  • This is the perfect place to come and relax, and get away from the busy urban and city stresses.
  • Modern self contained new cottage with private decks and too many features to list

This newly completed, self-contained accommodation unit has been built to the highest specifications, is separate from the hosts villa and set amongst 40 acres of rolling farmland and rural forest. You will be free to wonder and enjoy the landscaped gardens and private lawns or just sit back and enjoy the view of the western ranges from your own private deck.

The position of this property overlooks Mapua and Tasman Bay, with views over Richmond and the Richmond ranges on one side with the Western ranges to the other. You will be able to enjoy the complete quietness, only interrupted by native birdsong and watch the hawk's soar over the ridges below you, from which this property gets its name. There is only one accommodation unit available so you will not be sharing your stay with other guests.

All this is in a central location which enables you access to Mapua,(15min) Rabbit Island’s safe sandy beaches,(10min) Richmond,(15min) Nelson(25min) and the start of the Abel Tasman National Park,(40min). Nelson Lakes National Park, which boasts ski fields and good alpine trout fishing rivers, are less than an hour to the south.

The property is accessed by a private gravelled driveway off Redwood Valley Road. It is always a good idea to contact us prior to arrival, to arrange to have us meet you at this point or another suitable location. This will ensure you find us quickly and easily.

  • The property is lovely and very private

    The property is lovely and very private. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the township of Richmond that you relax, but close enough to get to local attractions fairly quickly.

    This is a beautiful house with generous and careful hosts. Mary and Paul were very friendly and did so much to help us without intruding. It's hard to think of anything better!!

    The house located on a high ridge in the countryside and is very comfortable and well-appointed. It has a bush setting that provides for a secluded getaway. The only drawback for some will be the long drive up from coastal attractions.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Many thanks for your response and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Hawk's Ridge is in a central location approximately 7min drive to the coastal highway which accesses tourist spots in both directions. We think that part of our attraction is that this diversion will get you to our secluded getaway as referred to in our discription. It is difficult to provide a secluded getaway which is next to the many and varied tourist attractions spread throughout the Nelson Region.
