Come and enjoy the charm of Sandy Bay in Kenepuru Sounds. The bach at 21 Sandy Bay Road is one of several holiday homes in the bay nestled into the native bush. The property is accessible by sealed road from Linkwater, which is on the Picton to Havelock Road ( Queen Charlotte Drive). It is approximately one hour’s drive from the Kenepuru Road turnoff at Linkwater

The bach is compact and tidy and yet has all the comforts and amenities to make it a treasured retreat away from home. It's open plan layout includes a dining and fully equipped kitchen area (with fridge/freezer, microwave, electric oven with 4 hobs) living area with a TV that plays DVDs, 2 bedrooms, and a shower room with separate toilet. The sitting room and kitchen both open out onto the deck. There is a sofa bed and a divan in the living room for extra guests.

Activities include swimming, bush walking, tramping, fishing (there is a tin dinghy for the guests to use or bring your own boat), fishing/cruise tours, or dine at one of the restaurants close by. The Portage hotel and restaurant is approx. 15 minutes from the bach and Punga Cove is a 20 minute drive.

We ask visitors to clean up and leave property as found. There is a vacuum cleaner and the floors can be easily swept and wiped over with a mop. It is a very easy care holiday property!

All rubbish must be taken away with you and power and the water must be turned off as you leave according to a sheet which will be sent once a booking is made.

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);
