You will wake to the sounds of birdsong and will fall asleep to the sounds of ... silence. It's very peaceful and serene here. We have unlimited wifi and you're welcome to use it, but please be aware that mobiles (calls and texts) can be very temperamental, as coverage in Pohara is limited.

The space
Separate studio located in the sleepy seaside town of Pohara Valley. It is 400 metres (or about a 4 minute walk to the beach) and has off street parking for your car/RV (in front of the garage).

Your studio has recently been refurbished and is clean, stylish and equipped with modern furniture and appliances. You have your own patio area and limestone wall (with nice views out to the sea from the top). Please note that I do have two West Highland terriers who are friendly and inquisitive, but who remain in their own section of the yard.

The kitchenette has a toaster, kettle and microwave but no cooking facilities. There is a full-size fridge and coffee and tea are supplied. You’ll find a few condiments and other things in the fridge and pantry.

An additional outdoor hot shower is available just outside your front door :)

Where you’ll be

Pohara, Tasman, New Zealand

You are surrounded by bush, caves and beaches... rent kayaks off Tata Beach through Golden Bay Kayaks (7 min drive) or explore stunning Totaranui (35 min drive). We are ten minutes from Takaka by car or an easy walk along the beachside path to pubs/restaurants/take-aways and a dairy that sells beer/wine. Pack your rackets because there is a fabulous tennis court at the bottom of the road (3 min walk) where you can play a game and take in the beautiful seascape at the same time :)

I moved to Pohara at the end of 2018 and am keen to share my gorgeous surroundings with guests from anywhere and everywhere. I work as a school principal but will often be around in the evenings and weekends. I'm happy for you to pop over for me to assist you to make your stay more enjoyable in any way that I can.

During your stay

I live in the main house on the property and will often be around. I'll stay out of your way, but welcome you to come and knock on the door if you need to!
