1 of 2 new architecturally designed units offer modern, boutique accommodation & expansive outdoor deck. Both the Orange Apartment (listing# 33285), a 1 bedroom, self-contained apartment and the Blue Studio, a fully equipped studio, are a warm & 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. A secure, covered lock-up garage is provided for bicycles. The two units, separated by a covered breezeway, can be booked together as 1 house (listing #33088) , providing proximity for those ‘together’ times with extended family & friends, plus individual privacy for ‘time-out’.

We are located right in Mapua – great coffee, bakery, 4square market, shops and restaurants on the Wharf complex all within 3 minute walking distance . There is nowhere else in NZ with such a 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…all on on the Wharf , overlooking the Waimea estuary , with a view to die for.

Mapua is the ideal place to base a Nelson, Tasman Bay or Golden Bay holiday . 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 35-minute drive to Nelson City in one direction or the entrance to Abel Tasman Park in the other, or head to the Moutere hills for the best wineries in the region and world, or to Nelson Lakes or Mt Arthur parks. On a Great Taste Trail cycle adventure? Take your bike on the Mapua Ferry to explore Rabbit Island, Richmond, Brightwater or cycle up into the Moutere Hills and wineries, or north to Ruby Bay, Motueka, Kaiteriteri and Marahau, beautiful locations in their own right and the gateways to the golden sand beaches and native bush of the Abel Tasman National Park.

Special conditions: No smoking on property. Shorter stays? Longer stays? - please enquire.
