welcome to the lodge at te rawa

The lodge will be closed for the 2024 winter season from 6th May 2024 and will reopen 1st October 2024.  There will be an onsite manager during this time and welcome all who require 91 petrol; available 7 days per week, all year round.  

Nestled amongst native bush on the crystal clear waters of Te Hoiere/Pelorus Sound, Te Rawa offers magnificent views, total relaxation and all the comforts of home in a unique environment. Wake up to the sound of the sea and native birds, enjoy the emerald green waters and surrounding bays, and spend your time kayaking, fishing, hiking or just relaxing. Far away from the nearest road, Te Rawa can be accessed by your own boat, the Pelorus Mailboat, a water taxi, plane or Helicopter.

Dave and Debbie purchased Te Rawa in 2021 with their friendly staff, Penny and Michael, as your daily hosts.  Whilst Dave and Debbie don't live there, they love to spend weekends there pottering around the property.  

We have four sea view rooms, plus backpacker accommodation, a coffee & ice-cream shop and a waterfront restaurant, with heaps of activities available to you, so you surely won't get bored.

Te Rawa is the perfect venue for your special function and/or important family occasions. Call us on 03 579 8285 or email

what people have to say about us

What people say
"We were 16 family members so hired entire lodge and it was amazing. Hosts Dave, Debbie, Penny, Nathan, as well as Marmite and Rob were all fantastic, especially to our kids! Kids spend all day fishing and jumping of the wharf. The accommodation was great, as was been able to head down to the bar for a drink and meal. Highly recommend!"
