Patons Rock Beach Villas


According to Lonely Planet:

Boasting NZ’s highest concentration of yoga pants, dreadlocks and bare feet in the high street, Takaka is a lovable little town and the last ‘big’ centre before the road west ends at Farewell Spit. You’ll find most things you need here, and a few things you don’t, but we all have an unworn tie-dyed tank top in our wardrobe, don’t we?

Takaka has a great selection of nice cafés, bakeries and shops selling quirky clothes and art.
