“Jenny and Hamish’s place was one of our favorite Airbnb stays. It’s close to the shops and restaurants in Nelson, Richmond, and Mapua, yet wonderfully serene with a lovely view from the backyard just like the pictures. The bed was comfortable, bathroom large with a spacious shower (and great water pressure!), laundry facilities provided, and a wonderful patio and pool to enjoy. Jenny was out of town, but Hamish was a wonderful host, along with the sweet dogs, with several good recommendations in the area. We hope to be back someday!”

Welcome to Oaks Cottage, a delightful self contained unit set in 3.5 acres of beautiful gardens and paddocks, in the heart of the thriving rural idyll of the Moutere valley.

It is not only ideally located to explore all the 'Top of the South' has to offer including its wonderful golden beaches, but offers the opportunity to relax and unwind within a beautiful rural setting.
“The cottage is nicely decorated and warm since there are heaters and a log fire. The kitchen is well equipped and we were provided with pasta, rice, oats, quite a variety of spices and teas. Jac welcomed us with a bottle of wine, fresh eggs, feijoas, honey and home made quince jelly (all available at our arrival). The bed linen is of good quality too. Jac was very helpful and gave us tips on what to visit too. We had a lovely time visiting the area. You need to walk a few meters from the cottage only to enjoy the beautiful scenery. We made friends with the house's pig and chickens. It was a wonderful stay. Thank you Jac.”
