Nelson’s Appleby House and Rabbit Island Huts is set on 25 acres of Waimea Plains land, and boasts 360 degree views of the Mt Arthur ranges, Richmond Hills, and the Waimea Estuary.

Appleby House and Rabbit Island Huts offer two types of accommodation. Appleby House is a contemporary space, with four large bedrooms and luxurious amenities. Rabbit Island Huts and Glamping is a little bit hotel, a little bit glamping, and a little bit traditional Kiwi camping.
