This large 2 storeyed open plan house has fantastic views of Mahau Sound, Hikapu Reach and Pelorous. There is a private mooring and a diving raft ( lots of fun!).

The large sundeck affords a great opprtunity to relax and enjoy the view. There is a large mown lawn in front of the deck, and a short path down to the beach. A small dingy is available.

There is good road access from Linkwater, where there is a small petrol station, restaurant and store. We are also a short 20 minute drive from both Havelock and the Portage Hotel.

The house is set in 2 acres of mature native bush with glow worms up the driveway at night. The nights are dead still, except for the sound of moreporks calling across the Sound. The moon rises over the water. A claw foot bath on the deck can be filled from the hot tap to provide a wonderful warm bath under the stars!

There is a table tennis table, a half size pool table, and plenty of board games and books to read. There are two TV's, a CD player, and telephone. Bring your own decoder to receive Sky TV. The upstairs lounge and deck gives the kids a place to call their own!

  • Great location with fantastic views into the Sounds

    Great location with fantastic views into the Sounds. This is a very large property with plenty of space. The table tennis and pool table were an added extra. Highly recommended.

    Superb location. The house is awesome. Very well maintained, neat and clean, spacious. Plenty of things to do. We could see the beautiful views of the sounds from rooms, lounge and dining area. We loved it. Excellent choice for a perfect family or group holiday.

    Friends and I had a great time staying at this property, one of the best-equipped houses I have rented. Property was very clean and comfortable and just perfect for the very wet weather we had on the first night. Fire kept us cosy warm and plenty to do.... fab views over the day...very peaceful as well....thanks again to Chris and wife....Georgina - Nelson
