Serenity in the Marlborough Sounds
Situated in Endeavour Inlet, Queen Charlotte Sound, Tawa Cove is your slice of paradise away from it all.
Accessible only by boat or walking/biking via the Queen Charlotte Track. We are approx. 4.5 hours from the start of the track, Ship Cove, making us the ideal first night stay.
With no close neighbours, we offer the perfect place for relaxing & soaking up the serenity, having a drink by the waterside, or you may like to be more active & enjoy hiking, swimming, fishing, kayaking, or paddle boarding. All of which are available for your use.
Whether it be an overnight stay while walking the track, a weekend getaway arriving by boat, or a group fishing trip for a week, we aim to make your time here happy & memorable.
Prue & Don
Tucked away in the native bush hillside, our three self-contained solid timber cabins are steps away from our private waterfront & jetty.
The cabins are located in close proximity to our waterfront home so whilst you have your privacy of a self-contained cabin, we are always available as your hosts for anything you may require. Equally, if you would rather "do your own thing" we won't bother you either ;)
Tawa Cove Cabins is the perfect choice when looking for Marlborough Sounds Accommodation with a difference.
