Situated just 25 minutes from both Nelson and the stunning Abel Tasman National Park, yet just a five minute drive from Mapua Wharf's waterfront restaurants, cafes and boutique stores. This area was covered by apple orchards until very recently and 'Aporo' is Maori for Apple. Toffee Apple Cottage is a recently renovated apple worker's cottage with oodles of rustic charm. From the hardwood Rimu sarking to the exposed wooden floors. Enjoy stunning views over the remaining orchards, vineyards and the mountain ranges with Mt Arthur rising majestically. These ex-orchard worker's cottages have been finished to a high standard with a relaxing, intimate environment, private gardens and decking. Toffee Apple Cottage is a cosy cottage for the romantic at heart. With all the luxuries of home, it is especially suited for those seeking privacy and a degree of independence. It is beautifully furnished and equipped to cater for your every need. Sleeping up to 5 guests, all rooms enjoy great views and often spectacular sunrises. The large covered deck offers a shady place to linger with a glass of wine, offering respite from the sun. With views to the Richmond ranges, the rear deck is where pre-dinner wine and canapes must be enjoyed. Ruby Bay beach is just a short walk from the cottage along the Great Taste Trail. Tasman's Great Taste Trail Read More starts from Nelson Airport and offers panoramic coastal views over Tasman Bay, Waimea Estuary and the Western Ranges, including Mt Arthur, Mt Owen and Mt Crusader. Riders pass over boardwalks along the edge of the Waimea Estuary, home to a range of internationally significant bird species including the White Heron and Royal Spoonbill. From here the trail crosses to Rabbit Island, where riders can take a boat trip to Mapua wharf and enjoy cottage industry shops, cafes and restaurants. From Mapua the route leads via Tasman and Harley Road to Motueka, which hosts award winning wineries, then on to Kaiteriteri, the gateway to the Abel Tasman National Park. The Motueka Valley section of the trail from Riwaka goes to Woodstock on country roads along the Motueka River's west bank. The landscape is one of rivers and rolling hills with a backdrop of forest and mountains. Mapua Wharf At the mouth of the vast Waimea Estuary the Mapua Wharf is home to a vibrant collection of restaurants, cafe's, galleries, stores and attractions. Eat fish and chips on the wharf, visit the aquarium, fish off the wharf with your family or browse amongst the unique stores showcasing local artisans and quality goods. In the summer wharf jumping and riding the tide are popular and so is enjoying a glass of something cold and a great meal while watching the tide come in and out. Mapua means abundance and the rich waters of the Waimea Estuary have attracted settlers from early Maori through to the bustling community that has grown up around the Mapua Wharf today. The photo museum operated at the wharf by the Mapua Boat Club records this history and events that have shaped the growth of the wharf. A short 25 minute drive from Nelson, the Mapua Wharf makes a great day out with friends and family. The new waterfront park currently under development includes a waterfront amphitheatre for public concerts and the national cycleway project is bringing a new ferry service to connect the Rabbit Island Cycleway with the Mapua Wharf this coming summer. Wineries & Vineyards Nelson Tasman is home to twenty five boutique wineries, dotted across the picturesque hills and plains of the region's wine growing country. Many offer cellar door tastings and an opportunity to meet the personalities behind some of the region's internationally acclaimed wines. The fruit of the region's wines is making a big splash in the international wine world. Innovative and adventurous winemakers are crafting together flavours from a diverse array of grapes to stunning effect. Our speciality is in aromatic wines but the skills of highly experienced viticulturalists are stamping a mark on the world stage with Nelson Tasman positioning itself as the new speciality wine centre of New Zealand. Many vineyards have cellar door tastings where you can meet the people behind the wines and learn about their art. An organised wine tour is highly recommended. We all love Nelson wines.

              Rated by TripAdvisor in the top 14 glamping sites in the world! Kissing Gate is a luxury romantic escape, staying in lovingly restored vintage caravans and with a quirky cottage. Ruby, a 1964 Classic, is the bedroom caravan - glamorous and gorgeous, a romantic boudoir, complete with super-comfortable queen size bed. Award-winning Pearl is the lounging caravan, like a 1960s milk bar, with a booth style table and comfortable seating - a cheerful space to relax after a day exploring the region. A separate luxury shower/toilet/bathroom/kitchen cottage is for your exclusive use. Mains electricity and wifi makes for up-market 'camping.' Kissing Gate, part of the Canopy Camping Escapes portfolio of glamping sites, nestles in a glade beside a pond with boat, deck and gorgeous rural views.

Cycles available for exploring the wineries, art studios, Great Taste Trail. Abel Tasman National Park and Nelson are 30 minutes in either direction. The property is peaceful and quiet with an abundance of birdlife; from tui in the kowhai to kereru, quail, and kingfisher. In summer, finches and skylarks abound. A humid night will bring the sound of frogs from the newly planted flax-edged pond. Kissing Gate is glamping with a touch of whimsy. A quaint and beautiful setting, intriguing sculptures, creative artifacts and romantic hints will delight guests. The actual 'kissing gate' (the entrance into the glade) sits underneath mistletoe beside heritage hydrangeas and curving paths. The convenient combination of quiet farm life and proximity to Mapua with its beaches, cafes, artisans, wineries and rural cycling makes for the best of all worlds - a highly unique campsite. Check out Copper Gate (ultra modern 4 bdrm eco-savvy heritage art design) or Corru Gate (3 bdrm rural chic cottage) which are also on the 7 acres. Rural - it is just possible to see a house or 2 in the distance. Nearby - olive groves, orchards, vineyards. Private and rural yet close to wonderful Mapua seaside village, Abel Tasman National Park and Nelson.
