    Additional Location Information
    Situated at the top of the South Island of New Zealand, Nelson City has an airport with frequent flights to and from the major cities around the country and connecting flights to smaller centres. It is a 35 minute flight to Wellington or 30 minutes to Christchurch for connecting international flights. It takes approximately 20 minutes (24 km) to drive to the cottages from Nelson airport.

    If you are travelling by car from the North Island, there is a car and passenger ferry between Wellington and Picton which is in the Marlborough Sounds. The drive from Picton to Mapua takes appoximately 2.5 hours (140 km).

    Traveling West from Nelson, Matahua is the last peninsula on the Waimea Inlet before you reach the village of Mapua. The cottages are 500 metres from the main coastal road that connects Nelson City with Golden Bay and the Abel Tasman National Park (State Highway 60). We are located at the very end of Apple Valley Road East.

However our house isn't...
