Mahakipawa Waterfront Hideaway is a two bedroom Marlborough Sounds holiday home, where you can relax and unwind.

This Pelorus Sounds holiday home, has a huge sunny deck that is perfect for resting while dinner cooks on the barbeque, or the kayak can be launched from the front garden. At low tide, you can fossick along the craggy shoreline of the Mahakipawa Arm.

Mahakipawa Waterfront Hideaway is perfect for any water-sport lovers, with 4 children's kayaks, 1 double kayak and 2 paddleboards available for use!

This Belview Bay holiday home is refurbished in keeping with its peaceful native bush setting. It includes many modern facilities so you can have an enjoyable and comfortable stay.

The kitchen and bathroom are new, with shower over the bath, and a dishwasher plus microwave. The open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area opens out to the deck. There are two bedrooms, the first has a queen bed, the second has two sets of single bunks.

Although this accommodation is assessable by major road, the surrounding native bush gives a secluded and private feel, plus provides shelter on most windy days.

To discover the beauty and excellent fishing of the Pelorus Sounds, launch your boat from the community ramp in the bay, or from the commercial ramp at Havelock Marina, where you can also join one of the many cruises that run from there.

The cafes, bars, restaurants and small town charm of historic Havelock are only a short 10 minutes drive away. The start of the Queen Charlotte Track at Anakiwa is only 9 minutes drive, and the famous Marlborough vineyards are just 25 minutes away

  • Wonderful location, very comfortable

    Wonderful location, very comfortable. Entry to house needs to be improved, slightly dangerous if you have any mobility problems. Some trimming of the trees would improve the view. Otherwise we loved the batch and our time there.

    Lovely spot, handy to Havelock recommend Mussel Pot Restaurant, Captains Daughter a bit average, Canvastown has a great swimming hole at Pear Tree Flat, Omaka Aviation Centre worth a look, very interesting, on a wet day, Maybe a bit of tree trimming so we could see the sea better, great deck and bean bags comfy. easy to clean . We spent 10 mins clearing a path to the beach, easy to do this, great flat rock for a cuppa and wines, kayak at higher tides as we got caught on the mud flats - ugh!

  • Loved this place

    Loved this place. Felt so secluded even though you had neighbors. The bach comes equipped with everything you could possibly need! The bach itself is gorgeous! The area is lovely for a spot of kayaking!

  • Easy access to both Havelock and Picton and Blenheim

    Easy access to both Havelock and Picton and Blenheim. We loved how quiet it was off the main road and down the hill with our own little beach. Great to have the Kayaks and life vests there for our use. The house was very tidy, clean and had everything we needed. We appreciated being able to share in the owners little piece of paradise.
