, instructions simple and house incredible. The location was amazing. The view, the shops and beach just there. Even though we were amongst it all, it felt private. Great for kids with a selection of dvds after a long day.Would highly recommend and will be planning a trip back to stay here again. Best holiday house we have ever been too. Thank you for making our trip the best.
