Where you’ll be

Waikawa, Marlborough, New Zealand

The house is located in Waikawa, three kilometers from Picton, the centre of the Marlborough Sounds. Nearby is the city of Blenheim, the centre of world-renowned vineyards and gourmet dining.

Beautiful in every direction, Marlborough Sounds is a collection of forested hills, river valleys, sheltered inlets and sandy bays full of native wildlife.

Waikawa situated in the Queen Charlotte Sound, one of the three main bodies of water in Marlborough Sounds. Tide swimming can be found along the sandy inlets and spectacular walking trails can be found on the Queen Charlotte Track, regarded as one of the classic New Zealand walkways. Motorboat hire is available in the Queen Charlotte Sound or Picton’s marina nearby.

The picturesque seaside town of Picton is Marlborough Sounds centre town and the base for the ferry service between New Zealand’s main islands. It is blessed with great coffee, cafes and restaurants as well as the Picton Visitor Information Centre for attractions and adventure activities.

Nearby is Blenheim (30mins drive), the centre of the Marlborough wine-growing area, with over 20 wineries to choose from, and a selection of gourmet dining, bars, artisan food outlets and art galleries. Nelson, Kaikoura, and the Nelson Lakes National Park are also nearby.

Queen Charlotte Track: If you want to split your stay so you can walk the track,
eg 1 night before and say a few days afterward contact me about options.

Or just enjoy the ever-changing unobstructed views from your luxury home base, a perfect place for a truly memorable visit to New Zealand’s South Island.
