Description

  • Absolute waterfront - just the front lawn between you and the beach!
  • Stunning island location - Arapawa Island with views across to Resolution!
  • True relaxation - Just peace & quiet, sun & sea, you and nature!

Absolute waterfront. No roads, just the garden to cross before you reach the beach and the water! This is the quintessential Kiwi getaway!

This is it... off the grid (without power), back to basics in the best possible way. Leave behind the TV, the cell phones (if you can) and the stresses of the outside World to while away your days in a true natural paradise!..

For those of you not quite ready to live by the sun, eat each meal raw and fresh from the sea we have included a modern gas refrigerator/freezer, lighting, oven and hob, also... modern flush toilet, running water and a telephone so you can make sure the outside world is still there.

This is the outer Marlborough Sounds, Queen Charlotte Sound, Arapawa Island and boat only access. The bay is shared with just two other holiday homes - chances are you'll have this part of the Island all to yourselves!

Enjoy fishing, beachcombing, bushwalking and mountain climbing. Or simply kick back and enjoy the sun, National Radio or a National Geo.. Enjoy mountain fed water, board games by candles or gas lanterns, the radio not the telly.

Just 30minutes by boat from Waikawa or Picton. Zero minutes to Marlborough Sounds paradise! For those familiar with the Sounds, the bach enjoys excellent views across to Bluemine and Pickersgill Islands and through to Resolution, Endeavour Inlet and Long Island.

Best suited to those with a private boat or yacht, or happy to use one of the local water taxi services. A 2t mooring and dinghy with life-jackets are provided for your use.

Note the bath-tub is a shower bath suitable for bathing children.

Special conditions: Guests must agree to take responsibility for cleaning the bach to its original condition (including turning of all gas and water taps/bottles) and returning linen to the property managers in Picton. All rubbish must be removed and disposed of properly by guests - council rubbish bags are provided. Smoking allowed outside only. Pets are not allowed (the area is home to many native birds including flightless wekas).

  • Fantastic place to stay if you wish to "un plug" and relax

    Fantastic place to stay if you wish to "un plug" and relax. Despite having no power Homebush has all of the necessities required to make the 7 nights enjoyable. Located in a beautiful part of the Marlborough sounds in a very quiet private bay, close to all of the good fishing spots. We will be re booking in the future.
