Kotuku House is the best of estuary living. Water at your doorstep, centrally located between Nelson Airport & the stunning Abel Tasman National Park. A quiet comfortable Kiwi holiday bach, perfect to relax all day. We have a few kayaks, just a stroll down to the boat ramp & jetty where you can swim or just take your wine, sit on the bench seats & watch the eb and flow of the estuary. Enjoy the stunning bird life, or just watch the sun set over the mountains. Next to the cycle new way.
