Cottage | Mapua (Ruby Bay) | #37405
Quince Cottage nestles on gentle green slopes overlooking Mapua and the Tasman Sea with distant views of Nelson. The beautiful ever-changing Mt Arthur and Nelson Ranges provide a stunning backdrop, making this a haven of tranquillity, bathed in sunshine.
The cottage sits amongst secluded, established gardens brimming with fruit and nut trees. There are numerous sunny spots in the gardens to soak up the restful atmosphere, and when the sun gets too intense, a dip in the shared swimming pool provides a refreshing pause.
Quince Cottage is a completely independent, fully furnished, self-catering cottage with three double bedrooms that sleeps up to six people. There is a wood-burner for the colder months.
Located in the heart of the Tasman district, this is the perfect location to enjoy a relaxing holiday or short break. There is so much to explore in this rich and diverse region. It is a perfect base for day trips to the three regional Parks we are so proud of – Abel Tasman, Nelson Lakes and Kahurangi.
If you are a cyclist, we are just a stones throw from The Tasman Great Taste Cycle Trail, or, you can discover the rich tapestry of vineyards, boutique breweries and cider producers, artisan food producers, exceptional farmers markets, artists’ studios and galleries.
For the adventurous, take your pick from a menu of activities on our doorstep – hiking, kayaking, boating, paddle boarding; or more simply just picnicking and swimming in the sea or rivers in the area. And at the end of the day, unwind with a glass of local wine and a book, enjoy the bucolic atmosphere, or relax by the swimming pool.
Whilst the property is secluded and restful, you are just a few minutes from Mapua with its popular and lively wharf area providing a great choice of cafes, restaurants and boutiques. And it’s an easy 20 minutes drive from Nelson, with its airport and arts, film and music festivals.

Quince cottage is beautifully presented,clean and very stylish. Crisp white linen on the beds and well equipped. Situated in a beautiful rural area yet just a few minutes by car to the centre of Mapua. Highly recommended for a tranquil getaway and perfect for families.
Its a lovely cottage in the picturesque rolling hills behind Mapua Bay. Everything was very clean and well-appointed (showing loads of care and attention to detail). Swimming pool next to the adjacent house offered welcome relief for our three boys. The area is great cycling country (we took the ferry over to Rabbit Island & cycled around it). Much recommended.
