    Would highly recommend spending a night or few at Anakiwa Lodge! If travelling off the ferry it is only 30 min drive - be sure to do the scenic drive along the coast. The location of the lodge is on one of the remote Sounds - you can sunbath and swim close by - it is picturesque. The owners are really friendly and rent kayaks for free + there is a lovely, clean Jacuzzi pool available on the property. Clean rooms, clean and spacious kitchen facilities, amazing views - would love to visit again!

    Great stay at Anakiwa lodge. Daryl the owner was great, and allowed us out on his Kayaks for hours with no charge. Great kitchen facilities, and the lounge room with the surround sound speakers and huge TV was epic - we watched a film every night, and it was a great way to finish the day. The Hot Tub was also great after a long day of walking. Overall, a great relaxed location (40 mins from Picton), and with great access to the Queen Charlotte track. Couldn’t recommend enough!!
