Steve at the Sandcastle took care of us completely. The cabins are spotless clean and contain everything that you need. There is wi fi and our cabin had a kitchen which was perfect for us. The cabins are nestled in the midst of mountains behind and ocean in front. The beach is about a 5 or 10 minute walk away and we could see the water from our cabin window. There is a wood burning pizza over there and Steve shared some amazing wood fired pizzas with us. The vibe is super friendly and peaceful. There are plenty of walks that you can go on and it is easy to lie in the sun or go for a swim at high tide. We needed some time to get away and rest, and it was perfect for us. It is the kind of place that you can take your partner and have a romantic time or bring your family and have some quality time together. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Golden Bay is such a beautiful spot. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there in every way. I highly recommend.
