little kaiteriteri, tasman

No more than an hour's drive from Nelson City or the airport will bring you to the seclusion of famous Kaiteriteri via the outlying orchards and estuaries. Travel along Nelson's scenic Coastal Highway through the Ruby Coast, take the bypass if you're in a hurry or come through the historic Upper Moutere. We're not far from Motueka and Riwaka.

So where is 'Little Kaiteriteri'? Just around the corner from Kaiteriteri Beach township and the main beach, only about one km away. You can drive around to Kaiteriteri from the motels or take a very easy stroll along the beach.

We reckon that this quiet cove is the best kept secret in the province! We chose our spot very carefully to enjoy the location as much as possible, right away from traffic and other noise. Like us, our neighbours enjoy the peace and quiet too but still have instant access to the beach and wonderful views.

two minutes walk...

We are only 200 metres/2 minutes walk from the golden sands and safe swimming on Little Kaiteriteri beach, which is surprisingly quiet even at the height of the Summer season... during the rest of the year it is virtually deserted.

So there you have it... peace without the price.
