Pepin is unique: an entire private island, 521.4 hectares, with easy road access, 20 minutes drive from Nelson City and its airport.

Pepin is an extraordinarily beautiful place that captivates visitors. It is its own spectacular landscape with rolling paddocks, native bush, sea, cliffs and beaches.
Pepin is a successful farm combining grazing, pine plantations and discrete, small scale tourism accommodation. The island carries approximately 1,900 sheep and 100 cattle, with the temperate climate and soil allowing all year grazing. There is abundant water with springs gravity-feeding water tanks and irrigation systems around the island. Regular testing has shown the water quality to be exceptionally pure.

Pepin has extensive accommodation for owners, tenants and short stay guests. A total of 17 bedrooms. The farmhouse is a traditional weatherboard home with seven bedrooms, three cottages nearby, one is 3 bedrooms and two are 2 bedrooms and the 3 one bedroom chalets brings the total to 17. Farm buildings include a woolshed, stockyards, multi-bay sheds, storerooms and shelters around the island.

There is a large home orchard with a very wide variety of fruit trees, macadamia and olive trees, as well as small pine plantations nearing maturity. Almost all of the island is frost-free, providing a productive and long growing season.

The eco-chalets are on spectacular parts of the island with a chance to enjoy a night or two away from the and experience the magic of Pepin.

Pepin is connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway maintained by Nelson City Council and is useable in all tides, with gated access, allowing you to come and go whenever you want. 1,280 acres of private island, near a city and with easy access. A truly unique proposition.
