STOP PRESS: November 2016

Reassuring potential guests that this bach and Moenui settlement came through the large North Canterbury/ Marlborough earthquakes unscathed.

A relaxing, tidy, waterfront, sunny property including a sleep out 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. In May 2016 a couple from overseas chose to get married on the veranda. 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.

A sunny sleep out (4th bedroom) can accommodate the extra family or teenagers to allow personal space. Has even been used as a recording studio for local band 'Little Oceans' (Check out the soundtrack on youtube for 'Eyes Closed' with visuals from this bach!).

Plenty of fun to be had exploring, having adventures or just relaxing on the deck. When tide permits, the sit on top kayaks (supplied), can be launched from bottom of the section. At low tide there are plenty of alternative beaches, rivers and local school pools within close proximity. The mud is fun too!!

Boat launching ramp in the bay or nearby Havelock (10 mins drive). Mooring available. Aside from boating, fishing, swimming, Moenui is an ideal base for local walks (new Linkwater Pathway, Queen Charlotte Track), fantastic mountain biking, sea kayaking, water taxis, mail boat, world class Marlborough vineyards, Omaka Air force Museum and Rainbow ski field in winter. Pick up a hamper from 'Apples for Charlotte' destination cafe, or sample world renowned green lip mussels at the local famous Mussel Pot cafe, Havelock.

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

    Very glad that the bach kept you safe in the earthquake. You were champions and patient, enduring 7.8 earthquake, torrential rain and flooding and an extra long drive back home. Thanks for your communication post earthquake. Very welcome back

  • Wow, what a bach! We immediately thought about extending our stay when...

    Wow, what a bach! We immediately thought about extending our stay when we arrived! We were very unlucky with the weather - but as the bach is very comfy, has a lot of amenities, a very well equipped kitchen and still a fantastic view out of living and sleeping room, we still enjoyed our time a lot. Will definitely recommend and hopefully come back myself! Thanks for sharing this beautiful piece of paradise.
