Wharekaretu Holiday Home

 Fantastic location, only a short walk to town and such a beautiful home! 

Kina Beach Holiday Home

 We had a fantastic time at Kina Beach. The write up on Bookabach didn't do the house credit - it was superb. Being mud brick construction it was always nice and cool despite the hot weather. The kids loved cooking on the open fire and paddling in the kayaks, and having direct beach access was a real plus. Whilst it didn't bother us as there were only two adults, you may like to consider buying some more wine glasses! We would definitely come back. Great bike ride to get f&c's in Mapua.

 Perfect position making the most of everything Nelson has to offer. Very friendly, attentive and welcoming hosts. The property is modern, stylish, and very comfortable with everything you could possibly need. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it. It will suit a variety of needs. The photos on this occasion are true to reality it is as fantastic as it appears.

 Couldn't recommend highly enough. A spacious house with a fantastic view and indoor/outdoor living. Felt that we were on holiday as soon as we arrived. Very handy to beaches, wineries,cafes,golf course. We hope to be back.
