About Atatu

  • Our rating for this property 
  • Beautiful Home, Exceptional Views, Hot tub!
  • Rural location at the heart of the Moutere Artisan trail.

Atatu means the time just after sunrise when the light spreads across the land. A time when the World stands still in a beautiful & calming way.

This name captures the essence of what is special about this holiday home & location - a place where we hope you too will experience this wonderful feeling.

Atatu is a stunning 420 sq m, 4 bedroom home, with 180° views from the private terrace, across the Moutere hills to Tasman Bay.

It's a great base for outdoor adventures, wine tasting, olive grove picnics, art gallery visits or delicious meals & craft beer in NZ's oldest pub, the nearby Moutere Inn.

Or return to make the most of the glorious hot tub & the well-equipped kitchen and BBQ, to enjoy locally sourced gourmet finds, while watching the sunset and shadows shift.

  • The house is brilliant. Manager is quite sweet. We will come back if we travel to Nelson area again. 房子非常大,经理十分热情细心。到之前已经把屋子空调开开让屋子充满了热气。力荐。 (The house is very big and the manager is very enthusiastic and attentive. By the time the air conditioner was turned on, the room was filled with heat. Highly recommended.)

  • Wonderful stay, so spacious and the view was so calming. We loved relaxing at ātatu and checking out the talented artisans from Moutere to takaka. Nga mihi, chloe

    Chloe Mcfadyen - May, 2020

  • Truly beauty home in a peaceful, spectacular setting. Much larger than expected. Spacious, airy and bright with great views and complete privacy.

    Rob Ornstein - Mar, 2020

  • A lovely large house in a quiet spot that was perfect as a base for exploring the area.

    Jil Leong - Feb, 2020

  • This home is over the top!!!! We have been traveling for seven months in Australia, Bali, and now New Zealand. Not many places can blow our minds but this view and home did just that. You could stay here and not need to leave, it’s spacious, comfortable, outfitted to cook, ect. Also, perfect for kids. It’s was hard to leave to check out all the surrounding sights and found ourselves wanting to get home to grab a good book and read on the daybed enjoy the views. The hot tub is a bonus and so enjoyable in the evenings watching sunset. Us and our kids loved it!! They would be running around first thing eating a fresh apples from the orchard. Don’t hesitate to book!!! Family of five traveling for a year abroad. Follow our adventures on Instagram: @ThePorterCrew

  • Beautiful home with a view to die for. Great location to explore the foodie delights of the region. Huge interior, well equipped with a modern kitchen, spacious bathrooms (with fluffy towels and luxurious bathrobes), a relaxing hot tub, lots of great books and movies, and, importantly, a Nespresso machine. A real home-from-home experience. Would definitely return.

    James Dowle - Feb, 2020

  • A large house with very spectacular views. Was a great place to go for our group of friends to chill out and catch up

    Bevan - Jan, 2020

  • Wow- what a house and what a view. The photos do not do this place justice. If you want to get away from it all with a bit of luxury then look no further. Great communication and beautiful place. Hot tub a real bonus.

    Katie - Jan, 2020

  • Wonderful stay. Beautiful and grand home with lovely touches. We had three couples with two babies in this home, and it was perfect. Great in door outdoor flow, and fantastic fast communication with owners.

    Johnny And Katy - Jan, 2020

  • Just book it! Perfect location, great house, gorgeous views... we could have spent a week there if possible. House is a lot larger than you think and 6-8 people is very very comfortable. The kitchen and barbecue are a cook dream, beds are super confortable, lovely Linen, and the spa is just cherry on the top... Neudorf winery and Olives are a MUST do, Forsters for lunch is tasty and Abel Tasman day trip a great highlight. Make sure you keep one day aside to just stay home, and enjoy the house! It’s worth every $.

    Bo - Jan, 2020

    Thanks Bo!!! We are so very happy you loved it. Hope to have you stay another time. Basia. :)

  • One of the most amazing Airbnbs I have ever stayed in. A big wonderful villa with a view you can get used to. Totally recommendable!

    Jens Viere - Jan, 2020

  • Fabulous place to stay - very large house perfect for entertaining. The spa is lovely for star gazing and it is exceptionally quite. Would highly recommend!

    Charlotte - Dec, 2019

  • We were really most reluctant to leave Hawkridge ( Basia's place)as it was one of the most wonderful airB & Bs one could hope to stay at. The house in its beautiful hilltop setting is so very spacious, and beautifully appointed, with really stunning, panoramic views over the Tasman and Nelson Bays area. One of the delights was observing the very special shadow effects in the hills in the early morning. Basia and manager Monique made sure everything was comfort plus, and even though the weather was a little disappointing, the house was still warm, with a very effective heat pump in the large kitchen. It was wonderful to find some goodies in place on our arrival, along with coffee pods etc. The kitchen is very well appointed for some great gourmet activities. In the evening taking a spa, while the moon was rising over the horizon, was unique. Basia's indications on activities and eating options in the area were also something that we took up with enthusiasm. Great care and sensivitiy has gone into the presentation and furnishing of this premier accomodation property.

    Tim - Nov, 2019

    Thanks so much for the lovely thoughts. We really enjoyed having you to stay and very much look forward to your next visit! Basia.
