We live in Mahau Sound, Marlborough. We are about forty five minutes from Blenheim. Most of the properties on our road are used as holiday homes. There are no shops. We are starting own vegetable garden. We can not guarantee bell birds, tuis, thrush,blackbird song in the morning but you will not be disappointed. Sometimes we have Dolphins playing in our bay, and sometimes when we are in the yacht Dolphins come to bow ride....no guarantees though. If you want to relax and enjoy the scenery then come to visit us.
We collect rain water for all our use so sensible water use is important.
You take all your rubbish with you.
We are on a septic tank so what goes down the loo must be biodegradable.
We are a drug free, gun free site, and no smoking on the property.
Any dogs must be well behaved and any dog crap cleaned up and removed.
No running generators after 10pm, perhaps earlier.
Mahau Road is gravel, and suitable for Class B vehicles. There are a couple places where the ferns and trees are hanging over the road but they should not create major problems. The road is just over single lane width. Please do not speed.
We don't mind well behaved dogs, but NO cats. They kill the birds.
Please send us a message before you arrive to check we are here. We are still travelling in our winter by airplane rather than yacht though.
We rely on rainwater/tanks so depending on the level of our tanks is whether we can fill up your tanks. It shouldn't be a problem but just in case.
Marlborough is renown for its Vineyards......if you are into walks/hikes there is the Queen Charlotte Track. Around our home there are a couple of walks I do, nothing to strenuous, but enjoyable. We have kayaks you can use
We would be happy to take you out on our yacht, perhaps we can spend time on anchor, enjoying the peace and beauty, but there will be a cost ($) involved. We have fishing lines, dinghy.
