  • We had a wonderful stay at The Herons Nest over Easter

    We had a wonderful stay at The Herons Nest over Easter. We were a family of eight and the setup suited our needs perfectly. The kitchen was well equipped and the outside deck felt like another living room for during the day. We were welcomed with a bowl of Easter eggs as well, which wasn't expected by very well received. Thank you.

  • Great location, no water views but a lovely garden/bush setting

    Great location, no water views but a lovely garden/bush setting. The covered deck is an awesome place to sit and relax. The house was clean and tidy with very comfortable beds and everything you needed. Only a short distance from Picton to pick up supplies. Nga Kuta bay is very picturesk and great to kayak around safely.

  • spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped

    spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. Perfect for our 2 night stopover and for 8 adults there was plenty of room. Private and peaceful - Ngakuta Bay was gorgeous. Stairs to upstairs bedrooms would be an issue for elderly or smaller children - and for adults after few drinks :)
