This is a fantastic property to stay at, especially for our two families with children who enjoyed having their own space in the downstairs area. Lovely to sit on the deck and look at the view. The kids loved seeing the glowworms up the creek at the back of the property. So handy to be able to take our dog with us as well. We would definitely stay at this property again.

Overall the property was what we were expecting and it suited our large group, the house had everything we needed to feel at home the only down fall was the driveway, there's no room for parking a vehicle towing a trailer and had to back d

Awesome views from the balcony up the Sound, upstairs is a real sun trap :) Tui & Wood Pigeon are abundant around the house which is tucked down a shared driveway. Everything you need is provided. Great beds and a large kitchen make for a great stay

Great property for large or duel families. Very tidy and great amenities. If you have a boat, maybe check it access has been cleared enough so you can park up at the home without damaging it on the over grown trees and shrubs ( otherwise, be happy and prepared to park down the road) Overall though, a great place to stay!

This 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom holiday house with a large living area and in a bush-setting was a great option for our group of 7 who were looking for a place to kick-back and relax after we'd finished walking the Queen Charlotte walkway. Initially there was a hitch getting in. The key was not where we were told it would be - a lockbox would fix this easily. Another easy fix would be to replace all the blown light-bulbs in the house. There is intermittent internet connection - better for those in our group on Vodafone. The Spark users in our group walked up to the mailbox or down to the beach. We saw it as a chance to disconnect from our everyday lives and enjoy the scenery. The only hitch was when we wanted to contact the local manager to find out where the key was and couldn't get through to her mobile. The house has a bathroom and two bedrooms upstairs (2x kingsize beds, 1x single bed) and a bathroom and two bedrooms downstairs (1x kingsize bed, 1x double & a set of bunks - a bit crammed in but it works ok). Upstairs has a good feel to it. The decor is dated but the spectacular views through the bush to the sea more than makes up for it and the deck is a good size for plenty of people to lounge around and enjoy the view over a morning coffee or end of day wine. Both kitchens are well-equipped. We took up the option of having the linen (well worth it) and made good use of the washing machine and clothes line on the deck. It's a short walk from the end of the Queen Charlotte track to Serene Sounds (well-named), a 5 minute walk to the beach, a 25 minute drive on a winding road to Picton and about the same to Havelock. The Queen Charlotte tavern (just near the turnoff to Havelock) has great coffee and home-baking too. We'd definitely return to Serene Sounds.

Serene Sounds is a fabulous place to stay, especially for the whole extended family, lots of space to gather or find some alone time! the glow worms at the back of the property in the creek were amazing! Our perfect holiday spot!

FrancesStayed December 2018
This Bach is great for large extended family holidays with plenty of space and activities to keep everyone happy. A short walk to the water and beautiful view of the bay. We will definitely be back to stay!
