We had a great time in Mapua. The accommodation we had [ 4 nights in mid February] was in the Orange Apartment and it was so beautiful and full of quality products we couldn’t fault. We loved being so close to the Wharf with all the wonderful restaurants and bars and shops. We hired a bike from the wharf for the day, and sailed across to Rabbit Island and biked to Nelson on the lovely coastal parthway, stunning. We fished and Lesley caught a lovely snapper. We did lots of lovely walks and had we had enough time we could have played tennis at the courts nearby. We visited some lovely wineries and have decided next year we need to stay longer. We will return as it is our kind or paradise.
Leslie and John just posted this comment in another part of or website. I’ve moved it here to make it easier to find and read.
