Other Recommendations

Other personal favourites of ours are.

  • A day exploring the cafés and boutiques of Nelson City is a must. For a real New Zealand coffee experience, grab a Custom-Deluxe Double Espresso from Sublime Coffee Roasters on Haven Drive.
  • Get to Nelson on a Saturday if you can, and experience the vibrant Nelson Market: 8am - 1pm in Montgomery Square off Bridge Street.
  • Visit one of the many art galleries around Nelson City or others located nearby on the Art Trails.
  • Head for Mapua Wharf and enjoy a cold Chardonnay, or a locally brewed beer.
  • Never taken a stroll through a Native New Zealand Rain Forest? The most accessible (even for those in a wheel-chair), is the Resurgence just beyond Riwaka, in the direction of Golden Bay. Ask us for directions. It's an easy drive and a lovely short stroll to a natural river resurgence.
  • Thinking of a day trip to Golden Bay? 'Pupu Springs' is an absolute must, and perhaps lunch at the Naked Possum, or the Mussel Inn?

We ended our honeymoon at The Waters and we couldn't have chose a better place. Waking up to the ocean in your back yard is very relaxing and the breakfast was great as well. The host's were fabulous too. I could say 100 things great about this place and nothing negative.
