This world famous area is known for Outward Bound School, great walking tracks, tranquility and a natural environment that will make you want to stay longer. Native birds and plants so enjoy a chance to relax.

We are so close to everything and most things are just a drive away. . . . or a walk in the local area.

A large property with a huge outdoor deck with table and chairs, BBQ and heaps of extra seating for when friends pop over and located to the side of the house and enclosed in privacy. A balcony surrounds the house on the top level, you will wake up with the subtle sounds of native birds, enjoy a large and relaxing garden.

UPSTAIRS: Two bedrooms located upstairs, main bedroom with a queen bed and views down Marlborough Sounds from bed !
Second bedroom is a day bed that opens to a King size bed or can be two singles side by side.
Top level has a stylish bathroom with shower and all amenities.
There is also a large dining table and open plan lounge dining room with a flat screen TV, CD and DVD player. If wet, plenty of books, games and an open fireplace in winter.

The kitchen is full of everything you need - we are passionate cooks so it is fun to cook, read all the recipe books and watch the water from all rooms. We often get dolphins in the area.

DOWNSTAIRS:, there is a large lounge / bedroom area with either two single beds or this can be one King size bed. A new flat screen TV is located here with a bathroom - shower, toilet and laundry area. Small deck outside and again, there is a view from bed.

Laundry and bathroom adjacent to this room with shower.

We also have two portable (rollaway) beds that are great for children / young adults and these can be set up downstairs where there is plenty of space.

There is a long driveway so if travelling with others, all cars and boats can be parked onsite.

A short walk to the jetty and water taxis drop off at Anakiwa Jetty, a little further around the bay. No other public transport in this area.
I can assist with fabulous contacts for cheap rental cars. We use them when we go to the house.

We have a local hotel where there is a limited menu available.
PICTON is approx 30 mins drive around the waters edge and there is a group of cafes, restaurants and other amenities there.

BLENHEIM is approx 45 mins away and plenty of supermarkets, cafes and bars. NELSON is approx 1 1/2 hrs drive - very artistic community and great market on Saturday morning. Worth the early drive over the hill to get there.
They also hold a regular Farmers Market is really worth the drive. Great food entertainment and local producers.

We are close to all the world famous wineries in Marlborough and you will want to pick up a bottle or two and bring back for dinner at home.

There is a local service station with some basic food supplies or a trip over the hill to HAVELOCK (home of the green lip mussel) for a supermarket and cafes.

We have no landline phones at the house however, we use mobiles and also use a Vodafone dongle (wireless stick) on the computer for internet access.

Please ask me questions so I can assist you to have the best stay in our region. We also have farmers markets with fresh produce and crafts available.
