Up to six people can enjoy the three bedrooms and if you need more space there is an independent cottage on the property that can accommodate a further 2 guests (please check for availability).

And if you wander the five minutes to the village you will find restaurants, cafes, a gallery, information centre, kayak tours, green lip mussel cruise, ships chandler (with boat hire), museum, tennis courts, 4Square, bowling club, Havelock Marina & launching ramp, bird watching, walkways,

Explore a little further out and you will discover the Pelorus River where parts of the ‘Hobbit’ movies were filmed, Canvastown where the rush of gold attracted people to the area, to the west is Nelson, to the East is Blenheim and in almost every direction you will find the fine grapes of Marlborough being processed into delicious portions for you to taste or take home. Picton has a combination movie theatre and aquarium and is especially irresistible to the children. Marlborough offers hunting and fishing in the surrounding areas.

  • Lovely house, great location

    Lovely house, great location. Excelllent bathrooms (including good showers and water pressure); well equipped kitchen. Lisa was very friendly and easy to deal with. Will definitely stay here again when in the area next.

  • Perfect location on the water

    Perfect location on the water. Very short walk to the main street with shops and restaurants. Beautiful home that is charming, cozy and beautifully equipped. When we arrived, fires were going in the kitchen wood stove and living room fireplace. Will definitely be back.
