Get away from the stresses and strains of a hectic life with views of nothing but nature

Live life in the slow lane for a while!

Standalone, self-contained, romantic B&B

An architecturally designed, stand alone, self-contained and well-appointed romantic chalet for JUST YOU. And enjoy unparalleled views overlooking Cable Bay, Pepin Island (the Maori name is Omaia), and beyond, in beautiful Nelson, New Zealand. You can take in the panoramic views from your bath, over a glass of local award-winning wine or perhaps a hand-crafted, icy COLD local beer (unless you’re English!) on your private deck. Luxury indeed!

Totally private

Our point of difference is PRIVACY: surrounded by nature; no near neighbours; standalone accommodation – hosts live in house next door; NO shared facilities, therefore no need to make polite conversation with strangers. Moreover, we only take SINGLE PARTY bookings with a maximum of 2 people. Consequently, accommodation at your 5-star totally-private, custom-built B&B guest house  – your “Cable Bay Nest” — is a luxurious and highly-rated experience, a romantic coastal getaway, yet only 20 minutes to Nelson and all of its vibrant offerings there.

Please note: minimum of 2 nights’ stay.

Romantic hideaway

Allow yourself to unwind in the calming ambience of Cable Bay; savour your romantic and carefree getaway. From luxurious sea-view baths, to local wines and hand-crafted local beers, or perhaps lazing on a beach that’s virtually your own, you’ll find plenty to indulge in here. Similarly, curl up with a good book in the mezzanine loft hideaway, or listen to music as you watch the tide ebb and flow. Lounge on your own private deck in the sun while you plan your next excursion. And definitely don’t forget to check out the many astounding places in Nelson, Tasman and Marlborough. Do check out our “Things to Do” page!
