About this Holiday House

Hebe House is a quaint three-bedroom holiday house at Manaroa, Clova Bay, deep in the middle of the Pelorus Sound. It’s the ideal getaway home for six, only 30 metres from the water and with breathtaking sea and mountain views. If you want to go fishing, swimming, walking or simply rest in paradise, this is 'your' spot. If you enjoy nature, peace and a quiet setting, this is also ‘your’ spot.? The property is fully self-contained, comfy and has a 1960’s holiday vibe; the beds are fresh and fully made up. It’s open plan, roomy and clean with a native back yard and stunning views. Private Internet (restricted, not ideal for streaming movies, etc.) and digital TV are offered. Phone reception is outside or on the beach, depending on the cell device. A registered boat mooring is available upon request, and a boat launching jetty is located just 250 metres down the road. Shore fishing is pretty good, but fishing from kayaks or boats is even better! Signature catches include snapper, gurnard, blue cod and other species. (Excellent bait fishing for children on the jetty.) Clova Bay is a 25- to 40-minute boat excursion up and into the outer Pelorus Reach, as well as to the coast and Cook Strait, where scuba diving is rewarding. You will also have access to hapuka beds. So, if all the above appeals to you, this place of amazing natural beauty is where you wish to go. The location is regarded isolated due to its tiny population, yet it might be called semi-remote during the summer months. Please note: No dogs due to weka, bird life and shorebirds. No extra people or tents. Outdoor fish cleaning bench. There is no refuse collection in the Sounds: a composter is supplied for food scraps; your host will remove regular household rubbish but all bottles and cans must be taken with you – a fee will apply if left. Vehicle travel time from Havelock is 2.0 windy hours, while from Blenheim it is 2.5 hours. There are no shops. The Portage Hotel is an excellent mid-way stopover. Coffee, bar food, and restaurant. Boat and water taxi travel from Havelock takes 50-70 minutes. Due to distance from amenities, your host, Marion, will be available (next door) for any enquiries, help and emergencies.

We had an awesome few days here. The accommodation was clean, fully-furnished, and had a great mooring with good jetty access. Beautiful fishing spots right on the doorstep. We'd definitely come here again!
The house was beautifully clean and tidy when we arrived. It was bad weather and Steve helped out with the boat and mooring - so wonderfully helpful. It was a pleasure to stay in a house so well set up with great facilities , location, and outdoor areas. Thanks 😀

Awesome Bach. We loved it! Everything we needed was there. A wonderful peaceful, quiet and gorgeous piece of paradise. We managed to catch plenty of fish for dinner too. Thank you to the owners for sharing your lovely house. Kindest regards, Kim and Mike.
