Adrift in Golden Bay Details 

Overview

Golden Bay beachfront accommodation
5-star luxury, situated on the waters edge of quiet, private, sandy Tukurua beach in the Nelson Tasman region of the South Island, New Zealand
Five private, self-contained Beach Cottages and a Studio spread over 1 hectare of landscaped gardens ensures guest privacy and a peaceful, relaxed and romantic atmosphere.
Adrift in Golden Bay is a small, family owned and operated establishment so you can be confident of receiving a warm, personal welcome and genuine, friendly Kiwi hospitality...
Cottages and Studio are serviced daily and include a DAILY hamper of breakfast provisions.
All accommodations look out over the clear, blue, sheltered waters of Golden Bay.
Careful planning and landscaping have maintained guest privacy in each accommodation; each unit has its own path down to the beach, except the two Beachview Cottages, which share a path.
Adrift caters only to adults and children over 12 years of age.
All accommodations are non-smoking, but guests may smoke outside.
Adrift accommodation has been created as a small, peaceful eco-resort so you can enjoy the natural, restful sounds of birdsong, waves laping on our sandy beach and our trickling stream.
We discourage the use of motorised water or beach craft and frequent use of helicopters.
The closest public road is 1 km away so there is no traffic noise.
All heating has been chosen to be totally silent in operation, In summer, sea breezes and ceiling fans provide natural air-conditioning.
Beach Cottages
Adrift in Golden Bay has five luxury, 1-bedroom holiday cottages. All of the cottages are of the same design and have the same facilities, differing only in their outlook and proximity to the beach...
Honeymoon Cottage:
Situated across a trickling stream, with it's own private lawn stretching down approximately 30 metres to the beach, the Honeymoon Cottage has breathtaking views over Golden Bay. The most secluded with (arguably) the most stunning view.
Beachfront Cottages:
Approximately 30 metres from the beach, our two Beachfront Cottages share a front lawn but with careful planning and landscaping, remain private. Expansive views over Golden Bay.
Beachview Cottages:
Approximately 80 metres from the beach, our two Beachview Cottages are nestled on either side of a spring-fed trickling stream and are surrounded by lush garden. Both are slightly elevated for a view of the sea.
