About this Holiday House

Rock 'n Rata Cottage is on the 7 acre organic property of the historic Rocklands Homestead. The cottage has its own private access and is set against a backdrop of limestone outcrops, nikau palms and mature rata and totara trees. These and the huge pohutukawa and puriri trees behind the homestead attract many tuis, bellbirds and woodpigeons. Rural and sea views across to the hills on the far side of Golden Bay. Very sheltered and private, yet only 3 mins drive to Pohara Beach and 7 mins from Takaka. Property is adjacent to Grove Scenic Reserve, a rock and rata wonderland with a panoramic view of Golden Bay. The perfect base for exploring the Abel Tasman and Kahurangi National Parks. Delightful, spacious, well-equipped cottage, woody and warm (log burner). Bath, shower, laundry, TV and free unlimited Wifi. A wonderful place to stay all year round.

Recently, I stayed at Rock n Rata with my daughter and granddaughter. The cottage is the perfect space for a small group, with a mezzanine floor and a spacious living/cooking area. It wasn't really cold enough to use the log stove, but I loved the way it was stacked with kindling and wood, ready for use. In the winter it would be very cosy and warm. My daughter had some work to do, so after taking advantage of one of the many amazing walks around the area, we'd return in the late afternoon, to a cottage washed in sunshine, where she would work (wi-fi provided), while my granddaughter played with her toy horses and I sat on the deck reading in the peaceful, birdsong infused paradise.

The cottage was above expectations, beautifully designed and very spacious. We loved the split level set up, it was nice to be in the same space as the children but have your own corner to retire too. The grounds were simply stunning and we spent a lot of time exploring the rocks. Susan was very welcoming and the communication was great.

We had another wonderful week at Rock'n'Rata - and already looking forward to the next visit!
