A private 3-room guest chalet located 3.5km from Takaka. Renovated to high standards, offering compact, comfortable living for a couple (or single person): Queen bedroom with luxury bed linen; shower room; sitting room with kitchenette; small garden with its own deck and BBQ.


Kotare Muse (named for the NZ kingfisher that often pauses for thought nearby) is our charming guest chalet located in a garden setting adjacent to our home.

Thoughtfully refurbished to maximise the living space, with quality furnishings throughout, the good-sized bedroom features a comfortable queen bed dressed in luxury linen, complemented with a large wardrobe (includes shelves & drawers), bedside drawers and an easy chair. En suite shower room with toilet & vanity. The cosy living room has two comfy leather recliners, FreeView TV, dining table and chairs, plus a kitchenette amply equipped with everything needed to prepare light and easy meals: kettle, toaster, microwave, small fridge, sink and utensils (please note there is no hob or oven available). Double French doors open onto a covered veranda with garden views, creating a light and airy atmosphere; a perfect relaxing holiday retreat after a busy day exploring Golden Bay's environs.

In addition:
• Quality gas barbecue with side-burner, plus accessories.
• Deck with table and chairs for al fresco relaxing.
• Insect screens on all windows.
• Heaters in all rooms.
• Electric blanket for warming the bed on cooler nights.
• A selection of books & games for lazy days.
• A selection of brochures & leaflets about the many things to do locally.
• Wi-Fi Internet.

Accommodation is for a maximum of two responsible adults, and is not suitable for children of any age. The living spaces are on two levels, so unfortunately would not be appropriate for people with limited mobility.


Guests have exclusive use of our private chalet, deck and small garden area. Safe off-street parking (with security camera) for 1 car (height limited to cars and SUVs) or street parking for high vehicles, those carrying kayaks or towing boats. Guests will be sharing our driveway and property access through a garden gate.


When possible we will welcome our guests on arrival. We live on-site and our office is just across the road, so guests may see us passing by occasionally. We respect our guests' privacy, but would be happy to chat or offer advice and suggestions about the many exciting things to do in and around Golden Bay.


For international travellers: Nous parlons français / Hablamos español.

In our professional lives, we are accomplished nature photographers and authors, so Kotare Muse features some of the books and photographs from our various worldwide expeditions.

WOW! You will not be disappointed by staying in Julie's cottage. It is perfect for anyone that appreciates attention to detail and clean, modern, cheerful surroundings that are quiet yet close to everything. Julie and Mark go out of their way to make you comfortable and happy with your time on their property. The experience was top notch beginning with fresh baked biscuits and cookies. The cottage is modern and very clean with lovely decorating and high quality linens and towels. Lovely fresh flowers with gardens on the property. We were extremely content with our stay. Nice landlords with local knowledge for exploring.

Julie and Mark are such a delightful couple who greeted us like friends upon our arrival! We immediately felt at home in their cottage which is a lovely hide away, a beautiful space, clean and tidy. Julie spoilt us with home baked scones, raspberry jam and cookies and both of them were so helpful giving us any advice about the area, all of New Zealand in fact. Highly recommend staying with them if you want to feel at home while traveling!

Julie and Mark are both extremely warm and friendly, and instantly made us feel right at home. The Kotare Cottage is cozy, warm, and equipped with absolutely everything a weary traveller could desire. And they are located right at the heart of Golden Bay, and personally overflowing with interesting and pertinent information about all the wonders of Kahurangi and Abel Tasman parks and surrounding area. We couldn't dream of a more perfect place to stay!

Julie & Marks place is a haven. Peaceful and very comfortable after a day out sightseeing. Home baking was an added bonus too.

Julie and Mark are great hosts and they have thought of absolutely everything to make their accommodation just so comfortable and inviting. Although they call it 'bijou' there is more than enough room for two, the bed and bedding are top quality and the lounge area with tv is ideal to sit in and chill on those evenings when you've been out all day and need somewhere to relax. We would have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation to anyone wanting a quiet break in beautiful Golden Bay.
