Holiday accommodation, Mapua, Nelson, New Zealand.

The Apple Pickers' Cottages are three holiday homes on the shore of the beautiful tidal Waimea Inlet, near Mapua village.

Our organic property is a mix of fruit trees,  gardens, and regenerating native  bush which stretches around the estuary shore.

The cottages are well equipped for a relaxing holiday with hammocks, good books, board games, barbeques, braziers and endless views to gaze at. On a full tide, you can explore the quiet estuary by kayak or paddle board. 

The cottages are secluded and private, and also extremely accessible; just 20 minutes (24km) from Nelson airport and less than 5 minutes to the coastal village of Mapua. The thriving wharf area has cafés, restaurants and galleries representing local artists.
