The Huts have been inspired from our guests who love staying at Appleby House - we are very country, although close to beaches, wineries, rivers, galleries, cafes & restaurants, you can see the stars forever with stunning views in all directions. Also 300 mtrs from the Nelson Tasman Great Taste Trail - great place to start or explore the area by bike, or as a stop over while doing the Trail
Very peaceful with your only neighbors being the sheep and cows who occupy the paddocks next door.
Rabbit Island Huts (ensuite) are small spaces of luxury, they are built high to take in the views of the Mt Arthur ranges, Waimea Estuary and the Richmond Hills.
Situated on 25 acres alongside Appleby House.
Close to Rabbit Island - swimming beach, walking and cycling tracks, Rougt Island Equestrian park, rivers, wineries and Mapua for restaurants, galleries and cafes.
A little bit hotel, little bit glamping and a little bit traditional kiwi camping.
Outdoor fire and BBQ area
Free wifi, parking, specialty teas & coffees and Appleby House homemade condiments.
Your Hut has everything you need, gorgeous bed and linen, fridge, tea & coffee making facilities (TV optional) and bathroom.
There is also a shared kitchen area and outdoor fire and BBQ area.

Другие важные подробности
The property houses Appleby House (boutique hotel style) with four rooms, Rabbit Island Huts with three ensuite Huts and three shared bathroom Huts, plus one glamping tent.
There is also a shared kitchen space and BBQ & fire area - great place to sit in the evening and take in the stunning surroundings.
The owners Jane & John also reside on the property in a separate dwelling.
I love my property - 25 acres on the Waimea Plains with views forever. Love inviting guests to enjoy it also, it is very peaceful and allows you to settle and just think.
John and I also love planting more and more natives to bring back the bird life, this property was once cleared of Natives to allow for farming, we are slowly restoring it.
And my real passion is finding bits to add to the property, could be a cushion or a chair to restore or a simple plate.
We very much enjoy our guests but also value their privacy, so will be there to chat but also leave everyone to do their own thing.
