Torrent bay is accessible by boat or by walking the Abel Tasman National park track. We can recommend Wilson Abel Tasman water taxi service to get you there. They run a fantastic service which leaves from Kaiteriteri. Or if you choose to walk the track it takes 3 hrs - 3.5 hrs and leaves from Marahau with bueatiful views along the way. There is a low tide track across to Torrent bay inlet or a high tide that takes approximately 45 minutes longer which goes past cleopatra pools.

Enjoy a lazy get away to a place that offers peace & relaxation with the option of switching gears and taking a short or long jaunt in the bush.

Watch the tide come in from the window fill the estuary. Cross the same estuary at low tide to visit the ever enchanting Cleopatra Pools.

Let kids be kids to explore, swim & make memories.

    The bach is quaint and delightful in an excellent location meters from the waters of the lagoon and with a sliver of a view to the inlet so you can always keep an eye on the tides.

  • Fabulous location right on the beautiful estuary

    Fabulous location right on the beautiful estuary. You can take your dinner down to the picnic table and eat it there with a gorgeous view. Bach is older style so you need to be prepared for a few idiosyncrasies but it is also charming and functional with a lovely sunny deck out the back. We loved our stay there!

  • A homely bach in the most amazingly beautiful location

    A homely bach in the most amazingly beautiful location. Just what we needed to wind down from the year. I would 100% recommend this place to anyone! We feel very lucky to have stayed there. If you are coming in a water taxi with a bunch of stuff, use the trailers by the wharf to save yourself multiple trips from the beach to the house!
