Unique and eco friendly self-contained 1 room studio. Relax and unwind in this lovely bush setting, positioned for sun with a view through the bush to the Onekeka Inlet. Cosy and warm at night (with woodburner for winter warmth). Comfortable queen size bed in main room and spare double mattress in mezzanine loft. Decks on three sides to enjoy the peace and tranquility of bush and birdsong, sunsets and stargazing. Cook your meals on the gas bbq or in the kitchenette with electric cooking facilities. Take a soak in the bath/shower on the covered back deck in bush surroundings. With sustainable, environment-friendly living the goal on this property, recycling is encouraged here. The composting toilet is clean and user-friendly. Qualifed naturopath, massage therapist and craniosacral therapist Carolyn is available nearby for consultations by appointment. (View ***yourfloweressences*** for more info). Great for a retreat or as a relaxing home base from which to explore the tranquil beauty of Golden Bay. Rustic and romantic. Onekaka is a great location, halfway between Takaka and Collingwood Townships. Here you`re in the heart of Golden Bay, the perfect location to explore our many beautiful attractions in either direction. Onekaka Beach is a 2 minute drive away. Walk up the road to the famous Mussel Inn Bush Cafe which offers meals, their own boutique beers and wines and a diverse range of entertainers (see ***musselinn***). See the glow worms as you walk back home after dark. Walk through virgin beech and rimu forest in nearby Washbourn Reserve or make the longer trek uphill to the Onekaka dam.
"Fabulous! Lovely, clean and relaxing. We were woken up by a chorus of birds and then wandered over to Carolyn`s house for a wonderful relaxing massage. We left feeling completely recharged. Thanks Carolyn, we will see you again."
"Just what a summer retreat should be like. We are keen to return next summer."
"Fantastic venue and helpful in sorting out the booking. Would definitely recommend this place as was a fantastic little sun trap."
