Special Amenities

"At Corru Gate we discovered everything that we most enjoy about holiday accommodation; peace and privacy in the lovely courtyard and strolling through the property. We loved all the cool creative arty touches as well as the contemporary design of the cottage. Enjoyed the bath and very efficient “pot belly” – really cozy at night! You are at the perfect location in Nelson - so close to beaches, wineries and EVERYTHING! Thanks." G, M and P Wellington.

Response from Owner
Thanks for stayingat Corru Gate Paulien. You are a lovely family and it was a pleasure to help with your cycle exploration of the area, as well as spending time with you just chatting.
Hi Adele and Roger, it was so nice meeting you! Your place is lovely with a lot of NZ charm, exactly what I was looking for. We stayed 2 nights at Corru gate 2 adults and 2 kids, It was relaxing (even with the rain!) the kids loved feeding the animals and the house was comfortable for 4 people. The mezzanine give extra space as well. The kitchen is very well equipped and has a coffee maker which was rare in NZ. Roger showed us around, which was very nice of him.Loved it! thank you Roger and Adele
Response from Owner
Thanks for your lovely comments. It was great fun to show you and the children around the farmlet and for them to feed the tame sheep. Thanks too for your comments about Corru Gate - yes, we have liked making an iconic NZ rural themed cottage. You are lovely people and it was an absolute pleasure to host you.
