Your Hosts:

Kay and Geoff Gudsell have been operating 'Arapiki' since 1996. Having lived at 21 Arapiki Road for 17 years they made the necessary alterations to operate their Homestay/B&B when their sons left home. Many of the improvements to 'Arapiki' such as landscaping and redecorating have been made by themselves.

Geoff teaches history part-time at Nayland College secondary school while Kay does some relief kindergarten teaching during the off-season when their business is a little quieter. They have travelled overseas and enjoy meeting guests from all around the world. Both of them keep active and have interests such as gardening, cycling, tramping, playing tennis, jogging or walking , social dancing and reading. Geoff is a member of the Nelson North Lions Club.

At 'Arapiki' they have a Tonkinese cat who usually like to greet visitors. Kay and Geoff believe it is important to try and achieve a balance between spending time with visitors to make them feel welcome and letting them have their privacy and independence.

Directions:

When approaching Arapiki from the South (Murchison):

When you come to Richmond you will arrive at the first set of traffic lights for hundreds of kilometres - go straight ahead onto the Richmond Deviation and Whakatu Drive but after approximately a kilometre follow the exit signs to 'Stoke'- you will use 2 traffic circles close together to do so. Continue along Main Road Stoke for over 2 kilometres until you come to 2 sets of traffic lights close together. Arapiki Road turns off to the right approximately 1 kilometre past these traffic lights.

When approaching Arapiki from the North (Blenheim):

You will come towards Nelson along Queen Elizabeth Drive. Do not turn left at the traffic circle which would take you into Nelson City but continue straight ahead. You are to follow signs for places to the south of Nelson (Murchison etc) or to the west (Takaka etc). This means that you will turn right at the next traffic circle to travel along Haven Road and then Rocks Road where you will be along the waterfront. Go through the 2 traffic circles near the KFC and then along Tahunanui Drive. Go through the next major traffic circle by taking the 'Stoke' exit. Turn right at the intersection past the BP Station and Arapiki Road is the very first road on the left.
