A holiday home like no other, you can't look past The Lighthouse!

Built as a replica Cape Cod style lighthouse, complete with winding staircase up to the stunning crow’s nest with its 360° balcony and a commanding view of the bay and beyond to Farewell Spit. With windows on all sides and great views to the sea, this will be nothing short of unfortgettable.

Maybe you have a romantic getaway planned or a boating break with friends or the quintessential family beach holiday; The Lighthouse offers something special and unique.

In Winter, The Lighthouse has a traditional wood-burning stove in the kitchen/dining area, creating a real heart to this home. Then in Summer, take your pick from two sundecks, a BBQ, plenty of outdoor space, plus room to park the boat!

The master bedroom, just below the Crow’s Nest, has a small en-suite and its own balcony. The lower lounge, which opens out to the lower deck area, has a pull-down queen size double bed. A further four beds are in the loft bedroom above the utility and family bathroom on the other side of the property.

Situated in beautiful Ligar Bay and a 5-minute walk from the sheltered beach and just a few kilometers from the northern end of the classic walking track through the Abel Tasman National Park.

Guided and self-guided kayaking is available at Tata Beach, just 2kms down the road. Boat ramps at both Tarakohe Harbour and Tata Beach are just minutes away. Nearby Takaka has plenty of cafes, craft, art, shops and even a cinema, for the occasional rainy day.

Totaranui, Awaroa, Wainui Waterfall, Pupu Springs, Mussell Inn, Farewell Spit and the truly incredible Wharariki Beach - the choices are endless.

A real taste of life in a lighthouse but with those comforts of home, this is sure to be a hit no matter the audience - The Lighthouse welcomes you.

Great place to stay

Stayed April 2021

A very unique and special place. Every detail, from the landscaping, plates and even light fittings makes you feel that you are staying in a real lighthouse.

Stayed April 2021

A unique place to stay, the kids loved the area and it was a handy walk to the beach with plenty of little areas to hang out. Not ideal if you want a large area for a big group to hang out in as communal spaces were small, but everything was as advertised.

Stayed January 2021

Really nice property with great views and handy to everything Golden Bay has to offer!

Stayed December 2020
