    The location was superb; such a view and the peace would be hard to equal anywhere. The cottage was very comfortable; clearly a much loved family home. The kayaks and the access to salad fruit and veg was much appreciated. The best dishwasher we have ever found in a holiday let.Bronte Road East itself is an interesting road.My birdwatching husband loved spoonbill island. Lastly we liked the hosts own artwork in the cottage, their gallery is next door.

  • Fantastic views across the estuary

    Fantastic views across the estuary. Very well appointed and positioned a short drive from Mapua Village. Also a short drive from Neudorf Vinyard and Mahana Estates which are well worth a visit for the views alone. Motueka & Nelson City are within easy reach. A beautiful peaceful place to relax on the deck or by the waterside.

    Thank you Darryl and Lesley for a wonderful 6 nights at the beautiful Bronte cottage. The house was thoughtfully equipped and immaculately tidy, and its hosts were exceptionally helpful, including answering questions we had due to our son's medical condition. We so appreciated the extra goodies left for us when we arrived, and will certainly be back again. Thanks again guys, was a pleasure!

  • What a relaxing and well located Bach

    What a relaxing and well located Bach. Everything you need was provided to ensure we had a great stay. Lovely and welcoming hosts. A great deck and lovely gardens full of birds and other wildlife, the hedgehog was a real treat. The waterfront area down the hill was good for chilling and the kayaks were well used on the safe lagoon paddling around enjoying the scenery. Easy cycle ride to many wineries and the Food Trail. Definitely on our list to revisit !
