Off the Mapp is an historic high country merino station in Marlborough, New Zealand, set on the banks of the River Spray in the Waihopai Valley. Hosts Jenny and Roland Mapp invite you to step ‘Off the Mapp’ and follow in the footsteps of the old musterers from a bygone era. Stay in our Kiwi bush retreat, Boundary Creek Cabin. Only accessable by 4x4 wheel drive. Transfers are available. 10km/ 45 mins from homestead.

Hike on the Waihopai Walking Track, swim in the crystal clear Spray and Waihopai rivers, explore our conservation wilderness, help with our predator control programme, go bird watching, guided hunting, fishing… you’ll discover peace, privacy, and rugged natural beauty all year round.

Find a taste of kiwi culture with added comfort in the Boundary Creek Cabin, tucked 10kms up the Spray valley and surrounded by native birds, rare plants, and a waterfall creek. Warm and inviting, the fully insulated and double glazed cabin has beech flooring, macrocarpa walls and a red cedar roof. Boundary Creek Cabin is a perfect retreat where guests can be close to nature, watching for game from the veranda in the evenings. Boundary Creek Cabin can sleep up to six in large timber bunks with comfortable mattresses. On warm days, sit outside at a picnic table with outdoor gas BBQ cooking. Inside, a sofa and a log burner fireplace make it a perfect retreat year round.

The cabin is equipped with a kitchenette with modern gas burners for cooking and filtered water on tap. Solar electric light is provided. Wooden steps lead down to the gas heated outdoor shower beside rock pools and moss-clad rocks. The cabin also offers the convenience (and bush luxury!) of a separate flush toilet.

Special conditions: Guiding is available for walkers, fishermen or hunters for $500 per day. 4 wheel drive transport to cabin: $100 each way, allow 45 minutes for a slow 4x4 track. 10 km from homestead.

    This was simply a jewel of a location and the hut was fantastically cosy and well thought out. Everything had been thought about. We would happily have stayed forever but unfortunately we had only booked for 3 nights. It is simple, even basic, but if that's what you're looking for - and we were- it doesn't get better than this. Gorgeous
