“Amazing for visit of Nelson & Abel Tasman”
Reviewed 12 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

My family of 5 (3 adult children) stayed in the two apartments. They were amazing clean, fresh, all the amenities you would need and best of all, greatly located between the Nelson / Marlborough region and the Abel Tasman National Park. John was super helpful both before and after the trip! A great find and a recommendation for all

“Impeccable luxury in the perfect location.”
Reviewed 30 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

These new, architecturally designed units are furnished to the highest standards. John is the most welcoming host and the units have everything you would need for an enjoyable stay in the beautiful Abel Tasman region. The beds are really comfortable with high quality linen. We stayed in both units and they are both lovely. The smaller unit has a lovely sunny terrace where we relaxed, read books and cooked on the awesome bbq. The other is larger with a fully equipped kitchen. Both had excellent wifi. The units are within a stone's throw of the local mini-supermarket and playground and 2 minutes walk to the lovely wharf with its shops and restaurants and of course the ferry on the rail trail.

“Perfect holiday home”
Reviewed 8 October 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I stayed at John and Lynne’s place for a week in July and had a fantastic time. The two units are separate from the main house and they are both spacious and luxurious, and there is everything you need in both of them. I stayed in the larger unit which has a large kitchen and adjacent lounge that opens up to a large porch. The bathroom is nice and has a large shower area, and the bedroom is large with a comfortable bed. It is very nicely laid out and perfect for a holiday, and John and Lynne are very kind and helpful – and the floor heating is great in winter time, very comfortable. The house is only a short walk from the lovely wharf in Mapua where you find small art stores, restaurants and a micro brewery. There are great bicycle trails and you can rent bikes from a shop at the wharf. I have traveled a good deal around the South Island and this is easily one of the best spots to stay in my mind. The area is surrounded by mountains and provide cover so the weather is usually good and there are many very nice wineries. You can go hiking and skiing in the nearby Southern Alps, Abel Tasman Park is very close by where you can take water taxi or kayak between the stunning beaches, and you can enjoy city life in Nelson. Perfect stuff for a holiday and I will definitely be back.

“The best accommodation we've ever stayed in!”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had a fantastic holiday in this new, luxury accomodation. It is very spacious and has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Sun, sea, great food & coffee - Mapua has it all. Lynne & John were perfect hosts - friendly & informative about the area and cycle tracks. This would have to be the best accomodation we've stayed in (in New Zealand & around the world)! We are booked to come back with friends!
