Beautiful valley with mountain views

 A tranquil setting creating a relaxing stay with more than enough for the kids to do!, walks, rivers, beaches an easy 30 minutes drive away, this was the break we wanted and got, loved it!

 Spacious and a very quiet location. Ideal for a getaway from a busy life, great for families. Beautiful surroundings. 

Beautiful valley with mountain views

 Lovely location tucked away in the hills between the Abel Tasman and Kahurangi national parks and within easy driving distance of both. Very helpful owners and a well maintained, comfortable and well appointed house. 

Beautiful valley with mountain views

 Mountain River Retreat was situated in the most peaceful and relaxing location near the Pearse River. Our daughters absolutely loved their stay with all the wildlife and the great swimming in the Motueka River down the road. Motueka township and Kaiteriteri Beach were much closer than we thought. The house was spotless when we arrived and had a very welcoming feel with plenty of space. Thank you for a very memorable stay and for being great hosts, Edward and Ursula. See you again soon:) 

Beautiful valley with mountain views

 Lovely large property located near motueka. It is situated on a lovely farm with plenty of garden space. It is approx 30 minute drive south of motueka so it was nice and secluded but still close enough. The owners are very nice and booking was very easy and they were available to answer any questions we had. 

Calm Seas - Golden Bay Holiday Home (Tata Beach)

 The views from the house are amazing and the lay out of the property makes it good for couples and small groups. Would be good to see darker curtains on the bedrooms for better privacy and to keep the sun out. I would recommend the house and would stay there again if I get to go back.
