The Studio is a gorgeous one bedroom (sleeps 2 to 4 people) studio unit, and is tastefully decorated and furnished with attention to detail. The living area enjoys two sofas (one is a sofa-bed with a slat base for a comfortable nights sleep) and Freeview TV and 'blue-ray' DVD. Internet is available free of charge.

The bedroom has a king-sized bed, with ranch-sliders that open onto the private patio. The open plan living area has two couches, one of which opens into a comfortable slat bed - just the place for the kids or even another couple! The kitchen is fully equipped with a full range, microwave and dishwasher, for a home-away-from-home stay. The bathroom has a double-ended bath (just the place to relax with a glass of wine, or to read your book) with a separate walk-in shower, toilet and front-loader washing machine.

The sun-bathed, totally private patio off the bedroom offers plenty of space to stretch out and enjoy the sun, or, if you want to get out of the sun, there is the covered veranda - just the place to sit and listen to the tui singing to you!

  • Great property for 4 people

    Great property for 4 people. Well-equipped. For us, it was a convenient base for our day trips to Nelson, Cape Farewell/Wharariki beach, Abel Tasman National Park. Mapua itself was private, romantic and picturesque. We will recommend to our friends who would like to visit the Tasman area.

  • The Studio was a real home away from home

    The Studio was a real home away from home. Surprisingly peaceful and private for being so centrally located - just around the corner from a bakery, supermarket, pub etc. Everything was supplied that you could think of and the standard of furniture and fittings etc above what I expected.

    The property was very clean and tidy and a lovely place to stay. It was perfect being so close to the shops and the wharf at Mapua
