Kina Retreat - Tasman Bay, Nelson
average rating of 4.0 based on 2 reviews

We had major problems here.

  • 3 of 5

We had major problems here. The property is magnificent but the management is shoddy. Cleaning needs addressing. Floors and windows dirty. Pool was dirty and unheated, despite advertising that it was heated. Wifi didn’t work, Sonos sound system didn’t work. Correspondence (privately) over three weeks to address these issues resulted in a vague offer of a 20% discount on some future rental. Sorry. When I am paying $1500 a night I expect way more than this.

Kina Retreat is an absolutely beautiful property, great for large family groups with kids.

  • 5 of 5

Kina Retreat is an absolutely beautiful property, great for large family groups with kids. We had a total of 3 families, with 6 adults and 7 kids, and we had a blast, running around the large gardens, lazing in the hammocks or swimming on the sunny days. The view across the Tasman Bay is absolutely stunning. The property is a short drive from supermarkets at Motueka, as well as multiple wineries, fruit farms and other attractions.

The Nelson region is known for its year-round sunshine, golden beaches, national parks, boutique wineries, micro breweries and a large creative community of working artists.

Kina Retreat is only a short drive to Motueka (15 mins), Kaiteriteri (30 mins), the Abel Tasman Coast Track (36 mins - New Zealand’s most popular track, a coastal wonderland of sea, sky, rocky headlands and bright golden beaches) and the Heaphy Track (New Zealand’s longest track).

It will take you about 15 minutes to drive to Mapua Wharf, its cafes, art galeries and restaurants where a ferry crosses every 30 mins to Rabbit Island (one of the most beautiful beaches in the area).

Nelson (40 mins drive) attractions and activities offer a great range of adventurous outdoor activities including, scenic cruises, art attractions, canoeing & kayaking, horse riding, scenic flights, canyoning and much more—you name it, you can do it!

Add to this locally grown produce, freshly caught seafood, great markets on Wednesday and Saturday, historical streetscapes and waterfront restaurants and you'll see that it offers a thoroughly pleasurable base for your holiday break!
