    Jasmin2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing, would give it 6 stars if possible. From the time I made the booking, Jenny was very quick with her communication. Every morning was a delight waking up to water views across the coast line. The place was very tidy with nice indoor outdoor flow. The location was also very handy for us as it only a short commute either side to Nelson or Kaiteriteri

    Upper Moutere, Tasman, New Zealand

    This tiny room is suitable for single person who is backpacking and does not want to stay in a hostel dorm. It is a warm, sunny room with garden view. It has only a bed, desk and chair. Storage is under bed.
    Full use of all facilities in the house (kitchen, dinning, lounge and deck).
    Richmond has many of nature reserve with great walking and MTB tracks.
  • This is a great alternative to back-packing - much more personal and stress-free. Ola & Jeremy are very friendly and easy to deal with, nothing is ever a problem. Also the place itself is very handily located in Richmond - 5 mins to supermarkets etc. I would happily stay there again (and probably will!).

    Scott2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Ola and Jeremy were very kind as to let me extend my stay by an extra week as I couldn't find any other affordable place in Nelson over the first 2 weeks of the new year. When I arrived Jeremy came out to help me with my luggage. I loved their modern kitchen and was allowed to use it as and when I needed to cook. You can be sure the place is kept clean - the kitchen is wiped down almost daily and bathroom is cleaned every few days. Guests may also do laundry here with the hosts' washing and clothes are line-dried out back. The balcony lets you have alfresco dining and also sun your shoes if you need. They were generous with their tips on what to do and where to find work in the area. Be sure to follow the instructions for using the kitchen and bathroom. Bracken and Clover (the dogs) were very friendly and lovely to have around!

    Clare2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • I'm so glad that I have found a wonderful place and a great host in Richmond for my first month in New Zealand. I always felt that I'm in another home away from home. Love the two doggies Braken & Clover too. Thanks Ola & Jeremy for everything.

    Kanchana2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome!! Very clean and friendly! The dogs are really cute!

    Hiro2019-11-14T00:00:00Z

  • What a great place to stay! They’re an incredibly nice, well-traveled couple who are incredibly knowledgeable about New Zealand and the region. The town is small and a perfect place for a quaint overnight, or it could be used as a good base to explore the region in depth. As a solo traveler you couldn’t ask for a better situation, I’d highly recommend it!

    Patrick2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Brilliant location, wonderful hosts, and all the little things you'd want ie cooking/tea coffee/snacks - they're so thoughtful. Excellent value as well.

    Gareth2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Unbeatable location, sparkling clean and charming cottage with a very comfortable bed and everything you’d need for a short or long stay. We stayed 5 nights and really appreciated being able to BBQ outside or have wine or dinner at one of the restaurants on the wharf, which is literally a mere stone’s throw away from the cottage. Great value, too! We certainly hope to return soon. Thank you!

    Bj2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Absolute Gem! Lucy & Rod have crafted the cottage garden and location for maximum privacy. The interior is tastefully decorated, fully equipped and all appliances are new. The interior is very comfortable. Being able to walk to the wharf and local restaurants was an added bonus. Lucy suggested local sights we may like to see and our days just flew by. We were sad to leave and hope to return someday.

    Fern Tree Cottage's location is a winning one in the heart of Mapua village, within easy walking distance of the beach, wharf ,restaurants and all the amenities the village has to offer. PLEASE NOTE NO CLEANING FEE!!
    Our 100+ year old cottage retains its original charm, with most of the interior recently repainted and recarpeted.

  • Great stay in Mapua at Debbie’s place. Lovely spacious home a few minutes walk from the Mapua wharf. Very well equipped, great for cooking, lots of space and cute cottage and garden. Lots of lovely bars, restaurants and coffee shops at the waterside and great location re access to nelson and Abel Tasman. Debbie popped in to say hello and see if we needed anything, she was great with quick communication and lots of local tips. Thanks again for a great stay Debbie and 100%recommend staying here.

    Dayna2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • What a perfect house! Location is outstanding with an amazing bakery just around the corner, not to mention the Wharf which is full of restaurants and cafes. The cottage itself is very well equipped and had everything you need for a short or long stay. Debbie is absolutely lovely and we had a great chat! Responded very quickly to a couple of queries and gave us great recommendations where to eat locally. All in all one of the highlights of our 4 weeks in NZ.

    Jen2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • As soon as we stepped foot over the threshold of Debbie’s charming cottage it felt like home. The location, amenities, comfort and convenience of the cottage are all top notch. Travelling with small children I can’t express how wonderful (and rare) it was to have a bath! Much needed after over a week of mistrusted showers and children subsequently washed largely with wet wipes. Debbie was a wonderful host and popped over to say hello on our first evening which was much appreciated. She advised us to visit the Mapua Wharf area and jettison, which we did. A blissful evening spent eating the freshest fish and chips and swimming in the sheltered bay while the sun lit up the distant mountains. I honestly couldn’t fault it. Wish we could have stayed longer.

    Anna2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Loved it! A great place to stay in the centre of Mapua. Charming cottage which is much bigger than you think it will be. Well equipped and cosy. Will definitely be back. We didn't want to leave.

It is outside of town, but if you like quiet places, this is just perfect. Bridget is super friendly and will help you if needed, I loved my time there!

    A country property just off the highway leading to the national park. This is a welcoming, friendly environment where guests would be made to feel at home. A petanque court sets the scene for a relaxed evening with a BBQ and wine on the deck. Rabbit island beach 5 minutes away as are great wineries.
  • Ian and Sandra's house is peaceful and stylish with an extremely soft lush bed. We knew they would be great hosts even before arriving as they were quick with replies and we enjoyed easy communications prior to our arrival. Nice and homely vibe especially over shared breakfast.

    Nadia2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great accommodation, great people. Always had a good tips for trips and what to do! Definitely recommendable!

    Julian2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • A gorgeous house, with lot of space. Sandra and Ian were amazing at the little touches for our 2 year old, and when we arrived a paddling pool, toys, books and games were all ready to go. Having our own bathroom was great, and the area of the house we were in was so private and quiet. The outside area is gorgeous with a nice area to sit and relax as the sun goes down. They were absolutely wonderful hosts, very friendly, and went above and beyond to make our stay incredible. We highly recommend their place, and will definitely be back :-)

    Karlene2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Super clean, great location and friendly Host. Probably the best sleep i’ve had during three weeks of travel in NZ! Bed was comfortable and had a free breakfast and coffee outside the relaxing patio. Wouldn’t think twice about staying here again

Windows are double glazed making the apartment lovely and warm. We didn’t have to use the heat pump, even though the nights were a bit chilly.

Henrietta and David are very friendly and helpful - couldn’t have asked for nicer hosts. Definitely worth staying here.

    Julie2019-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely loved our stay here. We used this as a place to stay on our way from Picton as we headed toward the west coast and wish we could have stayed longer. Easy access, great views, immaculate home, and very nice finishing touches throughout the home, including a fully stocked kitchen. Privacy was also great. We especially enjoyed the view from the deck, watching the tide come and go, birds in the trees and water, and a beautiful sunrise. Fantastic stay and we’d love to stay again.

    Derek2019-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for something that offers tranquilityand style at an affordable rate this is it close to both Mapua, Nelson and Abel Tasman reserve. This is delightful.

Upon our arrival, we found a bin of breakfast goodies which was a very nice touch. Henriette was very easy to coordinate with and she was a lovely host - taking the time to greet us in person. Best AirBnB stay of our 2.5 week trip to NZ! Highly recommend this spot.

    Mapua, New Zealand

    Ruby Bay is a jewel of the Tasman region. A well kept secret known only to a few. The beach is most often deserted and the lack of crowds and traffic make it a fabulous location to base your adventures from. Situated on The Great Taste Trail only 300m from the beach.

    Our place is 20mins from the airport, 5mins to Mapua with art galleries, restaurants, dining and the wharf. 14mins from Richmond or Motueka and 35mins to Kairteriteri with another 10mins to Marahau, the gateway to the Abel Tasman Park. With a choice of using the water taxis, kayaks or for the more adventurous abseiling down canyons is also an option. You’ll love our quiet rural location, great to relax after an adventure full day. Our place is good for couples, solo and business travellers.
    We have built this new home to be welcoming adding character by using elm and oak timbers and by recycling doors, light fittings and interesting bits that we have collected over the years. It also houses my ever increasing art collection.
    Great place to use as a base with the Moutere, Kaiteriteri, Rabbit island and many bush walks close by. Guests can do day trips to Golden Bay and the Abel Tasman track. Very close to the Playhouse for its many events and able to offer a drop off and pick up service for music events, local wedding etc.
  • Will & Maria’s home and garden is amazing with wonderful and interesting artwork everywhere. A very talented lady. They made our stay extra special taking time to show us around and telling us what they had done. The accommodation is very comfortable and the breakfast with homemade rolls and jams is excellent. Would highly recommend.

Everything was clean and perfectly organized. Everything one wants for a breakfast was there, from coffee, tea to toast and cereal. Kath and Jamie are absolute sweethearts and made us feel welcome at an any time and had amazing tipps for activities. We couldn’t have wished for a better AirBnB experience. 10 out of 5 stars.

    Christian2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We couldn't help but needed to go back to this lovely place once again. Our second stay was even better than the first one; Jamie took my husband to a fishing trip he will for sure never forget and Kath was so kind and caring for myself and our little 8 months old daughter. We felt like part of the family in their beautiful home and if we are ever close to this region again we will for sure take another detour just to meet them again. A stay at Bella Vista Tasman Bay is a little holiday within your holiday.

    Natalie2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, tranquil place. Stunning location, fantastic views. This is so much more than just a bed for the night, there are wonderful little touches, like fresh flowers, everything you need for breakfast, lovely towels and linens. Your hosts Kath and Jamie are so friendly, kind and happy to help with anything you might need. I highly recommend this place. Also it’s amazingly good value for what you get.

    Eadaoin2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful little spot looking out over the bay. The space was well furnished with lovely details to make our stay very special. Can’t beat a bath with a view either! Welcoming hosts with a smoochy dog. Very helpful with local dining options and activities. Will definitely stay again next time we are back in Nelson. Really appreciated the chocolate and fresh cherries!

    Cameron2020-02-09T00:00:00Z

    The Bach is located on Best Island a small island located 10 minutes drive from Richmond Centre. The Bach faces the local estuary and is a stone throw from the water. A fantastic getaway with kayaking, and short strolls a must. Table and chairs are located at the Jetty making it a fantastic place for outdoor dining. Separate to the main house, you will be as close as you choose to your hosts.
    The Bach is an open plan area with a separate bathroom and bedroom. An outdoor area secludes from the Main house and provides privacy for that romantic dinner.
    Best Island is a lovely community with approximately 30 properties.
  • Great host and great place. Highly recommended!

    Martina2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely space with a great view over the estuary. Really enjoyed our stay here, and watching all the birds on the marsh when the tide came in. Comfy bed, nice big living space, lovely toiletries and the fridge was well stocked with essentials (and some non-essentials too!) which was lovely to arrive to. Samantha was super friendly and welcoming. Would happily recommend to others.

    Kate2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Sam’s place is large, clean, and comfortable. It is close enough to Abel Tasman to make a day trip and back. It is also about 20 mins from Nelson. Sam went out of her way to make us feel welcome. We will definitely stay here again!

    Tyler2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is a gem. Samantha is a wonderful host, very welcoming, happy to suggest places to visit or help in anyway she can and yet leaves you to have your own space. The place is welcoming with excellent touches, Like fresh herbs on the windowsill, a small vegie garden for your use as well as olive oil, peanut butter etc in the cupboards, and a bowl of apples plus wine and beer left for us. This is one of the best places we have stayed at a very good price. We would happily recommend this to anyone. Our advise would be if your going to the nelson regain book Samantha's.

    Diane2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • you are in for a treat... Sam's place on Best Island is such a "welcome home" for weary travellers, especially for families with kids. Situated on an inland harbour, our 5yr old spent supervision-free hours playing on the 'flats' building traps, riding bikes, bouncing on the trampoline, playing with Sam's little boy (she was super welcoming for the kids to roam in and out of both houses.... SUCH a gift for busy parents). We ate dinner on our laps at the end of the pier dangling legs over the side and watching the tide come in, we walked on the marshy flats with morning-coffee and I even did work zoom calls sitting outside watching the sun rise and feeling the expanse of the harbour in front of me. The cottage is immaculate, filled with flowers and Sam has thought of anything and everything you might need to make your trip easier. Picnic basket, wine, food in the fridge, fire pit outside, washer dryer with laundry powder (as a traveling family the ability to stay home, drink a glass of wine and put a load of grubby kid washing on was like GOLD after days on the road). Super-lovely, super-accommodating and felt like family. Grateful!!

    Rachel2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • This is a really nice place to stay. Great location and lovely walk to the pier. Samantha was a great host. Everything was clean and tidy including stuff in the fridge flowers in the vase and even a bottle of wine. It made one feel very welcome. Highly recommended.

    Within 7 minutes walking distance of the Mapua wharf, the Bach is a great place to relax and unwind. There is one bedroom with a fabulous king-sized bed, a new bathroom, and an outdoor kitchen for al fresco cooking and dining on the verandah. You can do as much or as little as you like in this beautiful part of NZ. We are happy to help with recommendations, or leave you to it...We're sure you'll enjoy your stay on Iwa St.
    The Bach is a place to simply relax and unwind; newly renovated in a Scandi minimalist style, you can relax with a book, take a nap, or walk down to the beach or shops and bars of Mapua. Washing machine and dryer are available on request.
    Mapua is a delightful seaside village with lots going on. The wharf precinct is bustling with bars, cafes, galleries and shops. There's nothing better than catching up with friends, listening to live music, and watching the sunset down at the wharf.
  • Great stay, very comfortable and clean accommodation, beautiful village.

    Eunice2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing little place outside Nelson. I stayed one night and had a great time using the outside kitchen, great shower and enjoying the super quiet neighborhood. Definitely give this place a shot.

  • Communication with Zoe was fantastic and we really liked the accommodation. Unfortunately we overlooked the lack of WiFi.

    Tim2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great little stay. Perfect for a night before we did Abel Tasman walk. Cooking outdoors was fun. The bed was comfortable and it was ideal for a short stay

    DUE TO THE COVID-19 VIRUS I AM NOT CURRENTLY OPERATING SHORT TERM ACCOMMODATION. TUMBLEWEED DOWNS IS NOW OFFERING LONGER TERM ACCOMMODATION. Unwind from the stresses of travelling at this peaceful rural retreat overlooking the sparkling waters of Tasman Bay away from the noise and hustle of the city. This four acre farmlet has alpacas, ducks and chickens; beautiful gardens, ponds, native bush and birds. Have a soak in the wood-fired hot tub overlooking the bay, or stargaze at night.
    This comfortable farmhouse style home with views over bush and water has a wrap around verandah and is situated in a tranquil, park like setting with plenty of areas to relax inside and out. The home has two guest rooms (this one sleeps three and other sleeps two) with a shared bathroom between them, and guests have a separate lounge area. The hot tub is an amazing treat after a day exploring the Abel Tasman National Park. Home cooked farm style dinner and/or breakfast available by prior arrangement. Dinner (main and desert) $35 per person; cooked breakfast (bacon, hash browns, tomatoes, fresh free range eggs, or omelette) $20; continental (cereal and toast) $10.
    Mapua coastal village is five minutes drive away and has range of shops, galleries, restaurants, bars, cafés and takeaways. The village is situated by the beautiful Waimea Estuary, just a short drive from Nelson, Richmond and Motueka.
  • Dawn's place is truly fantastic! Dawn herself is wonderfully accommodating. The house is beautiful, both inside and out. She has an immaculate garden, and the inside is both stylish and cozy. The views are really as great as the pictures. We opted for her cooked breakfast. I eat a lot, but she made more than I could finish, and it was all delicious. You won't find a better value for money either. I will definitely stay here again if I'm ever in the area!

  • The stay with Dawn will never be forgotten. She was a great host. I recommend anyone staying has the breakfast and evening meal, both we’re delicious. The view over looking the valley to the coast is iddilic and a great spot to enjoy some bubbly.

    Jonathan2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Our favorite airbnb in NZ so far! Definitely for the animal lovers out there as Dawn’s cats are the absolute friendliest - plus chickens, ducks, alpacas, etc.

    Jessie2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • If you are driving and visiting SAU staying at Dawn’s is a most. A beautiful welcoming home, with an amazing view. And a super nice host:) Dawn is awesome and lovely. The home is supper clean. Highly recommend it.

    Clayton2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Dawns place was incredible! Perfect location and view. Dawn cooked us a lovely dinner, which we ate outside. Then used the hot tub after. Everything was clean and tidy. Great to see all the animals, if you love rural retreats, this is your place. Would definitely recommend staying!

    Georgia2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • No words can describe the place and hospitality, best to check it out yourself! 😊 You wont regret it

    Jacinta2020-02-20T00:00:00Z

  • Mapua is an absolutely charming spot and Hillary’s guest area is 2 minutes from the wharf and some amazing restaurants and bars - we were spoilt for choice! The guest room was perfect for us, we had everything we needed and the bed was very comfortable. We would definitely love to come back and stay again!

    Felicity2019-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • The room is quite private located in the back of a (large) toolshed in the corner of a treed yard. The room is small but comfortable, with nice linens and a good bed. The bathroom is a short walk outside and I am unclear if it was shared or not, but we didn't see anyone else using it. Great location very short walk to restaurants. Would recommend for someone looking for something basic and budget friendly.

    Erica2019-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • I had a lovely stay at Hillary’s, the space was clean, comfortable, and very stylish. I would recommend it :)

    Martin2019-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Hillary’s place is lovely and the family is really friendly and open. We had a great stay and the area is amazing for walking around. We could barrow the barbecue and they where very helpful with everything. Highly recommend.

    Jeff2019-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • This is the third time we've stayed in the area. This is the BEST location and perfect for a single/couple to stay. Just a hop, skip, and a jump to cafes, shops, pubs, and restaurants. Compfy bed, awesome water pressure in the shower, and friendly hosts. Would recommend for anyone staying in the area in need of a clean room and Mapua experience.

  • Best of New Zealand! We loved the place, the area, and John and Tina became our favorite hosts of the twenty or so airbnb experiences we have had around the world. Easy access here either to Abel Tasman or Nelson as long as you have a car. Great restaurants close at hand in Mapua. And such hospitality from both John and Tina themselves. A delightful experience in every way!

    Jeff2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • What an incredible location, the sea was right at the doorstep. John and Tina were wonderfully welcoming hosts with plenty of tips for things to see and do.

    Paula2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place right on the ocean. Easy access to everything in the area. Tina and John are great hosts and would highly recommend their place.

    Michelle2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place was fantastic. Tina and John were excellent hosts. We arrived late and they still greeted us and carried our bags in for us. The guest house is very close to the water and they provided bikes, helmets, and locks so we could take the bikes into town and explore. The location is close to breweries and national parks! 10/10!

    Cody2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Perched perfectly on the beach front with a view that takes your breath away. Loved the stay with so much help from Tina and John on tourism maps and general information terrific hosts. Everything you need in kitchen and cosy setting. Would be back on a heartbeat. Lovely time at Ruby bay and surrounding district. Thank you 👍🏽
