Location

Delaware Bay Nelson, Nelson, New Zealand

A wonderful estuary to explore either at low tide when you can walk over to deserted beach or around the bush clad peninsula. Cable Bay is 5 minutes drive where there is fabulous summer swimming and a cafe. Cable Bay Kayaks will arrange kayak trips in the estuary for the less adventurous and around Peppin Island which is very scenic and rivals the Abel Tasman for experiences. Cable Bay Adventure park is also close by for mountain biking (ebikes), walking, horse trekking and quad bikes and also has a cafe. This is a unique part of North Nelson mainly undiscovered.

I am definitely an outdoors person - love hiking or 'tramping' as we call it in NZ. And love my vege garden. I've started playing the cello and love all sorts of music. Reading is another love. I love sharing this beautiful part of New Zealand/Aotearoa with others - the native bush and birds and the coastal scenery is spectacular. Peace and quiet is a real feature of my life and this place. Intrepid travel in off the beaten track is my favourite way of experiencing new places. I love to meet local people and staying as a guest in Air BnB homes is such a great way to do this!

During your stay
I stay in a separate cottage and am often available as a walking guide or with any information you might need about the area. Cable Bay walkway is a 'must do' activity if you like walking that is. Am very happy to meet you at other end of walkway and drive you back to your car!
