A typical Nelson blue-sky winter day

August 2009 Recent guests took these lovely photos - their comments are below. You can see the view to D'Urville Island from the farm paddocks; in winter there is so much to see and explore around the farm. The inlet walkway circuit around Mapua is our favourite after-work walk - and it is nice to finish off with a snack and coffee at one of the cafes on the wharf.

"Corru Gate rocks! We have loved every minute of our stay in Mapua and what an amazing little piece of paradise you have created here at Corru Gate! We really don't want to leave. :-( This has been a terrific base for our stay in the wider Nelson region, making day trips to Kaiteriteri, Motueka, Richmond, Nelson City etc - only a stone's throw away. Mapua Village is so gorgeous. Fab shops! Thanks Roger for all the very helpful information before and during our stay - much appreciated. We've enjoyed the potbelly. Thanks very much. Cheers - Dan, Melissa, Thomas, and Charlotte."
