Our house was originally a wharf labourers cottage, a few steps from Mapua wharf, which has grown into quite a destination, with visitors from all over the world. We developed an art and ceramics studio which we operated for 20 years. We later turned the studio into an apartment , and now very much enjoy the business of making our guests welcome and ensuring their stay is a good one
Mapua wharf is 2 minutes walk from us, restaurants, bars, cafes etc. Its a great area for biking, visiting vineyards, beach walks.We are also a good base for visiting Abel Tasman National Park, which is about 1 hours drive from us
