The Lodge at Te Rawa – Pelorus Sound
If you’re boating out of Havelock Marina this season, be sure to check out the Lodge at Te Rawa!
Te Rawa are now the only place in the Pelorus Sounds where you can buy fuel with 91 Fuel available for all boaties! They have a great floating pontoon for boats, as well as having just completed a large jetty extension to accommodate more boats – so arriving in convoy won’t be a problem!
Dave and Debbie have an updated menu, which you can view at their new website – check it out www.terawa.co.nz
As well as ample parking on the floater, Te Rawa also caters to those who want to moor up (8 moorings available) into/out of the Lodge they have a brand new tender that they will use to pick you up, and drop you back. For convenience, they also offer ice, bait and burly bombs, and barista Coffee and icreams from the Café!
Te Rawa also has some great accommodation – with the self-contained luxury accommodation offering, Kereru Cottage.
With two separate bedrooms, and a sunny open plan kitchen and living area, it is perfect for a couple, friends travelling together, or families. The totally private elevated site is 25 metres from the sea and cannot be seen from any other part of the property. It enjoys an amazing outlook, with full glass frontage and a glass balustrade on the deck, the view across the Te Hoiere/ Pelorus Sound from the living area is completely uninterrupted.
Each bedroom is equipped with twin beds, which can be joined to make a luxurious king size bed. Extra guests can be accommodated on a sofa bed in the living room by arrangement. A wrap-around deck allows guests to enjoy the sounds of the birds and the sea, and the property features a large outdoor bath in which to enjoy a soak after hiking through the nearby bush tracks, or as a special place to enjoy a glass of wine or read a few chapters of your book.
Cooking facilities and a refrigerator allow self-catering if desired, or a 2-minute walk brings you to the Lodge at Te Rawa’s coffee shop, bar and restaurant if you prefer to relax and let them do the cooking.
As well as being a romantic retreat or convivial meeting place for sailors and fishing parties, it’s wonderful for children. Many guests have great memories of coming to Te Rawa as kids and experiencing the sheer joy of taking running leaps off the end of the wharf or exploring the beach for jelly fish and crabs, or filling pockets with multi-colored sea glass and shells to take home.
Te Rawa is definitely a “Top Spot” for Marlborough Boaties, and one that we are happy to recommend. The hospitality of the team is legendary and we always hear good things from our boaties when they arrive back in to our marinas.
