The Orange Apartment is an architecturally designed unit that offers modern, boutique accommodation with an expansive outdoor deck. Both the Orange Apartment and the Blue Studio (listing #33292), a fully equipped studio, are a warm and comfortable base for a holiday, romantic retreat, or a weekend escape. Polished concrete floors with underfloor heating ensure you are cozy and warm year round. The two units, separated by a covered breezeway, can be booked together (listing #33088), providing proximity for those ‘together’ times with extended family and friends, with individual privacy for ‘time-out’.

We are located right in the heart of Mapua – great coffee, a bakery, the 4Square market, shops and restaurants on the Mapua Wharf are all within 4 minutes walking distance. Mapua is unique with its concentration of amazing restaurants and cafes in such a beautiful location. Breakfast, lunch or dinner at the Jellyfish or Appleshed, fish and chips from the Smokehouse, local beer from the Golden Bear, coffee and treats at Alberta's … all on on the Wharf, overlooking the Waimea estuary and Rabbit Island.

Mapua is the ideal place to base your Nelson, Tasman Bay or Golden Bay. The region has it all: cycling, swimming, surfing, kayaking, fishing, tramping, walking the beach, wine tasting, art and craft galleries and a choice of golf courses! Take a short drive to Nelson City in one direction or the entrance to Abel Tasman Park in the other. Head to the Moutere Hills for the best wineries in the region or to Nelson Lakes or Mt Arthur parks. On a Great Taste Trail cycle adventure? Take your bike on the Mapua Ferry and explore Rabbit Island, Richmond, Brightwater, or cycle up into the Moutere Hills and wineries. Bike north to Ruby Bay, Motueka, Kaiteriteri and Marahau, beautiful locations and the gateways to the golden sand beaches and native bush of the Abel Tasman National Park.

  • The property was as new, very clean and well equipped

    The property was as new, very clean and well equipped. Within walking distance of restaurants and wharf area. The only down side for us was the bad weather but of course this had nothing to do with the accommodation or the host - we couldn't fault them!

    The property is impeccable. It is located in the area between Nelson and Able Tasman Park. There are great bakeries and restaurants within walking distance from the property. We definitely stay there again.

  • Lovely clean, dry, warm, beautiful home

    Lovely clean, dry, warm, beautiful home. Great location only 2 mins walk from wharf, fishnchips and beer! Everything you need in the kitchen from blenders to coffee making. John was very kind and helpful. Amazing home, would definitely stay again, so comfortable, homely, but very modern all at the same time.
