About the property

Bach or holiday home, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)

There is no TV!

But you and the your guests or children will not miss it. Starlight is a real holiday place. Form here you can watch the day unfold, the tide come and go the colors change and the birds feed. At high water you can swim at the bottom of the garden and at low tide you can collect cockles or pippis on the Estuary. In the evening you can saute your catch on the BBQ and wash them down with a local Sauvignon.

You can sit in any room with your book and watch nature going about its day or join together with family or friends at the main table or on the balcony to play cards or a board game or have a feast prepared in the kitchen or at the BBQ.

When you are ready for an adventure you can start small and walk the 1kM to the start of the Cable Bay Walkway and go as far as you like on this fantastic cliff top coastal walkway through farmland and native bush with a marine reserve below.

Or have Cable Bay Kayaks pick you up at the door for and estuary paddle or a kayak around Peppin island (some of the best coastal paddling in New Zealand). You will likely see seals, sea caves and learn about the local Maori history.

Down the road 3kM toward Nelson is Cable Bay Adventures where you can ride a horse along back country, drive four wheel motor bike along tracks and through streams, fly the sky wire or have a game of paint ball.

Maybe you would just like a really nice coffee at the Cable Bay cafe or a light lunch.

If you must get in the car it is only 20kM to Nelson and from here a quick boat ride to the Able Tasman National park. In Nelson there are award winning restaurants, craft breweries, wineries, glass blowers and potters. Best of all when you have had your fill it is a quick drive back to the peace quiet and tranquility of Cable Bay

Great stay.

Fantastic view, beautifully appointed bach, full of character

Chris was very welcoming - and generous - allowing us to use his kayaks and sailing boats (bring your own buoyancy aids).

Highly recommended
