Immaculate, Private, Family Bach with Sea Views

 The holiday home was in a beautiful location, very close to the beach with lovely views and close to walking tracks. The house was clean and tidy, with very good facilities, and could not have asked for anything else. We loved the BBQ, and eating our meals on the deck overlooking the bay. 

Luxury Accommodation for 2

 Very peaceful and pleasant. Fab design and decor of chalet. Not on waters edge as I would like for perfection but short walk to excellent beach. I definitely recommend it. 

See stunning Kenepuru Sound views from the deck.

 Great place with fantastic views. 

Our 'Peace' Of Paradise

 Fantastic accomodation tranquil location just magic 


 We absolutely loved our summer holiday at Point of View. We had a large family group of 10 and while the living area might have been a bit small if we were all cooped up inside luckily the weather was perfect and we lived outdoors. The beach was fabulous for our preschoolers with sandcastle sand and warm water. The house had everything we needed and the owners had left it looking fabulous for us. I would recommend a stay to anyone. 

Slice of Heaven - Kenepuru Sound

 Great location. Close to Blenheim for a easy weekend getaway. Stunning views and easy access to the beach and jetty. The house was so well appointed and had everything we needed. Lots of space. The big deck was sheltered and private with amazing views. We will definitely go back.
