The Gate House

The Gate House is our own 2 storey 3-4 bedroom, 2 bathroom family home which oozes originality and character and has lovely rural, mountain range and sea views. We are proud of our art work and quirky design. Our home is based on sustainability principles with solar panels, Biolytix, and so on and has incredibly sunny spaces. Fruit trees, farm walks, lovely glades – yet Mapua seaside village is just 3 minutes drive.

Although we don’t do it very often, we enjoy sharing our own home with a small number of other careful, art-loving people at times when we are away. Feel free to ask. We might ask you to feed Pikelet and Bruiser, our 2 cats, and keep the chicken feed topped up for our 8 lovely girls. Also, with guests often at Corru Gate and Copper Gate (our 2 holiday homes/boutique accommodations on our 7 acres), we only consider quiet, respectful, non-smokers to rent The Gate House.

The Gatehouse is at Nelson’s wine, beach, artisan hub yet is just 25 min to Nelson or Abel Tasman. We have a cycle fleet available, including electric-aided bikes – perfect for one of our tour routes around the wineries or to the beaches of Rabbit Island. “We loved our stay at The Gate House & would love to stay again! Comfy King size bed & gorgeous kitchen/lounge area with everything you could possible need. Beautiful property, very relaxing & cozy. We loved the beautiful animals & fresh lemons & eggs for breakfast 🙂 Adele & Roger were a pleasure to deal with”. MP Xmas 2014.
