Karaka, Miro and Rata are three beautifully restored ex-apple pickers' cottages on the shore of the Waimea Inlet, near Mapua village.
Our organic property on the Matahua Peninsula is a mix of fruit trees, gardens, and regenerating native New Zealand bush which stretches around the estuary shore.
We are located halfway between Nelson City and the Abel Tasman National Park. (half an hour's drive either way), making the cottages an ideal base for day trips around the region.
Each cottage is secluded and private, with their own decks and garden areas overlooking the Inlet.
We are just 20 minutes (24km) from Nelson airport and less than 5 minutes to the coastal village of Mapua. Mapua’s thriving wharf area has cafés, a brewery, restaurants and galleries.
