About this Holiday House

Kia Ora Christmas 2023 has just become available!! BOOK NOW to have your holiday by the beach in Pohara, Golden Bay!~ Cleaning fee waived for bookings for this summer! Grab a deal! Contact Shanti now. Our home is our sanctuary and we are looking forward to sharing this special place with you. Our quaint home has an open-plan layout, all the mod-cons, and LOTS of indoor/outdoor flow. Located on a bountiful Permaculture property with over 50 fruit & nut trees and just 600 meters from the beach, with Kahurangi and Abel Tasman National Parks at your exploration doorstep. Our land also has Glamping and caravan accomodations, so up to 17 people (possibly more with tents you bring) can comfortably sleep here. Group size can vary and we can accomodate that. There are 3 showers (2 outdoor), 3 toilets (2 composting) and plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. Please email me so we can discuss your needs specifically to do with group size and how much of the property you need to rent. The main house is 90 square meters and designed in an open-plan way, North-facing with lots of windows and natural light. The house is tucked away and very private, set amongst a half acre of permaculture gardens, trees and bush. We have a very colourful home with treasures from all over the world decorating the space. We do live here for the majority of the year, so there are family photos and kids pictures on the walls. Expect to be coming into a home FULL of LOVE. There is unlimited wifi access as well as Netflix should you like to use it. But please note, we do not have regular TV. We do have all the mod-cons except no dishwasher but yes to washing machine. We have 2 other accomodation set-ups on this property. Please look on Air BnB for Omarama Oasis Permaculture Glamping and Kiwiana Caravan. It would be ideal if you would like to rent the entire property (sleeps 10-13 people with beds) and more with tents. This needs to be discussed and arranged way ahead of time to coordinate dates and bookings. However, you can rent our home only, just be aware that there will be other people in other self contained accomodations on this half acre property, especially in summer. If you would like to exclusively hire this half-acre then please make that request. Again, there is plenty of privacy for various parties/people. The main house has 1 bedroom with Queen bed and a NOOD couch that can be transformed into a king bed or 2 singles in the lounge, and 1 full bathroom with shower, washing machine and flushing toilet. Any Questions, please feel free to ask.

Special Amenities

Our half acre is a fully functioning and very productive permaculture garden. We have over 50 fruit and nut trees, 7 hens and a gorgeous cat (which will likely be away on holiday herself). The house has an indoor kitchen and shower and is set in a private corner of the land and gardens with beautiful flowers and greenery. IF you hire the whole property then we also have 2 outdoor kitchen and dining areas, a Seaview deck, a trampoline and kids play zone area. We also have a glamping tent and caravan accomodations on-site. Please note: I, or a cleaner, will need to come on-site every day or every 2 days to clean/empty the compost loos IF you have the entire property. The house is self contained with all you need.

Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

Our home is located in Pohara Valley, Tasman, New Zealand. We live across the street from our local Marae (Maori meeting place). We live in a quiet neighborhood and in a community of friendly, helpful, and caring people. Beautiful Pohara beach is just a 600 meter stroll away. The beach is an endless expanse of ever-changing beauty as the tide moves a great distance between high and low. It is a great place to walk, run, explore, swim, frolic, ride horses, fly a kite, kayak, ride a blo-kart, relax, read, or walk your dog. The Tarakohe wharf is also only a 15-20 minute walk with great access to fishing, sailing and boating. There is ample rock climbing within walking distance all along the sea frontage. We are at the gateway to the top end of the Abel Tasman National Park just 20 min drive away (the quietest most untouched areas are up on the top end). There are endless pristine beaches to explore, kayak, or walk along, as well as waterfall and bush tracks. Some of Golden Bay's best restaurants are within walking distance, such as the Ratanui Lodge. For an easy inexpensive meal pick up some fish & chips or pizzas from the local takeaways at Pohara General Store. Aroha Health Spa just down the road providing a range of relaxing therapies and treatments to pamper you after a long day exploring :). Takaka township is a 10 min drive away. Kahurangi NP is also just an hour away.

Please be in touch with me about the rate to hire the entire property. The rate listed here is for the house only. House has a king size (or 2 singles) NOOD fold out bed in the lounge (very comfy), as well as, one bedroom which has a very comfy queen bed. So 4 people can easily sleep in the house. 2 in a bedroom and 2 in the "lounge" studio like area.
Please note that we do have a very furry, sweet cat. The cat will be relocated. If you are allergic to cats we do not recommend you book our home as cat hair is around still, Book the glamping tent instead. We have 9 hens on site in a contained area. Our driveway is not easy to turn around in so please park along the road or in front of the caravan.
