Lochmara Bay House Rental Photos and Description

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

Board the water taxi from Picton and head across Queen Charlotte Sound to Lochmara Bay arriving 10 minutes later at your own jetty or bring your own boat and moor it on the private mooring. A short walk up the path will lead you to this newly finished waterfront home, sheltered in native bush with spectacular views across the bay.

This single level sun-filled home offers modern living with open plan kitchen, dining and living areas, opening onto terraces on all sides of the house, providing a setting of secluded comfort for any occasion.

Whether it be outdoor dining in midsummer or nestling around the fire playing cards and board games in winter, nature is drawn into this long glassy home. Every room captures views of the bay whilst also being connected with the hill side.

Enjoy breakfast on the north-facing terrace overlooking the calm bay as the morning sun rises. In the heat of the day, you can watch boats, yachts come and go, other water activities come to life, swimming on the beach, or diving from the jetty.

Sheltering from the sun on the rear terrace, you light the barbecue in preparation for the day?s catch off the jetty below.

As the evening draws in, a gentle row in the dinghy to the middle of the bay, the moonlight reflects in the water. It is time to retire to the fire side, and talk of tomorrow?s adventures - snorkelling around the craggy shoreline, or a walk to the bay?s end to link up with the Queen Charlotte Track.

This holiday home is perfect for tranquil relaxation, a romantic get-away or an activity-filled family escape.

Special conditions:

Access: Boat access only, floating jetty and exclusive mooring for your boat.

Food: Bring your groceries from Picton. There is plenty of fridge and freezer space.

The bach is well located in Lochmara Bay and is just a short walk to the Lochmara Lodge, where you can enjoy a drink or meal. It has its own floating jetty which makes it easy to load and unload the boat. It is a bit of a climb up the path to the bach, which might prove difficult for some. Once there though, you are rewarded with a grand vista of the Bay.

The bach was clean and well equipped. The only (small) complaint was that all of the firewood had been depleted.
