Orchard View is situated on 20 acres of private land which includes pasture, native bush, garden & riverside. The cottage overlooks the property witjh pine forest to the rear.

Well away from the road the cottage is ideally situated for families with children, trout fishermen (as the Riwaka River borders the property), & those people who just want to sit back and relax.

It is also a perfect base from which to explore the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park or laze on the beaches of Kaiteriteri & Marahau which are all only 15 minutes away by car.

A day trip 'over the hill' to Golden Bay, Harewoods Hole and Hobbit country is a must.

Orchard View can 4 people in 2 bedrooms and freshly laundered bed linen & towels are provided. A fifth guest can be accommodated on the sofa bed & a cot is available on request.

The kitchen is equipped with electric stove, large fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster etc & in the living/dining area there is Sky TV, radio/CD player and telephone for local calls.

The large deck which catches the sun all day is furnished with gas BBQ, tables & chairs for outdoor living. Here you can relax, enjoy the stunning views across the valley, listen to the abundance of native birdsong and watch the antics of the chickens & peacocks.

A three minute stroll will bring you to the riverside or feel free to explore the property and make friends with the animals which include dogs, cats, horses, llamas, free range hens, turkeys, peacocks, ducks and other small farm animals.....plus plenty of native bird life such as the friendly wekas and fantails. Great for the children!

The Riwaka Resurgence is where the northern branch of the Riwaka River emerges from the depths of the Takaka Hill and is a 10 minute drive or an easy 40 minute walk away from the cottage.

Complimentary tea, coffee, sugar and condiments are provided on arrival as are basic cleaning materials. Other provisions can be found in Motueka a 15 minute drive away.

  • A beautiful cottage set in a quiet valley

    A beautiful cottage set in a quiet valley. Well appointed, everything we needed, clean and private. Toys for kids and animals galore. Loved lying in bed listening to the llamas laughing and all the other birds and animal noises.

    Location and garden are five star especially for two. Property is very comfortable but not luxurious.

    The property is in a gorgeous valley and we had a great stay there enjoying the views and feeding all the chickens. Our family highly recommends this beautiful location and awesome hosts. Minutes to some great hiking and beaches too!

    We enjoyed our stay in this charming cottage which was well stocked with everything we needed. The setting is peaceful and picturesque and we loved watching the chickens and being visited by geese, ducklings and a peacock. The cottage is away from the hustle and bustle but within easy driving distance of beautiful beaches and the amenities of Motueka. Do bring insect repellent though, the sandflies love this spot as much as we did.

  • The setting is beautiful, surrounded with wonderful mountains and rivers

    The setting is beautiful, surrounded with wonderful mountains and rivers. Its lovely and peaceful. No internet or phone covage was perfect and provided us a real oportunity to relax (Internet available down the road if you needed it). The cottage is lovely, with a wonderful deck. I spent many a hour just enjoying the views. The cottage is very well stocked with everything you need. It is a special place that we would love to visit again.
