We stayed over New Year for 4 nights. You would think you were the only ones there as it is peaceful and private. We had a beachfront cottage and loved it. Breakfast provisions were excellent, varied and quality products. We had access to the washing...More

Adrift is a special retreat, we stayed in a beach front cottage that ticked all the boxes. The amenities were well considered and we wanted for nothing. Luxurious and soul soothing. We will visit again.
This is a beautiful place right at the sea with a great beach. There are 4 cottages, three with fantastic sea view, one a bite further back and has therefore only limited view. There is also a studio available with excellent view, garden and access...More
Overlooking a beautiful white sandy beach, surrounded by seabirds (including the wonderful Tui's calling and dancing around). A relaxing and peaceful spot. Magic. An easy 10 minute drive to Takaka for food options.More

Great that you enjoyed our peaceful little corner of New Zealand. It has been a good year of flowering for the many flax plants at Adrift so we have had an abundance of Tiu as they feed on the nectar the flaxes produce. We really...More

Hi Rezruf, thanks for your question. You can fly into Nelson airport, then drive from there (1 hour 45 min drive), or you can drive directly from Christchurch. The most direct route is north to Amberly and through the Lewis Pass to Murchison. Head towards Nelson and watch for the turnoff to Motueka where you can join Highway 60 to Golden Bay. You should allow 7 hours driving time. An alternative route is to travel up the east coast to Kaikora and on to Blenheim. From here you head west to Nelson, Motueka and over the Takaka Hill to Golden Bay.
