  • Lovely bach on sheltered bay, perfect for extended family as enough room...

    Lovely bach on sheltered bay, perfect for extended family as enough room for everyone. Kids had fun fishing from wharf and playing with the kayaks. We loved the quiet location but easy access to Picton or Havelock.

    Absolutely beautiful location, we had a fabulous four days and greatly enjoyed the kayaks, rented dinghy, dart board, BBQ and beautiful bay. Perfect for the kids and adults, with the bay shallow and calm enough for the little ones.
