Travellers' Choice
Bay Vista Waterfront Motel offers the only Picton accommodation ON the waterfront. We aren't just a motel, but a destination. Wake up to the sound of a Tui or Cacadas in our native bush and the smell of the sea at your doorstep. All our waterfront units are located right on the water’s edge with stunning views overlooking Waikawa Bay & the Marina. We are only 5 minutes by car from Picton township & have ample of off street parking for boats and trailers. It's only a short stroll to the local restaurant at the Marina, the boat launching ramps and playground.

What a wonderful suprise staying at such a stunning location. Clean, spacious and with everything we needed we will definitely return. Our hosts couldn't have been more helpful, we had our jet ski trailer and bikes with us and there was plenty of room for parking. Perfect!

This is our regular stopover when heading South, this time we stayed for 2 nights, explored a bit more of Picton and just relaxed in our Motel. The units are being refurbished that is taking the motel to the next level. Rachel is doing an amazing job with her management skills. Highly recommended and we are looking forward to our next visit.

What a warm welcome we received on our arrival. We stayed May/June 2021. Our unit was just metres from the beach, with glorious views of Waikawa Marina. A peaceful retreat with black swans on our lawn

We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit at the motel. It was clean and comfortable. The view is amazing. Rachel, the manager was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed going to the Jolly Rodger pub which was a short walk away. We would stay here again if in the area.

I stayed here for two nights. The view was fabulous, down the lawn to the waterfront and the marina near by. The room was lovely. It was clean, very spacious and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom/shower was great. Kitchen had everything I needed. Lovely location and found it very quiet.
