A stay here is about so much more than just the accommodation. Wander through the beautiful five acre sub-tropical gardens that surround the property, borrow one of the kayaks or canoes from the boathouse to discover the unspoiled Takou River, paddle upstream, or head downstream to the beautiful and deserted sandy beaches at Takou Bay. Hunt for shellfish, driftwood, and shells, or swim, picnic, and explore.
Explore the 150-acre organic farm along marked walks that follow the river, through pastures and native bush to secluded swimming and picnic spots. Sit peacefully and watch the diverse and abundant bird life, relax and romance in the private alfresco claw foot bath or the magical free-standing hot tub. Indulge in a gourmet meal or replenish with some of the wonderful massages or spa treatments. Or simply lie back, relax and bask in the bliss of doing absolutely nothing.
Takou River is surrounded by a pristine and beautiful coastline. Volcanic rock formations combine with stunning sandy beaches and offer something for everyone, from the committed surfer, to the more relaxed holiday maker.
