We live on 3/4 acre of grounds with lawns, orchard and vegetable gardens overlooking Mahau Sound. There is beach launching for boats across the road and all tide swimming along the beach. We have our own walk through Native forest to our water tank or to see the glowworms at night. There are lots of walks within easy access notably the Queen Charlotte walkway. Motor boat hire is available in the bay. Or just enjoy the tranquility, watch the birds and enjoy the always changing views.
Guests are welcome to make use of the grounds, and there is a sit on Kayak available for use in the bay as well as a small row boat.

We are very happy to share our knowledge of the area as well as of New Zealand. But if you wish to have privacy that is OK as well.
There is a motor boat tour available in the bay and a garage 10 minutes away where you can get petrol, ice creams and a few basics. The nearest town is Havelock 25 mins drive away which has cafes, a supermarket, and restaurants as well as a marina, garage, chemist and Marine shop. 20 mins further up the Sound there is a cafe at a resort 40 mins another resort with a restaurant.
We ask for you to treat our property with respect and to enjoy it as much as we do! Sorry we do not allow pets as they would chase away (or kill) the numerous native birds who make their home here.
We have a minimum of 1 night for bookings but over a weekend ask that guests take a minimum of 2 nights as otherwise we lose bookings on the other nights.
