Escape to our Awarded Retreat in Tasman, New Zealand

The Estate

Come and visit our exclusive and modern luxury retreat right on the beautiful Kina Peninsula overlooking the Tasman Bay and Moutere Inlet.

The perfect Getaway...

Located just 45 minutes out of Nelson and 20 minutes from the Abel Tasman National Park, the Windhover Estate is perfectly located to explore the Tasman Region or simply to relax and enjoy the breath-taking views over the Moutere Inlet and the Tasman Bay.

The Estate is located on the Kina Peninsula on the top of the South Island of New Zealand. Its pristine, long beaches and rough cliffs are a well kept secret that allow for tranquil, long walks on the beach away from the crowds.
