Romantic Getaway. Seeing it is loving it! The Caboose is a handcrafted replica of an old train carriage, with a private garden. Set on a half acre property with a historic farmhouse, only 5 minutes drive from the beach and Takaka township.
“The Caboose was refreshingly different from anything we have experienced in NZ so far. Feeling of remoteness but close to local amenities and laces to visit. So much to see - we only touched the surface. Hosts were attentive but did not invade your privacy. Eggs and beer were a nice and thoughtful touch. Would highly recommend for a get away from it all experience.”
Our unique Flax Pod cabin is a repurposed shipping container with cool views of Golden Bay. It suits a couple, has a queen bed, sofa and basic kitchen facilities. Bifolding doors open onto a deck where you can totally relax, enjoy a cold beer and soak up the sea views. Its in a great location and a great base to explore Golden Bay from. Enjoy getting back to the basics, dozing in a hammock, a friendly weka or two and a spectacular night sky.
“Kim is a great host, her shipping container is a fantastic place from which to discover the delights of Golden Bay. The location is tranquil with a perfect view of the whole bay, sunsets and the night sky.”

“I’ve been staying at Jane’s place for two nights. I should have booked more. The place was the most comfortable, relaxing and heavenish plce I’ve stayed at. The inner yard, just 5 meters to the beach, I had a blast. Even though it was grey, I’ve had the time of my life, having tea in the mornings by the beach. Jane has been the sweetest and kindest host. Communicative and very helpful. She made me feel home, not only the place with extra entrance, but also her very kind way. Very cheerful and contagious. I’d highly recommend that place to everybody. For peace of mind, travel to another dimension. Having jo WiFi was a great gift. The mussels inn is super close with amazing food, very connecting people and WiFi when needed. The location is optimal to get everywhere. Thank you a ton Jane and Brian! It’s been the greatest pleasure 😊🙃”
