With a population of around 1200, Takaka is the largest settlement in Golden Bay, which has a total population of just over 5000. While there are multiple beaches and hiking trails throughout the area, many within 20 minutes drive, the two most spectacular are: (1) the Top of the South, including Farewell Spit, Cape Farewell and Wharariki Beach and (2) the Abel Tasman track, accessed via Totaranui. Both of these are about 45 minutes away by car. There are commercial tours to Farewell Spit.

The SpaceThis beautiful and incredible land has been created and managed as a full Permaculture organic garden and self-sufficiency lifestyle block. Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive systems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is the harmonious integration of the landscape with the people which provides their food, energy, shelter and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way. Permaculture integrates people into Nature's design. Spending time here allows you to be embraced and nurtured by this natural design. You can be at one with the elements as you enjoy your homegrown breakfast with the sun shining on you. We live on half an acre of luscious soil with our very own stream which runs year round. We aim to grow as much of our own food as possible. We have fruit and nut trees: peach, apple, plum, grape, hazelnut, walnut, avocado, lemon, macadamia, feijoa, fig, kiwifruit, mandarin, orange, pear, tamarillo....We have our own chickens for fresh eggs and we make our own organic sourdough bread from local NZ whole grains. We have beehives that pollinate the fruit and nut trees and provide us with the most delicious honey! As fruit is in season, you can pick your own straight from the tree for the BEST-tasting, freshest fruit you have ever had. You can nibble your way through the gardens and enjoy a meditative sit in the herb garden circle taking in the multitude of smells and sounds. Breakfast will be created from fresh homegrown eggs & greens from the garden with (sourdough) bread OR Muesli with raw local milk, plus whatever is in season on the land. The Emperor tent is a professionally designed and manufactured 6 by 4 meter diameter canvas tent. You will lay your head to rest next to a babbling stream as the sound of the water gently lulls you to sleep. Abundant Native bird song will awake you in the morning within the natural rhythms of daybreak. We have tui, kereru, thrush, blackbird, bellbird, piwakawaka, weka, and more. The morning and evening sun glow through the tent and warm it throughout the day. There are 2 doors, all complete with insect screens. Your Glamping tent includes a Queen size bed, 2 chairs, shelves, drawers and carpets within the tent, as well as, electricity providing charging facilities if necessary. There is an electric blanket on the bed for extra warmth should you need it. There are 2 single mattresses that can be put on the carpeted floor of the tent for extra guests or children (all bedding will be provided). There are 2 cloth dividing walls that can be closed for privacy if needed within the tent. Tea and coffee making facilities and goodies (including honey from our own bees) are offered as part of your Glamping experience. The Emperor Tent very comfortably accommodates 2 adults, with space for up to 2 or 3 additional children or adults, making it the perfect family nature holiday getaway. All extra guests (including children) requiring a bed to be made up will be an additional $20 per night. Please add additional guests when making your booking. Again, additional guests will be sleeping on single mattresses on the carpeted floor of the tent and all bedding is provided. Pets are allowed with prior approval and must sleep outside of the tent. We look forward to hosting you and sharing our wee slice of paradise! Guest AccessThe price listed is for two adults per night and includes breakfast. Breakfast can be created from fresh homegrown eggs from the garden with homemade sourdough bread OR fresh fruit from the land (whatever is in season) with local Raw milk and muesli. If you prefer to organize your own breakfast that's fine too. Discounts will be given for longer stays and with a minimum of at least 2 nights during the high season (Dec. - Feb). The Emperor tent has her own tea and coffee making facilities and all the goodies are supplied. There is an outdoor kitchen area adjacent to the tent for your food preparation needs. A (hot) outdoor shower has also just been completed. There is also a shower which is shared with us within the main house. There is a fridge available in the house. You can enjoy a glass of wine as you watch a beautiful sunset from the sea view deck. We sometimes have helpers/woofers staying here (in a separate caravan accommodation) to assist with the care of the land and gardens. As a guest here, we open our home to you, but ask that you respect our space and privacy in return. You will enjoy your own zone that we have created for you around the Emperor Tent. We are keen to share our lifestyle with others and inspire. My 7 year old daughter and I love to meet new people and share local information. We provide maps and suggestions for you to have your own unique experience here in beautiful Golden Bay. Guests with children are most welcome. Our gardens, the surrounding area, and the beach (within walking distance) are an endless playground for kids of all ages, including adults! Interaction with GuestsWe are available to assist you with your needs during your stay. I am often at Aroha Health Spa in Pohara where I work, so you are free to spend your days exploring, relaxing, reading, listening to birdsong, walking on the beach.... If you prefer total privacy, please let us know and we will respect your request. We prefer privacy from 6:30pm onwards at the main house, so that my daughter can get to bed. Wifi can be used on the verandah of the house (or inside) as this is where the signal is best between 10am and 5pm. If you notice the ropes are across the stone path that leads to our wee house then that is the signal that we are needing some privacy. If there is an emergency then by all means...let me know...otherwise enjoy your time and space and we shall do the same. The NeighborhoodWe live across the street from our local Marae (Maori meeting place). We live in a quiet neighborhood and in a community of friendly, helpful, and caring people. Beautiful Pohara beach is just a 600 meter stroll away. The beach is an endless expanse of ever-changing beauty as the tide moves a great distance between high and low. It is a great place to walk, run, explore, swim, frolic, ride horses, fly a kite, kayak, ride a blo-kart, relax, read, or walk your dog. The Tarakohe wharf is also only a 15-20 minute walk with great access to fishing, sailing and boating. We are at the gateway to the top end of the Abel Tasman National Park (the quietest most untouched areas are up on the top end). There are endless pristine beaches to explore, kayak, or walk along, as well as waterfall and bush tracks. Some of Golden Bay's best restaurants are within walking distance, such as the San Souci Inn and Ratanui Lodge. For any easy inexpensive meal pick up some fish & chips or pizzas from the local takeaways at Pohara General Store. Aroha Health Spa just down the road providing a range of relaxing therapies and treatments to pamper you after a long day exploring :) Getting AroundWe live in Pohara Valley about 10 minutes drive from Takaka Township. You can walk 10-15 minutes to the small village of Pohara where there are some restaurants, cafes and a general store. Abel Tasman National Park is only a 20 minute drive away. Kahurangi National Park and the west coast (Wharariki Beach) are about an hours drive away. It is handy to have your own transportation to explore beyond Pohara. If you need bus transport check out (URL HIDDEN) Biking is a beautiful way to get around if you have your own bike. Hitch-hiking is an easy option with a hitch-hiking/ride-share bench right at the bottom of the road. Other Things to NoteI run Thrive Therapies at Aroha Health Spa in Pohara and work in many facets of natural health and healing, including massage, reflexology, herbalism, and colon hydrotherapy. I am often away from the land working with clients, especially in summer. Massage and other forms of healing bodywork can be arranged at Aroha Health Spa, a 15 to 20 minute walk along the beach, or in the Emperor tent for an extra charge ($80/hour or $120/90 min). Eventually, the Emperor Tent space will be used as an accommodation option for healing health retreats organized through Aroha Health Spa and utilizing fresh food from the land.

The SpaceOur house is in a quiet street 3 minutes walk to the beach and less than 10 minutes drive to Takaka, our main town. We're only 30-60 minutes travel to the Abel Tasman National Park on one side, and Kahurangi National Park on the other, with the beach and bay in front. Please visit our website at the address above for full details. No children or pets please. Guest AccessWe live up one end of the house, and will respect your privacy. In addition to providing you with breakfast, there are tea and coffee making facilities in your private lounge. There is also a large deck and outdoor kitchen for guest use. We do not provide evening meals but you are welcome to use the barbeque on the deck. Golden Bay has a great selection of cafes and restaurants to suit any taste. We will provide you with a guide to the local eateries. Interaction with GuestsThis is not an empty sterile holiday home - we love Golden Bay and live here permanently so know the area well. We can provide you with a truly personalized experience here in the Bay and cater specifically for birders and photographers. You as our guest set the level of interaction to suit your personal preferences. The NeighborhoodPohara is on the eastern side of Golden Bay, and is sheltered from most of the winds; especially the southerly wind. It enjoys a near tropical climate in summer and although the winter early mornings can get a bit nippy, it's usually followed by a sunny calm day. If you're looking for an outdoor break, this is the place. Getting AroundTo the east we have Wainui Bay, Totaranui and the Abel Tasman Park, to the west is the whole sweep of the bay over to Kahurangi National Park and the west coast, and to the north - a beautiful scenic one hour drive to the base of the iconic Farewell Spit, which is a destination in itself. Other Things to NoteSuitable only if you have your own vehicle. If you are using GPS to navigate, it's best to input Takaka as the destination rather than Pohara. Once you get to Takaka, where you will find cafe's and a supermarket for supplies, you can follow the signs to Pohara, it's well sign-posted. The reason for this is that GPS tends to track you in a direct line from the bottom of the hill to Pohara, and you'll find yourself on back-roads and farmers tracks rather than on the main road into town.

        The SpaceComfy, modern cottage with separate bedroom and living area. When first listed this property was listed under another member. However, since April, 2016 I have listed it under my own account. Some excerpts for feedback from that period include: "The Batch is wonderful. Truly is 40 foot steps from the beach. It's calm, flat and so easy to swim in. Perfect to take a glass of wine down and sit and watch the sunset. Erika is ready and willing and so excited to share New Zealand with folks. The Batch is decorated lovely and having a full grocery store within a 15 min. car drive it's easy to stock up and then never have to leave the quiet beautiful beach. Thank you Erika and Daan for a lovely visit. A lovely chat and a lovely stay. A pleasure to be your guest." -Stacie "The place looks tiny from the outside but proved to be quite spacious and well-equipped on the inside. The beach across the road is simply amazing, day or night." -Meg "Unbelievable location. Everything you could require." -Kevin "We enjoyed our stay here. The place was clean and had everything we needed with great location to the beach.".-Timothy Guest AccessParking is available right next to the cottage. Interaction with GuestsThe cottage is totally private but we are always here for you, whether you need some travel advice or just a glass of wine. The NeighborhoodNestled between Abel Tasman National Park and Kahurangi National Park Golden Bay is far and away one of the most scenic areas in New Zealand with kayaking, tramping, rock climbing, swimming and much, much more. Takaka has recently been declared the sunniest spot in New Zealand. Plan on spending at least 3-4 days at Golden Bay. There is lots to see and do and fewer days will mean missing some stunning geography. Getting AroundThere is no public transportation in Golden Bay, but I can provide tour guide services for a reasonable fee. Other Things to NoteCheck in and check out times are usually flexible. Just ask.
