Description

Mapua Heights Cottage is a comfortable and stylish two-bedroom holiday cottage with magnificent views. It offers privacy, space and the opportunity to relax in a stunning rural setting. It is just 5 minutes drive from Mapua, with its picturesque wharf, popular cafes and restaurants and unique shops and galleries.

New Zealand art and sculpture feature in the cottage. A pot-belly stove keeps the whole cottage cosy in the winter, with a sturdy guard available if needed.

Our holiday cottage provides the ideal base from which to explore the Nelson-Tasman region. You may choose to enjoy the many beaches, sample the region's food and wine, visit the bustling Nelson Saturday market, tour the wineries and art outlets, have fun cycling, kayaking or walking in the area or tramping in one of the region's three National Parks. The possibilities are endless, hence many visitors choose to return.

Too much choice? Owners Vivien and Ken are on site to ensure your comfort and provide local knowledge.

    We loved our time at mapua heights cottage and would have loved yo stay longer. The cottage itself is beautiful and the views are amazing. The owners were extremely friendly. 10 min drive to the beach, vineyards down the street. For our family it was the perfect place to spend Christmas

    Superb, very comfortable cottage with stunning views. A true home away from home. Loved the ‘glow worm’ walk at night, and Nina the deer! The location is great, with easy access to the beautiful Nelson region. We would love to return one day. Thanks Vivien and Ken for a great stay.
