This central location in Marlborough Sounds makes it easy to access by air, boat or road. There are direct flights daily from the major NZ centers, Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. By road from Blenheim, it is a very scenic 1.5 hour drive on sealed road. Alternatively you can make a 25 minute drive to Picton, (the port for interisland transport) and then take a 10 minute boat taxi to the Portage.
The Rewa Rewa lots plan
The Portage Bay is extremely popular with New Zealand families as a boating and summer holiday destination.
The Portage Bay area is a multi-sensory experience of the best that Marlborough has to offer.
Residents and visitors can enjoy sea kayaking, fishing, walking national parks, touring Marlborough wineries, or just relaxing with a book in the bird song tranquility on a deck.
The Portage Bay is extremely popular with New Zealand families as a boating and summer holiday destination. However the surface of potential has only just been scratched – The Rewarewa property offers an excellent investment opportunity to benefit from this growing resident and tourist market, with this 12 building site land area now being rarely available.
Local bays and water ways are an intriguing jade and turquoise colour, with ‘fingers’ of bays weaved amongst golden sandy beaches. Untouched native bush thrives in this temperate climate, with vast stands of giant Rimu, Beech, Puketea and Totara trees and Nikau palms and giant Tree-fern groves filling the valleys.
As full list of native NZ bird life species that can be found in any one place in NZ are to be enjoyed in the Portage area. Stand on the deck or just open the windows and soak up the dawn harmony of Tui and Bell bird song that is a truly a melodious natural wonder.
A unique setting.
A public boat launching ramp is directly across the road within 2 minutes walk from the Rewarewa property, in front of the Portage Bay Store and adjacent to the marina and car park.
As this is one of the very few public boat launching ramps in the Kenepuru Sounds, this is also another draw-card to residential growth and visitors. Local shop, chartered fishing, yacht hire, mountain bike hire, and kayak hire are available as part of the Portage Resort’s range of eco-tourism facilities. For all its natural tranquility, there is a definite dynamic feeling when in the Portage that there is always lots to do, on land and water.
The peaceful and uncomplicated setting of the Portage Bay native bush amphitheatre is a unique setting that draws those who experience it to return, time and time again. The Rewarewa property title envelops virtually the entire amphitheatre of native bush backdrop of the Portage Bay that you can see in the photos.
The property dominates this beautiful Bay in terms of land area and position, providing an unrivalled development opportunity to build further on this well recognized tourism heart of the Marlborough Sounds.
