    “What an amazing spot!”

    The pictures in the listing do not do justice to the views and tranquil surroundings of this Bach - waking up to the view from the master bedroom is a highlight and we spent every evening sitting out on the deck soaking in the atmosphere! Amazingly clean, comfy beds and everything you need is supplied with easy instructions to follow so you don't get stuck.

    The pictures in the listing do not do justice to the views and tranquil surroundings of this Bach - waking up to the view from the master bedroom is a highlight and we spent every evening sitting out on the deck soaking in the atmosphere! Amazingly clean, comfy beds and everything you need is supplied with easy instructions to follow so you don't get stuck. Worth noting that you must boil the drinking water (bring bottled water if preferred) and would recommend some insect repellent for the evenings spent enjoying the deck, while cooking the BBQ or heading down to the water which is just a 20 second walk down the pathway. The house is also well set up for when the weather isn't so flash outside, including games, Alexa, digital TV and a nostalgic DVD collection. We spent a week here and it was the perfect base for a memorable family holiday.

The property

For outstanding views of the Marlborough Sounds and beach access, you can't look past Mahakipawa Hideaway. Perched perfectly to look out on the beautiful Mahakipawa Arm of the Malborough Sounds, you will be able to feel the stress melt away from the minute you arrive. Put your feet up and take in every inch of the million dollar view over a cup of morning coffee or a glass wine at the end of the day. In the summer your holiday living is as easy as taking a wander down to the beach directly from the deck or firing up the BBQ. In the cooler months watch the sunset over the mountains and then snuggle up in front of the fireplace with a movie. This 2 bedroom home is ideally located to discover the excellent fishing of the Pelorus Sounds, launch your boat from the community ramp in the bay, or from the commercial ramp at Havelock Marina, where you can also join one of the many cruises. The cafes, bars, restaurants and small-town charm of historic Havelock are only a short 10 minutes drive away. The start of the Queen Charlotte Track at Anakiwa is only 9 minutes drive, and the famous Marlborough vineyards are just 25 minutes away. Mahakipawa Hideaway awaits!

Please note that the pullout bed is really only suitable for children and in the conservatory, not a bedroom.

As the property has unfenced access to the beach, adults should closely supervise young children while outside to ensure they are safe around water.

The property is partially fenced.

There are 2 kayaks available, with lifejackets (1x child and 2x adult)
There is a steep driveway to access off-street parking at this property.

Cell phone reception may be limited.

It is highly recommended to bring your own drinking water. Tap water in the property is advised to be boiled before drinking for safety.

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.

About the location

Dubbed the greenshell mussel capital of the world, Havelock is located in the heart of the Marlborough Sounds. From here you can take a charter boat through the Mahau and Perlous Sounds (keep an eye out for dolphins along the way). All of our Havelock holiday homes are pre-inspected prior to your arrival and are ready for instant online booking.
