About this Holiday House

Romantic luxurious immaculate standalone apartment with wonderful views across farmland and valley to the sea and mountains beyond. Totally private, quiet and wow-factor (see feedback). Private, arty and ultra-modern on 7 acres and 4 min to Mapua seaside village, the Paris Suite is one of Nelson's most design-savvy and eco-friendly abodes with super-insulation making for summer-cool or winter-warm stays. Celebrating NZ domestic life and art, the Paris Suite includes a large retro-themed lounge, chefs-delight kitchen, walk-in wardrobe, en suite, laundry and stunning views from large decks overlooking grazing sheep across the valley and to the sea. Grab a grapefruit from the organic orchards for a breakfast on the wide decks or savour local wines under a starry sky in the country darkness. Wander the 7 acres and converse meaningfully with the sheep and chickens. Many native birds, including the native falcon, can be observed from the decks. Wineries or the magic of Mapua seaside village are just a 15 minute cycle away (3 minute drive). The Paris Suite is strategically located midway between Nelson and Abel Tasman. With NZ art and interior design that is truly unique and stylish, this luxury retreat for two is the perfect escape to the quintessential Nelson lifestyle. Nelson's best restaurants are on the Mapua Wharf just a few minutes away, as are artisan shops, beach walks, a wine bar, craft brewery, and country lanes to explore. The Great Taste cycle trail passes by the gate. "Not sure where to start - this place is absolutely amazing. Everything worked for us - including brilliant weather. Adele & Roger - you are top notch hosts & so warm & welcoming (loved the eggs & especially the grapefruit right outside). Thanks for a fantastic break away - we'll definitely be back. Love what you've done here. :-) Marie & Shaun Harris Dunedin PS A complete home away from home."

"Great place for catching the sun and the long country view. Sheep were very entertaining; house was very cosy with the fire on. Very well equipped & comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay.
Response from Owner
Thanks for staying. We are glad that you had such a good opportunity to pursue your bird photography here....and relax of course.
Our stay in the Paris Suite at Coppergate was perfect! The Eco-friendly house design and features, beautifully decorated interior, luxurious room and stunning views out toward Mapua Bay all made for a wonderfully relaxing escape. We borrowed the awesome electric bikes and cruised around the local area visiting wineries, and hooray no pedalling on the uphill! We enjoyed perusing the cute boutiques down at Mapua wharf and especially loved the peanut butter cup milkshake from Alberta’s on the corner which Coppergate owner Adele recommended to us. Roger and Adele were brilliant hosts, sharing their insider knowledge of the area and making sure we had an absolutely incredible stay. We hope to return to the area some day and will definitely be staying here again!
Response from Owner
Thanks! We find that the Paris Suite option works well. We 'lock off' the 3 bedrooms and main bathroom down the hall and so turning Copper Gate in to a large 1 bedroom apartment. The hall bedrooms are unoccupied meaning exclusive use of the building.
What a great stay. Lovely house great amenities and the sheep are gorgeous. Waking to the sound of tui and frogs - perfect. So close to Mapua for great dining and so close to Golden Bay - perfect
