Contrasting Edenhouse’s location, Bay of Many Coves Resort is set in the heart of the Marlborough Sounds, nestled amid a rolling landscape of native bush on the shoreline of a tranquil bay. Accessed by water taxi from Picton, Bay of Many Coves is a sanctuary with walking tracks, kayaking, seafood farms, fishing, and boat cruises all right on your doorstep.
