Board the water taxi from Picton and head across Queen Charlotte Sound to Lochmara Bay arriving 10 minutes later at your own jetty or bring your own boat and moor it on the private mooring. A short walk up the path will lead you to this newly finished waterfront home, sheltered in native bush with spectacular views across the bay.

This single level sun-filled home offers modern living with open plan kitchen, dining and living areas, opening onto terraces on all sides of the house, providing a setting of secluded comfort for any occasion.

Whether it be outdoor dining in midsummer or nestling around the fire playing cards and board games in winter, nature is drawn into this long glassy home. Every room captures views of the bay whilst also being connected with the hill side.

Enjoy breakfast on the north-facing terrace overlooking the calm bay as the morning sun rises. In the heat of the day, you can watch boats, yachts come and go, other water activities come to life, swimming on the beach, or diving from the jetty.

Sheltering from the sun on the rear terrace, you light the barbecue in preparation for the day’s catch off the jetty below.

As the evening draws in, a gentle row in the dinghy to the middle of the bay, the moonlight reflects in the water. It is time to retire to the fire side, and talk of tomorrow’s adventures - snorkelling around the craggy shoreline, or a walk to the bay’s end to link up with the Queen Charlotte Track.

This holiday home is perfect for tranquil relaxation, a romantic get-away or an activity-filled family escape.

  • Location is fantastic, so close to both Picton and Waikawa boat ramps

    Location is fantastic, so close to both Picton and Waikawa boat ramps. Small walk up the hill but the view at the house is definitely worth it! The fire kept us cosy and warm and the sunshine from the day kept the house warm enough for us for the whole evening!

  • Lovely home, fantastic location

    Lovely home, fantastic location. LOVED IT, excellent jetty, Good walk up to the bach, quite steep though, but you do get used to it, wouldn't recommend to people with Physical impairments, House itself would be perfect just the walk up.

    Located on the western side of Lochmara Bay it was perfect for our family gathering. The jetty and mooring were in really good shape and the bach was really lovely. The front deck is especially nice in the mornings with the sun beaming in and the view across to East Bay enchanting as the day progresses. Great walks nearby.

  • Fabulous property with outstanding views

    Fabulous property with outstanding views. Enjoyed popping into Lochmara Lodge on a daily basis - the coffee was great. Thanks a lot. A positive suggestion would be to have a list of items there, such as hair dryer, kitchen utensils etc. We took some stuff with us that we didn't need to.
