For years we have enjoyed many family holidays with our children, grandchildren and friends and it is now time to share our treasured traditional family bach on a limited basis. The bach is on two levels. The first has two bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom (shower) with toilet, and a combined lounge dining area. There is an extensive deck with gas BBQ and outdoor furniture and lighting where you can dine or even cast a fishing line. You can sit on the deck and look over to the Waikawa marina and catch the last of the evening sun. A separate access leads downstairs which is a very large room containing a double and 2 single beds as well as an ensuite with toilet and shower and a washing machine. A door leads out to a lower deck right on the waters edge complete with outdoor sink for cleaning fish etc. At high tide you can tie your boat up to the bach and at low tide there is a very small beach. We are only a short drive to Picton and then on to the wider Marlbourgh area with its wineries, market gardens and beautiful coastal scenery. There are plenty of charter boat and fishing trips available as well as cycle and walking tracks. Kayaks, jetski and fishing equipment hire is available close by or bring your own with you. Alternatively just simply sit in the sun and enjoy watching people launch their boats at the ramp or wander around the marina. There is convenient roadside parking at the top of a short gentle access track that takes you down to the bach and water.

    I loved this Bach & it's location! Everyday there were seals swimming close by as well as stingrays, & the kids enjoyed starfish spotting. It was incredibly relaxing, & the house itself was well catered for, clean, tidy & cosy

  • A true "Kiwi bach"

    A true "Kiwi bach". A great place with all the essentials and then some. Idyllic holidaying in the most awesome waterfront property I have come across yet.

    It is good to have a child friendly place that even had a lovely toy box. Safety around the water with gates and rails excellent. No big fancy done up kitchen and stuff, this suits me perfectly. Almost felt at home away.
