About the property

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

Board the water taxi from Picton and head across Queen Charlotte Sound to Lochmara Bay arriving 10 minutes later at your own jetty or bring your own boat and moor it on the private mooring. A short walk up the path will lead you to this newly finished waterfront home, sheltered in native bush with spectacular views across the bay.

This single level sun-filled home offers modern living with open plan kitchen, dining and living areas, opening onto terraces on all sides of the house, providing a setting of secluded comfort for any occasion.

Whether it be outdoor dining in midsummer or nestling around the fire playing cards and board games in winter, nature is drawn into this long glassy home. Every room captures views of the bay whilst also being connected with the hill side.

Enjoy breakfast on the north-facing terrace overlooking the calm bay as the morning sun rises. In the heat of the day, you can watch boats, yachts come and go, other water activities come to life, swimming on the beach, or diving from the jetty.

Sheltering from the sun on the rear terrace, you light the barbecue in preparation for the day?s catch off the jetty below.

As the evening draws in, a gentle row in the dinghy to the middle of the bay, the moonlight reflects in the water. It is time to retire to the fire side, and talk of tomorrow?s adventures - snorkelling around the craggy shoreline, or a walk to the bay?s end to link up with the Queen Charlotte Track.

This holiday home is perfect for tranquil relaxation, a romantic get-away or an activity-filled family escape.

Special conditions:

Access: Boat access only, floating jetty and exclusive mooring for your boat.

Food: Bring your groceries from Picton. There is plenty of fridge and freezer space.

Fantastic house that had all we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house that had all we needed. In particular, it was great to have linen provided. The house is a great size, with beautiful views. We enjoyed fishing off the jetty, hiring the kayaks at Lochmara lodge next door, swimming and relaxing. On the one rainy day we had, there was plenty of DVDs to watch and games to play. It was an exciting and fun 10 - 15 minute water taxi ride to get there, which was very easy to organise. Would highly recommend and love to go back to again!

Great location, only a few minutes walk to Lochmara Cafe, amazing views across the bay. Weather during our stay was great, windy one particular day.

The trek up the hill with all our gear is not something to look forward too, however as the kids are getting older it's getting easier :)

The property is only accessed by boat, there is a short but steep hill up to the bach, this maybe difficult for elderly visitors. We walked down to the jetty within 2-3 minutes, and could also walk through to Lochmara Lodge for activities and the cafe/restaurant. The property is very spacious with a great view, lots of sunlight, spacious. We would definitely return.

The bach is well located in Lochmara Bay and is just a short walk to the Lochmara Lodge, where you can enjoy a drink or meal. It has its own floating jetty which makes it easy to load and unload the boat. It is a bit of a climb up the path to the bach, which might prove difficult for some. Once there though, you are rewarded with a grand vista of the Bay.

The bach was clean and well equipped. The only (small) complaint was that all of the firewood had been depleted.
