  • This is the ultimate in the quintessential Kiwi Bach

    This is the ultimate in the quintessential Kiwi Bach. The location was unbeatable and the setting unbelievable. The Bach took me back to wonderful childhood memories. I will return!

    Charming Bach in a prime location right on the waterfront. We loved being able to bring our Labrador & borrow the dingy. Would definitely like to stay again

    Wonderful place to stay - peaceful and restful, very comfortable, plenty of reading material, awesome vista from the lounge, seals frollicking in the water just out from the bach every morning, walks ranging from easy to the more challenging, short drive to Picton for shopping, private and quiet setting, friendly locals, the feijoa trees were dropping their fruit and we beat the pukekos to a few! Highly recommend this place as it ticked all the boxes for all 6 of us.
