Inside this clean, warm, sunny white-washed Cottage we believe you will feel an immediate sense of seclusion, tranquility and well-being.

The king sized bed dressed in white linen and with sea-views awaits you. Kick off your shoes and relax.

Glass balustrades allow uninterrupted views over the water and to the Queen Charlotte Walkway on the distance hills.

The renowned Marlborough wineries and vineyards are only 30 minutes away.

For quieter times, there are books, DVD's magazines for you to use and short walks from the cottage to Waikawa or Karaka Point etc.

  • Very nice and peaceful

    Very nice and peaceful. We enjoyed our stay. Would like to go back there again sometime. The shower pressure was great.

  • A beautiful property set in a peaceful location

    A beautiful property set in a peaceful location. A lot of thought and care has gone into the presentation which is of a very high standard. Unfortunately the property also has some drawbacks. Although the owner can't be blamed, there is very poor cell phone coverage. Despite having both Vodafone and a 2 degrees phone we were unable to make any calls from the property during our 4 day stay. There is also no Wi-fi or Sky T.V. Both of which we expected at a property of this price.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thank you for your great comments. Yes phone coverage In a sheltered bay, hill behind, sea in front & amidst bush, reception can be difficult (telecom works!) We are exploring options this winter and hope to have better reception for summer. (you were welcome to use our wifi, down the track, had we known your concern ~not the same though I know!) Cottage 'description: says "Free View" and some recent and good DVD's. We are happy you enjoyed the cottage, thank you.

  • Only 10 mins drive from Picton this place was well worth being...

    Only 10 mins drive from Picton this place was well worth being out of town for. Right above the water and with everything you need. We had a great stay.
