Cosy retro cottage in private native bush garden

 The house is just a short walk and even shorter drive from the town centre and has a real bach feel to it. Nice quiet location, with easy access to walking and mountainbike tracks (e.g. Picton to Waikawa Bay or to Bob's Bay for a nice swim).

See stunning Kenepuru Sound views from the deck.

 Great house (spacious and everything you need is there) and amazing location (great for walks on the Queen Charlotte track or to enjoy water activities). We loved staying here!

Cedar Cottage - Queen Charlotte Drive

 Really well situated. Far enough away to have a nice, peaceful holiday but still very close to Picton + Havelock and all the wonders of the sounds. The cottage it self is modern and very clean, has a really unique stair case and has everything you need. The hosts Karen & Marty are very welcoming and pleasant hosts. Would highly recommend and defiantly stay again when we are up that way. Celia And Marc - Dunedin

Sounds View Bach - Tranquil, Idyllic, Relaxing

 Fantastic views. The bach was very well equipped and tidy, great shower. The kids enjoyed looking for crabs at the beach at low tide, jumping from the jetty by the Queen Charlotte track at high tide and fishing for spotties in the evenings using mussels as bait!. We had amazing weather only wished the water was a bit clearer. Thank you very much, what a lovely part of the world.
