About this Holiday House

After a long break, we are pleased to bring back Tiro Moana for the 22/23 Summer! With windows along the entire western side of the house there are spectacular sea views over Tahunanui Beach to the Takaka mountain range. It's a 20 minute walk to the beach and a six minute drive to Nelson township. The private garden with a small lawn is a great place for dining, sitting and looking out to the sea. All this from a private access, top story apartment.

Special Amenities

Near the very top of Britannia Heights, Tiro Moana is a weatherboard style top story apartment. It's surprisingly secluded with its own private, flat access. The stunning and totally uninterrupted sea views extend 180 degrees and include Tahunanui Beach and the Takaka Hills across the Bay. The place is in bathed in sun, especially in the afternoons with the lounge and kitchen looking out to the West. Everything is very fresh and clean with new furniture added for a relaxed, comfortable and enjoyable stay. Great for a one or two couples, or a family wanting sole use of a casual and relaxing home. Lounge/Kitchen/Dinning: open plan area with a well appointed kitchen including a dishwasher and for coffee lovers a Nespresso with lots of capsules, a plunger and a stove top expresso maker with local coffee. You'll find plenty of pans, platters, and cooking utensils. There is also a soda water maker. Garden area: pathways through the garden lead to a flat lawn area with a gas BBQ, tables and chairs plus a good sized umbrella. Main bedroom: queen bed, double wardrobe with views to the leafy private garden. Second bedroom: Can be configured as two singles or superking, views to the south. Let us know how you would like the room configured. Double wardrobe. Study: separate room with morning sun facing out to the garden Laundry: washer and dryer in cupboard Bathroom: shower and basin Toilet: separate Linens: towels are all plush spa sized and bed linen is high quality lush 100% cotton. Separate beach towels also provided. The space is very private and fenced from the road. We hope you enjoy Tiro Moana as much as we do!

Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

Our love for Nelson comes from the great outdoors, great food and wine, and great art that's all to be found here. Tiro Moana is close to it all. In no particular order: Craft Beer: Nelson also happens to be the craft beer capital of NZ (we're not at all biased...). There's a multitude of brewers near and far. The Sprig and Fern has several watering holes around Nelson and the Freehouse is a great place to sample many of the local brews. The original is to be found over the Takaka Hill: The Mussel Inn. Wineries: Last count, 26 in the area. We suggest a thorough investigation into all. Especially Neudorf if pinot is your thing. Restaurants: Where to start? Down the hill water side is the Boat Shed and the Boat House - both over the water, and three more besides, max drive four minutes. In town, Hopgoods is our fav, it and Urban Oyster have just won awards. All in all, we reckon once you count,Nelson restaurants, the winery restaurants, the Mapua restaurants, the ones in Richmond, and all the Thai places, you could eat out somewhere new everyday during a six month sabbatical. And pretty much enjoy every one. Most favourite cafe ever: Raglan Roast at the bottom of the hill. Food generally: there is a cornucopia of artisan cheese, seafood, fruit, veges, peanut butter and other yummies here. Best starting place is the Saturday Market, a full 6 minutes to drive down, another 6 to find a park if you're arriving after 9.30am. The breakfast crepes in the yellow trailer....hard to go past.... we're still addicted after five years. Art: so personal - check out the Nelson Art Trail. We're slowly building our collection at Tiro Moana. Or combine everything into the Art & Food Route on the Great Taste Trail. Mountain Biking - so yeah, we do reckon Nelson is the MTB capital of the WORLD! Closest single track ride is 20 mins ride away (a bit more coming back up the hill home...). The most epic ride is still under research but we're very happy to share our current favourites with you. Sorry no gondolas for those hills out there. E's not cheating! Also out there: Tramping, paragliding, rock climbing, SUP, kayaking...... We can hook you up.
