“Magic Place”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

Stayed here for wedding with group of friends. Same very friendly owners as were here 15 years ago.Same old David Brown tractor with 3 gear levers to haul your boat or jetski in and out.
Rooms and service were very good . You can stay in older part or if you wish the newer motel units which are excellent quality ,all with magnificent views across water.
Great coffee in cafe.

The purpose of our visit was to attend a wedding at Te Mahia. This was our first trip to the Kenepuru Sounds and we were most impressed with the resort. The views from our balcony on the 2nd floor was absolutely amazing as we enjoyed coffee and watched the fish swimming in the bay below us. We were in the older part of the resort but the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The staff were most helpful and courteous. Nothing was a problem for them. There is no restaurant on site so you need to self cater, although the resort does have a small shop where basic commodities can be purchased. Would go back again without hesitation. .

Room Tip: Try and get a booking in the newer block as they are more modern than the original block.

A spot of luxury in the beautiful setting of Kenupuru Sound. This fabulous resort, comfortable, spotlessly clean, right on the beach, fabulous views, the most helpful hosts and staff. I could go on, but it's perfect, come and see for yourself.

Room Tip: Appartments face the wonderful view.

We had a great stay. Most amazing view of the sound right from the bed! Rooms older style but very comfortable. Had pizzas from the cafe for dinner which were fine. Great spot to stop off along the queen Charlotte track!

We stayed for three nights with family members from the US and could not fault the accommodation, location, amenities, hosts, Jann and Trevor and their staff. We parked the car when we arrived and didn't move it until our journey home. We came prepared to self-cater and found a very well equipped kitchen with the back-up of home-made pizzas delivered to our door. Our apartment gave us access to a deck overlooking the water. We could enjoy a drink at the end of the day, listening to the lapping of the waves. We appreciated the closeness to the Queen Charlotte track and thoroughly enjoyed our tramp to Portage and the water taxi back. The next day we took the James Vogel Track to Mistletoe Bay through the remains of a magical podocarp-hardwood-beech forest. This was our first visit and it won't be our last.

As a family of five we have stayed here numerous times for our summer vacation. We love the waterfront apartment setup which makes you feel like you are right on top of the water. There is always something going on in the bay with boats coming and going. The water sports are numerous with a water ski lane right next door . 90 pct of the time every morning the water is so calm you can ski non stop for miles. With the blue cod fishery now open we do not have to boat to far to get our limit of cod, scallops and Green Lip mussels. . Snapper are reknown in Kenepuru and they are still there if you use a bit of stealth. The shop is well set up with a pizza lunch or a coffee on the deck a must. We love holidaying here with our teenage kids. Trevor and Jann are wonderful hosts

We rented one bedroom apartment that was situated behind the reception in the last building. W could park the car close to the door. The apartment is modern decorated in pastel colors, spacious, with wonderful open kitchen (fully equipped), dining table, sofas, and bedroom separated by the curtain. Te front of the apartment is much higher off the ground and there is a beautiful terrace with round table, chairs and sun chairs. Big bathroom has a shower, washer and dryer, big cabinet and the semi-separated toilet. It's a walk through, one door lead from the entrance and one from the bedroom, very convenient.
When traveling with a child we would prefer solid wall between bedroom and the rest of the place but we understand that the layout would suffer and apartment would lost its spaciousness.
It's a very romantic place like whole area of the Sounds and I can definitely recommend it to couples. By we would not come back with the child since there is not much to do for children. The beach was fine but the water carried a lot of mud and plants and it wasn't pleasant to get in.
Children aside, for boat lovers and these looking for romantic gateway I recommend this place without hesitation, it's great quality accommodation, nice service, beautiful views and Queen Charlotte track to hike.
