Description

  • Wonderful Views, relaxation and tranquility
  • Fantastic location for outdoor pursuits & tourist attractions
  • Built to capture the sun & with wood burner it is warm all year round

A relaxing, tidy, waterfront, sunny, property with stunning views of Mahakipawa Sound and surrounding bush clad hills from the extensive sunny deck, living areas and main bedroom. Visitors always comment on its magic ambiance and spend many hours on the veranda absorbing it all.

An original 50's Kiwi bach, which has been extended and modestly upgraded, yet retaining its charm. (Note from the photo that the bathroom is small in its quaint way).

The sunny sleep out (4th bedroom) can accommodate the extra family or teenagers. It has even been used as a recording studio for home grown band 'Little Oceans' (Check out the soundtrack on youtube for 'Eyes Closed' with visuals from this bach!).

When tide permits, the sit on top kayaks can be launched from bottom of the section. At low tide there are plenty of alternative beaches and rivers within close proximity. The mud is fun too!!

Boat launching ramp in the bay or nearby Havelock (10 mins drive). Mooring available.

An abundance of local adventures and exploration - world class hiking, mountain biking (check out the new Link Pathway on facebook) , sea kayaking, Mail boat cruise, wine tastings, Omaka Air Force Museum, good coffee and green lipped mussels from the various Havelock cafes. In winter check out Rainbow ski field.

Ideally located for local events such as Omaka Air Show, The Grape Ride and Whites Bay Enduro.



This central location makes it easy to explore Nelson (1hr) Picton (35mins), Marlborough Sounds, Nelson Lakes, Richmond Range and much more.

Special conditions: A 10th person may be accommodated by prior arrangement Wheelchair access is good to the house, but bathroom facilities unsuitable and split level between living and kitchen Deck and section not suitable for unsupervised small children

  • Our family had a fantastic stay at 'Rooms with a View'

    Our family had a fantastic stay at 'Rooms with a View'. It was one of our favourite accommodations in New Zealand. So much to explore around Havelock and the Marlborough Sounds. To have such reasonably priced family accommodation with amazing views on the water front with mountains surrounding and only 15 minutes drive from town was a real find. If you want modern, luxury, appointed accommodation with all the trimmings this place is not for you. If you Thanks Penny for a great stay.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed the surrounds and change of pace

    We thoroughly enjoyed the surrounds and change of pace. Bath got plenty of use after some busy days for the kids. Impressed with development of local tracks. Recommend to those who do want to go too far of the beaten track for some wonderful flora and fauna and water borne bush clad views.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Glad you tried out the bath and hope the stars were out. The local track development is very exciting and a result of lots of very hard voluntary work from locals. Thanks for staying
