  • Abel Tasman National Park and Nelson, everything is so close.
  • Not beachfront, but you can hear the waves and be at the beach in just a few seconds
  • Taste Tasman cycle trail just minutes away

Aroha Cottage is filled with art, photos and treasures from our travels. With a new kitchen and bathroom, cosy wood burner for winter, fabulous private garden, huge deck, quiet beach and free wifi, it is perfect for couples and overseas tourists.

We have just added a lovely rug to make it extra warm and snuggly during winter.

The cottage is only 50 meters from Kina Beach, start the day down at the beach watching the sunrise over Nelson.

Situated halfway between Nelson and The Abel Tasman National Park, Kina Beach is a quiet seaside community yet shops and cafes are only minutes away.
Motueka township is 10 minutes drive with 2 large supermarkets and all the other facilities you could possibly need. Mapua is only 10 minutes in the other direction with Boutique Breweries, Art and Craft shops and Restaurants overlooking the harbour. We also have our local Tasman store for local wine, olive oil and basic supplies.

Perfectly positioned for visiting both Nelson and The Abel Tasman National Park, famous for its great walks and stunning scenery. Kayaking and walking is the popular way to see the park, but for the slightly less energetic, take a boat trip instead.

The Nelson Lakes and Golden Bay are both an easy day trip and the Nelson market, held every Saturday morning, is well worth a visit for New Zealand made arts and crafts and fresh local produce.

The challenging Tasman Golf Club, 1km past the gate, welcomes visitors. Not a golfer..... its worth the walk or drive, for the stunning views over Tasman bay and the bar might be open!

With safe swimming, boating, and fishing, plus award winning local vineyards and cafes, Kina Beach really is the perfect holiday location.

Kina Beach is only a 25minute drive from Nelson airport.

 Loved our stay at Aroha cottage and at the area in general - we will definitely return when able. The gardens of the cottage are beautiful and the cottage itself is wee but cosy and well appointed. The fire cranks and no issues with staying warm. Well located to explore the area with great restaurants (particularly Jellyfish!), cafes and galleries a short drive away. Thx Lou and Johnny! Ps we want the aroha mat!!! Fell in love with it! 

 Great place to stay. Fire kept it very warm in the evenings and it is very close to the beach 

 Really nice little cottage very close to the beach, well equipped and taken care off. Hope to come back for a bit longer in the future. 

 Lovely cottage, cosy and clean with everything you need. Fantastic location really close to the beach. 

 Great location, very central to lots of incredible places to visit! .
