Our sunny, peaceful home has stunning panoramic coastal and mountain views over Tasman Bay from the Western Ranges to Nelson.
This fantastic location is perfect for exploring the beautiful Nelson/Tasman area with its safe beaches, lakes, mountains, vineyards, breweries, artists, cafes, and bike trails. Its a great area for foodies, beer connoisseurs and wine lovers. Three National Parks, The Abel Tasman, Kahurangi and Nelson Lakes are each within an 1 hours drive.
The house is conveniently located 2.1 km from Richmond town centre with its cafes, restaurants, shops and Mall. The ASB Aquatic centre is 3km away. Easby Park is a few steps from the front door offering a children s play area, walks and the Richmond Hills Mountain Bike Park. The Great Taste Trail is nearby with easy walking or biking for everyone.
The house has three double bedrooms and two bathrooms. Two bedrooms and a bathroom are downstairs with the master bedroom and full bathroom including a bath upstairs. There are double beds in two of the bedrooms and two single beds in the third bedroom.
There is a lovely open plan kitchen (well equipped), dining room and lounge with a wood burner, all facing Tasman Bay. The dining table comfortably sits eight people but can stretch to ten. There is a small deck off the lounge facing the views. The sunny terraced garden with BBQ and seating area is fully fenced. There is parking for three cars and it is possible to get a boat trailer on the flat part of drive depending on size. Otherwise a trailer can be parked on the street.
The house is built on a hillside and so there are steps on either side to access the garden from the drive and one flight of stairs from the ground floor entrance hall to the main living upstairs. Once upstairs access to the deck, BBQ and garden is through a rear sliding door.
The house is equipped with Dimplex panel heaters in the bedrooms and hallway, heated towel rails and an electric blanket in the master bedroom. Hot water bottles are available.
The house will be cleaned before and after your visit and is included in the overall price. However, it will be much appreciated if you leave it clean and tidy in the kiwi bach tradition.
Linen: either bring your own linen (sheets, pillow cases and towels) we can provide linen for $12 per person.
A selection of toys, books, games and tourist information is included.
A highchair (a Stokke Tripp Trapp chair) and stair gate are available. The stairs are open at the hallway and so small children will need to be supervised. Similarly, on the landing the rails are wider than would be allowed in a new build.
Additional information: We have two free range pet rabbits living in the garden. They need very little attention and will be checked on in between guests. We also have a fish pond. Small children will need to be supervised in the garden due to the pond, steps and terracing.
