This is a beautiful spot. Our boat was too large though for the very narrow private road that leads to the property, you would only get a single axel trailer safely down to the beach and a boat probably no longer that 5m. I would not recommend renting just the downstairs area without the upstairs as it felt a little damp so was nice to be able to head upstairs. Nice to be able to head down to the resort (walking distance) to grab a great coffee. I think it was one of the nicer bays in the sounds.
Response from Owner
Information is provided advising boats up to 5 metres can be launched from the beach - 4WD advisable. Larger boats can be launched at Broughton's bay (4 km away) or from Havelock

Stunning, this is a fantastic place to stay, peaceful, tranquil - utter peace... take your books, relax and chill out. Only complaint I have is that 7 days was not long enough - Thanks Chris for sharing your place
