The bach was wonderful, an excellent bach in the Marlborough sounds. It had all the amenities that a family needs. The walks are interesting. . Most of all it is wonderful place to shut off and just enjoy relax in a bach.

Great spot! Great afternoon sun - we have spent a lot of time in the sounds over the years and its a must to have the afternoon sun as many places don't! Highly recommend!

Beautiful, tranquil, picturesque....a stunning location and so close to Picton. A real Kiwi bach experience, right on the beach with the bush all around. The bach is warm and cosy with the log burner and all afternoon sun. Sitting on the deck in the afternoon, you'd almost think it was summer again! Highly recommended, will definitely be going back. Thank you!
