Ngaio Bay, 5 km before beautiful French Pass, looks NW to D'Urville Island just across the water, ocean, mountains and sunsets. A magnificent wild coastline, abundant marine life, dolphins and seabirds. A wilderness gem! Take the spectacular, long and winding road from Rai Valley, Marlborough, through bush, forest and farmland to our remote, secluded, sandy bay. It is an hour and a half of vistas and wilderness, passing through the small settlement of Okiwi Bay en route. Our home nestles in a lovely garden, right on the sea on the Northwest tip of the outer Sounds, opposite D'Urville Island, and just a short distance from the awesome waters of French Pass. We are approximately two and a half hours from both Nelson and Blenheim and about 2 3/4 hours drive from Picton. Turn left at our mailbox.. “The Sonnelands Ngaio Bay” and drive down 1½ km to our home. Phone first for directions, also for instructions in wet weather.
