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.

Special conditions: All 1 night bookings are charged at a minimum fee of $150 for 2 guests, regardless of the season

    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"

    Such a lovely place! Everything in the house is good quality and it is fully equipped. Great kitchen and bathroom. The house is cosy and lovingly decorated. Very nice to have the Aroha subject throughout! Sooo close to the beach! We fell in love with the garden and its mix of natives and fruit trees - the birds love it too, wonderful having Tuis and Silvereyes around while breakfasting in the sunshine. Lou, I love your little ceramic Kereru on the kitchen windowsill!!! Thank you very much.

    Aroha is a charming little cottage set in a beautiful garden, ideal for two couples or a small family. We truly appreciated the seaside decor and the care and attention put into making the cottage so cosy. Ripe figs and raspberries from the garden made our stay just perfect. We have already recommended Aroha to others. Thank you Lou.
