Additional Location Information

Your Nest in Cable Bay is absolute waterfront and enjoys expansive sea and Island views. It's located approximately 25 minutes drive North of Nelson (around 2,500 sunshine hours per year) and approximately 35 minutes drive from Nelson airport. Sunshine, art, wine (25 wineries), boutique breweries and adventure make Nelson a lifestyle mecca with year round holiday ambience. The second oldest city in the country, Nelson was settled by Europeans in 1841. The original inhabitants (Maori) of the area are represented by 6 tribal groups, namely Ngati Kuia, Ngati Toa, Ngati Rarua, Ngati Tama, Ngati Koata and Te Atiawa. The largest fishing seaport in Australasia, Nelson's abundance of fresh seafood coupled with award winning local wines makes for a truly memorable gourmet experience.

Please note there is no public transport servicing Cable Bay so if you don't have your own car you will need to hire one. Off street parking is available.

Cable Bay is a coastal / rural enclave - a tranquil, small community with a focus on beach and water activities e.g. boating, kayaking, swimming, fishing, diving, etc. It takes its name from the site of the first telegraph cable linking New Zealand with the rest of the world (1876). As befits a partially estuarine environment, it is home to many native birds, some of which are quite rare e.g. Royal Spoon Bills, Fern birds, etc. Nearby there is an adventure centre that offers horse trekking, 4WD, trails, sky wire rides and paint ball warfare, etc, etc. A Kayak tour operator is similarly close by, as is a licensed small cafe on Cable Bay foreshore (closed over Winter).The absence of street -lights means guests usually have an impressive starry night-scape and there is a variety of walks nearby suitable for all levels of fitness..Those less energetically inclined can relax on their private deck, maybe with a chilled glass of award winning local Sauvignon Blanc, or meander through our extensive, secluded native garden. We have Kayaks and unisex bicycles you can borrow but you do so entirely at your own risk.

We are fond of describing Cable Bay as the way the world was before it all went mad! We look forward to hosting you.
Ngaire and Jim.
