The Lodge at Te Rawa is a peaceful waterfront property with self-contained apartments situated on the very edge of the water in the Marlborough Sounds. We have three beautifully renovated self-contained, one-bedroom apartments with their own kitchenette, bathroom and sitting/dining areas. All apartments have outstanding sea views and private decks from which to watch the sunset. The apartment beds are all high quality, comfortable, hotel standard beds, with hotel quality linen and feather pillows. A combination of the silence of the area and the comfort of the beds, ensures a stress-free peaceful night's sleep.
For guests who want to travel with additional friends or family, the sitting rooms in two of the apartments (Tui and Bellbird) have bench type beds, and/or roll-away beds. These allow for 2 additional guests in each of these apartments.
The Lodge at Te Rawa is unique to the area insofar as we offer guests the option to self-cater, or dine in our relaxed bar/restaurant, or have a combination of both. We are happy to offer guests provisions from our shop to make their own breakfasts, or light lunches. We also have a coffee shop with a full espresso machine for the added luxury of fresh coffee in the mornings. For guests in larger groups who prefer ‘glamping' we have a standalone six bunk room with its own kitchenette, toilet and shower. The 'glamp hut' like our other apartments has amazing views of the sea and guests can bring their own food or join us in the restaurant.
Accessible only by boat or sea plane, the lodge is completely off the grid and a haven of peace. Our nearest neighbours live on a farm about 10 minutes’ walk away and the farm has been in their family for eight generations. We can help arrange farm tours for those interested in seeing the original homestead and the daily life of a large working sheep farm.
Situated in the middle of the Pelorus sounds this is the perfect location for fishing, boating, walking, or just relaxing on the deck or the wharf with a glass of your favourite sundowner. We also have an extensive library of books which guests are free to borrow or buy.
The Pelorus Sounds Mailboat stops here every day and a one-way trip from Havelock to Te Rawa is $40. If you prefer a private trip that can be arranged through one of the three Pelorus Sounds Water Taxi companies or the seaplane from Wellington. Transport can also be arranged from Picton or Blenheim airports.
As animal lovers we are also very pet friendly and we welcome most pets, but would ask guests to call us first to confirm if your pet can be comfortably housed for the duration of your stay.
