Queen Charlotte Breakaway Bach

 The property was immaculate, very comfortable and had everything you might need. The location was peaceful and just across the road from the water. There are a couple of good kayaks with all the gear. Set In the beautiful Marlborough Sounds but just a 25 minute drive from Picton. Very welcoming hosts. Would definitely stay there again.

Dreamview Farmstays Raglan

 The property was just perfect for us as we are a couple with one child. The view from the deck of the West Coast was spectacular. Being able to walk around the farm to enjoy the views was great. I have already told numerous people about our stay and have been asked for details of the property.
