Born in New Zealand, I currently live in Christchurch, although spent my childhood in Auckland. I am passionate about the outdoors and have spent my life sailing, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, mountain running and skiing - in New Zealand and overseas. My children have spent their childhood holidays playing at Moenui. Now, it is wonderful to see them having holidays here with their adult friends. For many years I was reluctant to open up the home for the holiday rental market. However, it has been very heartening to see how respectful and positive the many guests are. It is a pleasure to be able to share this place. I only wish I could meet you all, but it is a bit tricky from Christchurch!
Moenui_Retreat purchased this house in 2003
Why Moenui_Retreat chose Moenui
A holiday in the Marlborough Sounds, filled with mountain biking, swimming, kayaking, fishing and hiking, introduced me to this wonderful region of New Zealand. Excited about the prospect of purchasing a holiday home, I drove around for a day, noting appealing settlements, which also didn't have excessive travel time from Christchurch, nor windy roads. Shortly afterwards I purchased my holiday home in Moenui. We have had many wonderful family holidays here and never tire of what adventures and beauty the Sounds offer.
What makes this house unique
Within the first few minutes of arriving at the property, we fell in love with the beautiful view framed by the native bush. When not adventuring, much of our time is spent on the expansive deck (replaced in 2018), absorbing the ever changing light and ripples playing on the water. I never tire of this view and love the cosiness of the bach. The local community are wonderful - . forever helpful, welcoming and social.
