This fabulous and spacious family home welcomes you for your next holiday. Perfect for a classic kiwi summer, relaxing on the two large sunny decks with sea views (front) or garden views (fully fenced flat back lawn). Cook all your meals on the front deck barbie - gas bottles included . Large enough for extended families, or cosy for two with the warm log burner and brand new Alpine spa (Whistler model). The house is fully childproof and fenced so even parents can properly relax. Enjoy Sky TV with sports package on the rainy days.

Boating and fishing are easy with the nearby launching ramp, with a dock for convenient pick-ups and fuel at the wharf (mobil/credit card). There is plenty of parking up our drive for boats and cars. For the energetic, there are two beautiful walking tracks minutes away - Piwakawaka winds its way through native bush and ends at a lovely swimming beach. Archers Track passes thru native and pine forest ending up at Penzance Bay - three hours walking, or can be mountain biked. There are kayaks available for hire in Elaine Bay. French Pass is a 40 minute drive away, offering boat charters and wildlife sea safaris as well as breathtaking scenery. Beach and floating jetty directly below the house - 2 minute walk. An ideal base for hunting/fishing/diving or kayaking. Or just relax and enjoy the birdsong whilst admiring the view.

1hr 20min from Nelson, 1hr 40min from Blenhiem, 2hrs from Picton, 45min from Rai Valley and 20min from Okiwi Bay all on a sealed road.

    We felt so lucky when we arrived to the view from the house, it is stunning. The house is warm and has everything you could need. Plenty for young children to do which was well appreciated! The bay is beautiful. If you are staying a long time be sure to bring plenty of supplies as it is quite remote. The walks near to the property are lovely and we enjoyed French Pass and D'Urville Island a lot! Thank you Gabrielle and Simon for sharing your wonderful property.
