Accommodation options for your Zilience retreat

The distinctive and unique styles of the different accommodations, and their stunning surroundings at Adele and Roger's property, help put the zing into your Zilience retreat.


Situated on a lifestyle block a few minutes from the charming seaside village of Mapua and Ruby Bay near Nelson, the Zilience environment is an absolute joy. Guests describe it as paradise. All rooms are warm and sunny and the property has a lovely rural outlook with glimpses of the sea and mountain views to the east. 


Plus there's the She-Shack! The tree-edged small lake, fed by a natural watercourse, provides a beautiful backdrop for this purpose-built shabby-chic old-world hut and large deck, designed with love just for you. Hang up your robe and towel and slip into the spa and soak up the stars. What more could you want? 

Zilience offers you a tiered approach to your accommodation with rooms in:

 

Our eco lodge: Looking out on gorgeous country views, this is a new, sunny, architecturally-designed, stand-alone smart sustainability home with four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

 

Our rustic chic cottage: Full of quirky rustic chic with a lovely designer garden, private and with its own access, the cottage is warm and sunny with two downstairs bedrooms and a mezzanine semi-open loft bedroom.

Our shabby-chic suite: Featuring French flair, this shabby-chic suite is stunning and has a high-end King bed plus single, a generous bathroom, separate toilet, kitchenette and a gorgeous French verandah. The suite is part of Adele's family home but is separate with its own access.
