Managed to liaise with Shirl in Nelson to pick up the keys & find the cottage re her directions. Lovely place with big lawn & view of the water. We were very pleased with all the amenities and felt immediately comfortable & at home!

Great location and easy to find with instructions from the owners. The rooms are very spacious. Comfortable beds and furniture. Well-equipped kitchen. Does not have heating other than a wood burner, but it keeps the cottage nice and warm. Good cell-phone reception.

Pat and Shirls home has everything you need for 3 nights stay. A little off the beaten track if you like that sort of thing. The log fire was wonderful.

This is a lovely, secluded cabin just minutes from Takaka, and we were able to cook our meals there, as the kitchen is well stocked with pots and utensils. The birds in the yard were a delight, and we particularly enjoyed the table out on the front deck. Kakariki Cottage was a great starting point for all our adventures.

We had a lovely few days at the Cottage - I wish we could have stayed longer. The cottage has everything you could possibly need and is located perfectly for a few days getaway without being too secluded! I hope to get back one day soon for a longer stay!

More than 12 years ago we bought Kakariki Cottage. We simply love the surrounding area and many guests have expressed delight at their choice of a place to stay and relax. Our hope was to try and turn back the clock and help the land recover. We planted hundreds of native New Zealand trees on land that had previously been farmed. The cottage is unpretentious, clean and cosy. We just love this land. A bird watchers paradise. A place to relax.
