Peaceful with stunning viewsWe had a wonderful week at Celia and Ian’s holiday house in the most beautiful, peaceful town location on Queen Charlotte Sound. Perfectly positioned for stunning views of the bay and mountains to the east - sunrise behind the sailing boats in the harbour was incredible! We walked 10 minutes from the house to the famous Queen Charlotte Track and found plenty of other walks within a short drive. The town of Anakiwa doesn’t have shops but it is less than a half hour drive to either Picton or very cute Havelock, which have grocery shops, pubs, cafe’s, restaurants and tourist sites. The Marlborough Sounds has so much gorgeous untouched wilderness, a lot only accessible by boat, but we saw several day cruise boats pick up from the wharf in Anakiwa. Though we didn’t get onto the water, we drove along some fun winding roads beside the water to beautiful bays. The house was very comfortable and had absolutely everything we could want, we spent a lot of time out on the huge deck. We highly recommend Celia and Ian’s holiday house to anyone looking for peace and quiet surrounded by the beauty of nature.
