The property

Do you dream of a place where you can disconnect from the fast pace of your everyday life and reconnect with yourself? Just steps from the stunning waters of the Mahakipawa Arm of Pelorus Sound might just be where you find it. Welcome to Pukenui Paradise. With views of the sea and an exquisite garden, Pukenui Paradise is a charming, two-storey, three-bedroom holiday home, furnished with your comfort in mind. The bedrooms are configured perfectly to accommodate both family and friends, and are the ideal spot to retreat to at the end of a day enjoying this truly spectacular part of New Zealand. A tidy bathroom upstairs caters for everyone, and the additional toilet in the laundry downstairs provides that extra bit of convenience. A cosy, yet spacious, living room invites you to while away the hours gazing out toward the water, taking a glance down at your book every now and again. Stay toasty warm by the wood burning fire on those mid-year getaways, and come summer time, open up the sliding glass doors and let the coastal breeze flow through to cool things down. Prepare delicious meals in the well-equipped kitchen and dine together at the table. Or better yet, fire up the BBQ and grill your fresh catch, ready to enjoy alfresco with a glass of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc almost as world class as the view. The beautiful garden here at Pukenui Paradise offers you your own little slice of nature to enjoy, and then there’s your big adventure playground waiting for you out on the water. Bring your boat (up to 6m) and make use of the mooring - just tie it up and leave it, ready for your next leisure cruise or fishing trip. Pukenui Paradise is located 10 minutes drive from the town of Havelock, where you’ll find a small Four Square supermarket, as well as cafes and restaurants. You simply must check out Mills Bay Mussels for some of the freshest shellfish you’ll ever taste! For a bit of adventure on foot, check out Cullen Point just five minutes down the road, where you’ll find a lovely walking track and more spectacular views. It’s all in the name of this absolute gem of a holiday home - this is Pukenui Paradise!

All guests should take care when using the internal stairs, as although they have a handrail on one side, they do not have a barrier to prevent falls.

As the property has unfenced access to water, adults should closely supervise young children while outside.

Boat owners will need to bring their own tender to transfer to and from their vessel once it is anchored to the mooring.

Water is supplied to the house via rainwater tanks. Guests are encouraged to save water over the summer months.

Only the provided products are to be used for cleaning due to the wastewater system.

Guests should be advised that mobile coverage may be limited.

Please note, house has been painted and is now grey (prev. red)

Please note a bond may be charged at certain times of the year. One of our team members will contact you if this is required for your booking.
