Clifftops Retreat, Nelson, New Zealand

Clifftops Retreat is a 1100 sq ft luxury cottage perched high on the cliffs near Nelson, overlooking sandy beaches, the glittering Tasman Sea and the sparkling lights of Nelson.

This luxury jewel was architecturally designed and encompasses all the modern conveniences. The kitchen is fully-fitted, the lounge has a CD and Video player, a laptop with high speed wireless Internet and Sky TV. The bathroom is a show stopper with its shower only separated from the lush garden and pond by a glass wall.

A spa pool set right on the cliff edge offers you breathtaking views while the warm water relaxes and envelopes you.

This private and secluded villa, set in 5 park-like acres, caters for just two people. It is absolutely fully self-contained in every sense of the word. It has the luxury of a 5 star Lodge suite and is more then ideal for those discerning travellers who wish to be independent.

The cottage is designed for self-catering but the local first class restaurants provide plenty of options also. For the active traveller there are three National Parks nearby and the ocean provides plenty of opportunity for water sports. Relaxing garden, winery or crafts tours are also yours to enjoy.

Location and Transfers

The lodge is situated to the west of Nelson on Ruby Bay, 30 minutes by car from Nelson Airport.

On one of those famous sunny Nelson days light up the barbecue on your private patio overlooking the bay and enjoy the great produce this region has to offer.
After a day of activities return home to your serviced cottage, wind down while watching a movie on your Sky channel TV or listen to some great CDs from the extensive CD collection.
After a fabulous dinner at one of the nearby award-winning restaurants return home and take a long soak in the spa overlooking the sparkling lights of Nelson, then curl up in front of a log fire with a glass of fine New Zealand wine and a stack of magazines and books. At the end of a wonderful day retreat to your turned down bed and dream of another great day to come
