Stayed May 2022

A great getaway, views to die for, we loved it and the Queen Charolette hotel had great meals and coffee,

Stayed March 2022

Awesome paradise. So quiet, peaceful and truly beautiful. The birdsong was amazing. Fished off the beach with some success and even caught a good sized snapper. Intermittent Spark coverage from the deck and beach but having an electronic-free stay was so nice for a change. Relaxing old-school. Happily recommend this magical place.

Perfect spot for our kayaking adventure. Thanks.

Stayed January 2021

Absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful bach. We enjoyed a week of sunshine and swimming. A very secluded beach, warm water, and right on the doorstep of a great bach. Highly to recommend to anyone thinking of staying here.

Stayed November 2020

This is a great kiwi batch. The view is amazing. Sitting on the deck listening to the birds and the waves is magic. Did not want to leave and will definitely come back

Stayed October 2020

Nice place to stay in the Sounds, a little dated, but fine for our purposes.

A real Kiwi Bach to escape to. Loved our time there and would definitely stay again. Best location.

Stayed March 2020

A real kiwi Bach in a beautiful place. Tuis and bellbirds calling all day long. The Bach needs some general maintenance.

A true kiwi bach experience in an outstanding location with the added extra of being secluded but still only 45 min from Picton or 30min to Blenhiem.

Stayed October 2019

Amazing place to stay with the beach at your doorstep. The bird song is amazing.

Stayed May 2019

Superb location, so close to the water with beautiful views! Very warm home away from home. We will be back

Stayed February 2019

Sounds Magic is a real and original Sounds bach with a view to die for. The sea was clear and warm and the beach was clean and beautiful and the morning birdsong was wonderful. A family of quail and wekas were in the garden and wood pigeons, tuis and bellbirds in abundance. A huge fabulous umbrella and BBQ meant we lived on the deck. The kitchen had everything we needed and the bed in the main bedroom was super comfortable.

Stayed January 2019

Fabulous location for a true NZ back experience.

Stayed November 2018

Not impressed with this bach, no working shower, no gas bottle for BBQ, very outdated, the property needs an upgrade. The only positive is that the spot and view is beautiful.

Bachcare replied

We're so glad you loved the location and we agree about the view. Thank you for your feedback about the amenities and we are happy to report the shower is now working.
