Steeped in history stemming back to the 1930s, Raetihi Lodge has been an iconic Marlborough Sounds seaside holiday destination for many generations of New Zealanders and international guests alike.
Extensively refurbished in 2014, this waterfront property enables a new owner to sit back and enjoy the views, beauty and tranquillity this peaceful stretch of coastline offers.
This private waterfront retreat maintains a luxuriously casual feel, with 14 elegantly appointed bedrooms with en-suites for up to 30 guests as well as spacious dining, living and outdoor entertainment areas. The property is being sold fully furnished and also includes three moorings, floating jetty, helipad and two manager's residences with accommodation for up to 16 staff.
Set on nearly 20 hectares of peaceful native bush land, the Lodge is situated to maximize the flat coastal shoreline and sheltered beach, with the peaceful setting accentuated by maturing gardens, extensive lawn area and sweeping vistas of the Kenepuru Sound.
Overlooking tranquil inlets and waterways - this property is the perfect playground for recreational sports and water activities - sailing, kayaking, diving, boating, marine life, cycling, hiking, hunting, photography, superb fishing and even golf - all at your doorstep. The crystal clear air and rural setting also makes for excellent night time star gazing.
Raetihi Lodge will appeal to discerning buyers wishing to run a blossoming lifestyle business themselves (or remotely with the appointment of an on-site manager), a syndicate of families seeking joint ownership of an extensive private holiday home, or simply someone seeking a significant private residence in a beautiful part of the world.
Rarely does such a property of this scale, with excellent reputation for a unique holiday experience, come to the market in the Marlborough Sounds. This is your opportunity to own, not only a home and business, but also an enviable lifestyle that many can only dream of.
