The Apple Pickers' Cottages are three very comfortable and stylish self-contained waterfront cottages situated on the shore of the beautiful Waimea Inlet, near Mapua village.

Located in the heart of the Tasman region, surrounded by the vineyards of Nelson's wine country, the cottages are an ideal base for day trips around the Nelson region to the Abel Tasman, Kahurangi and Nelson Lakes National Parks.

The cottages are part of our 5 acre organic property, a mix of fruit trees, gardens, and regenerating native New Zealand bush which stretches around the estuary shore. Nelson's Waimea Inlet is famous for its wading and migratory birds: pied stilts, oyster-catchers, bar tailed godwits, herons, royal spoonbills are all regular visitors on the shoreline.

The cottages are sunny, warm, private and tranquil, and perfectly equipped for a relaxing holiday with hammocks, good books, board games, barbecue, brazier, kayaks, outdoor bathtub, stand up paddle boards and endless views to gaze at.

Whilst secluded and private, the cottage accommodation is also extremely accessible to Nelson; just 20 minutes (24km) from Nelson airport and less than 5 minutes to the coastal village of Mapua. Mapua's thriving wharf area has cafés and restaurants as well as galleries representing local artists.

  • We've stayed in Miro Cottage twice before. I love it, love the location, love the wonderful herbs growing in the garden, love the Kayaks, love the general atmosphere. The cottages are very private, clean, well equipped and tastefully decorated. 5

  • Miro cottage is right by the water at the end of a private drive on a farm property. This ex: apple pickers cottage is retro chic at its best. All mod cons and wonderfully furnished in 50's style. We will certainly look forward to staying again. 5

  • The cottage is set in an old apple orchard on the edge of an estuary with sweeping views of the mountains. It's simple, stylish and comfortable. The host was friendly and very helpful without ever intruding on our private enjoyment of the cottage. The birds in the esuary, in the trees and wandering the lawn were an added treat. 5
