Pepin is a unique property in New Zealand, if not the world: an entire private island, 1,280 acres, with easy road access 20 minutes drive from Nelson, a thriving NZ city with a national 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. Extensive tracks and paths around the island provide access to secluded beaches and coves rarely visited by people.
