Adrift In Golden Bay Review

Pure romance here in this Qualmark five star property; a short walk across soft green grass from your own cottage gets you across your own quiet beach to the sea. Sunsets are sometimes enhanced by the company of blue penguins, arriving home from a day out fishing to their nest just up the creek. Daytimes you can swim, kayak, or wander the beach. Each of the five eco-friendly luxury cottages is self-contained and lacks for nothing, and there's a studio unit attached to the house; the doors and windows can be left open for the sound of the sea. To get there drive down the signposted driveway and out towards the coast. Stop just before the sea! Rates range from NZ$280 to NZ$480 and include a breakfast hamper delivered to the units each morning.
