Tai Tane cottage tranquil setting by the sea

 Well equipped kitchen, close to Haveloc, lots of comfy spaces to gather. Lovely batch feeling. 

Tai Tane cottage tranquil setting by the sea

 The cottage is fantastic. A very beautiful location, lots of room, quiet peaceful and everything you are likely to need. We definitely intend to return for another weekend and can highly recommend to anyone. Great for kids too with lots of room, board games etc. 

Pelorus Sound farmhouse

 Location was great. Great fishing and very safe swimming. Lifejackets supplied. The kids enjoyed the friendly goat, ewe, and her lamb wandering around. The farm is VERY peacefull and very big. There were plants that I have never seen before. This is a marvelous location with mavelous hosts. And I want to recommend Del from - Havelockwatertaxis too. 

Ngakuta Bay's Beauty Bach was warm but airy,it was very relaxing to sit in the comfortable chairs in the lounge and look at the view at the end of the day.The view was quite special and the bay was great for swimming and a good site for boating in the Aueen Charlotte Sound. 

Peaceful, private & stunning  views

 The view was spectacular and we loved how much character the Bach had. Very family friendly. 

An ideal base to discover the Marlborough Soun

 Great house, great location, would definitely recommend
