Not your typical bach, Bay Cottage is a true retreat from the hustle and bustle of busy holiday spots.

Set amongst a lush green working orchard, this studio-style cottage is a beautiful, quiet, and romantic escape where you can really switch off. No TV, just a symphony of cicadas, native birds and the wind blowing through the organic avocado and mandarin trees.

The bright and comfortable cottage has one bedroom and lounge area, a separate kitchenette, and a bathroom. The kitchenette is well set-up for quick breakfasts and light lunches, while the bedroom/lounge area offers relaxing indoor-outdoor flow onto the surrounding rural scenery.

Two sundecks sit on either side of the cottage, one sheltered and one sun-drenched; no matter where the wind blows, you'll find the ideal spot to sit and enjoy a glass of wine, or to breathe in some fresh air while you read your book.

When it's time for dinner, light up the BBQ and put your feet up. Alternatively, Bay Cottage is a quick five-minute drive to Takaka township offering some great places to eat. We also highly recommend driving a little bit further, 15-minutes up the coast, to the world-famous Mussel Inn!

For days exploring Golden Bay, you are only 10 minutes from Pohara Beach, and there are lots of local walks around the area, including the famous Abel Tasman tracks.

Unplug and find yourself refreshed at Bay Cottage!

Guest reviews for Bay Cottage

Stayed March 2022

The property had an ideal setting but did consider it expensive for what was on offer and the age of the property. Would not use again to book accommodation as they charge your credit card for more $$$ than you authorise adn will not reply to emails requesting the money be refunded. Their actions certainly spoilt a special occassion break.

Thank you for your review, Paulette. Unfortunately we do not have control over how advertises their additional charges, however, linen is mandatory on these channels when booking a Bachcare property. Should you wish to bring your own linen, we would recommend booking directly with Bachcare.

This is a stunning hidden treasure. The location is central enough to have access to the coastal walks..just perfect

Really lovely and quiet place to unwind. Super friendly owners. I was charmed by the Weka and wild Hare

We had a great stay at the cottage - it was in a beautiful, relaxing setting with all the facilities and space we needed. The lovely owner even brought over oranges and avocados directly from the orchard the accommodation is set in.. a very nice touch!
