Fantail Cottage is close to the beach, family-friendly activities, artists, and Takaka, a vibrant wee town with a strong café culture. It is close to Abel Tasman and Kahurangi National Parks and many natural, beautiful places. Private and restful, this character cottage is set in a farm paddock 50m from a very long, quiet beach which has safe swimming. It is a perfect retreat space for anybody seeking to get away from the hustle and bustle.

The space

With beach access only, our piece of paradise is quiet and feels remote, yet we're only 10 minutes from funky Takaka with its art and cafés. Long beach walks, safe swimming, outdoor living at its best. It's easy to put the wallet away and really holiday here.

Guest access

An outdoor swing seat, outdoor dining under a large sun umbrella, and BBQ facilities make for easy summer meals. Two double rooms for adults, plus a bunk room for the kids.

Other things to note

As we have beach access only, there are 3 options for getting to Fantail Cottage. Walk 400m down the beach for a true resort feeling, drive your 4WD down the beach, or arrange for us to pick you up.
We expect you to clean the house to the standard it was when you arrived before you depart.

We've had a wonderful week at the Fantail Cottage. The beach in front of the property is beautiful. You have to be aware of the tides though, as at big tides you cannot leave or reach the cottage by car, but you can always by foot. We woud definately go back!

Lovely tranquill place on the beach. Interesting juggling transport with the tides but that made for intrepid adventures.

The location of the Cottage is Fantastic. The cottage itself is cosy. The beach is the best we have seen in NZ. In addition to this there is Gaylenes private glow worm cave and nature walks - not to be missed. Be sure to read the rules and guidelines because there are some things you need to be aware off.

We live up the hill on the same property and love sharing our knowledge of Kahurangi and Abel Tasman National Parks and other attractions if you want some local tips.
