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

Special conditions: 1 night stays: There is a $25.00 additional charge for 1 night stay ($150pn or $160pn high season) Although we do the cleaning, we do ask that you leave the Studio tidy with dishes done. The Studio is ultra clean and has freshly ironed fine quality sheets.

    We have travelled a lot and this is among the very best that we have stayed at. We would enjoy staying again whether it be for a few days or a few months. The property was lovely, well presented and self-contained.

    This was a lovely property for two people, very well laid out, well appointed and very clean. The location was beautifully quiet and yet Abel Tasman and the Golden Bay were within easy reach. We would very happily stay here in the future.

    Perfect location for exploring the north of the South Island, and for the nearby Mapua Wharf and shops. The Studio is very nicely set up, and the patio is private and a delightful place to sit in the sun. Kathy is an excellent hostess, and we found it to be very quiet, comfortable and perfect for a relaxing holiday. We will definitely be staying there again.

  • great location - a few minutes walk to the Wharf area

    great location - a few minutes walk to the Wharf area. Super quiet and the Studio beautifully appointed with cooking options and plenty of all you need to do this. Awesome bathroom. Quality and tasteful throughout. Court yard area is gorgeous. A very peaceful haven - we didn't want to go.

  • A very peaceful and relaxing space

    A very peaceful and relaxing space. Beautiful decor and garden and even though it's close to all the action at the wharf it's quiet and private. A special place
