Here is some samples of what the guests are saying:

Quiet tranquil and just fabulous: comfy bed: great shower thanks.

Your holiday cottage looked perfect on the internet AND IT IS.

Bliss, perfect Studio with outdoor setting so tastefully decorated. Peaceful relaxing all we were looking for.

The Studio is new and contemporary with polished concrete floors but still cosy and homely, has a great tiled shower, it is tastefully and simply decorated and immaculately clean.

French doors open onto your own enclosed timber deck, cook a chooky or vege burger on the barbecue and you're welcome to use herbs from the garden.

There are 2 bikes here which you are welcome to use and a bike shed if you want to bring your own. There is off street parking for the car too.

If the nights get a bit chilly there is a toasty warm Studio wood fire (which I love), very very cosy.

The Great Taste Cycle Trail: We are just a couple of minutes from the Wharf where the Mapua Ferry carries people and their bikes connecting Mapua to Rabbit Is as part of the cycle trail linking to Nelson and the other way to Kaiteriteri.

The Wharf and the village has a variety of unique shops show casing local artists work, restaurants and cafes fish and chip shop and the Golden Bear Brewery (boutique brewery) often has live music for you to kick back relax and enjoy.

I want to mention too that Godwits migrate all the way from Alaska (11000km) to spent time with us and they come to our estuary which is at the end of our street. I find that amazing. At the end of the street is also a tranquil place to watch the sun go down

    Loved the studio, lots of lovely details and special touches made it feel very homey and comfortable. Also loved the covered bbq area and the little private outdoor patio surrounded by garden.

  • A fantastic home away from home

    A fantastic home away from home. 5* Studio extremely clean and nice and and quiet. The free use of bicycles was a bonus as able to cycle to jester house for brunch also get the ferry across to rabbit island taking the bikes. Great to be walking distance to restaurants and also great situation to drive further afield. Highly recommend this studio and we will be back.

    The modern studio was spotlessly clean, and had everything one needs while away. It is beautifully furnished. The fire was lovely on the cold nights, and the patio beautiful on the sunny mornings and evenings. It is well situated a few minutes walk from the Mapua wharf and eating places. Mapua has some of the best fish ( fish and chip shop and resturants) that I have had in a long time. I will definitely be back.

    The studio was very well appointed - everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Lovely comfortable bed with lovely linen, and a very nice bathroom - great shower. Having the log burner made us very cosy, and the outside courtyard was charming. The studio was close to everything - restaurants, and lovely gift shops. Great central spot to visit the area.
