Fodor's Expert Review Whatamonga Homestay

425 Port Underwood Rd., Waikawa Bay, Picton, Marlborough, 7220, New Zealand

From the seaview lounge and private balconies you can watch the ferries pass and hear fish splash. A private jetty, kayaks, a dinghy, and golf clubs are available to guests. Whatamonga is a sheltered bay 10-minute drive from Picton, but you'll feel like you're much farther out of town. A water taxi can pick you up from the jetty for a Sounds cruise or to take you to the Queen Charlotte Track. Kids are welcome by prior arrangement.
