About our home

Fantastic separate apartment, sleeps two with comfortable queen bed. Refrigerator, toaster, kettle, microwave. Full kitchen, washing machine etc available in main house. We have a gorgeous garden, fantastic sea view, in a peaceful setting within 20mins drive of Nelson city, and 45mins drive to the Abel Tasman National Park. We have one very friendly cat that we ask guest not to encourage into the apartment in case of future guests allergies. W have fresh eggs from our own chickens and two cute rabbits. Due to path and steps leading to the apartment unfortunately our place is not suitable for people with physical disabilities.


More about us

  1. We are a New Zealand couple approaching mid 50's with three adult daughters - one lives locally, one lives in Brisbane, one lives in Germany. We travelled extensively in our 20's, and again in our early 50's. Now with a daughter married in Germany we have every excuse to keep travelling!

  2. Mike is a self employed landscaper, Kaye works in administration for a local building company.

  3. We love gardening, animals, sports, hand crafts, cooking and travel. We particularly love meeting people and ";giving like a local" rather than as tourists.
    We have a large garden, chickens, rabbits, and a cat that can all be taken care of by a neighbour. We're happy to care for your pets
