This sought-after central location in the Marlborough Sounds makes it easy to access by air, boat or road. There are direct flights daily from every major NZ city centre – Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. When travelling 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 South Island’s port for the Interislander ferry connection) and then take a 10 minute water taxi to the Portage Bay.
The Rewa Rewa Lots Plan
The Portage Bay is extremely popular with New Zealand families as a top 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 on the deck surrounded by native birdsong tranquility.
The Portage Bay has been treasured by generations of New Zealand families as a holiday destination for relaxation, boating, hiking and more.
The Rewa Rewa properties rezoning from Rural to Coast Living, finally makes available the 13 sizable Rewa Rewa property sites in this amazing natural amphitheatre of pristine native bush. For a new generation of lucky families to build their holiday dream homes, there is a uniquely neighbourless feel with property sizes ranging from 4,000 sqm to 22,000 sqm.
All the expansive new blocks provide: serene native woodland settings, gentle lower slopes for ease of building, north-west facing to capture full sun and views of the Sounds, drive-on access with newly formed roads, connected mains power and engineer’s geotechnical certification, boat launching ramp in the bay.
These properties are a rare offering in a time when rezoning consents for the Marlborough Sounds will not be repeated. At reasonable prices, the blocks are an excellent lifestyle and investment opportunity to benefit from the growing holiday home rental and tourist market. These unique 13 building sites may only be available for a limited time, so please enquire to have the best choice of sites.
Extensive sea views of the Sounds from the 13 Rewa sites are captivating, with fingers of blue bays weaved amongst golden sandy beaches. Untouched native bush thrives in this temperate climate, with vast stands of giant Rimu, Matai, Beech, Puketea and Totara trees, alongside Tree Ferns and Nikau palms groves.
The extensive variety of native NZ bird life species is another of nature’s treats to be enjoyed on the Rewa Rewa properties. Stand on the deck in your new woodland retreat home, or just open the windows and soak up the dawn harmony of Tui and Bell Bird song that is truly a melodious natural wonder.
A unique setting of world-class natural beauty.
A public boat launching ramp is directly across the road within 2 minutes walk from the Rewa Rewa 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 Rewa Rewa 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-recognised holiday destination in the heart of the Marlborough Sounds.
