This thoughtfully and beautifully curated iconic early 19th century villa will bowl you over by being the perfect setting for you to relax as a family or a group of up to 8 adults. With the Kahurangi ranges on the horizon and the Abel Tasman National Park & the golden sandy beaches of Kaiteriteri & Golden Bay a short drive away, this is the perfect spot to either use as a base for all the activities this region has to offer, or to relax and unwind while you sample the regional beaches...
A boutique, luxury, iconic early 19th century villa, this newly renovated & thoughtfully curated space is the perfect setting for you to relax as a family or a group of up to 8 adults.
Original and re-furbished vintage art is displayed throughout the house which adds to the charm and character of the house.
The lounge is generous with two living areas, one with the television and a very commodious and comfortable couch. The other side houses a daybed that also has the option of opening out into a super-king sized bed, a workstation for you to be able to check those emails and stay connected with the world at large or just write in your journal...
Free wifi is available in the house for your use - we understand the importance of sharing your holiday & keeping in touch with the world at large!
The TV is hooked into the free-view stations.
There is a lovely fireplace with firewood supplied (in the winter) to ensure you are toasty and warm. There is also a heat pump to warm you up at the flick of a button.
Ed's has an "HRV System" installed which ensures that the house maintains an even temperature and reduces moisture - great for those winter months!
The "Summit Suite" is our largest bed-suite, housing a queen sized bed and our ode to Sir Ed and his love of heights.
"The Nest" has a double bed and features some of our favourite NZ iconic, indigenous birds.
The "Crown Suite" has a queen sized bed and pays homage to King Edward(s), the name of the road where we are located!
All our bed-suites have plush linen provided for your use - crisp white sheets & covers, fluffy pillows, and soft towels. There is a wardrobe in each suite, along with hangers.
There is a separate shower and toilet. Basic toiletries like shampoo, conditioner, bodywash, lotion and toilet paper are provided for your convenience and use.
Should you feel like cooking up a storm, the kitchen has all the basics - pots, pans, dishes - even baking trays! The pantry houses the basics as well.
We have freshly ground espresso coffee to use with the coffee machine so you can get your caffeine fix before you head out. There is also complementary tea & coffee, as well as some spreads to enliven your breakfast.
Very handy to the town "airport" you could sit on the front verandah and watch the planes take off & land and gaze at the parachutes drifting into sight - as you contemplate when you take that plunge yourself!
As I write this, the orange tree is laden with fruit - perfect for a midday snack or to juice for an afternoon chiller... The peach trees are bowing under the weight of their fruit, perfect for the picking. Look out for the grapes on the vine - black, juicy and sweet...
For all your other queries and concerns, please feel free to get in touch with us at any time; we are usually very good at getting back.

We are a family that consider ourselves absolutely blessed to live where we do! With two of the country's best national parks, golden sand beaches, bike trails and local produce all at our doorstep, we're also pretty spoilt for choice. We love travelling, the outdoors, good food and wine and of course, meeting people and swapping stories.
Together, we run a design studio called MixMedia where we handle our clients' graphic, web and print management needs, as well as indulge in our real passion - The Paperface - a fine paper goods brand, focussed on NZ designed and manufactured greeting cards, prints, gift wrap and other whimsical things. Check us out on (Also excuse us from lavishly spreading our work across our houses to pretty them up - we can't but help ourselves!)
