  • A great experience and fantastic location/views of the bay. We had a few difficulties with the solar and generator set up - but anyone who's reasonably familiar batch style living shouldn't have their experience dampened by this. This place has everything you'll need to enjoy your time up in Kaiteriteri.

  • Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Kaiteri Escape last week. It is a great place to stay and everything went very smoothly. Thanks to Jarrod for his help with our queries when we arrived. We look forward to holidaying in the Nelson area in the future.

  • Kaiteri Escape, formerly known as Manuka Heights has been purchased by a local Nelson family keen to continue sharing this great property with like minded visitors! The home has been redecorated & refurnished with a fantastic new sleep-out added. We look forward to hosting guests, old & new, & posting some great feedback soon!
