Welcome to Mapua41South holiday accommodation in Nelson Tasman, New Zealand.
We are located at 55 Aranui Road in the heart of Mapua, a friendly seaside village with all the facilities you need for a relaxing holiday , at the very center of the Great Taste Cycle Trail halfway between Nelson and Kaiteriteri (click here for map)
Our two new architecturally designed units offer stylish and modern, boutique accommodation with indoor-outdoor flow onto expansive decking. Both the Orange Apartment (a one bedroom, self-contained apartment) and the Blue Studio (a fully equipped studio unit) offer a warm and comfortable base for your next family holiday, romantic retreat, or a weekend escape. Attached by a breezeway, the two units can be booked as the Full House to offer proximity for those ‘together’ times with extended family or friends, but also offer individual privacy for ‘time-out’.
Your accommodation is less than a 2-minute walk from great coffee and pastries at the Naked Bun, the library, supermarket, gift shop, pharmacy, hair dresser and the newly opened Sprig and Fern Tavern. It’s only a 5-minute walk to the social hub of Mapua Wharf and all the delights it offers – wine, coffee, food, art, gifts, antiques, hats and craft beer. Relax on the Wharf in one of the award winning cafes (Jellyfish Cafe & Bar, The AppleShed, Golden Bear Brewing Company) or explore the many attractions in the area.
The Tasman and Nelson regions offer lots to see and do including cycling, swimming, surfing, kayaking, fishing, walking the beach, wine tasting, art and craft galleries and a choice of golf courses! A 35-minute drive to Nelson City in one direction or the entrance to Abel Tasman Park in the other, Mapua is an ideal destination to base your Tasman Bay or Golden Bay holiday experience from. Mapua is surrounded by wineries and art galleries and is at the center of the Great Taste Cycle Trail. From the Village you can take your bike on the Mapua Ferry to explore Rabbit Island or cycle up into the Moutere Hills or north to Ruby Bay. The Great Taste Cycle Trail continues on to Motueka, and Kaiteriteri, from where the golden sand beaches and native bush of the Abel Tasman National Park beckon. Kina Beach Golf Course is only 11.4km away, welcomes casual players and sightseers, and offers golfers and visitors unparalleled, spectacular view across the Bays.
After your day exploring Mapua or its surroundings, take time to relax and enjoy the comfort of your private deck – equipped with a gas barbeque and outdoor furniture. While there are plenty of great cafes within walking distance, you may choose to have a quiet night in – making use of the fully equipped self-catering options provided in either unit. Whatever your choice, you’ll enjoy a comfortable night’s sleep on our super comfy Queen size beds with crisp white linen, fluffy duvets and ample pillows.
