'Golden Bay by the Sea'

West coast Golden Bay
West coast Golden Bay


'Golden Bay by the Sea' is our home from where we run a small 2 bedroom B&B business.    It's set in 3 acres of garden, paddock and woodland as is just 500m from the nearest beach.  Takaka the only town is 6km away.  


Golden Bay is in the north west corner of the South Island of New Zealand, it's an amazingly beautiful part of the world.  The coastline is spectacular - golden sandy beaches, small coves with native bush, or wild rugged cliffs and crashing waves - it's all here.  On the western side of Golden Bay is the wild and remote Kahurangi National Park including the Heaphy Track, to the west is Abel Tasman National Park with its famous long distance coastal track.  The town of Nelson is a 2 hour drive away. 


Golden Bay has a  diverse community - from dairy farmers to alternative life-stylers, from artists to retirees it's a wonderful and colourful mix.


For it's environment and its people its a great place to visit.  We recommend at least a 2 night stay so that you can have a full day to explore.
