Located a short distance from the Waikawa Marina in the beautiful Queen Charlotte Sound, the Buccaneer Lodge offers spacious, modern, en-suite rooms with a balcony that makes the most of the outlook. So after More an adventurous day walking the Queen Charlotte Track or maybe kayaking in the sounds, sit and enjoy a cold glass of local Sauvignon Blanc while taking in the peaceful marina and sea views. The Buccaneer Lodge is owner operated and is a warm, friendly, comfortable home away from home. Located close to local walks, restaurant, cafe, bar and safe swimming beach in beautiful Waikawa Bay.
