    Our place is situated on the waters edge of the Kenepuru Sound in the stunning Marlborough Sounds which is at the top end of the South Island. We provide accommodation for 26 people in a collection of cottages. Our activities include kayaking, swimming, hiking, mountain biking, SUP boards, and fishing. We require people to help us with looking after the place, cleaning, gardening and helping guests. We will provide you with twin room or double room accommodation, you do your own cooking in the wonderful modern guest kitchen and we invite you to have meals with us when we have time. Some basic groceries are provided such as flour, eggs, sugar, tea, coffee, rice, oil, bread, herbs and spices. You can also use of all our guest facilities - wifi, laundry, kayaks, fishing gear and boats, bikes, spa etc.
    We have been rated the best backpackers in NZ for the last seventeen years and it is a very friendly and relaxed place to be. You will love our guests from all over the world including many New Zealanders and we get all ages, including families staying here. We can teach you about our amazing natural environment and how to enjoy it. We love to cook and are happy to share all our recipes. Join in with our regular mussel cook ups and I will make bread for you.
    Our place is quite remote, you can drive here, otherwise we can pick you up by boat from Picton or Havelock. We prefer that you can stay for at least two weeks or longer, you could even stay for the whole of summer!
    We would love to hear from you!

    The Marlborough Sounds is one of the most beautiful areas in New Zealand. Staying with us will give you the opportunity to learn how to kayak and fish. There are some amazing hikes around here too. You can learn about New Zealand flora and fauna, we have large gardens and are surrounded by native bush and forest.
    There is plenty of wild shellfish growing on our beaches, so if you like oysters, mussels and cockles you will be spoilt and we can help you with recipes. We are happy to help you with your English if necessary and perhaps you can help us with French or Spanish or Finnish!
