  • Sunny, expansive sea views
  • Right on the Queen Charlotte track
  • Surrounded by native bush and birds

Step out the door and go for a walk, run or bike on the beautiful Queen Charlotte Track, or stroll down to the beach to swim or fish off the jetty, or just lounge in the private grassy backyard, surrounded by tui, keruru, bell birds and the occasional cheeky weka. You are surrounded on two sides by native bush, and have glorious views out across the Sound.

This is a classic rugged family bach. It is not luxurious . You can be free from TV here! It is very comfortable, and we've updated the things that matter: fabulous new Queen-size beds, lots of fridge space, a new filtered water system, and plenty of outdoor furniture. In winter the log fire keeps it warm and there is plenty of firewood.

A new cabin has been added behind the house. It has a queen bed, and a mezzanine suitable for two children.

Unbeatable location: road access and a short drive to Picton, 40 minutes to Marlborough's vineyard trails, close to the beach, yet very private, and right on one of the country's most beautiful walking tracks.

Special conditions: Smoking allowed outside only Dogs OK with prior approval (no cats please, because of the native birds)

    We loved staying at this delightful family Bach. Highlights being the glorious wood burning and plenty of books and board games for the rainy weekend

    This Bach was like being allowed to stay in a special big part of a families life . The position of the bach was not just unbelievable being the last house before the Queen Charlotte track but in it's beautiful ability to be a kiwi batch and to have had such incredible views changing every day from it's deck . We stayed for 6 nights and felt a real connection to this part of NZ at the end . Thanks Jan for sharing and highly recommend for a true kiwi experience. Ray and Rose Perth
