5/5 Excellent

Charming clean and all your need
Loved staying thank you Brian. Very cute n cosy. Lovely view. Bags carried up for us even, thanks! Clean and everything we needed for a very enjoyable stopover while walking the track.

4/5 Good

Quirky paradise
An unusual layout in the batch with the kids sharing the shower/fridge and bunks but otherwise well supplied with everything you need, great access with moaring and wharf, easy access to Furneaux and Queen charlotte track.

5/5 Excellent

Peaceful stay
We absolutely loved our time here in this quiet bach with its own jetty. It's the perfect place to sit on the balcony and soak up the calm of forest. Thank you Brian for all the helpful information. We hope to be back to the Sounds very soon!

5/5 Excellent

Peaceful and tranquil
Everything we needed. Typical kiwiana Bach, well maintained and a lovely setting. Comfortable bed. Great to have the morring

5/5 Excellent

Awesome family getaway
Brian’s house was an excellent place for our family to relax for a week during the school holidays. We took ourselves and everything we needed in our boat from Picton to Endeavour Inlet and Brian and his family provided a mooring, local knowledge and of course the cute little house. We spent our time fishing, relaxing, kayaking, exploring, swimming, hiking etc and it was a real treat to have Ferneaux Lodge nearby for extra meals and great coffee. Highly recommended 10/10
