About this Holiday House

Relax in luxury in our beautiful self-contained studio-style cottage in its lovely, extensive and tranquil garden setting whence you can explore the Nelson-Tasman Region and local attractions including wineries, craft breweries, art galleries and craft centres, the Car Museum and its amazing classic cars; go horse riding, tramping, swimming, wind-surfing, kayaking around Abel Tasman NP, or biking the Great Taste Trail, etc. With views to Tasman Bay and Richmond Range foothills the cottage is just 5 minutes from central Richmond with mall, cafes/restaurants and a great library. We are 15 minutes to safe beaches, 20 minutes to central Nelson and less than an hour to beautiful Kaiteriteri, Abel Tasman National Park or Lake Rotoiti; Mapua and Motueka will take 20-30 minutes. Your hosts, Pat and Peter, handy across the way from your cottage, will be happy to help direct you to places and activities you can enjoy. The cottage provides a garden retreat where you can put your feet up to watch a favourite movie on TV or DVD or indulge in a glass of local wine whilst gazing upon the garden view to the tune of Tuis and Bellbirds, maybe a pheasant or two and our busy Quail families. Even a Kaka has appeared recently!

My wife and I stayed in the cottage for 10 nights over the Christmas, New Year period. Our original preference was to be located near Tahuninui beach but after arriving at the cottage we had no regrets with our choice. The cottage is situated in a quiet location amongst beautiful grounds, there are stunning views over the bay and it is only two minutes drive to the local park/gardens and three minutes drive to the Richmond shopping precinct. The cottage is easily the best appointed unit we have stayed in as it is furnished with virtually everything you could need. The cottage's location is great for exploring parts of the area which you may never get to if you are confined to Nelson city or the beach. Peter and Pat were friendly, fantastic hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed their hospitality and company. We would definitely consider booking the accommodation again.
We would highly recommend staying at Quail Run. The cottage was even nicer than it is in the photos! So comfortable, so clean, everything you need is there. Peter and Pat are the most accommodating hosts and manage to maintain the most beautiful grounds at Quail Run. We will definitely be staying again. Thanks Peter and Pat!!
Lovely surroundings. Lovely people. Will come again!
