Cottage | Mapua (Ruby Bay) | #29674
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

The studio is in a great location - very near the wharf where there are interesting shops, good coffee and restaurants. Kathy lives next door to the studio but it is not an issue at all... and the studio is private and quiet. It has everything you need and is very tasteful and well-designed - with the loveliest little deck which juts out into the garden. Shower is big and wonderful! The best accommodation we have ever stayed in. Pauline & Marilyn.
This studio is much larger than it looks in the photos and has good cooking,facilities. The bed is very comfortable & the studio has everything you need. There is an attractive table and chairs outside, but there can be mozzies around Mapua,of course that is a general comment and no reflection on the clean, tidy & restful studio which also has a paperback selection. We only stayed one night but would have happily stayed longer. The plums from the garden were delicious
Just to add to Julia's mention of mozzies, They do come sometimes when the sun goes down or on cloudy days (not usually during the day when it's sunny). But to let you know that I have insect screens on the windows so you can have the windows open for a breeze on the hot nights.
