About the property

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

Corru Gate: Sunny, private, architecturally-designed, quiet, children-friendly cottage - 3 bdrm Corru Gate features a distinctly 'arty' NZ flavour on 7 acres of grounds with sea and mountain views. Corru Gate is stylish and different - city chic meets country style. Set in 7 acres of paradise beside Mapua seaside village, Corru Gate has a real NZ flavour - stained board and batten, and corrugated iron. Barn red detailing, sunny colours, flax, ferns and koru add to the kiwi styling.

Corru Gate is built with sustainability principles. We value our natural environment (open spaces, birds and native trees). We have organic orchards ? grab a lemon for your GandT on the deck, or enjoy a delicious breakfast grapefruit. Children are welcome ? both places are fenced and there is a playground, treehut, chickens, tame sheep, pond swimming and SPACE. Babysitter list too!

Welcoming and comfortable, Corru Gate Cottage has a zany kitchen, a sunny, open plan lounge/dining area, and French doors opening onto a deck and private garden - all with creative design.

We really enjoyed the characterfulness of Corru Gate, the fun of the farm, and the facilities. The location was ideal for us, nice and quiet and well off the road, close enough to Mapua to get there easily for dinner, supplies etc and for the whole family to cycle back and forth.

The property was GREAT !

  • 5 of 5

The property was GREAT ! The wood fire was a hooper addition to the cottage and as the weather was not great kept us all warm and snug. The property was in a very good location and anyone visiting must go down to the Apple Shack for a great view and incredible food. The owners were attentive to our needs and made us very welcome. The facilities were clean and very comfortable, the kids loved the treehouse style upstairs bed. I would highly recumbent this property and the others they have.

We had a very enjoyable stay in a great central location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay in a great central location. It made visiting both Nelson, Kaiteriteri and everything inbetween easy day trips. This included some lovely beaches and Richmond pool not too far for an indoor splash about.

There was a lot of good exploring for the children and having a trampoline and playground on site gave them a bit of freedom, within hearing distance of the house. The accomodation provided everything we needed. Would not hesitate to recomend to friends and family.
