Enjoy panoramic views while reading from the sunny deck or luxuriating in the spa bath. Wake to the bellbird's song. Relax while strolling through the native bush, in which our spacious, well appointed home is nestled, or while beachcombing or fishing from the jetty.

If you want activity - it's available! Only 7 minutes wander to the beach - swimming, kayaking and any manner of water fun. A 20 minute stroll and you arrive at the world famous Queen Charlotte walkway - a walker's, jogger's and mountain biker's playground.

Our home is a convenient base to explore this stunning area. A 30 minute drive, or 10 minute water taxi, takes you to peaceful Picton. In 40 minutes you can sample internationally renowned vintages on the Malborough Wine Trail. Nelson and the outer Sounds are within easy driving distance.

Our house is more a home then a bach. It's elevation assures stunning views from most rooms. The property is split level with a few steps leading to the main entrance so it may be difficult access for those less mobile or very young.

    When we first arrived at Johns Place I was struck by the view,high up on the hill overlooking the bay. Incredible. When we went inside we were shocked by how gorgeous the house was. From the HUGE windows which afforded views of the ocean from every room { including the master bathroom} to the furniture and the outside landscaping , totally outstanding. We have never stayed in a nicer vacation home, anywhere. Thanks Glenda.

    Fabulous property, perfectly situated and incredibly well designed and built to make the most of a beautiful, tranquil setting. Set within beautifully cared for gardens which afford lots of options for outdoor living while inside the home everything has been well designed and cared for. I would not hesitate to return as this is definitely one of the best baches I have ever stayed in. The photos do not do it justice. There is much more space than we expected and spectacular views.

  • An outstanding property

    An outstanding property. It is hard to motivate tourists to be tourists when they just want to stay at the bach. A stunning part of the world and just the property to go with it.

    Fantastic Bach with stunning views up the sound, all the way to the ferries going in and out of Picton. Easily the nicest holiday home that we have ever stayed in. Highly recommended.
