This place is amazing - the owner (Cindy) greeted us with fresh vegetables and fruit from her gardens (which we had access to during our stay). Whether using the kayaks, hunting for fresh mussels or reading a book - you can't go wrong with this little gem. The view is fantastic - very relaxing!

You wouldn't find a better place with a view like this anywhere in the world. The setting is beautiful, perfect batch that is so inviting and comfortable. We even said to each other that we would live there tomorrow if we had the chance. Cindy has been a fantastic and warm hostess. We have been here many times for a...

Spent two nights at Golden Bay Lodge and didn't want to leave .. This place is stunning! Gorgeous gardens, awesome beach and lovely accommodation. Very clean and the host was very helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend.

Well, it was hard to fault this place, a free upgrade to the cottage was a great start, combined with a roaring fire and some home made lemonade and herbs. The property is right on the beach, which is accessible down a steep track, about 50 metres walk. There is a spa pool, which overlooks the bay. The cottage sports...

This place is so good, we'd prefer to keep it a secret! Yet we owe Cindy Joy and Colin a thank you and recommendation. We stayed here 4 days recently and didn't want to leave. We stayed in the Bach and enjoyed the house, organic treats abounding in the garden, the easily accessed beach, the kayaks, and the full moon...

We enjoyed our three days at Golden Bay Lodge and Garden. It is a gorgeous place with an organic, not well tended garden. The Bach accommodation was clean, tidy and all the two of us (or 4) needed. What surprised, and dismayed, me was the need for 50% deposit and each night the manager arriving to ask for the balance...

What a wonderful place. We stayed there 3 nights and wish we could have stayed longer but it was booked. We grilled out on the BBQ and enjoyed our breakfast watching the waves. We ate at the Mussel Inn which was pretty good and great beer. Wwhat a wonderful place. We did hike PuPu Springs and the PuPu hydro walk,...

We spent 3 nights in Golden Bay at the Golden Bay Lodge (a B&B) in Pohara, just a few miles from Takaka. It was the perfect place to relax and take in the gorgeous NZ scenary, and it provided incredible access to Abel Tasman National Park. One day we did a 15 mile hike through the park, which was amazing....
