Appleby House & Rabbit Island Huts
Reviewed September 19, 2010

Stayed at Appleby House for a long weekend away, to get away from the recent Earthquake in Christchurch and could not have had a better experience. Easy to find, and amazing location. Very isolated (in a good way) and very very quiet, and only a short distance to both Richmond/Nelson and Motueka. The room we stayed in was very modern and well designed with ensuite bathroom with fenced off courtyard with outdoor bath. John and Jane were lovely and the open pantry policy was a great touch. The fridges and pantry were well stocked with everything you could need, and great fresh fruit and veges. Brought our dog with us and it was great not to have to leave her at home. Highly recommend this place for any type of traveller, and especially for travellers from overseas as the place is a working farm so you can get a real taste of rural NZ.
