“Very comfortable Bach with wonderful views”
Reviewed 3 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Separate two bedroom cottage sleeps three. New, extremely well-equipped, very clean and comfortable.
Much thought has gone into the setting and finish of the cottage e.g. A roll-top bath set outside behind a modesty screen where one can languish enjoying the view..
The cottage is set on an elevated bench cut into the hillside in towering limestone hills. The outside seating area gives wonderful panoramic views of a well-treed grazing landscape. The setting western sun is strong but there is an a/c to cool the cottage and the deck which lines three sides of the cottage gives a shaded spot for late afternoon sitting.
Jean is a wonderfully hospitable hostess.
Ten to 15 minutes from Takaka where there are a number of eating options - The Brigand is recommended - and the cottage has a good kitchen and an excellent Webber BBQ outside.
Very peaceful, isolated, cottage and a great base for exploring the region.

“Beyond Perfect”
Reviewed 17 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We loved it here -- absolutely loved it. In every single way. Believe me, we have traveled the world and know the difference between good, mediocre and poor. And Rocky Ridge was perfection. The view, of course, was heavenly. But if it were just that it wouldn't be enough to make us happy. The cabin was absolutely immaculate -- IMMACULATE. So starting with that it only got better. EVERY single item in the kitchen that we needed to cook all our meals for 5 days was there at our fingertips. The owners had truly thought it all through. The WiFi was strong and fast. The TV channels numerous. The beds comfortable with plenty of pillows and blankets, etc. The BBQ grill was easy to use. We bought our groceries and cooked. But apparently in Takaka 10 minutes away there are several nice restaurants -- we just didn't need them. One more thing: the decor in the house was really pretty and the garden was well maintained and neat. Even fresh herbs available for us to use!

DO NOT hesitate to book here -- all the reviews you see that are positive about this place are spot on!

“Perfect place to relax”
Reviewed 17 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Thanks Jean for the use of your brilliant cottage. Rocky Ridge is perfectly positioned to explore Golden Bay and Abel Tasman., Takaka is nearby for fabulous meals in a variety of inexpensive places.
The cottage is extremely well appointed and very comfortable. It is clear a great deal of thought and care has gone into making your stay a memorable experience. Surrounded by nature and an abundance of views in all directions. A perfect place to relax and unwind.

“First-class holiday cottage”
Reviewed 4 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Rocky Ridge has totally spoiled us! We have stayed in many cottages in NZ and the UK over the years, but this place is the best so far. The location, with its almost 360 degree views, is amazing. The cottage itself feels brand new, with high-quality touches, from the comfy beds to the luxurious bed linens and towels. The kitchen is fully equipped with the highest quality cookware we have ever seen in a rental. The strong wifi and nice TVs kept us entertained in the evenings after long days exploring and walking in this wonderful part of the South Island. Jean was so nice to deal with. We stayed eight days and really did not want to leave.
