Boat Only Access Luxury 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 three beautiful self-contained, one-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 and feather pillows. 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 brand new luxury offering. Completed in December 2019, it stands on its own private part of the property, with undisturbed views over the ocean. It featues a large private deck, glass balustrade, and an outdoor spa bath. The Lodge at Te Rawa offers guests the option to self-cater, or dine in our relaxed bar/restaurant. We are happy to offer guests provisions from our shop to make their own breakfasts, or light lunches. 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 every day and a one-way trip from Havelock to Te Rawa is $45. 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. As animal lovers we are pet friendly and we welcome pets in the Tui and Bellbird apartments, but would ask guests to call us first to confirm if your pet can be comfortably housed for the duration of your stay.
