눉Nothing we can think of.
눇We stayed over New Year's Eve in Okiwa Bay Lodge, and quite simply, it was the highlight of our 3-week trip (that was full of great moments). The house is situated on a mountain slope at the head of Queen Charlotte's Sound. The view over the sound is just breathtaking. One can spend hours on spacious deck just looking at the play of light and shadow on the blue waters and green mountains of the sound. The house is situated in beautiful garden, so that oen was up with the birds. (An occasional curious Pecker might join you n the deck.) The house is large, very comfortable, and tastefully decorated. It is available to the guests as if it is their own. There is a hot tub with a view of the sound. Susie's cooking is delicious, so much so that we never ate out; but they are also very generous hosts, every evening the guests that stayed for dinner had wine with, and drinks and snacks before, dinner. As always, it is the spirit of the hosts that decides the quality of the venue. Susie and Martin are generous, outgoing, and very helpful. They made us feel that we were staying with good friends. They clearly enjoy engaging with their guests. When the weather on one of the days of our stay was rainy, Martin drove us around for a wine tour in nearby Marlborough County. If it was possible to give 6 stars to Okiwa Bay Lodge we would do it.

눇Fabulous stay! Thanks for the memorable New Year's Evening and for bringing in 2016 in such a nice way. If you are in the Marlborough area you need to stay here for at least one night! It may turn into more nights when you see the place and experience Susie and Martin's hospitality. A little piece of heaven tucked away on the hillside on the north of the South Island. You've got to stay here!
