Family Fun with Lasting Memories
Moonraker House, nestled within the native tree canopy overlooking the iconic Split Apple Rock, is a gold mine of adventure for children of all ages, with easy boat access to the Abel Tasman National Park and close proximity to Kaiteriteri and Marahau beaches with adventurous activities.
The area is known for its azure clean waters, beautiful native forests and crisp golden sand, all of which is literally on our doorstep.
Our purpose designed property offers a family hideaway, yet elegant comfort with a picturesque backdrop like no other in the region. Our property is accessible by car, boat and helicopter.
Moonraker House is one of a few properties accommodating and welcoming families to the Nelson and Tasman region to enjoy an exclusive, private setting with children in mind. Our service provides a complete custom designed bundle to ensure you leave holding onto wonderful memories of your precious time together and our region.
Terri provides a consultation service which offers you the flexibility to enjoy a complete custom service or create your own with her support.
This is a self service accommodation but as we know it’s not always easy particularly for the mothers to leave responsibility behind. The house has been designed to give as much free time as possible to have fun with the added bonus to book us to support you as much or as little as you wish. (Child Care available)
Terri has been a celebrant for many years and provides several family orientated ceremonies from weddings, baby naming, renewal of vows, reunions and memorials, so if you have a significant event coming up you might like to take advantage of her expertise.
Our region is full of family orientated fun for all age groups, so don’t hesitate to enlist our help, we are driven to make sure everyone gets the holiday they deserve.
