Description

  • Abel Tasman National Park and Nelson, everything is so close.
  • Not beachfront, but you can hear the waves and be at the beach in just a few seconds
  • Taste Tasman cycle trail just minutes away

Aroha Cottage is filled with art, photos and treasures from our travels. With a new kitchen and bathroom, cosy wood burner for winter, fabulous private garden, huge deck, quiet beach and free wifi, it is perfect for couples and overseas tourists.

The cottage is only 50 meters from Kina Beach, start the day down at the beach watching the sunrise over Nelson.

Situated halfway between Nelson and The Abel Tasman National Park, Kina Beach is a quiet seaside community yet shops and cafes are only minutes away.

Motueka township is 10 minutes drive with 2 large supermarkets and all the other facilities you could possibly need. Mapua is only 10 minutes in the other direction with Boutique Breweries, Art and Craft shops and Restaurants overlooking the harbour. We also have our local Tasman store for local wine, olive oil and basic supplies.

Perfectly positioned for visiting both Nelson and The Abel Tasman National Park, famous for its great walks and stunning scenery. Kayaking and walking is the popular way to see the park, but for the slightly less energetic, take a boat trip instead.

The Tasman cycle trail is at the end of the road.

The challenging Tasman Golf Club, 1km past the gate, welcomes visitors. Not a golfer..... its worth the walk or drive, for the stunning views over Tasman bay and the bar might be open!

With safe swimming, boating, and fishing, plus award winning local vineyards and cafes, Kina Beach really is the perfect holiday location.

Kina Beach is only a 25minute drive from Nelson airport.

  • Perfect kiwi bach just steps from a glorious beach

    Perfect kiwi bach just steps from a glorious beach. We stayed here in mostly rainy, chilly weather and the firebox does indeed heat the entire place in minutes. And the Nelson sun shines through for beach walks And in summer, it would be fabulous here -- outdiir deck with table in a sweet garden out the back.

  • The cottage had everything we required

    The cottage had everything we required. It was clean, comfortable, warm and well equipped. The garden was beautiful and it had a lemon tree for our Gin and Tonics. The beach is just round the corner. Great location and we would highly recommend the owner, Lou and this gorgeous cottage.

    Great location for the beach! Also a good location if you want to cover the wider area of Nelson and the bays. Handy to Mapua and Motueka. Easy drive to Richmond and Nelson.

  • Aroha Cottage - LOVE at first sight

    Aroha Cottage - LOVE at first sight. We immidately felt home. The cottage is perfect. Quiet, warm, cosy with a lot of personal things that gives you the feeling the house loves you too. "You really step into the heart". A brand new fully equiped kitchen with fridge and freezer. Washing machine, good size living room with comfortable chairs and a bench with colourfull pillows. But the best thing is THE GARDEN! A deck with chairs, a figtree, heaps of birds. And the beach is so closeby.

    At Mapua's wharf precinct the Smokehouse fish shop has an arrangement with Rimu Grove Wine bar that let's you order the "just off the boat" quality fish with top class chips and then eat them when you buy wines or beers at Rimu free of charge...kind of a "no-brainer"
