Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 2)

Estuary Escape is set at the top of a peaceful woody lane, nestled in amongst trees with tui's for company.

The cottage is an ideal space for two and includes an open plan kitchen, dining area and lounge and bedroom with ensuite bathroom.

For fine wining and dining, shopping or eating ice cream and drinking coffee take a leisurely stroll to Mapua Wharf. Or hire a bike and cycle to the delicious Jester Cafe.

Another 2 minute leisurely stroll will take you down the Langford Drive walkway down to the estuary or perhaps to Grossi Point for some swimming, boating or kayaking.

We are in the house next door so we are on hand for advice on where to go as Estuary Escape is a great place to explore the Tasman region.

We spent 7 wonderful days in Mapua with Estuary Escape as our home away from home. Very private location only a few minutes walk from the Mapua Wharf restaurants, cafes and shops. The unit is very well appointed with everything we needed for our stay. Would love to stay at this property again.

Excellent property.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property. Really good position close to the wharf with nice surrounding trees. Air conditioning was appreciated as it was a scorcher, especially after biking the Great Taste Trail.
