“A slice of heaven!”
Reviewed February 23, 2007

When I was looking for a place to get married in the Marlborough sounds, I came across this place - and nothing else compared!

The scenery is beautiful, native bush surrounds the complex, and the sound of native birds adds to it.

There are 3 different types of accommodation there, and they're all beautifully decorated. They have everything you need, plus more - right down to fresh flowers on the table. :)

My husband and I have been back a few times since we got married (2003) and it just keeps getting better! The owners - Trevor and Jann, make you feel like family, not guests, from the moment you arrive. They are more than happy to help, if you want to explore the sounds, with the best advice.

As there is no restaurant, you need to bring your own food, but they have a small shop & cafe, with the essentials, including gourmet frozen foods, which are delicous, and as I found out from our last visit last month, they also now have wine & beer. - which was handy for someone like me who ran out! ;)
Plus there are barbeques scattered around as well.

There are kayaks & dingys you can hire to go and explore, plus fishing lines too. My husband caught a fish off the wharf that we had for dinner. :)

The best way to get there is take a water taxi from Picton, it's a 20 min trip.

It's a very hard place to leave as it's so beautiful, peaceful & relaxing and I can't wait to go back!
