We’ve stayed at Artists Haven for our summer break for several years now and can’t speak highly enough of both Gay & Derek and their wonderful place. Fantastic location within an easy driving distance to so many of the great Nelson/Tasman attractions. The grounds and views are amazing and the pool is great for cooling off and relaxing beside. Great facilities and accomodation. Gay & Derek are fantastic hosts and great people who we thoroughly enjoy catching up with. Most definitely the ‘peaceful haven’ described.

Artist's Haven is a treasure, a tranquil spot with beautiful views, gorgeous sunrises and gracious hosts. The place is clean, has good linen, comfortable beds with lots of little thoughtful details to make one’s stay as pleasant as possible. I instantly felt right at home. Gay and Derek can advise on local attractions and Derek’s stunning artworks are definitely worth viewing. Highly recommend if you are seeking peace and quiet with a wonderful outlook whilst still being close to Mapua, Ruby Bay and the Tasman area. Thank you :-)

This property is in a lovely setting. Plenty of outdoor living spaces and a lovely solar heated pool to enjoy. The hosts Gay and Derek are very nice, friendly and accommodating - just ask if there is anything you need. The kitchen/living room is small for four people, but we made it work. Plenty of outdoor areas to enjoy. I would highly recommend this property to others looking to stay in the Mapua area
Response from Owner
