The Blue Studio is an architecturally designed unit that offers modern, boutique accommodation with an expansive outdoor deck. Both the Blue Studio and the Orange Apartment (listing# 33285), a 1 bedroom self-contained apartment, 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.

  • This is a lovely bach, and we would highly recommend it

    This is a lovely bach, and we would highly recommend it. It's very modern, clean, well decorated and has everything you need. The outdoor area, with BBQ and seating, was a real standout for us, and we used it a lot. The bed was very comfortable, and the bach was quiet and dark at night. Although you share the property with one other bach and the friendly owners, it still feels very quiet and private. Less than 5 minutes walk to the Four Square, a bakery (with coffee) and a pub.

  • What a perfect escape

    What a perfect escape. The Blue Studio has everything you could need. And more. It's spacious, yet felt cosy. Light and airy, yet warm when needed. Close enough to walk everywhere yet still felt away enough for tranquility. Our visit to the Blue Studio was the first of many. We've had to debate about raving to others about it. Or not ??
