About this Holiday House

Delaware Bay is less than 1/2hr drive from Nelson City (approx 26km). Our property of 24ha runs alongside the Delaware Beach so is very unique and private. We are at the end of 4kms of private road so you feel you're "the only people in this part of the world." IDEAL HONEYMOON spot, yet only 25 mins to the city for shopping etc. If 2 families want to holiday in same area , I may be able to help with 2nd cottage only 15 mins away,so if dates you require look as though they're booked, please enquire. 10 mins to "Happy Valley" 4x4 motorbike adventures and "skywire". 12 mins to "Cable Bay Walkway" through private farmland to "The Glen" another beach area. The bach is set amongst trees ,and although not far from main house, is very private. Has the feel of "the original Kiwi bach" but has modern comforts and so cosy. Large fully fenced yard. Set straight above the beach with views of Tasman Bay Where else can you have all this privacy, & only a short stroll to the beach. Try catching yourself a fish for breakfast! Sky TV Video player Sometimes you're the only one on nearly 2 miles of beach !! Cell phone coverage is patchy NO OUTDOORS FIRES TO BE LIT NO DOGS We have a 2nd listing if 2 families want to holiday together This 2nd listing is Hira Cottage 4kms Private Road Care Please

Tranquil and down to earth. Very humble kiwi bach, located in a quiet, secluded area with lots of things to do in the vicinity. In the evenings you can sit back and be mesmerised by the ocean, which is almost outside your window, of go for a very long walk on the beach. One thing to be mindful of is that there is no internet and reception is patchy, so if you need to be online, you might find it difficult, but if you are wanting to unplug, this place is great. The hosts were very helpful, thanks for your hospitality Carol and Bruce!
