VILLA ON THE BAY, Pohara Beach, Takaka, Golden Bay, New Zealand

Not too many properties can boast one of the best views is from the bath, but Villa On The Bay's two ensuite bathrooms have been designed to give guests a feeling of total relaxation. This luxury beachfront villa has two identical master suites – the upstairs ensuite offers extensive sea views, while the downstairs ensuite is surrounded by a garden landscape.

Positioned right on the beachfront of Pohara Beach, in Golden Bay – the quiet northern gateway to the Abel Tasman Park, and offering magnificent views across Golden Bay and the neighbouring 9 hole golf course, Villa On The Bay offers space, views and complete privacy for the duration of your stay.

This luxury accommodation is on two levels, with the master king-sized bedroom and ensuite on the top level, designed on the Asian pavilion-style of living to take advantage of the sun and the views. High white painted beams blend with modern chrome and glass and are softened with antique Asian artifacts. The upper level also boasts an enormous open plan living, dining area and kitchen with a wall of glass windows to make the most of the stunning views outside. The large fully equipped kitchen would inspire even the most hesitant of cooks to enter, and plenty of casual seating either at the bench or the kitchen lounge area means that you'll never be left alone.

The lower level houses the four remaining bedrooms, bathrooms and an additional living area with a home theatre system and a selection of DVDs to choose from. Another identical king-sized bedroom with ensuite is accessed via a linkway for privacy, while the third king bedroom (twin or double) shares a bathroom with the fourth queen-sized bedroom, which has its own private patio leading to the outdoor heated spa pool. A further bedroom has a set of bunk beds and a double bed (this is more suitable for children)

A huge deck wraps around the Villa and there are plenty of chairs and recliners from which to relax and enjoy the views. There is an abundance of outdoor seating, BBQ and hidden away in seclusion you will find a fabulous spa pool located under the stars to view the stunning night skies. Fantastic after a round of golf or a day on the beach!

Whether as a group of friends or a family or two, Villa on the Bay can accommodate all your needs and provides a perfect base from which to explore the many beautiful places this secluded area has to offer.

"An amazing holiday place for the whole family!"

We were a family with grandparents, parents and children enjoying this beautiful and spacious villa. We did not miss anything in the villa and found plenty to do in the surroundings.
Beautiful beach, good restaurants, fishing and sightseeing made the holiday perfect.
We hope to come back some day!

Many thanks for your great feedback, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Villa on the Bay and hope to see you back here again! We have only recently joined Trip Advisor and hope this encourages more families and friends the opportunity to discover this very special part of New Zealand!

"Glorious! The most beautiful house I have ever stayed in."

Wonderful house, wonderful location, fabulous coastal walks in Abel Tasman national park, wonderful busy walks including by nearby fresh water springs, and easy access to Farewell Spit. Highly recommend. All straightforward to organise with Linda's help.

Thank you for your great feedback! We are very happy you managed to explore some of the beautiful walks and scenery that Golden Bay has to offer and look forward to seeing you for your next Corporate Retreat!
