On arrival were greeted by the very friendly hosts Sylvie & Darren & family.There was no accommodation left in Takaka or Collingwood. We were offered the new addition to their accommodation their "Caravan". We had a delightful 2 days with full service to the new caravan. We did view the rooms that were not available on this occasion but we would recommend them as very clean & private.Our hosts booked our trip to Farewell Spit...a very informative afternoon out till sunset.It was an amazing trip with all the bird life & seals ...even stranded whales in the distance...very sad, we climbed sand dunes & watched the Sun set! Dined at the Mussel Inn....Bought Chocolates from Rosy Glow chocolate cottage...Visited the Pupu Springs in Collinwood...purest water in the world....checked out 3 beaches in Takaka.
This was a 1st in the area for us & I can recommend this Motel or Caravan & location.
