This large 2 storeyed open plan house has fantastic views of Mahau Sound, Hikapu Reach and Pelorous. There is a private mooring and good off road parking for cars and boat trailer.

The large sundeck affords a great opportunity to relax and enjoy the view. There is a large lawn in front of the deck, and a short path leads down to the beach through native bush. A small dingy is available, together with two kayaks.

There is good road access from Linkwater, 10 minutes away, where there is a good country pub and a local store which sells fuel. We are also a short 20 minute drive from both the cafes and bars in Havelock and the famous Portage Hotel further into Kenepuru Sound.

The house is set in 2 acres of mature native bush with glow worms along the driveway at night. The nights are dead still, except for the sound of morepork owls 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 are 5 bedrooms. Two upstairs, including a master bedroom with a private ensuite, and three downstairs, including one with a queen size bed and great view through sliding doors across the sun deck

There is a table tennis table in the upstairs lounge, a half size pool table downstairs, and plenty of board games and books to read. There is a TV, a DVD player, and a CD player, and a landline. Bring your own decoder to receive Sky TV over and above the Freeview options. The upstairs lounge gives the kids a place to call their own, with a separate VHS video player and mini music system!

There is also an office area with a desk set up with good WiFi, a landline, and photocopier printer.

NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave; Bring your own linen (towels/sheets/tea towels);

  • Excellent views

    Excellent views. Bath on the deck is so simple but amazing, who needs a posh spa bath, this was far better. Log fire cosy. House very large but warm. Great walk from house that took us a lot longer than the 2 hours we expected but worth it. Very friendly locals, both human and animal. Pool table was fun. Great time will be had by anyone who goes

    "The photo's don't do it justice" is a term that gets thrown around. But wow, this place certainly blew us away once we got there. We had an incredible weekend, what a beautiful bach that felt incredibly welcoming. It rained most of our trip but it didn't bother us at all. There's plenty do, or just enjoy the view. Also a warm bath in the rain at night with a glass of wine is a treat you won't get many places. A huge thanks and I wouldn't look anywhere else for future stays.

  • I could not recommend this property more highly

    I could not recommend this property more highly. It was as described, about 20minutes from Havelock. The photos do not do this property justice- the view is incredible. Although it was cold outside, the house was lovely and warm with the fire going. The house had everything you could need including a very well equipped kitchen. We will definitely be looking to stay here again!

    Great place for more than one family, the two levels made it so easy for everyone to have their own space, the pool and table tennis tables were well used as well as was the bath on the deck with the best views in town.... The place was lovely and tidy and clean when we arrived and we all really enjoyed our time here
