“Absolutely amazing villa!”
Reviewed 2 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We spent 3 nights at the villa in November with our 4 kids and my brother's family of 4. The accommodations were excellent. The furnishings were simply beautiful and the house lacked for nothing. We had a rainy spell when we were there so the spacious house gave us all plenty of room to relax and enjoy the incredible views. We would make the trip half way around the world again to spend time here! Thanks for sharing this beautiful home.

“Perfect Pohara”
Reviewed 13 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The Villa on the Bay was absolutely ideal for our gathering and the chef that came in did a fantastic job, so all round it was a very successful reunion and celebration.

The facilities and comfort (and warmth) left nothing to be desired.

“Stunning & Comfortable Luxury Accommodation on the Beach”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in January 2014

We had a wonderful holiday in this spacious and immaculately decorated villa, it has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay.....a real home away from home! The beds are so comfortable, I had the best sleeps ever! Very private with breathtaking views of the ocean, mountains and golf course. It is by far the best holiday accommodation I have ever stayed in! We will definitely be back.
Thanks for being so awesome!

“Amazing home away from home”
Reviewed 23 May 2015 for a stay in April 2013

Words can't even begin to describe how beautiful this villa is. Luxury is an understatement; this villa is not only beautifully decorated and well maintained, it also feels like home. One of the best parts of my trip to NZ was enjoying my morning coffee sitting on the deck in the sun looking out at what feels like your on private beach. I was also extremely impressed on how clean the entire place was. I am very picky and quite the clean freak so for me to be impressed with how clean this villa is says a lot! I highly recommend adding Golden Bay to your itinerary and staying at Villa on the Bay!

“Spacious and luxurious - what a magical holiday”
Reviewed 19 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

A fabulous choice for a sizeable group. Lots of different spaces for the adults, the kids, the family and a great indoor outdoor flow to host the whole group.

Luxurious comfort. Wonderful views. The kitchen is very well set up and well positioned - we could socialise while cooking.
The location on the beachfront and next to the Golf course was perfect. Great local Cafes / restaurants too.

Great to relax for the whole time also a great base to explore the beaches and features of Takaka and Golden Bay. We will be back.
