Breathe... Relax... Unwind...

Nelson Coastal Barnstay

Your sanctuary by the sea


There is a place on the Ruby Coast where the Tasman Bay coastline meets the warm Tasman Bay waters, a hillside retreat between mountains and sea.

Guests come to enjoy the spectacular sea and mountain views and our two self-contained coastal cottages & the Main House in the heart of Nelson’s wine and apple growing region.

Of particular interest are the farmyard animals which provide constant amusement....there's the two ever-hungry kune kune pigs, George and Dudley, and recent acquisitions the two inquisitive alpacas, Raymond and Stanley, and our assorted flock of chickens.

Nelson Coastal Barnstay offers an ideal base for travellers who desire stylish and comfortable boutique, Nelson self-catering accommodation. Stay for a month or longer, or enjoy just a few days in the self-contained cottage of your choice.


Relax at Nelson accommodation in the heart of Nelson’s vineyards and wineries. Explore nearby cafés, artist studios and galleries, beaches and outdoor recreation.

Just 30 minutes drive from Abel Tasman National Park and 30 minutes from Nelson City.

We welcome long stay enquiries and bookings of a month or more and can offer a reliable wifi broadband connection.
