Kakanui - Modern, Sunny Coastal Escape

 Enjoy the modern interior with great outlook 

Punanga - Waterfront Cottage in Quiet Location

 The view is ever-changing and beautiful. Decks are well placed so you can enjoy all the view and garden has to offer. Friendly local birds are a bonus. Comfy beds and well arranged living/dining & kitchen areas. Lovely place to relax, with many walking tracks nearby, if you can tear yourself away from the property. Beach access is well constructed. Great family getaway. 

Stunning view, peaceful location

 Excellent accommodation,perfect situation, well located for access to scenic drive via Queen Charlotte 's Drive. 

AROHA COTTAGE at Tasmans idyllic Kina Beach

 Aroha Cottage is unique, quirky and cute. It is beautifully presented and maintained. Both the garden and interior were immaculate. A pleasure to stay at, it was especially lovely to spend Valentines Day there. Location is very good, easy access to the beach and pleasant locale. Good area for walking or biking and exploring. We enjoyed our stay, thank you. 

AROHA COTTAGE at Tasmans idyllic Kina Beach

 Aroha is a beautiful and exceptionally maintained property conveniently located for both Nelson and Abel Tasman. My daughter loved picking blackberries in the garden and a few glasses of wine were enjoyed on the deck by me! 2 mins walk from the beach and a great general store not far away for a yummy ice cream. The stairs in the property are quite steep, so it might be useful to bear this in mind when young children will be holidaying here.
