Sunrise Apartment is located in Onekaka, Golden Bay – the hidden paradise of the Nelson/Tasman region, on the north-west point of the South Island of New Zealand. Our large private property looks over the vast ocean of Golden Bay, directly in front of a private beach. Onekaka is half way along the scenic coast between Takaka and Collingwood, and lays on the footsteps of and two of New Zealand’s beautiful National Parks: Abel Tasman National Park and Kahurangi National Park.



We highly recommend that you get a rental car for your stay in Golden Bay. Public transport is very limited and Sunrise Apartment is 16km from the main town and shopping centre, Takaka. There is only one road in and out of Golden Bay, over the Takaka Hill. If you want to experience all of the amazing walks & sights in Golden Bay, a car is a necessity. You can get a rental car at the Nelson Airport or the Golden Bay air strip. For more details please read below.


Sunrise Apartment is 1hour & 45minutes drive from Nelson City. Just head towards Motueka and to Takaka on your maps or by following road signs.

Nelson Airport links from Christchurch, Wellington, Auckland & Queenstown Airports. The two preferred airlines into Nelson are Jetstar and Air New Zealand. There are several car rental companies available at the Nelson Airport. You can find a rental car here.
