Off the Mapp a historic high country merino station in Marlborough, New Zealand, set on the banks of the River Spray in the Waihopai Valley. Host Jenny Mapp invites you to step ‘Off the Mapp’ and follow in the footsteps of the old musterers from a bygone era.

Explore the property on foot. There are over 20km of tracks through a variety of vegetation unique to Marlborough high country, from open tussock to matagouri and mature bush. Watch out for rarer species such as native broom, miniature kowhai and large tree fuchsias. Keen walkers can also take the track from the Cottage @ Off the Mapp to Boundary Creek Cabin @ Off the Mapp. Those looking for a challenge can take a guided trek to the top of Mt Stronvar (summit 1350m).

There are lots of opportunities for bird watching throughout the Station. Keen birdwatchers and photographers will see swallows, kingfishers and terns by the river. Listen to the bellbirds; watch for paradise ducks, Californian quail and many other breeds. The Waihopai is also a natural habitat for the rare New Zealand falcon. In the rock bluffs of the Cannister Valley visitors can often see a nesting pair.

Perched atop a hill overlooking the river valley, and enjoying privacy, natural light, sun and tranquility, the Cottage has one double bedroom, kitchen-dining area, comfortable living room, barbecue cooking option, and a deck with stunning views.

Self-catering facilities are provided, with two-ring cooktop, microwave or BBQ cooking, a fridge, and tea and coffee making facilities. All linen is provided, including high quality Egyptian cotton linen and bedding.

    We loved the cottage, it was in a lovely position and had everything we needed and more, the Mapp family were wonderful hosts and welcomed us to join in different farm activities. We were delighted with our choice of a holiday destination, we have not stopped talking about it since arriving back in Australia, we will be back, bringing friends with us.
