Yes Outside Only
Pet Friendly Inside Welcome
Perched on a hill with breathtaking views towards Waitohi and the harbour, this two-bedroom Picton accommodation is spacious and simply bursting with character. Welcome to The Cube!
From the vertical cedar planking on the exterior facade that blends in with the surrounding native flora, to the thoughtfully selected luxury furnishings, this is the kind of holiday home you dream of for a tranquil couples retreat.
An abundance of windows in the spacious open-plan living, kitchen, and dining area are set to add light from every angle and to make the most of the valley views and glimpses of the harbour.
Positioned to catch the sun, you’ll enjoy all-day warmth here thanks to passive heating, making it all the more inviting to prepare delicious meals in your well-equipped kitchen, then cosy up on the couch for good conversation over a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.
Two outdoor living spaces invite you to breathe in the fresh coastal air and relax to the sound of native birdsong. Lower the ladder in the living room and climb your way to breathtaking harbour views, or retreat to the ground floor courtyard where native trees provide peace and privacy.
Two generously sized bedrooms and a large bathroom comfortably accommodate up to four guests at The Cube. The master enjoys access to the landscaped courtyard through large sliding glass doors; the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee.
The Cube is just 5 minutes drive, or a 20-minute walk, from the Picton waterfront and marina, where you’ll find a wide range of shops, eateries, and conveniences.
While you’re in this small yet bustling village, visit the local i-Site for expert advice on ways to make the most of your stay in New Zealand’s sunniest region, from stretching the legs on one of the many walking tracks, to taking a gourmet food and wine cruise through the stunning Marlborough Sounds.

RachelStayed April 2021
Review based on Mother and Daughter stay. This place has the potential to be a great place to stay but sadly we were left lacking - a lot of the basics provided in other holiday homes were not provided in this one. For instance, no heater or additional blankets for cold nights or days (we had a day without sun and the place was cold - we went and brought our own heater, by comparison on sunny days its almost too hot in side), no basic condiments such as oil, baking paper, glad wrap etc, no TV (not everyone would want to watch TV but its an expected item and on cold miserable days a nice option to have). One of the biggest things to point out is that there are no curtains on any of the bedrooms (except one on the sliding door in the main room) and paths going right past the windows (one private-ish but one next to a public walkway). When you are in bed (or getting dressed in the morning) its very exposed. Mum and I actually found it quite unnerving trying to sleep. Additionally the bathroom is also very exposed (one wall at the end of the shower is full windows) and you can be seen by anyone sitting in the outdoor space or if you stand in a different spot the neighbour above or below. Property is not suitable for anyone with mobility issues due to internal stairs but also the steps to get up to the property. Those with small children would also need to take care. The birdsong is amazing and the birds are cheeky enough to come up to the windows or open space if you have the slider back and the area is really quiet. Unfortunately for us, the negatives outweigh the positives. However with some small changes this property could be a gem.
Thank you for your feedback Rachel. We have passed along your suggestions to the owner who will look at making some improvements. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the local birds and hope that your time in Picton was enjoyable.

Cool modern house. Disappointing that the soft furnishings in the photos are different/missing. There‚Äôs no heating so very warm on a sunny day but cold on a grey day.
Thank you for your review, Andrew! We appreciate your feedback about the soft furnishings and will address this for future bookings. We will also look into adding more heating options to ensure the property can be kept warm during the colder months.

This is such a cool place to stay, with an excellent property manager. Under 5 minute drive to the town center, so you feel very central, but there is a lovely vista of hills and the town from the cube. There are some windows that do not have curtains/blinds, including the shower room. Definitely recommend staying here!
