A delightful setting, quiet, close to the beach and so handy to everything in Tasman Bay. Note to self: Bring golf clubs next time- Tasman "Kina Cliffs" course is a gem.
Lovely, cozy cottage with a very warm fire. Well set up and beautifully looked after.
We loved the cottage! VERY clean and well presented, with a beautiful garden.
It was a cold day but the fire was all set up to be lit which made for a cosy night.the bed was really comfy and although the weather was horrendous outside we felt well looked after and our hosts called to make sure we were OK.
We will definitely be back and look forward to next time :o)
The location of this bach was fantastic for family fun walks to Kina beach, trips to pat the goats and general running around in the backyard. We were also able to easily visit other local attractions including breweries, beaches and art galleries.
The plentiful fruit trees were a surprise added bonus.
it was a wonderful place to stay.
A delightful holiday destination in pristine condition. Loved the fruit trees, the stunning garden setting and the birdsong. The resident Tui was a marvelous touch, and with the beach only a minute away it is perfectly located. Thank you so much, we would love to come back one day!
The cottage is gorgeous! We loved all the art and personal touches, the garden is wonderful with all the fruit trees attracting lots of birds! It's comfortable and cosy, nice beds and linen. very close to the beach, and easy drive to the shops and galleries in Motueka. Highly recommended to all.
Great location close to loads of local galleries and the awesome shops and restaurants at Mapua Wharf. Great place to base yourself to explore the Mapua, Motueka and Moutere areas while still being only 30 minutes or so from Nelson. Really comfortable, clean cottage with beautiful gardens and good facilities.
We had a most enjoyable few days at Aroha Cottage. It is comfortable and in a beautiful location. Great outdoor living and sheltered from the wind. A highlight for us was baking fresh figs from the tree on the deck (such a treat), which also attracted lots of the bird life. The cottage was well positioned for easy beach access and for our trips to Mapua (The Apple Shed has good food), Nelson, Golden Bay, and the Abel Tasman National Park. Thanks very much!
Great Location, great spacious property, perfect for a family for a holiday.
The house had everything you would need and also had some fruit trees in the garden.
Loved the garden. It was wonderful to see so many fruit trees. Enjoyed our stay.
fantastic accommodation, excellent location, wonderful food, walks, wine, beaches and so much more to explore in the area. We took our 9 month old baby boy, whom was very well catered for, port a cot and high chair waiting. Aroha is great to spend lazy night's sitting on the deck sipping on a cold glass of sav while your eye fillet is slowly cooking on the bbq. we look forward to our return.
Cute, clean and tidy cottage with charm and character. Would stay here again.
A great property with character, comfortable and spacious. All the equipment and utilities you need for a great stay. Thanks.
The cottage is well maintained with a beautiful and spacious garden. The area is fantastic and easy to explore. We would definitely love to come back!
A lovely cottage, beside the beach and the kids loved playing in the gardens. We had a fun and relaxing holiday, and hope to return again sometime.
Aroha Cottage was lovely, homely and comfortable with a beautiful garden. The cottage had every thing you would need and was meticulously clean. It was a stones throw from Motueka and the Abel Tasman National Park. Lovely situation with only metres to Kina Beach.
We stayed 1 week at Aroha Cottage over the Christmas holidays and had such a lovely time. Ideal location, just seconds from Kina beach but also handy for many scenic day trips.The cottage was thoughtfully decorated with nice touches of art and a well furnished kitchen (even sharp knives!). How our toddler loved exploring every corner of the garden, under the native plants and fruit trees.Some of the best lemons,ever. Really enjoyed spending the evenings out on the deck, barbequing under the tree
Property is very attractive with a lovely garden, trees, deck etc. Facilities all good. Nice seeing the tuis resident in the trees.
A romantic cottage, well maintained, clean, tidy and tastefully decorated. It is surrounded by a lovely garden. - which even has a lemon tree with lemons for your G&Ts if you go at the right time of year.
We loved Aroha Cottage and felt immediately at home. The beach is so close to the cottage we went there twice a day with the kids.
Aroha - Wow what an amazing piece of paradise in paradise. A fantastic little house with a relaxing bach feel to it. It has all that you need plus more. What an amazing deck and garden, it really made for some enjoyable summer bbq's. If your looking for a bach close to many activities this is the place. Beach 60m away, golf up the road plus Mapua, Motueka, Kaiteriteri all within a few minutes drive.
Thanks for a great stay and making this experience so easy......... see you again soon.
Great bach and location. Amazing lemon tree and outdoor gardens. Beautiful beach and very interesting beach stones. Wish we had some more time to stay and forage for some kai. Would stay again!
We liked the setting of Aroha Cottage with its well-maintained, spacious garden and outdoor
table and chairs set up under an old fig tree. Kina Beach is literally just a stroll along the
The Cottage itself is lovely, again well-cared for, with everything one needs.
We are locals to the Nelson/Tasman region and were really happy to find such a great destination for a 'mini-break', although the Cottage and its location certainly warrant
a longer stay.
Perfect spot to explore all of the activities that Tasman/Kina/Moutere region has on offer! Wonderful relaxing cottage, nice to come home to at the end of a full day's adventures!
Cottage was well appointed with everything needed for our stay, just arrived with our bedding & food & enjoyed! Thank-you
