A wonderful spot and well-run. Lots of extras included that you normally have to pay extra for! This is a small family run business that provides more than the usual. Heated salt water pool - excellent. See the stars from the hot tub late at night before turning in to sleep soundly in the quiet location. Wake up to bird...

Ideal place to spend a night during a roadtrip trough New-Zealand. Recommend arrival before sunset, chalets situated off-road. Owners can be reached through intercom, small problem immediately solved. Laundry facilities available free of charge. Wifi OK. Jacuzzi and pool available Curtains in bedroom a bit dusty.

This is a lovely place to stay, one of the nicest we have ever stayed in, and one that we have now finished our second stay at. The owners are really friendly and helpful and are always on hand when needed. There are plenty of amenities - wifi, tea and coffee, linens - and luxuries - hot tub, indoor pool...

Only stayed a night as just passing through. Chalets are a few kms inland from Mapua, not really walking distance from the village. As they are up a hill the views are amazing of the sea and the lights of Nelson. Each chalet is separate and reasonably private. Very clean and you are able to be self sufficient, even got...

The location is lovely, so peaceful and beautiful. The local village is very sweet with everything you need and some really good cafes and restaurants. Handy location for getting to Abel Tasman etc. The pool redeemed this place, without it I think we would've left early. Was perfect temperature, most days we were the only ones using it which was...

What a pleasant surprise when we reached Mapua Chalets. You have to approach it up a long gravel drive and once you locate the reception office you are quickly shown to your individual wooden chalet which are positioned such that you get really good privacy. The accommodation consists of a lounge/dining room with an open plan kitchen, separate bedroom with...
