Fancy a relaxing holiday in the Marlborough Sounds where you can get away from it all? Then look no further than this fabulous holiday home in Moetapu Bay, Mahau Sound, Marlborough.

An easy 40 minute drive from Picton and just 30 minutes from Havelock.

You’ll wake up to the tuis and bellbirds, enjoy your coffee on the deck and stroll down to the beach for a spot of fishing, a swim or a kayak. Children will be delighted with the miniature glow worm dell in the creek on the property.

This hidden gem is a modern three bedroom home nestled in bush just a stone’s throw from the beach and launching ramp.

It has easy drive on access with plenty of room to park your cars and boat. The lovely flat top section is perfect for ball games.

An ideal summer get-away, this home is also an excellent winter holiday spot complete with log fire.

Easy access to local walks, a short drive to the Queen Charlotte Track and a good base for mountain biking.

A great base for day trips to Nelson, Picton, Blenheim and all the fantastic wineries Marlborough has to offer.

  • It was such a lovely Bach

    It was such a lovely Bach. Plenty of room and cozy fire. Even had the fire ready to light when we got there. Nice touch. Plenty for the kids to do, games, books. And shared the native bush view with the local native birds. Awesome.
