Hidden Treasures

Your hosts are Mark, Tania, Indie and Malo the dog.


Come join our family to enjoy the tranquillity at the end of the Maitai Valley.

The dream of setting up some biking cabins was initially discussed by Mark and Tania on their honeymoon in 2016 as they cycled John O'Groats to Landsend in the UK. 3 years later and

with the addition of Indie our daughter we moved to the beautiful Maitai Valley, we quickly added into the whanau a Brittany Spaniel called Malo.


Our goal was to set up accommodation for those who wanted an affordable spot with a relaxed atmosphere. Somewhere people could use as a base while they adventured in the local area and come back to in the evenings to share their stories around a camp fire (fire season permitting) and recharge in natural surroundings. The peace and quiet of the valley, the natural bush on the property, the accessibility to Nelson and what the rest of the Tasman area could offer are all key attributes in the foundation of Maitai Whare Iti.
