"Rated in top 14 most awesome sites in the world" (TripAdvisor). Gorgeous glamorous 'camping' with luxury settlers cottage (lounge, kitchen, bathroom, toilet) and Pearl and Ruby, our lovingly restored award-winning 1960s retro caravans - nestled in a glade beside a pond on a 7 acre farmlet. Pearl is an extra lounge; Ruby is the sumptuous boudoir. Themed around indulgence, quirkiness and romance, this is a holiday with a difference!

Soak in the outdoor bath with the Milky Way above and the frogs serenading nearby, explore the organic orchards and fields on the 7 acres; admire the artwork; recline in the Cape Cod chairs; toast marshmallows on the outdoor fire; head out to cycle the Great Taste Trail to local wineries, artisans, beaches with our cycle fleet; pop down to Nelson's best cafes/restaurants at Mapua seaside village.

Wander our open spaces, enjoying the birdlife, native trees and hand-feedable sheep. Bring ear-plugs for the night-time frog orchestra! Grab a lemon from the organic orchard for your G&T on your decks, or enjoy a delicious grapefruit for breakfast.

Kissing Gate truly is glamorous 'camping' - with luxury glass shower (double), a full kitchen (fridge, microwave, cooktop), 2 lounges ....and of course beautifully appointed Pearl and Ruby.

Set in cycling heaven amongst quiet country roads winding through olive groves and vineyards, Kissing Gate has ample room for cycles – you could use our electric-assist or standard bikes to visit the wineries like nearby Neudorf or Mahana. Catch the cycle ferry to Rabbit Island. It’s an easy 15min ride to Mapua seaside village with its cafes, artisans, craft brewery, live music, and stunning inlet, and use our tour maps for exploring right from the farm gate.

Check out Corru Gate (3 bdrm rural chic cottage listing #3308) or Copper Gate ( 4 bdrm 2 year old eco-savvy designer home listing #48312) or romantic sumptuous Paris Suite apartment #64198.

We have been so excited to create Kissing Gate and we would love to share its quirkiness and luxury with you.

This was the highlight of our stay in Nelson and we’d definitely come back again. It was divine sitting in front of the roaring fire listening to the animals and sounds of the night. We slept so well in our bedroom caravan and loved sitting at the ‘breakfast bar’ in the garden in the morning sunshine. We felt like we’d stepped back into a quieter age whilst still having all the comforts of home. I’d thoroughly recommend Kissing Gate.
Thank you again

Thanks! It was great to see that you had such a wonderful time.
Kissing Gate is a cute collection of well thought-out rooms and spaces nestled between the trees overlooking a frog-filled pond. It was the perfect place for a spot of relaxation while we enjoyed some time in the Nelson region. Close to wineries, the beach, cycle tracks and loads of beautiful scenery, we had a thoroughly good time exploring the local area and also the intricate details in place at Kissing Gate. Everything we would need was provided and the owners Roger and Adele were full of great advice and local knowledge of what to do in the area.
Thanks for a wonderful stay!
