Holiday accommodation in the heart of Mapua Village & the Great Taste Cycle Trail. Stylish, modern units perfect for family holidays, romantic retreats or weekend escapes. Under-floor heating for winter warmth. Only 2-5 min walk to shops/cafes. Close to Nelson, Ruby Bay and the Abel Tasman National Park.

The space

Our two new architecturally designed units offer stylish and modern, boutique accommodation with indoor-outdoor flow onto expansive decking.

The Orange Apartment has a separate bedroom and is fully self-contained. It offers stylish and comfortable boutique accommodation for you to relax and unwind in. With 72sqm of interior space, the apartment has an open plan kitchen and living space and a separate spacious bedroom. The open plan living area opens onto a private patio and looks out over an expansive lawn (soon to be landscaped!). The Orange Apartment offers you all the comforts of home without the responsibilities.

Perfect for a longer-term stay, the Orange Apartment provides comfort and space. While ideal for a couple we can offer additional sleeping arrangements for 2 extra people. This unit has a super king bed as the default setting. A king single and single trundler bed can be added for additional guests if needed. Although the trundler bed can be accommodated in the bedroom, the king single bed would be in the living area. Please note: Our ability to accomodate additional guests in this unit is dependent the total number of guests booked in both units at the time. We have a limit of 6 people at any one time in the complex so that everyone has enough space and privacy.

Attached by a breezeway to the Blue Studio, the two units can be booked together to offer proximity for those ‘together’ times with extended family or friends, but also offer individual privacy for ‘time-out’.

A 5 star rating on air BnB doesn't match this absolutely stunning experience. On a scale like this John and Lynne deserve an extension to at least 7 stars. Guys, hurry up to book that apartment immediately you won't get a better deal! The place is brand new and equipped only with high quality furniture, state of the art electronics and a perfect BBQ spot. There was not a thing missing and everything incl. John's huge video selection, local recommendations, special discounts for restaurants etc. was explained in detail in a lovely binder. In my opinion, those additional features show the attention to detail and friendliness which represents the host's attitude. Obviously, the apartment was absolutely tidy and a perfect place to call home. It was a pity that we only booked 3 nights there. Personally I loved the chats with John and had a great time staying at his place. Mapua is a small but really lovely town with a Wharf area including cafes, restaurants & shops. So you can simply walk for a drink or an evening meal.

Response from John & Lynne:
Thanks Sebastian. ...great to meet you, michelle, stefan (sp?) and regina. Next time....more boutique breweries and local wineries... ok?...I'll be your designated driver!? Mahana and Neudorf in particular. When you return to Germany to Michelle's parent's : hope you have a fantastic family wedding and let us know if you need any help sourcing local wines/beers. I'm still amazed at how 4 Germans, 2 studying in OZ, who have never heard of Mapua managed to find us, choose us...and have their decision vindicated. Air BnB and the web rules ok!

Lieu très agréable, avec tout ce qu'il faut pour passer un très beau séjour. John nous a reçu avec admirable accueil. Ils avaient même prévu des Vouchers pour nous faire bénéficier d'offres de proximité (restaurant, winery ...) L'appartement est a coté de la maison de John et Lynne. il est spacieux et très agréable

Thank you for being great guests . You and your family definitely made the most of your time in the Mapua/Tasman area. I asked my sister in Canada to translate your review . Let me know if she got it right! "A really great place, everything one needs for an enjoyable stay. John was more than welcoming. He even provided us with coupons so we could benefit from local discounts (restaurants, winery tour, etc). The apartment is just beside John and Lynne's home. Its really nice and roomy."

John and I moved to Mapua in February 2015. We fell ‘in love’ with the Village during a family camping holiday in 2012 and decided to build a home here. It’s been an adventure and we have met some great people – it’s such a friendly place. John is semi-retired and a keen cyclist, gardener and DIYer. I’m not such a keen cyclist or gardener but I try. Now that we live on the Great Taste Cycle Trail cycling has more appeal. We have lots of landscaping to do around our new homes and I’m sure that will keep us busy for a while. We are hoping that by next year we will have an outdoor fire pit and pizza oven as a social/common area for our guests and ourselves. I’m looking forward to enjoying pizza and conversation with our guests but I suspect before then I’ll be doing some digging!
