“Lovely quiet accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012

This is a quality Golden Bay accommodation located away from the main town centre nearby a long, secluded beach. There are only 4 units, no traffic and very well appointed. We stayed two nights in Unit 2, with good sized bedrooms, storage and facilities. Very clean and comfortable. Only 5 minutes away is a little gem: The Mussel Inn. A great pub with great food (no deep fryer!!) and their own beers and cider. The Villas are about half way betwwen Collingwood and Takaka. Takaka is a beautiful little town with flower baskets abounding! Collingwood is the starting spot for trips out to Farewell Spit, well worth a trip.

Room Tip: Although all Villas are the same, Villa 4 perhaps has the best outlook.

Mum and I were extremely pleased with our villa stay and could not fault it. Nadine was friendly and helpful and we were thrilled to receive a brekky basket on arrival. The view is breathtaking and the gardens are a joy to wander thru with lots of interesting discoveries to make. Plenty of room in the well appointed villas, every need is taken care of. Clean, bright and modern. Loved the large shower! We enjoyed the tranquility with easy access to the stunning beach. Would definitely stay again!

Hello ladies, thank you so much for your glowing review!

Being out of the main centre of Takaka and off the main highway, most visitors to Golden Bay are unaware of Patons Rock, with its stunning beach and peaceful little community.

Thank you for recognising the thought and effort that goes into ensuring our villas are clean, comfortable and of a high standard. We are fortunate to have the space and beautiful surroundings to provide a motel experience that is above the expectations of most first time guests.

I am delighted that you found us and enjoyed your stay and I look forward to seeing you again.

We have found the best motel ever, so very sorry we didn't find it earlier.
Special thanks to Nadine for making our stay so memorable.
Really appreciated the comp breakfast & the spacious, spotlessly clean units, we hope to return.
Have rec it to our friends & told the Hamilton office of the AA to put it on their list too.
Highlight of our trip to Golden Bay.

Hello Susan
Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay with us - and for your glowing recommendation!

Many first time visitors to Golden Bay like yourselves tend to stay in town (Takaka) or follow the crowds to Pohara on the eastern side of the bay. I am delighted that a disappointing first choice of accommodation led you to our western side of the bay and the discovery of such a peaceful area and stunning beach.

It was a lovely to meet you both and a pleasure to have you stay.

Thank you again

Nadine

Extremely convenient to some of the country's most exciting beach destinations. Breakfast fixings provided were unusually nice for NZ and much appreciated.

We stayed together with local friends who come back year after year.

If price not a big deal you will like this place.

This was our second visit to Patons Rock Beach Villas and won't be our last. The villas are modern, well appointed, roomy and very clean. Set in a tranquil park like setting with all day sun and great outdoor bbq, socialising area. My 15 year old son was amazed at how peaceful and quiet it was. Only a few minutes walk to the beautiful beach. This is a great place to base yourself while exploring the amazing Golden Bay region.

I've stayed several times at Patons Rock Beach Villas and each time I know I'll want to return!
Although not needing it, each of the four villas was recently refurbished - which shows that the owners care about what they provide for their regular and casual guests. The welcome is warm and discreet, the villas are spotlessly clean, ingredients for a cooked breakfast the next morning are set up on the table and in the fridge.
In the spacious, well kept gardens there is a large barbecue area, a stream which soothes you to sleep at night and if the tide is in, you'll hear the sea lapping on Paton's Rock beach - just a 5 minute walk away.
Golden Bay is all about nature and relaxation. Its remoteness is part of the attraction for Kiwis and overseas visitors too. I'll never have too many visits to this magic spot and great accommodation.

Room Tip: All villas are identical

We stayed here for the second time in four years. The villas had new furniture and curtains. It was clean and there was a bbq for each villa. After our arrival they bring us a 'bag' full with breakfast-items. The villas are 10 km from Takaka, so you must do your shopping there. The villas are situated near the beach (5 min. walk) on a peacefull road. We have enjoyed our stay again.
