About our home

What a great spot to create some amazing family memories!

Our original beach batch is a home away from home, renovated throughout, with sea views from the top story with a deck to lap up the sun and a enjoy a cold beverage in the arvo or morning coffee from. The large fenced in private back section and patio is a great spot to BBQ or allow the kids to play safely. Situated just 2 houses back from the stunning beach on a quiet cul de sac.

Our house layout is spread over two stories:

Lounge - wide screen smart TV with Netflix, huge corner couch and a smaller couch that folds out to a slat queen bed
Sunroom - a chest filled with board games and puzzles, there is also a large desk should you need to work or have the urge to do a puzzle!
Bathroom - Toilet, Shower, and bath
Master Bedroom - Super King Bed
Other Bedroom - Queen bed or Single bed + cot (just let us know what you prefer)

Kitchen/dining - New modern kitchen with all new appliances, breakfast bar, bar and dining table
1st bedroom - 1 or 2 King Single beds
2nd bedroom - 2 King Single beds (these can be pushed together to form a large bed as they are the same height)
Bathroom - Toilet, large shower
Laundry - Front Loader and Heatpump Dryer

The beach is approx 20 meters from our driveway... you can hear the waves and smell the fresh salt air!

Our resident cat Coco comes with the house - he is low maintenance spending his day lazing in the sun, he will need a bit of food dished out each morning and maybe a pat!

Where is it?


What is around us?

Well stocked foursquare (supermarket), bakery, restaurants, cafes, pubs, fish and chip shops are 2 minutes drive or about a 10-20-minute walk/cycle along the beach or cycleway to Mapua township.

Only a 10-minute drive to Motueka and about 30 minutes to the world famous Kaiteriteri Beach and Abel Tasman National Park and most important in less than 10 minutes drive or cycle you will be amongst some of the best boutique wineries in NZ!

Tasman's Great Cycle Trail literally goes past our door - you can bring your own bike, use ours or hire some from down at the Mapua Wharf. From the wharf, the ferry leaves to Rabbit Island, riddled with Bike trails, BBQ areas and a large sandy beach - a great day out! If hiking is your thing, Mt Arthur and Nelson Lakes are an easy drive to make a good day hike.
