Secluded, relaxing country setting. Family home rented for the season. Offers rural views and a prospect of the sea from the deck. Enclosed garden Resident bird life includes tui, fantail and bellbird. Enjoy the stars in the dark skies at night.

Close to the Ruby Bay beaches; only 5 minutes drive to the Mapua cafes and bars. Kina Peninsula (golf course) is only 10 minutes away. Tree Top Retreat is only a slight detour off the official Great Taste Cycle Trail. It is your gateway to Abel Tasman and Kahurangi National Parks. The perfect mix of country relaxation and village living.

There is internet and TV and a DVD player but no television Signal but we have netflixs anf internet on the TV. There is good internet.

Special conditions: -Children - OK for toddlers but special care needs to be taken with windows on upper floor. - we request that the noise is kept down after 10pm and before 7am. - As it is a family house, some family things will be left in the house and we will store some things in a locked room that will not be available for use. -There are 3 resident cats our preference is that our guests would feed them (of course, we will provide food)

    The out look was nice with the trees around the only negative was that we where not expecting the hosts home to be so close.

    Lovely quiet spot, Tuis a plenty. The cottage is clean, comfortable and centrally located to Mapua and the surrounding Tasman district. Ideal for exploring the area.
