The Crib is a classically cool Kiwi bach just 20m from the water's edge of Waikawa Bay.

This 3 bedroom property is pet-friendly so the whole family can enjoy a holiday together - furry members included!

The Crib is ideal for summer holidays and especially water lovers, with two kayaks (1x child and 1x adult) available to take paddling and beach access and launching site just seconds away. The slightly sloping long driveway provides ample room for parking boats and equipment, while still leaving space for the backyard cricket pitch!

Wander down to the beach for a morning swim before heading home for a BBQ meal on the deck. Kiwi summer bliss!

In cooler months, keep warm with the heat pump, insulation and electric blankets, and curl up for movie night in front of the 50" Smart TV with home entertainment system.

Magical holiday memories await at The Crib!

Lovely property in such a great location, only seconds to walk to the beach. Kids loved the kayaks, and eating out on the deck. Clean and tidy, great shower. Will definitely stay again .

Stayed December 2021

Brilliant location but way over priced for the type of accommodation.. For that money would expect more- extra pillows, curtains in the front bedroom (being Xmas time trying to sleep with the neighbours flashing Xmas lights was interesting!), wifi. Having said that kids had a great time at the beach at the end of the driveway and great for boat access. Well stocked with essentials. TV didn’t work despite calls to manager for help. Beds were comfy. Would love to book again for Xmas that year but too much money!

Classic Kiwi bach that did not disappoint with an equally awesome location. Great to be able to take the doggo and have him fully contained and safe outside. Thank you!!

A REAL KIWI BACK WITH MODERN FACILITIES!! A couple of minutes to the Waikawa beach, jetty and boat ramp. This Kiiwi style bach is an ideal place to stay in the Marlborough Sounds as it is close to everything, marina, beach, jetty, cafe and bar, shops in Picton. This little gem of a bach with modern facilities, which we really enjoyed thank you! We loved the little touches too like the bathroom oar rail and outdoor water spray makes this bach wonderfully unique! Big fully enclosed outdoor grass area for children and dogs and your car parked right up next to the bach for easy convienence. Would definitely stay again!

Needs something done with the shower as it’s pathetic, a comment had been made and they said they would look into it , well nothing has been done , wouldn’t recommend on that alone , disappointed

Thanks for your feedback Sue -The Crib is a classic kiwi bach with a low pressure hot water system. We've added this to the listing so it's clear and while we can't control this aspect we hope the location and views add to the overall experience at this good old kiwi bach.

Great bach- excellent views and proximity to the lovely Waikawa Bay. Kitchen is fantastic and place very clean

This is a standard New Zealand bach. The bed was very comfortable and the views were lovely. The water pressure was not good for showering - although this may be true of the whole area. It was a good stay for a couple of days.

Hi Sharon, we're glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for leaving your feedback. We have not had prior issues with the water pressure but will keep an eye on this to determine if it needs further assessment.
