Mapua 41 South Holiday Accommodation
Ranked #6 of 20 Mapua B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 November 2016 via mobile

We stayed in the Orange Apartment (a couple + single) for 2 nights as part of a self-guided cycling tour. Our friends (another couple) stayed in the Blue Studio. The standard of finish in these fully self-contained apartments is second to none - quality appliances, tasteful furnishings, brilliant beds & linen, great storage (we've never seen so many coat hangers). Your hosts, John & Lynne, are passionate & knowledgeable about Mapua & the Moutere Hills area. The apartments are well-located with a supermarket & bakery almost across the road and Mapua Wharf (for wining & dining) only a short stroll away. We made great use of the outdoor patio (for pre-dinner drinks & nibblies) & there was lock-up storage for our bikes. The laundry was shared but each apartment is equipped with its own laundry basket & pegs. Really, there is nothing that John & Lynne have not thought of to make your stay easy & enjoyable. Highly recommended.

Tracy - i assume this is tracy , could be wrong. Was Adrienne using his GoPro when you did the cycle tour to the wires with the e-bikes? If so, would you ask him if he would share some of his footage with me - happy to edit it as well. That combination - regular bikes, e-bikes, and the composition of your group - cycling in that area would be great video footage to put up here on trip advisor as well as other sites. cheers

Mapua 41 South consists of 2 separate apartments - a smaller blue studio and the larger orange apartment. As there were 5 in our party we had both apartments. John met us on our arrival with the milk he had just bought for our fridges and was extremely helpful explaining everything we needed to know about the units and the area, including dinner suggestions. The units are beautifully decorated to a very high standard and EVERYTHING you could possibly need has been thought of, including well equipped kitchens, laundry complete with powder, bbq, and even mood lighting candles. The orange apartment has an oven and dishwasher while the blue studio has a small kitchen with microwave, fridge etc. Both have access to bbqs. An absolutely first class place to stay.

Thanks Tracy/Carol/Adrien/Greg/George. I'm glad you enjoyed the area - Abel Tasman , WIneries, Mapua Wharf and Village. The electric assist bikes were obviously a real hit - if one of you would consider contacting me I'd like to discuss how to just promote these for people who don't cycle much but who would like to give it a go. They sounded perfect for the Upper Moutere wine tour.
Please let me add that you were terrific guests as well. We couldn't aks for nicer people. Hope you come again - and take me up on the "super ride" option : ride to Kaiteriteri, boat to Totaranui, ride through to Pohara, in to Takaka for a pizza by car then drive home! With the e-bikes it should be a piece of cake!

cheers

My wife and I stayed in the Blue Studio recently and had a great time in Mapua, but a lot of it started with the accommodation and the help and service from John. We originally booked for 3 nights but rang a few days before and were able to come in a day early.
For couples the Blue Apartment is perfect. It has ready access to a washing machine and dryer and cloths line. There is also a BBQ and outdoor setting.

The location could not be easier. Pretty much across the road from the supermarket and bakery. A short and easy flat walk to the wharf where there is a multitude of great restaurants.

Thanks so much for staying with us Greg, and glad you were able to have enough time to sample the delights of Mapua - the Wharf , the wineries, Abel tasman . Hope you can come back some time.
Some recent guests from Brisbane rented e-bikes (electronic assist) to explore the wineries in upper Moutere and were thrilled with the experience. In the group of 5 there were two hardy cyclists who, like me, are "hill-masochists", but the other 3 wanted to be able to enjoy the scenery, the wineries, and cycling w/o a heap of physical labour. And they did, in spades! So if/when you visit again do try that e-bike cycling experience . Of course, if you stop at a winery on your cycle tour and get a little concerned about cycling back...happy to come and pick you and the bikes up!
cheers
John and Lynne

We travelled from Perth WAust to Mapua for our wedding and were lucky enough to choose Mapua41South Orange Apt as our accommodation.

From the first point of contact John was amazing, so helpful with suggestions and tops for our stay. During our stay John and Lynne went above and beyond to help us in anyway and also to help other family members staying in the area.

The apartment was perfect, it is warm, luxurious and decorated beautifully, it's relatively small but the high ceilings make the space feel triple the size. If only we could pick the whole place up and take it home with us.

Mapua is a great little town and we look forward to visiting again in the future. We highly recommend Mapua41South to anyone considering booking it and will be spreading the word in our part of the world about it.

Thanks again for a wonderful stay!

A delight to have you and your family stay with us Adele. What an experience - absolutely terrible weather....except for that little window for the wedding! Lynne and I watched in amazement at how well you were able to use the Orange Apartment for styling and dressing the wedding party . Young and old...it was a pleasure to watch you interact. Glad you found us - and Mapua - and the Jellyfish -on the Wharf.

Such a modern well appointed place. Great location.; excellent value for money. The host was most helpful with lots of great local knowledge. Stay a week, explore the region, this is a better bade for that than Nelson.
