About this Holiday House

THE BACH This cosy absolute waterfront three bedroom bach with sleepout is surrounded by a very large sunny deck. Enjoy magnificent panoramic views of the beautiful Keneperu sound. The deck is wonderfully sheltered from sea winds and enjoys the maximum sun possible because of its situation in the bay. Outdoor furniture (table and chairs) and two loungers provided. The safe swimming beach is just down from the bach. You can enjoy the sheltered beach with opportunity for shade or sun. At the beach there is a deck for you to sit on if the there is a very high tide. If you have a boat there is a 2 tonne mooring (boat ramp near by) and the property comes with 12 foot aluminium dinghy and two life jackets. You can attach your small outboard motor to this dinghy if you like. The property is accessed by road. There is a flat parking area at the top of the property and a driveway off this. There is a short walk (about 25 metres) down to the bach from the end of the driveway. FACILITIES The living area is open plan with a brand new fully equipped kitchen with oven, convection microwave and dishwasher. The kitchen has a large fridge/freezer (the sleepout has a second fridge/freezer). There is a dining table and a lounge area with comfy sofas and chairs. A barbecue is supplied. There is a free view TV and DVD. There are three bedrooms, two with sea views and queen beds and one with two single beds. All bedrooms are separate and accessed via a hallway rather than from the living area. The sleepout has bunks. There is a cosy log burner for colder weather. The bathroom has a shower, washing machine and dryer and a separate toilet. LOCATION AND ACTIVITIES The location, 6 kms this side of The Portage and 6 kms further on from Te Mahia makes this an ideal place for: swimming fishing (you can fish off the beach and catch huge snapper at times) sailing, kayaking, boating, biking, walking (along the road or the beach) or lying on the beach or deck. The Queen Charlotte track is 5 to 10 minutes away. Enjoy a meal (fine dining or a bar meal) at the Portage Hotel or hire a boat or kayak from them. There is a shop there with basic supplies. A boat from Picton takes 15 minutes to get to Torea Bay where passengers can be picked up or despatched. Torea Bay is 10 minutes drive from the Bach. Horse riding is not far away at the end of Keneperu sound. The Keneperu Sound is arguably the nicest place to boat because of it's sheltered location, quiet water ways and deep waters. OTHER FEATURES Surrounded by native bush. Amazing birdlife (watch the bellbirds and tuis take a bath) See quails (and their chicks in season) Wekas Lighted path to beach for those moonlit walks

Just spent the weekend here. What a fantastic spot. Love coming back here. We caught a massive snapper at night straight off the beach. Will definetely book here again.
Thank you, we have enjoyed our stay , very much. Beautiful views, good beach and easy fishing with the dinghy, very sunny and first class kitchen...
great - what else can we say - beach fantastic - good access for younger children - very relaxing and a fantastic spot - house has every thing one could need as well as plenty of native bird and fauna - fishing from dingy proved great for kids but not so much for dad....... maybe his lack of experience.... would certainly return when we have the chance - thanks robert + sarah
