Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Nelson, Nelson-Tasman Region, South Island
Aroha Cottage is situated halfway between Nelson and Abel Tasman National Park.

With a new kitchen and bathroom, cosy wood burner for winter, fabulous private garden, huge deck, quiet beach and free wifi, it is perfect for couples and overseas tourists.

The cottage is only 50 meters from Kina Beach, awake to the sound of waves and start the day down at the beach watching the sunrise over Tasman Bay.

We also have our local Tasman store for local wine, olive oil and basic supplies and New Zealand's Café of the year winner within walking distance.

Perfectly positioned for visiting both Nelson and The Abel Tasman National Park, famous for its great walks and stunning scenery.

Kina Beach is only a 25minute drive from Nelson airport.
