About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 2)

Estuary Escape is set at the top of a peaceful woody lane, nestled in amongst trees with tui's for company.

The cottage is an ideal space for two and includes an open plan kitchen, dining area and lounge and bedroom with ensuite bathroom.

For fine wining and dining, shopping or eating ice cream and drinking coffee take a leisurely stroll to Mapua Wharf. Or hire a bike and cycle to the delicious Jester Cafe.

Another 2 minute leisurely stroll will take you down the Langford Drive walkway down to the estuary or perhaps to Grossi Point for some swimming, boating or kayaking.

We are in the house next door so we are on hand for advice on where to go as Estuary Escape is a great place to explore the Tasman region.

We offer weekly/monthly rates - please contact us for more information.

Within a 5 minute stroll is:

? The Mapua Wharf with lovely shops and galleries, delicious restaurants and fish and chips, an awesome craft brewery and waterfront views.

? The Mapua Ferry to catch a ride over to Rabbit Island, either walking or biking.

The location was perfect and within walking distance to wharf - loved it. We don't generally worry overly about having no tv but because of the ChCh fires we missed not having it and that would be the only reason we didn't rate the property 5 stars.

The location, within walking distance of Mapua Warf with the beautiful estuary views and variety of restaurants and cafes, was great. The bach is attractively appointed and clean, and the bed is very comfortable. The private tree lined driveway and outdoor seating area also really enhance the bach.
