The Gazebo Golden Bay Backpackers is New Zealand's only clothing-optional nudist-friendly budget hostel.
We offer the smaller, quieter experience while enjoying all that Golden Bay has to offer. The Gazebo Backpackers is a hostel with the feeling of home.
We are conveniently located on a quiet side street just a few minutes walking distance from the full services of Takaka. We are situated midway between three national parks/reserves - Abel Tasman, Kahurangi and Farewell Spit and close to all the beaches of Golden Bay.
And we are just a few minutes walk to the full services of Takaka and the Golden Bay Information Centre.
Clothing-optional means that you can be dressed or go nude - your choice. Many guests find staying here allows them the opportunity to experiment with social nudity yet not feel pressured to do so.
Our motto: Any level of dress is acceptable. Just be yourself and respect others.
The Gazebo Golden Bay Backpackers really is a home. Paul the owner and his friendly dog Raichel welcome you to share it.
Accommodation is usually limited to 5-6 people to allow for a relaxed, friendly feel to the place. In addition, a few garden tent sites are also available.
We provide a comfortable atmosphere for all our guests to choose whatever to wear around the place - from street wear to a birthday suit. Just be yourself and respect others..
Families are welcome but young people need to be over 8 years old as the facilities such as the spa and pond could be considered dangerous for unsupervised children.
