Welcome to Shady Rest in beautiful, sunny Golden Bay, at the top of New Zealand's South Island. If you are looking for an elegant but homely spot in Takaka township, then this is the place for you.
Shady Rest is the hundred-year-old grand historic doctor's residence situated on Takaka's main street, set back from the road amongst tall and beautiful native trees.
Shady Rest features three Double En-Suite rooms, two Double Rooms, each with a private bathroom, and one single room, as well as a cozy TV lounge, use of our fully equipped kitchen and all the Bed and Breakfast comforts you'd expect.
We offer a generous cooked breakfast to suit your tastes, cups of tea, relaxing ambience and the perfect base from which to explore Golden Bay's friendly community and breathtaking natural beauty.
There is ample off-street parking, riverside BBQ area and an open fire for the winter.
For a tranquil spot to spend quiet moments, you can sit beside the stream at the end of our garden. Don't be too surprised if the resident ducks and eels come to join you for a snack.
At the end of the day, put your feet up, enjoy a glass of wine and soak in our luxury outdoor bath.
Staying at Shady Rest will make your holiday in this paradisiacal corner of New Zealand a truly rewarding experience.
Whether you are on a family holiday or business, you will be well looked after by your host Mark.
