Aranui Cottage is located in the heart of beautiful, bustling Mapua. The cottage is in a peaceful and private area nestled in between the popular Mapua Wharf and the local shopping area (less than 5min walk away to both!) Close to the Great Taste Cycle Trail, we are in the perfect location. A cosy, charming, one bedroom place with a lovely rustic feel to it.

Cosy home just a short walk away from Mapua's shops, wine bar, restaurants and supermarket. Lovely sunny sit out area out back. Good value for money without unnecessary additonal costs some hosts seem to add.
