Boat Only Access Holiday Lodge

The Lodge at Te Rawa is a peaceful waterfront property with self-contained apartments and an exclusive bungalow situated on the very edge of the water in the Marlborough Sounds. The four beautiful self-contained, one and two bedroom apartments have their own kitchenette, bathroom and sitting/dining areas, and all the apartments have outstanding sea views and private decks from which to watch the sunset. The beds are all high quality, comfortable, hotel standard beds, with hotel quality linen. A combination of the silence of the area and the comfort of the beds, ensures a stress-free peaceful night's sleep.

For guests traveling with friends or family, the sitting rooms in two of the apartments (Tui and Bellbird) have bench type beds, and/or roll-away beds. These allow for 2 additional guests in each of these apartments.

Kereru Cottage is our new luxury offering. It stands on its own private part of the property, with undisturbed views over the ocean. It featues a large private deck and glass balustrade. The Lodge at Te Rawa offers guests the option to self-cater, or dine in our relaxed bar/restaurant. We also have a coffee shop with a full espresso machine for the added luxury of fresh coffee in the mornings. Accessible only by boat, the lodge is completely off the grid and a haven of peace. Our nearest neighbours live on a farm about 10 minutes' walk away and the farm has been in their family for six generations. We can help arrange farm tours for those interested in seeing the original homestead and the daily life of a large working sheep farm. Situated in the middle of the Pelorus sounds this is the perfect location for fishing, boating, walking, or just relaxing on the deck or the wharf with a glass of your favourite sundowner. We also have an extensive library of books which guests are free to borrow or buy. The Pelorus Sounds Mailboat stops here and a one-way trip from Havelock to Te Rawa is $50. It is a good idea to check their schedule as their timetable changes depending on the season. If you prefer a private trip that can be arranged through one of the three Pelorus Sounds Water Taxi companies Transport can also be arranged from Picton or Blenheim airports. Please note, some of the units are not suitable for those with mobility challenges due to the steps up to the accommodation.
