Leave the world behind in this one roomed cottage nestled in 5 hectares of native bush among park like grounds bordering on Kahurangi National Park. Relax to the sound of birdsong, bask in the sun on the deck, soak up the peace and tranquilty. Sleep in a comfortable queen bed with cotton sheets. Golden Bay is an outdoor adventure playground surrounded by two National Parks with outstanding beaches, caves, native rain forest and mountains.

The space
This one-roomed cabin has a comfortable queen bed and sunny deck in a peaceful and tranquil setting amongst harekeke, kanuka and nikau bush with an outlook onto Kahurangi National Park. Your room comes equipped with a simple outdoor kitchen with microwave, gas hob, toaster, tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge. There is an outdoor wood-fired bbq area with deck chairs and outdoor seating. There is an optional continental breakfast (please let us know if you want this). The bathroom is shared and it is a short walk across a courtyard. There is no public transport in Golden Bay so you need your own car, parking onsite. This 3 hectare property has been a private family home for the last 40 years and is a quirky home to a writer and an artist. It features a QE2 covenanted swamp with board walk and loop track, with extensive gardens taking up much of the rest. Situated eight kilometres before Collingwood on the main Takaka – Collingwood Highway and 1.6km past the Mussel Inn, it is centrally located to explore all that Golden Bay has to offer from Farewell Spit and the wild West Coast beaches to the Abel Tasman National Park in the east.

Where you’ll be

Parapara, Tasman, New Zealand

Close to beaches and 1.6 km from the Mussel Inn. 18 km from Takaka township which has banks, post office, supermarket, cafes and shops. Eight km from Collingwood which has a superette, a pub, post office and cafes. Centrally located in Golden Bay between Farewell Spit and Abel Tasman National Park. Neighbouring on Kahurangi National Park.We do not recommend only one night stays in Golden Bay. It is a very long and winding road to get here and back with not that much to see from the car. All the best spots are off the beaten track.

We have been living here on our family land for over 30 years. We live on a 5 hectare lifestyle block with a productive vege garden and chickens and turkeys. Our family lives next door with four grandchildren and step grandkids. Gerard is a free lance writer and some of his work involves travel journalism so in the last few years we have been as an administrator at the local Community Mental Health clinic. When she is at home she works in her garden and writes a blog about the seasonal food she grows and cooks.
