Overview

Photos and Description of this Marlborough District holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 2)

If you are looking for somewhere in the Marlborough Sounds where you can enjoy the simple pleasures of peace, natural surroundings, stunning views, and a comfortable nest where you can relax and unwind, Cariad is your kind of place.

With stunning views and a little beach, Cariad offers a secluded hideaway just five kilometres from Picton with easy access to the Sounds, the Queen Charlotte Track, ferries and wineries. The simple, weatherboard bach is over fifty years old, well maintained and very comfortable in all seasons. It has been sensitively brought up to date whilst retaining the traditional Kiwi bach atmosphere reminiscent of those long, lazy holidays of childhood. It has a great ?retro? feel, is fully insulated, has a heat pump, lots of hot water and top quality bed linen.

North facing with all day sun and set amongst native bush, the bach comprises a living/dining room, a kitchen, a bedroom, a bathroom and a balcony with table and chairs. A path meanders down to a little beach, a good spot to sit and read, launch the kayaks for a paddle around the bay or take a dip. There are two bicycles for guest use.

Cariad is a place to wind down and relax. There is no TV but there is a well stocked bookcase, a variety of indoor games and a CD player with i-Pod facility and a selection of music to choose from. There is a phone and broadband email access.

The bach has a file with lots of information about things to do and see in the area, places to eat, shopping and transport or we can provide you with information before you arrive.

Special conditions:

No smoking inside or outside as the bach is set in bush. Single or

couple only. There is no extra bed. Path to beach is well formed and

has a good handrail but it quite steep, so not suitable for anyone not

too steady on their feet. This is definitely not a party venue!

Extras: Linen (included); NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave;

Lovely little shabby chic bach with a stunning and endlessly fascinating view.

Lovely little shabby chic bach with a stunning and endlessly fascinating view. Watched orcas as we sipped on bubbly following a hike and a soak in the hot tub. Comfy bed, well-equipped kitchen, lots of useful local info. Perfect for two!

Absolutely gorgeous location with breathtaking scenery.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely gorgeous location with breathtaking scenery. The owners have thought of everything - beach shoes, bikes, kayaks, speakers... there are even hot water bottles to use (if you're there in the colder months like us). We absolutely adore this bach and will definitely be back in the future.
