Racecourse/show grounds are nearby and a wide range of sports facilities are also easily accessed within minutes.

Beautiful beaches, wine trails, abundant cafes and restaurants are a feature of the Tasman district. There are too many attractions to mention so check with Nelson City and Tasman District web sites to view programmes of events such as musical, sports and recreational happenings, etc.

This is a wonderful place to enjoy whatever you wish. The Nelson region is a food bowl and an amazing beauty spot with a small population. Outdoor excursions of any kind can be accessed from freedom walks to organised tours and trips.

Nelson has a very pleasant climate and a friendly community. Orchards, vineyards, market gardens and all associated outlets for the production of superb food and wine are here.

Be prepared to have your senses enlivened or just enjoy a peaceful break.

Owners on site have a wealth of knowledge to tap into and are happy to give time to answer questions. Your privacy and comfort are paramount. The property is a total garden with fruit and vegetables often available for sharing. This is a keen gardener's delight.

Special conditions: Suitable for non smoking adults only. A single bed is available in the lounge area (generally used as a day bed) for those who prefer separate sleeping arrangements but the ensuite access from the double bedroom is a consideration. The bed can be moved into the bedroom prior to occupancy, if requested. Please make this known when booking. (Both beds are extremely comfortable). An eclectic library is available for holiday reading but books remain with the property please.

    Location was perfect for us, loved being out of town. A car is needed if staying here. Cottage had everything we required. Would definitely stay here again, when visiting the South Island.

    The cottage is spacious and comfortable for 2 people, and there is plenty of room for a third. The kitchen facilities are limited but adequate for breakfast and simple meals. The location was ideal for us, with easy access to Nelson and Abel Tasman Park. It was like living in the middle of a fruit basket with all the orchards and vineyards around. Our only serious complaint concerns the WiFi, which is accessible only by going to the owner's house at the back.
