'te wai tahi' maori for waters edge

House - Entire home/apt · C Iwa St, Mapua, Tasman 7005, New Zealand

The Space

I welcome you in my three bedroom waterfront house. The main bedroom has a comfortable queensize bed with luxurious cotton sheets. Bedroom two has a single bed. The third bedroom has two single beds. All beds are high quality.

As the name indicates 'te wai tahi' is in unison with the waters of the waimea estuary and Tasman Bay.

It is close to the hub of the Mapua seaside village, yet far enough away to have tranquility. There is off street parking. WiFi in house, shops, cafes and restaurants within easy walking distance.

Nelson and Abel Tasman Park are 35 minutes away. You are surrounded by wineries and art galleries.

Swimming is directly in front of the house, you just walk off the deck and away you go. Kayaks come with the house and you can enjoy moving in and out with the tides. This is special to the 'Te Wai Tahi' real New Zealand experience.

Bird watching is spectacular with binoculars provided.

The house is on the great taste trail and cyclist friendly.

    Response from Marianne:

    Thank you Miranda, and may the weather gods be with you.

  • What a gem this place is, so glad we found it. The house is really at the water's edge The view from the house is wonderful. Marianne was a lovely hostess, very entertaining, accommodating and helpful, she made us feel very welcome. This is a lovely clean, comfortable home. Mapua and surrounding area is really worth a look as is Rabbit Island. If you enoy spending time looking in art gallleries there are lots here. The pictures do not do this place justice. Marianne very kindly loaned us her Kayaks.
    I would recommend this place and look forward to staying here again if I ever come back this way.

  • Marianne and her place were both wonderful. Mapua is a gem of a town and her place is in a great location on the water and a close walk to the wharf and center of town. Highly recommended!

I am a 62 years young woman enjoying life in Nelson. I like to share this special place with my guests and share the enjoyment of living by the sea. I am an ex-physiotherapist and now qigong teacher, running classes from my home. I sing in a world music choir and love live concerts. I have walked many of the NZ tracks and will be able to help you on your way. I prefer to live in countries to experience them rather than just visiting as a tourist. I am looking forward to hearing about your life and travel experiences, but will also respect your privacy.
