Our Tariffs Exceptional - amongst the best in New Zealand
  • Click Tariff calculator to get an INSTANT exact quote in New Zealand dollars (including tax and a daily breakfast hamper) for the time you wish to stay at "Adrift In Golden Bay"

  • Our aim is to provide value for your money. We are able to do this, we hope, because:
    1. We have always embraced the "farmer's market" philosophy in our past and present businesses, encouraging direct sales and forming a lasting relationship directly with our customers. Therefore almost all of our bookings are made directly with us and we will always quote our very best prices on this (our own) website. If you are booking a vacation in New Zealand through an agent and wish to stay at Adrift, you will probably need to book directly with us. Unlike most accommodation providers, we do not usually take agent bookings, particularly in our high season, as we would then need to increase our prices 20 - 25% to allow for agent commissions. (We also find communicating through a third person (the travel agent) can sometimes be problematic.
    2. Adrift In Golden Bay is run almost entirely by members of our family who all aim to bring you the very best in personal service and most importantly, we enjoy what we do!
    3. We purchased this, our family property, more than 30 years ago when waterfront properties in Golden Bay cost a fraction of their present value.
    4. Over time we hope to eliminate expenses that do nothing to "add value" to to your experience but rather spend money on continuing to develop our beachfront retreat as a place which will bring relaxation, enjoyment and leave nothing but happy memories.

  • There are considerable benefits in travelling to New Zealand in the shoulder season (March, April, October, November and early December) if possible, the most obvious is the cost savings and availability of accommodation.
  • Peak Season- a discount of roughly 10% is given on stays of 7 days or longer. We are normally close to 100% fully booked well in advance but do have "Last Minute Specials" of 10%- 20% discount on some remaining dates.
  • Shoulder Season - approximately 30% discount on the cottage rate and 20% on studio rate, plus an additional discount of approximately 10% is given on stays of 7 days or more.
  • Low Season - almost 50% discount on the cottage rate and 30% on studio rate, plus an additional discount of approximately 10% is given on stays of 7 days or more. All of the dates in our "2015 low season" will not be showing any availability as we are closing for some rebuilding of our home.

  • Our booking system will calculate room rates for the dates you request automatically allowing for these discounts.

  • Some dates have a minimum stay requirement, as the date gets closer this requirement is reduced so that usually within the last 7- 14 days we accept 1 night bookings.
  • If you wish to stay for a shorter time and cannot make a booking, please e-mail us by clicking here or "send us an enquiry" from the link on the booking page, we can then advise you if and when a shorter booking might be possible. We respond to ALL e-mails, usually within 12 hours.
  • Shorter stays may be slightly more expensive to allow for the extra cleaning cost involved in extra turn-overs.
  • To check if we are full on any particular night view our "Availability Calendar" on the Booking page.
  • Our aim is to provide you with a tranquil and relaxed environment. We therefore only accept children 12 years of age and over, the cost is the same as an adult guest.
  • We do not allow dogs or other pets in any of accommodation. Good kennel facilities are available in Golden Bay for those travelling with pets that wish to stay.
  • Christmas Day- We don't do check-ins, check outs or servicing of the cottages on Christmas Day. We are a family run business and as such like to spend time together on Christmas Day (our one day off in the middle of our busy season). Please also note that travelling in New Zealand on Christmas Day can be more difficult; almost all cafes and even most supermarkets and petrol stations are closed on Christmas Day!
