Booking Conditions & Notes
No parties, no venue use, no smoking inside, no pets, no guests that do not form part of the booking. A refundable bond is required. Please view our Terms & Conditions.
Private holiday home - This home is a personal holiday home. The home is extremely well equipped & presented as photographed, however, some of the owner's personal belongings will remain at the home in wardrobes, pantries etc. While very little is sacrificed in terms of the 'guest experience', this aspect has been factored into pricing, providing you with incredible value relative to similar properties around the country.
Swimming pool - This pool is solar heated. Solar heating is generally effective in Nelson-Tasman between December & April, when the weather is warmer and the days are longer. Water temperature will of course be subject to actual weather conditions.
Outside of the 'swimming months', the solar system is ineffective and will not be operated. Cold water swimming will of course be possible - please let us know if you intend to swim during this time and we'll have the pool serviced prior to your arrival.
Rural area - Kina Retreat is located in a rural area with mains power, tank water & rural broadband internet. 99% of the time these services will run perfectly, but the rural nature of the property can occasionally mean that some patience & understanding is necessary.

Good morning Our stay at Kina Retreat went well and the family had a wonderful time. Thanks especially to Sara for taking my calls in the lead up to our stay, and for making the whole process pretty seamless. Regards Mike

Hi Team Kina Retreat was a wonderful experience for all of us. The property is absolutely amazing and all the facilities were exceptional. My friends from the North Island were overwhelmed by the magnificence of the property on arrival and we all felt like millionaires for the duration of our stay! The weather was brilliant and although swimming was not an option the pool table was worthy of a competitive tournament for us! Thank you for the thorough communication regarding our stay and Rob for showing us the ropes on arrival on Friday. Jarrod thank you for communicating with Ian over the power surge and the unfortunate breakage – I understand you are dealing with Ian directly on this as he has taken full responsibility for this. I do hope I have a chance to have another stay at Kina Retreat in the future. All the best team, you are doing a great job. Cheers Michelle

Fantastic location and plenty of room for our family holiday. We had a few issues when arriving from things displayed on the air BnB site but everything was sorted for when we were there.
Jennie B. - Jul, 2021
Absolutely fantastic holiday, accommodation, views, facilities, location and service. Would love to be able to come back !
Sandy D. - Apr, 2021
Amazing place that catered for our group of 10. 6 adults and children 15-3. Truely stunning home that feels comfortable and has the most amazing aspect with both sun rise and sun set on full display. The pool area and kitchen/living were the hubs of our stay. Can’t wait to return and if you can stay, you won’t regret it.

An absolutely lovely property. Very well appointed. So nice that we booked for longer next summer. Thanks for having us
David McKee - Jan, 2021
Amazing holiday location. Had a great time. Very well appointed.
David M - Jan, 2021
This is a thoughtfully designed executive quality home. Amazing for the large family group we had stay to celebrate a significant birthday. Great for kids with a pool and play spaces. Great for anyone with a birds eye view of Tasman bay. The home was missing one or two service touches that would transform this stay into a leading experience anyway in the world!
Anne Pattillo - Oct, 2020
Beautiful spot for a family getaway

Matt McDowell - Oct, 2019
Hello We had the most amazing time and wish we had booked to stay an extra night, maybe next year! Just the hot water not being switched on was the only issue, but apart from that 100% perfecto! See you next year, Kim and the crew

House was amazing and we had the best time. Thanks to Jarrod for his assistance throughout as well!
Kyla Hamilton - Dec, 2018
Utterly fabulous place to stay and enjoy the amazing facilities and surroundings. The hosts were very generous with their space and provisions. All clean and beautifully laid out- this place is truly a wonderful retreat for a special holiday or occasion. 10/10 indeed!
Maree VandeWater - Oct, 2018
Hi team We have nothing but positive feedback on our stay at Kina Retreat - what a fabulous home. It was great to have the three separate accommodation options as these worked really well for our family given their different needs. The location was amazing, and the pool was well used given the glorious weather we had. We also spent a day on the inlet with the boat/biscuit and kayaks - fabulous fun. Thank you for your assistance in bringing together what was for us a very special occasion in our lives. All the best

This place will help you make memories with people you love. All amidst a backdrop of private grounds and personal, sweeping views across the ever changing, magnificent Tasman Bay and beyond. You can group together in the welcome, open spaces and then seamlessly transition to one of many thoughtfully designed areas when you feel like something quieter and cosier. You can always get away for some private time with the main house bedrooms, (all with views across the bay, balconies and two of them accessing outdoors) and two separate buildings on the same property with bedrooms, bathrooms and areas to relax. In the hub of this house, you can cook to your hearts content in the most wonderfully equipped kitchen, then dine effortlessly inside, or under the pavilion by the outdoor fire or at the large outdoor table between the salt water pool and the outdoor pizza oven. There's a magical area in the corner of the garden for children to unleash their imaginations - separate and away from the house but easily and unobtrusively observed. This is a place where you can truly slow down, recharge and reconnect. Holiday Nelson are consummately professional and personable I will certainly be using their services again.

Holiday Nelson was fantastic to deal with. Thank you very much for all your help – you were great. The regular communications were reassuring and the billing arrangements were easy. We were very grateful to you for delivering our provisions to the house and setting up the portacot for our arrival. We had a fantastic weekend – it couldn’t have been better. It is a truly beautiful place with lots of activities, coupled with perfect weather, we could have stayed for a week or more. A weekend was too short! We loved the swimming and beautiful walks and views. We had a very special and memorable weekend for the celebration. Thanks again to all the team at Holiday Nelson and the owners of Kina Retreat for making the property available.

Kina Retreat is an absolutely beautiful property, great for large family groups with kids. We had a total of 3 families, with 6 adults and 7 kids, and we had a blast, running around the large gardens, lazing in the hammocks or swimming on the sunny days. The view across the Tasman Bay is absolutely stunning. The property is a short drive from supermarkets at Motueka, as well as multiple wineries, fruit farms and other attractions. arrod and Peta-Jane have been absolutely helpful with this booking, whether it was answering questions about the property or nearby amenities and attractions. Peta-Jane met us upon check-in to show us around the house and answer all our questions.
Raymond Quah - Dec, 2017
Firstly I must say we had an incredible stay and a fantastic time at the house. The weather was kind to us and the pool was starting to get warmer as every day went by with the solar heading doing its thing. The house, Pool house and Tree house worked perfectly for the 5 couples as we all had a room with our own bathrooms. I think we made good use of ALL the facilities with the Sono’s hifi getting a fair ol workout….. (we have one at home and know how good they are). The house is fantastic, well equipped, clean and user friendly.
Geoff Andrew - Oct, 2017
Good Morning, We had such a wonderful stay at Kina Retreat. It was even better than we imagined and everybody was very happy with the choice. The views are amazing, we all took advantage of the beautiful Nelson weather and sat out on the big chair to eat breakfast in the morning, it is a great spot. It really couldn’t have gone better, we had everything we needed, from the sound system all over the house to the comfy TV lounge. We were meant to be going out for dinner on the Saturday night but we loved the house so much we cancelled our reservations and had a BBQ dinner instead, soaking up as much sun as we could around the pool and dancing the night away. Definitely a trip we will all remember, there is even talk of booking Kina again in the future!
R Wicks - Jan, 2017
An incredible home and location. While it rained uncharacteristically for Nelson the home made our stay a wonderful experience!
