THE BACH

For the complete Marlborough holiday guests of Straw Lodge now have the option of complementing their visit with a stay in their hosts' beautiful Marlborough Sounds bach. Situated in pristine Tennyson Inlet this modern holiday home will provide guests with an ideal base to explore one of the most unspoilt and spectacular areas of New Zealand.

With a grand view over the bay the bach has extensive outdoor decks and is fully equipped for a carefree and comfortable Sounds experience. It has • a modern kitchen • three private double bedrooms with linen supplied • two bathrooms • an open fire • BBQ courtyard • laundry facilities and • drive on access.

The cupboards are stocked with basic food requirements. All that guests need to bring is their fresh food and drink requirements, plus an attitude to enjoy a remote and special place.

Close by are some of the most wonderful sparsely populated walking tracks including the Nydia Track. The bay provides safe and spectacular swimming and boating options. Guests have the use of a two-person kayak, a small sailing dingy and a row boat in which to explore or maybe try their luck at a spot of fishing . There is also the possibility of commercial boat trips to the outer Sounds areas. The area also provides some very scenic driving experiences such as the trip out to remote French Pass . Guest will have the exclusive use of the bach during their stay. The bach will be serviced before and after visits. There is a minimum requirement of a three night booking with rates depending on numbers and time of year. These will be comparable to a double booking at Straw Lodge.
