Remotely nestled on the hill between beautiful Wainui bay and Totaranui beaches, right next to the famous Abel Tasman National park, this little bush cottage offers outstanding views and privacy amongst the wilderness of the NZ native bush.
Totos Bush Cottage is an earth building, entirely self powered by solar panels and a micro-hydro, built and crafted by ourselves from sustainable, natural materials, a place where comfort meets paradise!

Stedet
Totos Bush Cottage is newly built and is an eco-friendly earth building constructed with a "back to nature" spirit where guests can feel part of the natural surroundings, with comfort.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION CAREFULLY

- The main building is a 10m² bedroom and small lounge area offering exceptional views of beautiful Wainui bay and the sea beyond, all while surrounded by pristine nature.

- It is very well insulated and the earth walls keep well the warmth.
There is also a heater for a maximum of comfort during the colder months.

The simple outside kitchen has all what you need to cook:
- a stove top,
- little bar fridge
- coffee plunger & co
- a gaz barbecue!
- There is no oven nor microwave

- The shower and the compost toilets are detached, not directly attached to the bedroom, about a dozen meters away.

- lovely outside bath from which one can take in the stunning views or the amazing night sky.

- Keep in mind that there is a 2 minutes walk up to the cottage from the car park, on a unsealed path.

- We are totally off the grid so we generate all our power thanks to a Micro Hydro and solar panels

- Our little Totos Café & Pizzeria, specialised in wood-fired pizza, is 2 minutes walk away, with great views over the sea and the bush. It is also an earth building entirely built, decorated and operated by us.
- It is at the cafe that there is access to free limited WiFi 24hrs, and the flush toilets.

CAFE TRADING HOURS: check with us, or online, Google or Facebook

- From the cottage you can access a wonderful little walk on our property, which will bring you again the top and will offer you one of the most stunning view over Golden Bay up to Farewell Spit and the sea beyond!

- Although there is a short walk from our little café to the cottage, it is a very private and quiet place, perfect to recharge in the middle of nature with awesome views.

The cottage is located on a hillside amongst the native bush that is home to a variety of native birds, like the reclusive south island Tomtit, Bellbirds, Wekas, grey warbler, etc.
Wether you wish to recline under the shade of a tree fern and let nature massage your worries away, visit some of the many delights the Northern Abel Tasman National park bordering the property, the choice is all yours.

Andre ting det er verdt å merke seg

Wainui bay, Tasman, New Zealand

We are located on the heights of beautiful Wainui Bay, on the hill toward Totaranui campground in the Abel Tasman National park, Golden Bay side (look for Totos Café & Pizzeria), 35 min drive from Takaka.
It is a remote place so it is best to arrive in the day time if you can.

Our property is bordering the entrance of the northern part of the Abel Tasman National park.
So being right here in the middle of the native bush means there are many fantastic beaches and bush walks close buy in the park:

- To start, we have a beautiful walk on our property, which will offer you one of the most stunning view over Golden Bay up to Farewell Spit at the top.

- From Totos Bush Cottage you can park at Pigeon Saddle, the entrance of the Abel Tasman national park (5min drive away) and walk the Northern (and nicest!) part of the Abel Tasman for a full day walk.

- It is at 10min drive from Wainui bay and 20 min drive from Totaranui beach

Our favorites short walks are:
- the walk from Totaranui to Anapai beach,
- the little forest walk from Pigeon saddle (Inland track) among big old rimus, ratas, miro and others native trees, up to a lookout rock, around 15 min with beautiful views over the native bush and the sea, a real forest bath!

- The walk from Wainui Bay to Taupo point, a previous Maori Pa (fortified village) is a great way to spend half a day and enjoy the pristine area.

- There are lovely waterfalls called Wainui falls just down the road (less than 10 min drive away), which is among one of the best short walks in Golden Bay. So much to do!

- The nearest settlement is Pohara, at 25 min drive, were you can pick up basic supplies at the convenience store, and there is a selection of cafés and restaurants, a golf course, a health spa, and more.

- For fuel and supermarket shopping, Takaka is the nearest main town in Golden Bay, at 35 min drive, with many cool places to check out for café, tea room, chocolates, food, craft shopping, go to the village theatre, etc.

- You also have the great possibility to indulge with hand-crafted wood-fired pizza, cold beers, wine, iced coffees and other refreshments at our little place Totos Café & Pizzeria, just 2 min walk away! Be aware we aren't always open, check the trading hours or contact us before coming

- Aside from hikes and beautiful beaches around our place, there are a lot of activities to do in Golden Bay: kayaking, horse riding, salmon fishing, fishing charters, flight in a little plane, golf, many cool cafés, etc. If you want to know more you can ask us or directly contact the Golden Bay visitor center: look for "goldenbaynz"
