  • There and two lovely walks on either side of the bay. Enjoy the beautiful bird song.
  • There is still great fishing only a short boat trip from the ramp.
  • This is a peaceful location with a lot of thought gone into rest and relaxation.

This Bach has been in the Paynter family since 1961 with the forth generation now holidaying In Elaine Bay. The Bach has now become available to rent for families and friends to enjoy and have some time out of their busy lives. There are plenty of games, cards and jigsaws to relax with. The boat ramp is a natural Stoney beach that is accessible in all tides but if you have a heavy boat a four wheel drive is recommended. Fuel is available at the main wharf and takes credit cards and Mobil cards. There is good telecom coverage in the bay and Vodafone out further in the sounds. Vodafone can also be received at the top of the hill as you come into the bay. Elaine Bay is approximately 1.5 hours drive from either Blenheim or Nelson. 45 mins from Rai Valley. Please take your time heading into the sounds and enjoy the panoramic views over Tasman Bay.

Special conditions: Pets are allowed provided they are controlled and cleaned up after. Thought needs to also be given to other holiday makers. There is an old spa pool that can be heated as a hot tub by the outside fire but extreme care must be given to both of these areas and must be supervised at all times.

  • Loved the property

    Loved the property. It was ideally situated with a lovely view out to the Sounds. Good walking nearby. Very quiet and it was great to hear the bellbirds during the day and the morepork at night. Weka came to call but was no bother.
